    Thanks guys.  Both good suggestions.  So far I have only done small less complicated parts in c.f..
    I would prefer to polish then wax.  Adding a clear coat is just one more thing that can go wrong!!!!

    Caterham carbon fiber printed plastic.
    If you have seen the 1/12 cycle fender version of this Tamiya kit you know the nose and fenders have a carbon fiber pattern printed in the plastic.  My question is can this be polished without losing the pattern?
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks Bob.  Since I have both kits maybe I can make the Heller kit more like the American model.  At least, lights should be no problem to swap.

    It's tempting, but I regret to say I am a scale snob.  It just won't fit in with other cars and bikes I have.
     
    Thanks,

    I was hoping for the 288 GTO in 1/12th.  The bike will be welcome whatever it is but I would have preferred a road bike.

    I just received my 1/8 Heller Honda 750. I also have the MPC version.  I believe the Heller will be more detailed.  I cannot yet determine which one is more accurate.
    I hope they produce some detail sets. All of my detailing parts are 1/12.
    Has anyone built this one?
    Thanks,
    Joe.

    Wanted: Recommendations for Shelby Cobra book
    Looking for a gift for a cobra fan.  More interested in the roadsters vs coupes and more technical pictures than history.  Price under $100 if possible, does not need to be new.  He collects books.

    Is anyone else having trouble contacting Norm at Replicas and Miniatures?  I have been calling for two weeks and all I get is the recording.
    Thanks for any help.

    Detail Sets or Aftermarket for Tamiya Caterham
    I was fortunate to find a Tamiya Caterham after a long search (Thanks Tom).  Are there any aftermarket upgrades for this kit?
    I heard of an Antares set but I don't know if there are parts for the BDR version kit #10201.
    Thanks,
    Joe.

    Very nice Ray.  The red looks perfect as I remember seeing them.  What did you use?
    Thanks for sharing,
