    I know this is a silly question, but does your compressor have a tank, and if so, have you drained it? It's amazing how much water will accumulate in a tank in a short time.

    The Tamiya Lotus Europa has a DOHC I4.

    Thanks, Trevor! I did use the metal transfers, and I had the same problem you did. They would barely stick to the model, but stuck like crazy to the carrier film. I ended up placing each one individually and gluing them on with Future. A pain in the shorts but it worked.

    Thanks, John! The box shows white, red, and black, and I suspect those were the stock colors for the Special. I wanted green, so there!

    Thanks, Mike! I've been following your TR-4. It looks like you're getting close. I wish there was a kit in 1/25 of that car.

    Thanks, Frank! A lot of the credit should go to Tamiya. A very precise and well engineered kit.

    Thanks, Curt! I was checking one out in the pits at the Vintage Races last year. They are small! Maybe I could have fit when I was 18... It was fun to watch it race, tho. Fast!

    Thanks, Snake! It was fun mixing the paint, I just kept adding black until I liked the color. I got lucky on the quantity, I had none left over.

    I know what you mean. Standing next to one, the roof is about the height of my navel. If I ever did get in one, I'm sure I'd never get out again. Thanks, Ray!
