  1. 63 VETTE CONVERTABLE

    That shade of blue works so well on the 'Vette! That is a fun kit.
  2. Tamiya R33 Skyline

    This looks fantastic! I agree that the R34 wheels work much better...have you considered painting them a steel or gunmetal color? Still darker than the kit chrome, but not so dark that they lose detail...
  3. Removing pre-decorated graphics

    Thanks for the replies, guys! Been a hectic week, so I haven't had a chance to try anything. I will try the 91% soak first, since I have that on hand.
  4. Mustangs!

    Lovely stuff here, everyone! Here's my matching pair:
  5. There is a hobby shop in town that is closing its doors, sadly...the owners are retiring...so I picked up one of these. For $4, why not. Does anyone know the best method to remove the pre-printed graphics? I could just prime and paint over, but I'm afraid the graphics will just sort of show as a raised area underneath the paint. Ideas and thoughts would be much appreciated!

    Drop-dead gorgeous!!!
  7. Tom Daniels California Custom Vette

    Very, very nice! This will always be one of my favorite kits

    Gorgeous stuff here, everyone! Here are a few of mine:
  9. This is one of those kits that always catches my eye at the store but I haven't pulled the trigger on yet...yours looks great!
  10. '77 Pacer Wagon sleeper

    You had me at "Pacer"...very unexpected swap, well done!

  13. Aoshima Lamborghini aventador roadster - new member

    Very well done!
  14. micheals kits

    I stopped by my local Michael's yesterday. They had a handful of kits that were on clearance, but the clearance price was $11.99-12.99, so I passed.
  15. ’73 Vega Kammback

    The KMET and KLOS decals on the rear just seal the deal for me...that's gorgeous!
