bingo, suppose to make bright reds pop, from what I have read Ferrai uses a pink primer under their bright reds. I ordered some from seal model but it is going to take 2 months to get here. Would like to find a closer source if possible. Cannot find anything stateside yet.
I use to visit escale at least once a week to see what was new. I really enjoyed the guys over there that focused on motorcycles, some amazing builds in that category as well as all the others, nice group and I will miss the forum
I have entered contest since 2010 when I really got back into modeling, I have won my fair share from the contest I have entered, I have won Plaques and medals, Which I much prefer over a trophy as to me they would be easier to display, which one day I eventually will. I have a dedicated space in my hobby room for the awards I do have, just have yet to get around to displaying them, they are currently all stacked up.
As nice as awards are, I have to 100% agree with this one, I like the feeling of placing at a contest, but the one time I have had my model in a magazine is better than all of my awards combined.
