    Absolutely stunning!! Beautiful build and presentation. Could you give us some details on the paint?? Enamel, acrylic, lacquer etc?? Amazing!

    ok i think i understand. So basically an "acrylic enamel" or "acrylic lacquer" paint is still basically an enamel and a lacquer paint. So only when a paint is a pure acrylic and the enamel or lacquer designation is not attached to it, can it be safe to assume its water or alcohol clean-up.

    paint confusion.
    can someone explain what the difference is between Acrylic, acrylic enamel and acrylic lacquer? Are they all water based, can they all be thinned and cleaned with water? I always thought enamel meant "oil based" and lacquer meant "lacquer based?

    can you post pics of your Acrylic painted models? Thanks!
    Would love to see some hobbiests acrylic painted models. Up to now i've only used enamels when painting my models. Some how in my mind you just won't get the same results with acrylic vs. enamels paint. Would love to see some nice acrylic builds to compare. I love the idea of water clean up!! Thanks!

    water slide decals for stock 1/25th scale
    Hi, i was wondering if anyone makes water slide decals for 1/25th scale models. i'm currently finishing up a 69 pontiac gto judge and sanded down the raised GTO lettering on both sides near the doors. The reason i did this was because i remember donn yost mentioning that it was too small to BMF and that slide decals were available for these type of details. I forgot who he mentioned sold this type of thing. does anyone know?? thanks in advance.

    hi cato, basically thats what i;m doing now. would like something a bit thinner than the dollar store alumi foil.
  12. foxbat426 added a post in a topic BMF replacements   

    Hmmm interesting. HVAC tape would seem pretty thick to me though. can you post a pic of a model you did with it??

    BMF replacements
    Wondering if anyone has stumbled across some real good BMF replacements that are cheap and easily accessable?? right now i'm using the dollar store tin foil and while it works well, i wish there was something thinner and easier to work with.

  15. foxbat426 added a post in a topic how to two tone model cars?   

    great info everyone - thanks, ill be trying these tips soon. for awhile anyway i'll be sticking to cars that have chrome seperating the two colors, such as the edsel and 57 chev among others. Should i just bring the tape (and paint) onto the raised "chrome" area. If it bleeds a bit, so what right?? It'll get covered with BMF anyway?? Is this correct?
