    Mack r685st and dm600
    What is the difference in the two? Not a truck guy as far as 1:1 goes. They look almost the same on the box arts.

    My original issue of this kit doesn't have the Alcoa wheels, only the wheels on the box. I don't think this kit originally had two sets of wheels.

    to much other free sites available, Facebook, youtube, other forums ect. So charing probably wouldn't work. I buy every issue from my LHS but don't subscribe because of the timing also, could be the reason some companies don't advertise products.

    Had a few torn, my mail man likes to fold mine around the rest of my mail with a big crease in it. Then one of my scale model magazines comes with a  label stuck to the cover that hides most of the cover contents, if that doesn't change I will not be renewing it. Bags would eliminate that, but good luck.

    I got a 2mm yesterday and have been doing my own testing. The look is truly amazing for touch up. I applied it to a few scrap sprues and let It dry good. Handling it to much turned mine dull or silver looking. Then I sprayed testors clear lacquer over it and it turned silver. So If the alclad clear works I would suggest it.  As far as the pen I pulled the tip all the way out of the pen, it is roughly an inch long and has the same shape on both ends so you could flip it or possibly use a sharp exacto knife and shape one end for fine detail which I plan to do. Testors also makes replacement fine tips for thier paint markers that also might be a possibility. I don't have any so I don't know for sure if they would fit but it's just a thought. Just wanted to share what I have tried so far with the others here. Tomorrow I will shave one end of the tip down for some fine detail work and see how it turns out on some window trim.

    Well for this project I am not using the grill. I just need the upper and lower nose and bumper. It is for a short track dirt car.

    Thanks snake, looks like they shut the website down for awhile due to overwhelming orders due to retirement. If anybody else knows of any let me know, if not I will just have to wait until they start taking orders again.

    Try putting it in a zip lock baggie, I have been doing that lately with my glues and paints and they seam to be lasting longer. I don't get to build everyday so my supplies set on the shelf more than not.

    Scale finishes clear
    I read somewhere lately that they have a 2 part automotive clear. I sent two emails to them with no response. Do they have a phone number or another way of contacting them?
