  1. Good luck, if I still lived in Indiana I would love to attend.
  2. I do not think I have ever sprayed clear in under 24 hours, but that has a lot to do with my time more than the plan. I have been using 2K lately, but may go back to standard clears, they just feel more scale correct to me.
  3. That is very odd, I have used Scalefinishes MANY times, with no issues. I would say that regardless of what brands you use, if you are using a base coat that is a different brand than the topcoat/clear, always worth spray a spare part, then test that spare part before shooting onto your projectject.
  4. Looking good, I always enjoy seeing these big boats.
  5. 213 has only been out around 5 weeks. Given the MCM is not a monthly publication, I would guess we still have a small wait for 214.
  6. Is it possibly to house sensors? I know they are in multiple points on many cars.
  7. This past weekend, I finished up the Monogram Blue Bandito from the (2014?) reissue. One thing I did not notice when I first bought it when new until I started the project was that the front right fender was short shot, so I filled it in with melted sprue from the same kit, no filler, only primer was used. Paint is from an old bottle of Pactra Boyd Chezoom Blue, with 2K clear, unpolished. This was originally intended to be a box stock build, but the kit glass was too small for the frame, so I had to cut acetate to make the replacement glass. Still is a box top build tho. 🙂 If you like, you can click the link below and see the album which includes some in build up pictures. https://public.fotki.com/machman/models/builds-2023/blue-bandito-box-stock/img-0897.html
  8. Ouch, bummer but looks like a redo in your future
  9. Thanks for sharing your story, welcome! There is a lot of great information here, and great people.
  10. Made me smile right away, very nice to see these versions and it looks like you had a great time.
  11. Always enjoy seeing these being built
  12. Thank you, greatly appreciate the additional information
  13. Another great issue with a good variety of subject matter.
  14. Thank you. Based on youu comment above, it sounds like you are NOT buying the kit, or their basecoat, just the 6oz of Chromem correct?
  15. Making the most of the situation I would say. Looking really good
  16. Just watched this Barbatos Rex review. In this review he clears, and it turns more aluminum looking, but it does good with Tamiya color clears to look like Candy, and he also shows it pulls off easy. One thing not mentioned above, or in this video, is durability over time. From what I have seen so far, there are other more viable options. This review was just posted just hours ago today.
  17. Glad you captured some photos Mike, I got busy yapping with folks and missed my chance.
