    Thanks mate!
    The awful pictures don't show it, the the orange is AWFUL at covering.
    I started with a white basecoat, and even after using the entite jar, there are STILL spots that arent as solid as id like.
    Id recommend buying 2 jars, just in case ;-)

    Tamiya Porsche 959
    Howdy all,
    There seems to have been a few of these built lately. Good to see, they're a pretty machine :-D

    Here's my take on it. Built OOB, an ENTIRE jar of Testors 'Turn Signal amber' was airbrushed on, followed by PLENTY of clear.

    Excuse the rubbish photos, the pics were taken on my old camera. One of these days, ill invest in a roll of blue cardboard...

    Revell '69 Ford Torino Tallagega
    G'day all.

    This is Revell's kit, fairly stock, just lowered. Paint is Tamiya Rattlecan Racing Blue.

    My first attempt at pinstriping the interior. Turned out ok, I think!

    Cheers for looking.

    As said above, I think there are 2 completely different mindsets when building. Contest builds and fun builds.

    For many years, I was stuck in the contest build mindset. Everything I did 'had' to be full of every bit of detail I could fit, I 'couldn't' start on a model until I had all the right references at my disposal. I found the novelty wore off pretty quickly.
    With the fun build mindset, I actually finish things. I'm not afraid to experiment with different techniques (because if it doesn't work perfectly, who cares!), and subsequently my models look better for it.

    Its a hobby. It's supposed to be fun. Just have fun with your builds, and you can't go wrong
