    How to use Tamiya Window Masks
    I'm building the Tamiya Mazda 787B. Can someone help with some tips on how to use the supplied window masks without messing them up?

    The most fun was anytime I raced. Fun cars like my Royale Formula Ford, several Formula Vees, a couple of Miatas and the most fun was the '60 Bugeye Sprite. Fun tracks like VIR, Road Atlanta, Roebling Road, Barber Motorsports Park and Taladega Grand Prix Raceway.

    You're doing the same thing I did 3 1/2 years ago in my basement. After trying to build in an open basement, I gave up and framed in a shop. Mine is 12 x 20. You'll be so glad when you're done.

    Can you give us an idea of your mixing ratios? I've been mixing 100 ml batches of acrylic thinner and add 2 ml of Liquitex Professional Flow-Aid Fluid Medium and 2 ml of Liquitex Professional Slow Dri Blending Medium. I usually thin the acrylic paint 1:1 with the thinner mixture.

    I love that movie. Graduated in 62 so the movie felt like it was a part of my life. The 32 and 58 were both kits, I think.

    Yes.

    220 is too coarse. You need to finish sanding with something finer. I usually go with 360 or 400 to start, then 600 to 800 and finish with 1000 or 1500. The smoother it is before you spray, the smoother it'll be after you spray.
