    Thanks Jim! You are correct, I've got them on backwards. DUHHHHHHH says Tom.  Wasn't paying attention to detail. They're just pressed on though so it'll be an easy fix.

    Mazda 787B
    Started on 7/14/15, this could be my quickest build since a 50 year layoff. Still have to do mirrors, antennae, glue the wing on and of course, decals. Hopefully under glass by the weekend.
    White hides a multitude of mistakes.

    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?

    But are you sure that it's to scale?

    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.
