  1. Jaguar XK 120, Revell

    Ditto on all the positive comments. Color choice, finish and attention to detail such as the floor mat part of the floor being a little darker really makes this one stand above.
  2. 2K Clear

    Thanks, Bill. That's all I needed to hear. I don't need thicker layers.
  3. I've seen this term used many times on the forum with high approval results. I've done a search and came up with numerous brands. It's obvious 2K clear is a generic term for a type of clear. Am I wrong? Is there a preferred brand for modelers?
  4. What did you get today?

    Top Gear
  5. JDM Legends

    Had a friend that would loan me his 1 year old 72 240Z occasionally and raced a 71 510. Love those cars and I've already watched the first episode of the show. The show's OK, the cars are super.

    What are you using the double sided art tape for?
  7. keep stopping at the end of my builds

    I still use mine for chassis and some interior parts. You won't be sorry.

    The Paasche H is simple, inexpensive and easy to clean. If you want your building to take a leap forward, you've got to learn how to airbrush. Get some old model bodies and practice on them. Make sure your air source is adjustable, dry and clean.

    If that's your stumbling block, I recommend Tamiya spray paints. If you want to try an airbrush, get a Paasche H.

    Those rallye cars! WOW!
  11. Great Amber Paint

    Yep.
  12. Great Amber Paint

    Actually, I was hoping for pics of the application process. Just trying to imagine the look of the amber over the orange apricot.

    Sounds good. Pictures?
  14. Tamiya vs Testors

    For brushing small parts, I prefer acrylic, particularly craft acrylics. I never liked craft acrylics until I started thinning them with Liquitex Flow Aid. Makes them much easier to work with, whether hand or air brushing. Hand brushing lacquers is not easy. Lacquer dries too fast.
  15. Hobby Towns cutting back on models?

    Seems like that's where everything is going. Panera Bread just started local delivery. Pretty soon, people won't leave their homes for anything.
