Hello......I got the primer on the body and finished up all the body work.......I put on a base coat of H.O.K. Orion Silver and then shot H.O.K. Kandy Red.......I pinstriped the cab with  White and Orange  1/16 KwikStripe tape..... The 1/16 KwikStripe was still a little to wide so I cut some strips in half with # 11 Exacto Blade ....... I like the width now..........thanks for looking

John.... Killer Paint work. Your paint jobs are always some of the very best on here. With out a doubt this is going to 100 times way better than the original. Nice work, It should make Mark very proud he chose you for this one. Again nice job!

And let the jousting begin...

I enjoy any good builds, I don't limit myself to specific styles or types. I don't just comment on my own builds or a select few members. I like to see what everyone is doing. Sharing techniques and experiences. Your both talented builders that have inspired the hobbiest. 

And while the subject may be a turd, the model is amazing.

WOW, one (or more) people forgot to take their meds.

Having seen Chris be constantly supportive of John and his talents, I a little surprised at John's response to Chris' post.

I'm hoping all parties will just chalk it up to people "having a bad day" and move on...isn't that what friends and comrades do?

Hi Mark.......I use RM 5800 Urethane Clear   3 part.........no,I never polish any of my paint jobs out......if I have a piece of dust in the paint I will sand it out with 2500 and then polish that out.......thanks for asking

Wow, the pinstriping tape worked perfectly and the paint looks great!

Thanks for using and plugging the glue! The web address is actually laskiscale.com and I really appreciate the mention.

This model will be a hit at the GSL!
