I am recently retired and thought I would get back into model car building for a hobby. Built many models in my pre and early teens which I truly enjoyed. However so many things have changed in fifty years that I have many questions. Here are a couple.

I am interested in BMF. I have never had anything like this available in years past.

Where can it be purchased? How is it applied?( I assume it is self-adhesive) How much overlap is recommended during application. What is the best method of burnishing? Trimming? This may sound dumb but is it applied after the model is completely finished and clear coated?

Also, where is a good place to purchase parts such as rims, tires, engines, etc? (1/24 - 1/25 scale)

I'm just getting started again and have no scrap parts from previous models.

Sorry for the length of these questions. I have many more to post.
