  12. JUST NOTICED THIS THREAD OF INFO IN THE LAST FEW MOMENTS....READ EVERY POSTING, AND AM TRULY CONCERNED. I HAVEN'T BEEN ACTIVE IN THE HOBBY THE LAST 3 YEARS OR SO, BUT IN CHECKING MY BMF STOCK, I HAVE ABOUT 2/3 OF AN OLDER SHEET THAT WORKED, AND STILL WORKS PERFECTLY, AND 1/4 OF A VERY OLD SHEET THAT, EVEN THOUGH CRACKED A BIT, STILL WORKS OK WITH A LITTLE TLC.........THIS NEWS IS ALL NEW TO ME, AND I WILL CHECK OUT THE STOCK AT MY LHS TOMORROW HERE IN ONTARIO, CANADA.....BACK IN THE DAY, I USED PACTRA SILVER BRUSH ENAMEL TO DO WINDOW TRIM AND LOTS OF OTHER BITS AND SUCH....MAY HAVE TO LOOK IN
  13. I live in an apartment, same one for years, and I paint on the balcony, weather and humidity permitting. Tamiya sprays are usually the order of the day, but for some flats I use basic Testors enamel for various parts.... I find Tamiya colors and their clear, pearl clear, and semi gloss are excellent, and have used them for ages... I am very 'old school' and after prepping bodies, I tape them on the underside to coat hangers, all bent to my liking, and then proceed with a couple of light, dust coats, waiting 5-8 minutes, then laying on a heavier coat, waiting another 5 minutes, to finish wit
  14. I JUST CANNOT ANSWER YOUR INQUIRY UNLESS A PUCK IS DROPPED SOMEWHERE AND A TIMMIES DRIVE THRU IS OPEN....LOL.....WELCOME FROM THE HAMMER, THE CITY THEY ALL LOVE TO HATE, HAMILTON, ONT......the ACE......πŸ˜…

Very, very smart looking piece....one of my all time favorite AMT kits from my original '68 issue from Xmas '68, thru the years.......you don't see this kit built too often, so it's great to see one so nicely executed....perfect color combo with the orange/ white stripes as well...great work .....best, the Ace...πŸ˜„
