  1. I've built both the Monogram and Fujimi kits, they are simple (slot kit-ish) and turn out cool. Either will give you quick satisfaction However I preferred the Monogram body shape. I'd suggest picking up a set of aftermarket tires/wheels for either kit from here; https://www.modelbuilderswh.com/collections/wheels-tires/products/chapparel-wheels-and-tires-1-24th-scale The decal sheets will probably be wasted however I don't have a source for em. These kits offer a lot in terms of adding detail etc... all up to your desire and imagination. Here's one of mine, sa

  3. Hi all, I was curious if any one wouldn't mind posting the dimensions that I've outlined red? It's a real pretty engine.
  4. Wow, this thread multiplied over night, cool. I've decided to go with a solution a bit more versatile which uses my Shop Vac and oven. Less working parts to break as those will work for a very long time. It's 12"x12" with an adapter in the background (6"x6"?). * The unit pictured is by Pedro on Etsy. After some perusing, I believe his to be the best for this sort of approach.
  5. Wow, thank you kindly Mark, great advise. I did see a dental grade unit on Amazon for ~$130 but will look else where for variety. It's largest complaint was filament heat up time but it's not like I'm cranking out parts for distribution or anything. Thanks again.
  6. Esteemed builders and crafters extraordinaire, I've always wanted to get my hands on some sort of vacuforming machine for general hobby/crafts needs. So I'm reaching out to see what you would all look for in a used Mattel version? Basically advise similar to what one would give in used car shopping. I haven't really seen any new ones by other brands that I like but am searching. Thanks in advance.
  7. WOW!!! Looks smooth as butter. Very very nice! Looking forward to my hybrid of sorts Creos PS 290.
  8. I found this link very helpful; http://paulbudzik.com/miniature-spray-guns/miniature-spray-guns-pg-3.html
  9. Thanks Steve. I actually prefer this as less is more in my book.
  10. Thanks for the feedback, it helps quite a bit! I'm going with the Creos 290 as I'm sure that's what Steve meant. I've been eyeing it for a while now and might as well pull the trigger (pun intended). I still have my H&S Infinity which is a great art work type brush that I've used on my models before. But the over spray and narrow pattern even with a .4mm tip doesn't suite me well.
  11. Hello, I've been watching some of Paul Budziks videos where he mentions spray guns being a better choice for scale modeling then air brushes. His reasoning is very logical and compelling. So I was curious if any one agrees and how you adjust your spraying for things like Splash Plaints, True Color etc... which specify air brush needle sizes and PSI.
  12. Thanks Geoff, I did see those but have grown particular about my glues. I've found that both Zap and BSI are head and shoulders above the rest in terms of CA. However I'm wondering if a very small amount of print toner would do since I'm desiring a minor tint.
  13. Hi, I've a wonderful bottle of thin CA (Zap) that I'd love to have some sort of tint for application control. What I've read about tinting/coloring CA is that it either causes them to get thick, stringy, weak etc... Would any one happen to know how to do a slight tint so that I can more easily see it? Any color would do. * And Happy Fathers Day!
