  1. Thanks everyone. I've been learning a bunch from you guys just reading through posts.
  2. Thank you all for the kind words. I didn't know black was supposed to be a challenge until I finished this one. It all went very smooth with no issue at all. No sanding between coats and just a bit of real car wax after the 2K set for 3 days.
  3. Just finished up my second car model yesterday. I still have plenty to learn but I am loving car models. The airplanes are fun but the cars are just a blast and I'm looking forward to my skills improving and learning to add more detail. This one is OTB using Splash Sublime Green and MRP 2K Gloss clear.
  4. This was built OTB and painted with MRP Super Gloss Black and MRP 2K Clear Gloss. This is my first try at car modeling but I have been building aircraft for a few a couple of years. First time doing a gloss finish and I think it came out pretty decently. Thanks for looking and please feel free to point out anything that would help me improve my work.
  5. Very nice. The color is perfect for this car.
  6. Thanks to the original poster and all who replied. The information is very useful and I'll sure give it a try.
  7. I'm doing a color change on a dicast for a friend who owns a real one which is easy enough. I was able to take it all apart with no problems at all and just need to do some sanding, priming and painting. All I need now is to find some decals for the logos. I've looked at every source I could think of and can't find any. As it stands I'm going to give making my own decals a shot for the first time but I would rather just buy some. Can you guys recommend a source?
  8. I'm new to model cars too and just tried BMF for the first time on a 70 Charger. I didn't use the tape method and it turned out okay but not great. I figured it was good for a first try so I was happy with it. My problem is the knife drifting. I find that the less pressure the better. It doesn't seem to take much pressure to make a clean cut and less chance of drift. I also put the foil right on the Splash paint and clear coated over it thinking it would give me a better edge to guide the blade.
  9. That's a very attractive car. I'll sure pick one up. I even like the color.
  10. Beautiful build in every way. I have this kit too and am looking forward to giving it a go. Do the doors open and close and if so was it difficult to make them work?
  11. Thanks Steve, I followed your advice and it worked great. I'm very happy with the results.
  12. I'm building a Revell 1970 Dodge Charger with molded in floor mats and would like to flock the floor pan. Will the flocking peel up when I remove the tape? How do you guys suggest I do this? Thanks, Al
  13. Once I get it worked out I'll do that. I don't know if it will work out but we will see.
  14. I hope you guys don't mind if I jump in with another interior related question. I come from airplane modeling and used pre-shading on panel lines or low corners in the cockpit and such to enhance the depth. Have you guys ever tried this technique on the seats or other interior parts? I was thinking of shading the folds and highlighting the high points and see how it looks.
