  1. Looking at it To fix would not be too hard. the front wing peices are all easy fix, the floor pan/diffuser a little harder but all could be done with the correct thickness plasticard. It was the first year of new regs in 09 so all bits are very basic shapes compared with the following year. The steering wheel again not to hard it would just be a time consuming job to get right. All the decals are again very easily printable to replace on damaged parts. Shaun
  2. Séan it was for a race car but with all the info I got from here and a little more digging using different search words I have finally managed to get the job done. Just need someone who can print them now. Shaun
  3. Can anyone point me to a person who can print decals with white ink? I've tried emailing parkes on here but have got no reply as of yet so if anyone knows of anybody else who can print good quality decals that would be great. Shaun
  4. Thanks séan. I know of white decal paper in looking more into making a sheet to send to an actual person to print with the white with no outline. Shaun
  5. Hi guys I call on the wisdom of the group. I need a quick/ over simplified explanation of how to use one or all of the tagged applications above on how to make white decals with no background so i can send the file straight to a print maker. I have only recently started using these apps so am very overwhelmed in the functions (many swear words have come out). All i want to make is around 10 decals that are word logos for a certain car but all have to be white and I can't seem to 1) find away to import the logos I want to use and 2) find away to change the back ground colour to not
  6. Hi Paul, I have a friend over on another forum who is wanting decals to be printed. He would normally do them himself but this set has white decals to be printed. If possible for you to help him do you have an email address I can give him so he can contact you directly. Thanks Shaun
  7. It's not bad but like you say not as good of a shine as 2k but with a little work can be made to shine quite well. Over a full body it works well as i used it on a tamiya mp4/4 McLaren a few years back and that's held the shine really well compared to how I thought it would. Shaun
  8. Another of the builds ive been working on recently. Fujimis McLaren MP4-12C GT3. Overall its a pretty nice kit, lots of scope to improve as youll see with some of the things in doing to my build. So the obligatory box picture. All packaged in with plenty of room to spare. The standard kit livery is nice but there are plenty of options for this kit to make loads of different cars. Ive gone for these, a 2012? Seb loeb car. How it should look once done. There are issues with the instuctions that i have notice
  9. So on to part 2 of the build bringing it up to date. So the nosecone needed a small strip of plastic card added at the top to replace the material lost when cutting it off the main body part. As seen here there would have been a .5 mm too much gap so this small plastic was very much needed. Staying at the front and these little wing flow conditioners are a slight pain. As you can see there will be a rather visible white section one added if i followed the instuctions. So i cut the little tab off th
  10. Thanks for the comment monsjmse. This one will be a seb vettel car with only a few changes compared to an out the box build. I have one more that will have as much as i can possibly change done to it once maybe some more options come out from tabu decals and studio 27. Shaun
  11. Been a while since i last properly posted on here so i though this would be a good way to come back to the forum. So this will be my build thread for tamiyas newest kit, from what ive seen so far its a nice kit with some parts i dont like but others i do. So i am going to be honest i am quite a bit into the build so i will break up the thread into a couple of comments. To properly start lets get the obligatory box picture out of the way. Basic tamiya offering from previous kits with a picture of the subject and sprues at the bottom. T
  12. Finally!!! I got my hands on a protar lancia lc2 with a little help with a freind of mine. Shaun
  13. Fantastic work. That shine on the black, as many here know, is incredibly hard to get as good as that. Shaun
  14. Just picked this up from hlj for just over £20. Ver.2 of the LB GT-R Shaun
  15. Personally i never spray anything on the spurs no matter now little. Great kit aswell by the way, always loved these old escort wrc kits As for attaching parts before it's entirely up to you. Small bits sometimes attached before paint pose the risk of being knocked off later on in the build but things like bonnet vents and wings are again up to how confident you are in your own abilities and if on the rear car the joins between these parts are flush or there is a visible line. And any mark that has been put on the body in pencil needs to be removed before
