    To everyone who has/is supporting this build, please accept my thanks and very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Sam, your skill and dedication to this build are a shining example of a true modeller and friend, and your progress is a fitting tribute to Paul's memory. Mr C, you have overseen this project with great support and diplomacy whenever called upon, and I only wish I had been able to do more to help you both. Much respect to you all. Ron

    The loss of a Comrade

    We three are very touched at your words of support gentlemen. We are sure it will warm Zoe's heart to know how the members felt about Paul. It would be a great bonus to have the input of the members when Sam re-opens the build thread for the 'Eagle'. Thank you all, Respect Chas, Sam Ron
  8. Glad it was of use to you Olivier Regards Ron
  9. Also found this....some interesting snippets of info... http://www.mustangandfords.com/featured-vehicles/mump-0901-1964-indy-pace-car-hardtop/
  10. Try this Oliver..... https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1902&bih=926&ei=K911W7awE8T7kwWc1IvABA&q=64+mustang+indy+pace+car&oq=64+mustang+indy+pace+car&gs_l=img.3...2879.13670.0.14255. Regards Ron
  11. A tip for the future Olivier....if you need to paint on a chromed or painted surface....and your wheels fit that scenario exactly....matt varnish them first....which provides a 'tooth' for the other paint to grab onto...and means the coverage is improved. Paint the details (stripes in this case)...then re-seal the piece with satin or gloss varnish. This also allows you to better control the 'shine' on the piece...which adds to the final realism. Regards Ron
  12. If it helps....I have only experienced problems in getting a smooth overall coat of Molotow when using black base coats....so...as such I do not use a black base. One tip I can offer...I have used different acrylic metals as a base coat....sealing them before applying the Molotow.....and the results are very subtle changes in the tone of the Molotow. Regards Ron
  13. To be fair to yourself Olivier....and to the Molotow.....Tamiya masking tape is one of the most harmful of tapes where paint is concerned! I would recommend you use a decorators low tack tape...this is designed to be used on wallpaper without incurring damage to the delicate surface. The only time I use the Tamiya tape these days...is if I want to replicate damaged paint surfaces....such as peeling and wear....and use it by applying it for 48 hours after the paint has dried....then when you lift it you get random lifting of the paint...which nicely replicates such effects. One other point of note with the Tamiya....is that it varies enormously in tack between different rolls! This means that you run the 'risk' of success this time....but...when it really matters....disaster! Regards Ron
  14. The Amazon stuff looks pretty good A tip for you when dealing with felt for models....it tends to be 'fluffy'....which defeats the object...as car carpets are made to be hard wearing....which means they have a course/tight pile. To achieve this look....spray it lightly...a couple of mist coats are best....using the cheapest 'hairspray' (firm hold is best) you can find You can do this prior to fitting or once it is installed. Ron
  15. My best advice would be to e-mail the makers direct Olivier, regards details such as thinners and airbrushing, as I have only ever needed to use the pens direct to the surface. Regards Ron
