  1. That is quite a transformation!! Great work! Keith
  2. She's a beauty Einar, lovely Pony car...!! Colour looks perfect! Keith
  3. I had a rally prepared Wardance Red Avenger Tiger! Did wonder if they were spots rather than twin headlamps, thought the inner ones looked a bit smaller. But I didn't have my reading specs on to see properly.....!! Keith
  4. Nice looking 'posh' Imp in the background of the 911 - Chamois? Stilletto? DVLA has it down as a Hillman, so maybe not.... I really like the Colt! Keith
  5. Much easier to squirt some superglue on the leaking digit with one hand Tony..... !! (but I am glad it's not just my ham fistedness that causes me such distress when trying to unwrap a plaster!) Vixen continues to impress mightily, it looks fantastic! And Marmalade is brilliant! Keith
  6. Hurricane looking very tasty Chris! I couldn't even contemplate brush painting something the size of a 1/48th Anson in yellow....!! Have you ever considered using something like white Tamiya fine surface white primer in a spray can to give yourself an opaque base for the yellow? I only ask as I always spray a white primer coat before airbrushing anything yellow, and even then it drives me nuts...!! Keith
  7. Had exactly the same thing happen in a gloss coat this morning... Keith
  8. Not always in their standard range, if you ask for a pearl or mica special mix then they usually do. I've found paints just listed as metallic use normal 1:1 size flakes...
  9. Stop putting the standard of your modelling down, as your writing is far, far more than passable, you should do it for a living....!! Keith
  10. Forgot to mention Zero paints are available from some mainland European dealers too, such as Spotmodel in Spain; https://www.spotmodel.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=honda+vivid+blue Keith
  11. The Zero paints are fine to use through an airbrush, including their metallics, which as I mentioned are basically car touch up paint in smaller bottles. I have used non metallic car touch up paint off e-bay, but not metallics I'm afraid so I can't say about the ones I linked to. One thing I should mention about both types of paint is that they are 'hot' laquers, so you need a good primer coat on your model and ONLY spray them in light coats giving them 5-10 minutes between coats otherwise you might run the risk of damaging the plastic. Also they need to be cleaned out of your airbrush with laquer thinner, so it could damage airbrush o-rings that aren't solvent proof such as PTFE ones. Keith
  12. I think if you read the original post it's been intentionally posted here as the aircraft in question was painted in car paint so that's what the poster is asking for info on! Keith
  13. Don't know which I admire most PC, your intro writing or the modelling that follows them. Nope, they're both equally as good! Keith
  14. Hiroboy do list Honda vivid blue in the Civic Type R section; https://www.hiroboy.com/Honda_Civic_Type_R_Paints_60ml--product--10610.html They don't list the gold however. When I'm looking for specific car colours I also search e-bay for full size car touch up paint (which is basically what hiroboy sells) I found this, but not sure if it's exactly what you want; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114794289092?hash=item1aba45d7c4:g:wZoAAOSwYxFgkpSM https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124710615519?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item1d0954f9df:g:fcEAAOSwXq5gkqPz&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACoPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsSxXDXcCydCuSj2Tq2S%2F3Gnv2ezRk1i0Mu334Jcsc%2F9DH5%2B658%2BCVzktdxjx4U9rEG89q3ak4lJOsmgbUG3mCtC8dUizWd9GOVJRNRKzHQrpvKz5xtxwdb3bcUiZoE%2Bbw0RSi68GoQn78nuvN0D8BqmwJq8idhP7GmzW6XNlEp3OU%2Fh2CX4bPS8%2Bk%2FEXfc2W1u8SqcV9TEDC5Dse8E2OkkvnVnMYOU%2B6iRUtcpFEp2x79IWU08fpy7tnfhhB8001szTZW0wWa6rL4REfOyKzxrq0JGHyiKMj7CEjPaFyC21bTPE59ZQof4uQOEfeAnp9Uq99UIY8QhYtAyb63fkJkukiikQyTshcmQNhonsoMqp1irVirvjPxh9c0zWJnitP%2FrWLjjOWpn8Ju6LjpwWKv9OPwPrMCEaTQlggzageVJZtodh4z4tieXDimonlzyP1ygDyJHKxA%2FVJq85fIyL2ea5q38Fa%2FVftxo50w7a5SR5iKrlkusiewzQ1DrMmFbE1sIYonPUVtwCLjgEq%2F4ivrAqV3hAgp9AmoHbGZ%2FiT0D%2F6amBA%2Bs435rHsAR7LCPACZVycCf092%2BGg55MLa8og9h0yK9q3EVf4TSGlNxEawWT4aFH1WZ5ArWSO1Oyhseke5DYtm4UlDEE0NkoW10Cv9CpDgrOvWR80V1JcJ97DqgBQetTfvYbZR0ZyA5tuoT6WXpltvl0tNy7eiRrF%2Bz72fYFCAom0QhO7rHFLeVZEgl4iF6hnmFDFh1szPkxzEPCa7XLLXqeBVKulaVRJ8JhZc%2FPHnIZIU6CCBKPlT%2BXBUVfXuaVjUlr96QB%2Ba8qDPb4AmEhW7pmJAhqUAovq27NO7aQg%3D%3D|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A2334524 Keith
  15. Really enjoyed your build thread Gary - and equally enjoying looking at the finished result, superb model of a cracking looking rally car!! Top job! Keith
  16. The brake fluid I use for stripping painted bodies (quite often!) is DOT4, like this; https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-and-fluids/brake-clutch-fluid/comma-dot-4-brake-fluid-500ml-124440.html?istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istFeedId=367c5610-f937-4c81-8609-f84582324cd6&istItemId=rtartpir&istBid=t&_$ja=tsid:|cid:14297415498|agid:124576971583|tid:pla-328085909409|crid:539302034289|nw:u|rnd:11748972447960574595|dvc:c|adp:|mt:|loc:1007460&gclid=CjwKCAjwp_GJBhBmEiwALWBQk1BBMAw_1-4J_FPDunAssw2WkOSpdsXI02beHAJn8zem4-ij7TuXOBoC8HkQAvD_BwE Keith
  17. I fully agree, I've seen a couple of youtube video builders suggest clear coats will prevent paint bleed through on white decals - I think that's absolute nonsense! Only way I've ever got round this is to mask and spray white areas under the decals (if there's lettering or the like on the white decals which means the areas can't just be sprayed white) or to trace the kit decals and cut out backing sheets from white decal paper. Keith
  18. I'm not 100% sure what you're looking for, but Modelworks say they have this sheet of generic Marlboro logos in stock - it says 1/18 & 1/20 but some may be a suitable size? https://www.modelworks.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=226&search=marlboro However the 307 ran in many events with just white squares in place of the Marlboro logos and they should be easy enough to mask and spray along eith the stripes. Alternatively Spotmodel have a few different aftermarket decal sheets for the 307 in defferent schemes. Keith
