  1. Hello all, I started building this following getting it as a Christmas present about three years ago!!! I had built the engine and chasis was started when we had a house fire and I lost the remaining kit parts including bodywork. The engine was built using many Top Studio and other various scale parts (wiring, AN fittings, electrical connectors etc.} Whilst not as thorough as the SMS upgrade kit was am very pleased with my efforts. I purchased an additional kit from ebay to enable me to continue and complete the kit (I was too far emotionally invested by now!!) In my eagerness I failed to notice it was not the 2007 recent reissue but an original release. This lead to the worse decals I've encountered. They were dried and cracked immediately into several parts upon contact with water. II persevered but was so disappointed with the results. I considered learning to airbrush and mask them, purchase a further kit but settled upon a set from Best Balskits, which upon arrival were incredible. This meant stripping the old decals and starting again, which is point I'm at now. Photos to follow once I've worked it out!! https://photos.app.goo.gl/P1Gi2eXRuN4Pjr238 This is my first kit build in possible twenty years, I've included some work in progress pics but please be gentle with me!! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it. I shall update as regularly as I can, currently looking at getting working head/tail lights fitted, but yet to make final decision on that.
  2. I've been given a load of Tamiya paints, obviously quite old as a few show Richard Kohnstam Ltd as the supplier... Some of them are coded PC "for polycarbonate". Tamiya's website says that these paints should never be used on plastic, that they are designed only for use on the inside of polycarbonate body shells. Does anyone know for sure if this is really the case and what happens if sprayed on normal plastic? Is there some sort of reaction. If they are useless on polystyrene then I'll move them on to whoever wants them.
