I just got back from the Outter Banks and a set of paint masks for the stand were waiting for me. These were made by Gator's Masks. He made the masks for all the numbers, insignia and now the stand. They are outstanding.





There are more new photos on my album page.

Hey pretty neat. That would make a nice mouse pad for the Computer. Have you read the article in Fine Scale models? Seems the guy built one of these kits and complained about the paint not adhering to the plastic. That might explain why my friend, who is building my model was having trouble with the paint. This guy recommends using a primer first, then paint.........

I've had at least 3 different paint jobs on this model with a lot of masking and never pulled any paint off with the tape. I did wipe it down with thinner before painting to get rid of mold releases, finger prints, etc.

That would make a great POSTER. I think some would like to have that in their room. I think it looks pretty awesome myself.
