  1. You should give the Dupli-Color sandable primers a try. Their nozzle lays it out smooth and thin. Do not go to a regular parts store to look for it. Try a auto parts store that has a paint center in it. I called around today and found that the one store that is closed the one with the paint center shows they have three cans of the black in stock. I will find out tomorrow!
  2. I always prime my kits when using lacquer paints even the acrylic lacquers. At one time I did nit prime using enamels. I stopped doing that a long time a go. My issue is I prefer the Dupli-Color spray primers but most of the auto parts stores here only carry the Rustocrap primers. That stuff sucks and is too thick no matter how light I try to spray it. I looked at getting the MRP surface primer but that stuff costs more than the paint does. I would have to buy a bunch of that compared to the stuff I am using now. The Tamiya primers are good but I can get more for less out of the Dupli Color.
  3. I started a Kitty Hawk UH-1Y Venom helicopter and just sprayed my first MRP for the interior. I have to say this stuff is nice! It took several light coats to get it to cover the primer good. My question is this. Is the MRP primer worth the extra money or keep using the Dupli Color spray primer that I am using?
  4. I have been using a degreaser called Purple Power to strip paint off model cars for years now. So far I have not found a paint it can’t handle. The longer the model is in the pond the easier the paint comes off. Looks like when I get off work at 0500 Im heading to WallyWorld for some mean Green to test.
  5. Just ran a track on my package. It left San Juan Pr Thursday at 5:59PM. Has not been scanned anywhere since and the delivery date is unknown. Just says that it is on time. If it was on time I would already have it. The USPS needs to be closed down as far as I am concerned. All they do is raise rates to pay the top people. Just totally ridiculous.
  6. The only issues with UPS I have had is due to weather delays. FedEx I have had several packages severely damaged. This make the 3rd USPS miss direction in past two months.
  7. Placed an order early this week from SB. Expected delivery date of today. Last scan shows it leaving Puerto Rico yesterday afternoon. Since when does Puerto Rico end up between Kansas City, Mo. and South Texas?
  8. Steve Your doing an outstanding job. I thank you for all your hard work keeping the site going so us plastic junkies have a place to gather and exchange our work. Thanks again!

  11. By any chance does anyone have the Cam Decals # 48-108 Deadly Corsairs? Only need the VF-23 part of the set.
