  1. The video needs some clarification. There is no need for any additional adhesive with Quinta Studios products when applied to a flat surface. The instructions are misleading - you only need additional adhesive when gluing together their multi-part details which come on the sheet. You will also need something like CA to get their seatbelts to behave. I used a combination of Red Fox and Quinta on my FW build. Red Fox needs adhesive while Quinta are waterslide decals with an adhesive/release agent.
  2. Game changer. Extreme high resolution and dead nuts registration. If Qunita or Red Fox doesn't make a set for what I want to build, I ain't building it. My only nit-pick is the clear "lenses" are not flat, but bulbous.
  3. Normally I wouldn't nit-pick like this, but since you're doing everything you possibly can to get this as accurate as possible I gotta' tell you that the Hamilton Standard logos are supposed to be at the lengthwise midpoint of the prop blade. PM me with your address and I'll send you some from my private stash.
  4. If you go this route, here's the tutorial: https://www.scalemodelpaintmasks.com/index.php?/topic/611-how-to-make-decals-with-masks/
  5. That's why I've never considered using their paint with all their XF-this and XF-that stuff. Just put the name of the color on the bottle and stop trying to be cute. If you want lacquer thinner with retarder, get the Mr. Color Leveling thinner.
  6. Excellent, thank you. Only 500 and 1,000 pounders? Seems odd.
  7. Probably because there are scant few photos showing them. I finally just gave up looking and guessed on my SBD build.
  8. Acrylic is a much better choice for shaping, sanding and polishing.
  9. Doing it right. The finished paint job is only as good as the work under it.
  10. Ohhhh..... paint, my favorite part! She's really lookin' good Brian.
  11. And therein lies the rub. Mastering whatever CAD software you decide on is going to be your biggest challenge. Good luck. Once you get the hang of it, it's tremendously rewarding
  12. You must have a pretty big car - that's a LOT of 32!
