Re: TESTORS Dull Coat

I know this is of no use to you but it is sold in New Zealand as both a lacquer and an acrylic so it is still made.

Re: Macton II

Wow this is a thread from the past. Since you last posted I have moved to Canada, tasted two ccccold winters and returned to warm New Zealand. I can't wait to see how your build progresses.

Darn it is disappointing to read that the Gnatterbox is so popular in the spammers world that is preventing real modellers from joining.

Re: Self isolation virtual exhibition.

Re: HOn2 a mini...

Dettol contains isopropol alcohol and another chemical which seems to dissolve even acrylic paint. Dettol is also good hand sanitizer ... And if you're modelling k...

I just gave up waiting and cancelled my order with Book Depository as they still claim they can't get copies from their suppliers. Where should I try and order from?

Re: (F) Scale Inflation Downunder - Dabble in 1:12th

Well I started this thread back in 2009 but it all got stuck in a box and forgotten. Recently I picked up another of the Tamiya 1/12th figures at a not to be passed up price so I've been searching for the original items with just one box found so far. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48965576711_...
