I'm one of those guys who always thought that you were buying Rustoleum rattle cans. I never knew that that had bottle paints. Where did you find them?
I can't wait to see you build those vintage classics.
Yes, I know - as I said in the original post, the confusion it's widespread. I can find locally at one of the hardware stores, Kooyman - it is a similar chain to ACE Hardware and alikes you have in US, but this one it is a Dutch brand. However, their merchandize (in Caribbean at least) it's 90% US import.
And the postman came to visit me... there a few things he brought:
A little tractor here:
Again, I am disappointed by Revell marketing. Not only that is listed as a level 4 (with under 100 parts), but glue it is not required (snap-fit). More yet: the demonstrative kits sent to different reviewers had colour instructions and options of decals and stickers, while my kit has black and white instructions manual and no stickers. Now, none of this it's a deal breaker for me and the price was good, but their policy it is still annoying; if I would have bought this kit for a hypothetical son, I'd be very mad just now for the grayscale instructions and lack of stickers. I still feel cheated, although at the end of the day does not really matter.
Another kit I was scouting for a while it's this beautiful '50 Olds. It seems to be a fine Revell-Monogram. I might be wrong because of insufficient evidence, but I think that under California Wheels label one can find the finest Revels on the American market.
Here's a kit that I was avoiding for a while, then adding it back to my shopping cart, and repeat Finally I decided to drop de money:
What kept me away so far was the Lindberg genealogy. After I've seen multiple YT build reviews, I took the risk and I'm glad I did (so far). In the box, the kit looks rather good.
Here's something I cannot explain myself:
I bought a Chevy! I don't know what's wrong with me! I don't know if you have noticed it, but not even AMT didn't spelled Chevrolet on the box, opting for Monte Carlo instead. I understand them! Seriously now, this is supposedly one of the best AMTs on the market, and upon superficial inspection, it look so! Probably I'm going to make a de-badged version, with a swapped Ford engine or som'thing
I decided to give a try to these PE buckles from Gofer Racing. The "belts" don't look too convincing to me, but the buckles are OK.
And some liquors to go with the kits:
Nothing what you don't know about, but please if I might have your attention for this one:
I always said that Testors / Model Masted and Rust-oleum (tins) are the same, but it was an educated guess. Now I have the proof:
Now I have to debunk Krylon too!
Besides all these things I shown here, I bought also some Aqua Gloss (they have replaced the annoying breaking plastic cap with a metallic one), some BMF (chrome and gold) and some laser decal paper to push on with my rally Dacia 1100 and maybe - one future day - with the Scirocco.
