Hi Tim,
For this Porsche build COVID build #4 Porsche 911 | Album by Mahoo76 (1:24) I’m planning on using Tamiya paint TS-88 Titanium Silver, Tamiya Gloss, Lacquer, 100ml
What kind of primer can I use best to get the best result?
Alclad gloss black, alclad matt black with microfiller, vallejo acrylic black, mr surfacer, tamiya extra fine white/grey?
HELP!!
13. November 2020, 12:47
Tim Heimer
I've always had luck with the Tamaya fine or extra fine primer when using Tamaya paint and lacquer. After using the clear lacquer I then Use the Novus #2 & #1 polish. although if the paint came out rough I may give it another coat of clear and use 8000 grit 1st. I actually mix a 70/30 of 2 & 1and use an old cotton sock or a piece of flannel from an old lounge pants or an old sweatshirt to finish it off. again depending on how it comes out I may also hit it again with the #1 for the high polished look. Also: save the chrome trim for last, unless you clear coat yours. I hope this helps! This is the stuff, I just grabbed this site, I get mine at my local shop. https://banksupplies.com/731..445&utm_content=Cleaning
13. November 2020, 15:33
Martin Oostrom
Okay, Tamiya ef White primer it is then.
I have sanding cloths up to 12000 and the Tamiya polish medium/fine/shine. Old cotton socks and a real microfibre polishing cloth are available as well. So I'm good to go in that department.
Thanks Tim, you're a gem
13. November 2020, 18:09
Tim Heimer
Glad to help. Sounds like you're good to go!
13. November 2020, 21:07
Martin Oostrom
All I need now is for the COVID to go away and get back to my spray booth :D
13. November 2020, 21:18
Martin Oostrom
Follow up question. The bare plastic, polished as smooth as a newborn baby, or scuffed with xxx grit, so the primer has something to bite into?
15. November 2020, 09:05
Tim Heimer
Due to fine molding lines that I would assume were good, I usually do a 2000 wet sand before priming plus it helps the primer bite. Then wet sand again with 3-4000 depending how primer came out. Polishing is meant for paint or clear coat only. Hope this helps.
17. November 2020, 05:57
Martin Oostrom
of course this helps. I will try the Gearhead method on the next car paint job.
Thanks!

Thanks guys! I know not everyone is into zombies and paranormal stuff. I wanted to use something other than zombies for this but the cost for just 2 of the other figures I wanted to use would've been $115 usd shipping was most of the cost! That and I know that this wasn't really a car movie, but still a well known newer TV series.

That's impressive Tim... I especially like the the working headlights. A very cool detail that shows off the awesomeness of the front end of the 67 Impala

BTW, someone needed to do this... ;)

I was just thinking "how did I miss this one?" then I actually took the time to read the comments (rare) & I see your point Tim ;)
I've never heard of the tv series, could be a transatlantic thing I guess?
It's reminded me of some of the less well known but still very cool tv/movie cars, the black Cuda from Phantasm, the E-Type hearse from Harold & Maude, the white Vette from The Magician etc

$45 is not a bad price for the scarcity of this scanner, but $14 shipping is double what it will actually cost to mail it and the final price will probably be higher than the starting price. I've already got 5 red scanners, 1 orange scanner and 1 yellow scanner, so I won't be bidding. A while back you were asking about acquiring one of these Aoshima scanners so I posted the link.
26. October 2020, 14:29

For what it's worth, Other than the size of the Evil mad Scientist kit it works just as good, and a lot cheaper.

thanks Starbase101, I really appreciate that you passed the information. but the price is too high, unfortunatelly. i wonder why Aoshima does not produce those anymore, specially since they keep salling Knight Rider kits.

Just a thought Tim........ can you paint the stripe on?
As memory serves it's a fairly simple gloss black stripe sitting directly on the upper edge of the belt line, ncreasing by just a few degrees to the rear.
1. November 2020, 10:49
Tim Heimer
Nigel, you have an interesting thought for the reason in which now I will have to investigate! I know the vertical part was slightly raised that I flattened on all 3 cars, the side I left alone for some odd reason. Munky it wouldn't matter if it was painted on or not, the distance from the top of the fender to the wheel well is too thin. If you look at the pic above you can see the stripe above the well, the problem I have is the stripe goes through the wheel well. It's like 6-8mm too high for the stripe to be straight.

I swear the Army doctor that did my knee was last in his class, still hurts like hell to this day ! But keep the faith and keep on modeling on my friend !

I thank you guys for your support! Bob, I'm ALMOST in the same shape as you are, My whole neck is fused with rods, lower back has 3 vertebrae fused, both shoulders and both knees have been operated on, and I
was only a forklift mechanic! Sorry to say but at least I had good surgeons. I have a good idea of the pain you feel and am sorry to hear you have to deal with that! It seems modeling is good therapy for many here.

I've not searched yet while I'm in holidays and I've only my mobile. I don't know the kit you use Tim, so why I asked ;)
Thanks for explaining munky. Some movie cars are definitely hard to replicate in scale.
31. July 2020, 07:47
Nigel Chapman
I would not have the patience to replicate a movie vehicle like that, hence I tend to build my own 'plausible' creations. I take my hat off to you Tim for your dedication.
31. July 2020, 13:44
Tim Heimer
Thank you Bob for these great video's! This is the stuff you find while building a kit, but then you have to decide weather you're doing the stunt vehicle or the shows car. The days of thunder, Dirty Mary and Dukes car & Zombieland were the stunt cars I've done, Cobra, S&H, Lucifer and now Elaenor & Fall guy get the show car aspect due to the complexity, Fall guy stunt truck has the engine in the cab for better weight distribution for jumping, Hollywood does make it challenging, in the movie Christine the used Belvederes and Furys for the film, so you do the best you can. Like I just confirmed my suspicion on the mustangs hood, it is recessed in the middle, I wasn't sure if it was just the black paint but it's not. Nicel your own creations end up just as good as these movie cars.

Found out a car guy built the 1st car and then Hollywood made 4 more but slightly different, 3 were totaled, 1 stunt car was able to be rebuilt plus the original still exist. Soooo, when I get done it will be the best I can do. There are dozens of slight differences.

Guys, let me know or let Tim know what you think of this. Thought...after making several parts for several of my models I was thinking ( I wonder if anyone else would like to have them?). Then I wondered if others had thought of that too? So my thought is...Having a custom parts/craft category for parts we make and could offer to sell/trade here instead of like Ebay. Put a disclaimer in for SCM to cover your butt and let us work it out. Have categories like scale size, car/truck, military, aircraft, ships, ect. Maybe have a thumbs up or down for possible issues with the transaction. I had seen one site for RC boats that has this and used it to get a custom prop made. Again just a thought.

I figure you'll take care of Eleanor, although I'm not sure it's the same car as in the original movie. We might have to wait a while until they release Mad Max again ( as far as I know). Hooper car might be a trick putting a rocket in it as well as the car body was altered for the jump car in the movie. There are still a lot of movie cars out there to do! A-team, Rockford files, plenty used in Cannonball run, He's one for you, TJ hooker, Blues brothers, I was even checking out the car used in the ending scene of The warriors.

For what it's worth. A few days ago I messed up my knee, which makes it hard to get around. So I figured that if I started a new kit I could sit and not move very much so I opened the MPC 1/25 Knight rider kit. First thing I notice is that about half the parts were wrapped in flashing and a few of the parts I didn't see at 1st. Then I noticed that out of the 4 wheels/rims one was missing and another one looked like it was melted. As I pushed on I found other pieces that were melted into the flashing, the rear spoiler warped and just very poor quality, not to mention lacking in detail. Needless say I'm not impressed with MPC= Melted Pieces of Crap. Buyers beware! Stay safe everyone.

Nigel that's what I'm thinking. Just have to figure out how to work the standing figure of him into it as well as how to do the stunt scene. Go figure!, the only maker a truck close enough to clone is MPC! And I still have to buy a couple of things to do it, for one the bed is too short!LOL

Nigel, I had been bringing in my work for a few years. It started with the Jolly Rogers kits, AKA (The pirates of the Caribbean) when they 1st came out, he liked my work on them, then I brought in the 1/16th Dukes of Hazzard Charger and he loved that, and it spent about 6months there. One day last year I walked in and he said he had a project for me and brought out the Nomad kit and told me what he wanted done. So I accepted the challenge and worked with him asking what he envisioned and between the two of us what you see here is the outcome, so the car is his and I have a good friend that is quite helpful.

Apparently this inspired him to have a model contest for a TV or movie model contest, but because of all the crap happening it may not happen, other than that no. Bob Imho it isn't much a plug due to no one is really in my area.

Kit has no door handles, which I'm making, same with side mirrors and scoop. already modified engine as best as possible from a distant pic. Going to have to go with 49 dash, 50 is different. no good pics of scoop and how it fades or not at the rear. Stallone is done. still need a back drop of a grocery store.

I'm building some custom slot cars.
I received the most important parts the other day.
The number plates.
Modifying kits would be easier because the worst part is pulling them apart without breaking anything to start modifying.
Movie cars are difficult because firstly you have to search for reference pictures and watch the movie heaps.
I'm doing a car from the 1982 Australian film "Running on Empty" and a car I actually owned at the same time

I never knew a Pacer could draw such attention! LOL. Hoping to post more pics tonight. Wilky, movie cars are a real challenge because they use so many and each one differs slightly from the next! Dukes of Hazzard used 378 cars, the movie Christine used I believe 16. Right now I'm also working on the Mello yello car from Days of thunder, I've counted 6 so far for the movie, plus the one to promote the movie! Best of luck with that.

So continuing on with this Hollywood stuff I'm doing I got this kit. The decals they supply with it are a joke! The kit itself- not too bad. Now, how you paint it is another issue! The show car for the movie has green interior, a redish / cranberry color drivers net and silver wheel rims. The movie has the light gray interior, black drivers net in most of the shots, and black rims in most of the shots as well as minor other details! I've already completed the Dio for it and I'm half way through the build adding the driver as well. will post pics soon as it will be on hold for 2weeks until the decals arrive from over the pond.

It's a Revell kit I got from my local hobby shop. If you click on the picture of the model kit in the lower left corner of my album it will send you to a page with the kit # and all the details including who's selling it, with the exception of like Ebay, Amazon, Ect. Hope this helps. I bought the cow catcher off Ebay but it was way to big for this. So big I was able to make 2 of them out of the one. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help. Tim

Anyone ever have to remove Future off a window and redo it after it dried? while applying my dogs got out and after collecting them I forgot what I was doing prior and by the time I remembered it had mostly dried.
6. March 2020, 03:10
Greg Baker
Not sure I quite understand the problem, but Windex will take off any unneeded Future (as well as paint probably, so be careful). I believe Future itself will also disolve (and incorporate) layers of Future that have already been applied - so you might just be able to pick up where you left off. Usually that makes it hard to build up a thickness of future (i.e. for using it as a filler for small windows). Regardless though, the key is keeping it clean of dust (and fingerprints). So, you might want to buff it a bit with a micro-fibre cloth before reapplying...

Goo Gone is the Miracle cure all in my arsenal of remedies !
6. March 2020, 04:34

It's the amonia in Windex that will take off Future. My experience is that acrylic thinner (despite Future being an acrylic) usually doesn't do much.
6. March 2020, 04:35
Treehugger
I am not an expert on this subject but I thought that adding another layer on top of the old one would disturb the layer underneath.

"Movin on" to an update. Fyi- the truck shown on the AMT box is almost correct for the 1973 tv show pilot ( In tandem ) ! In the 74 - 76 tv series the truck was a new 74 Kenworth with the larger sleeper and other changes for that year. Just recently someone found 1 of the 4 used for tv and restored it. Now if anyone has any info to confirm which 1 of the 3 rumored colors it was, please let me know. TY

This is a nice truck to build Tim. Although mine had a lot of flash and the seam line on the roof was a challenge for me for I had to make new rivets because of the sanding (and had no experience in that) I had fun. Hope to see the result some time.

Thanks Mark, I did this one as a kid as well as other AMT trucks so I will revisit a few of them in the next year or two. I still like the AMT trucks better than the Revell ones! I will take a peak at yours for sure.
