Hi guys, not much to say had one of "those day" :oops: I have been getting on with the "prep" washing/cleaning of the sprues and let them air dry.
But out of interest (if you are interested :lol: ) I have counted the clear plastic parts and there are 36 of them :o these are to be my nemeses I'm sure :angry-banghead: but onward and downwards :laughing-rolling:
more tomorrow I hope.

Hi guys, been quite a while since my last post :oops: I'm sorry for the "focus" issue here and I hope that it will improve shortly.

All 33 pieces of it :doh: tell me do you guys paint on the sprue or off :?: any "tips" about painting the "white wall" tyres.
All comments and advice welcomed.

It depends on the sprue attachment points. If the gate is on an area that will be glued, then I paint on the sprue. If the gate (attachment point) needs to be cut and sanded, then I remove it to paint it.

Good luck with the masking!
Cheers

Hi guys, It's time for another thrilling instalment of my "T1 bus BOTY" :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

As you can see it's the decal set with different options either USA or EUROPEAN versions, I'm not sure which I will use :think: "back in the day" these were called "water slide transfers" but It's not the only thing I need to decide because there are other changes that depend on which option I choose :think:
I have got the Microscale Micro Sol setting solution and stuff so we'll see how much of a "pigs ear" I can make of It :lol:
Thanks for having a look and all comments and advice welcome.
