MFH Ducati 750 Imola racer

Nice to see a motoGP forum on the site. I just finished this, my first MFH motorcycle kit. I'm happy with the final result, it's a challenging kit.

Well Done! I can sympathize with you on the poor vision, mine is just due to age but it's a bother all the same. Keep building!

Re: Help with MFH vac form parts

I haven't tried it but perhaps try some plastic polish like Novus 1? I use it on my motorcycle windscreens , it might work.

Re: Maserati 250F, Revival, 1/20

Looks good! I have one Revival metal Kit, The D50, That I haven't touched. Revival does make plastic versions of their kits as well If you want more cars from that era. I'm not sure of quality but you don't get the nice wire wheels.

Very nice! I have this kit in the stash and I'm a little terrified of the decals, thanks for the tip.

Re: A good white primer for zero paints

I now typically use Mr. Surfacer primer on my builds. Never had a problem of any kind with it even under Zero paints. It's what I used on my current DBR1 build. I spray it directly from the can, it goes on smooth and wet sands well.
