Re: Looking for 1:20 fuel inlet

Re: Looking for 1:20 fuel inlet

Re: Recommended heat gun/hair dryer for decals?

I don't use a blow dryer at all. It may blow the decals away as you describe and it tends to evaporate the softener before it can work on the decal.

Re: 1/12 Lotus 99t NUNU

Those marks in the red circles are very likely in the tool, so any replacement part will be the same. If they didn't fix it before production they won't do it later. Money and timing issues it seems and someone decided to "live with it". Nobody said you're not allowed to complain about mis...

Re: Look for Meng McLaren MP4/4 in the wild

I'd agree that an etched endplate will be too thin. I don't have the kit though so I can't comment on the thickness of the kit parts. You can always sand the kit parts thinner ( which may be a tedious job ) or in this case with the completely flat endplate ( + guerney flap at the trailing edge ) you...
