  1. PS6 is a very bright yellow, shadewise it matches a lot of 'yellow' parts (wheels are moulded in yellow, not painted) Camel yellow (used on the lexan top shell below) is darker - a bit more like Colmans mustard The lower part is bright yellow moulded plastic, but close to PS6 shade I'm colourblind too, but used to use PS6 a lot as it was closest to most 'yellow' things, especially Tamiya parts like wheels on Lunchbox etc.
  2. Have a read thru these - the body is polythene or polyethylene (if there's a difference) so paints don't stick too well as they don't etch the surface. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/100168-holiday-buggy-paint/&tab=comments#comment-888842 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/94667-holiday-buggy-repaint/&tab=comments#comment-806896 As for the roof, the actual outer roof is a ABS/hard plastic top panel so will take paint differently to the bodyshell (you need TS spray paint or model paints for the roof, driver and detail parts)
  3. The Builds forum, Scam Sellers and TC 'News' all used to have approval for new topics just to keep them relevant and accurate. (I don't remember any forums having locks for posts, only new topics.) If that's the case, then it's as long as it takes for a moderator to see the topic needs approving - they should receive a notification that a topic needs attention, but not sure if that's done via email or on-screen popup when they login to TC. It used to be via email, but may have changed.
  4. It's ok with black, it's getting the masking symmetrical that always tests my patience
  5. This took a fair while to mask up This one was a pig as the paint was semi-transparent so there's around 300 coats On this one, the second coat started to affect the first coat (rattle cans initially), so ended up rubbing a lot of it down and top-coating it with Tamiya acrylics through an airbrush

  10. @Gazzalene - if you haven't sold for a while the other thing to be aware of is that you no longer get funds immediately - eBay now handle the cash and pay out after a couple of days, even if the buyer uses Paypal to pay you. If the auction ends (or the buyer pays) on a Friday night, you might not see the money in your bank until Tuesday! I don't sell a lot on eBay any more and, on my last sale (£45 Rough Rider body), eBay held on to the funds for a week in case the buyer had any issues - Had the buyer left feedback earlier, then funds would have been released then. eBay UK do often have listing fee offers though, I just got offered something like 80% discount on fees this weekend, so it might be worth holding out until the next offer
  11. Built for Kidd 2004 - Couldn't paint hard bodies for toffee 21t motor and bearings, Wide Willy conversion as per; https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/58242wild/wild8/wild8.htm Body was HPI
  12. Pre-ordered Ltd Ed seems to be the way to go - Hasbro are doing it with a lot of their Star Wars products now - Mandalorian Razor Crest pre-order/kickstarter type setup $350, now on eBay for $1000+ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255386083426?hash=item3b76326062:g:zPgAAOSws4RiCkjv These were pretty much made to order through Hasbro Pulse https://hasbropulse.com/collections/haslab There's a huge Rancor in the works and no doubt the new Obi Wan show will generate a few more toys If Tamiya were really on the ball, they'd pre-release limited models, and make to order - The Hasbro Razor Crest was offered months ago to everyone who signed up for the Hasbro newsletter and was only sold to those people, so far... Knocking out a few Special Editions with limited decal sheets or prepainted limited painted bodies would be easy enough, they only gotta add a few dollars to cover low-volume runs and they got it made
