Not really the right scale but whatever

Please excuse my stupid iPhone camera

I got some of that DINOC from a local vinyl shop as a sample... that stuff looks like real dry carbon... it's great... i did the arms on a pair of Oakley Gascan sunglasses and they came out great... I'm trying to get just a little more to do a BT headset... like 2-inch by 1-inch... but I can't find my leftovers... LOL... I tried to order a sample direct from 3M as we own an interior design firm..., but it's been like three weeks since I ordered.. oh well

Looks nice on the F104 though

Anyone have any opinion on pit shimizu tires on carpet, f103? They seem a bit less pricey than RIDE tires, but I have no idea if they are any good.

They are good.

Kind of a toss up between ride and shimizu. Perhaps slight advantage to ride. Shimizu may not last as long, but they mount on Tamiya foam rims that are cheap, tough and easy to find. The tires themselves may not be so easy to find. TQ racing has them on order.

Your mileage will vary.

Thanks! I just ordered a set of ride, but I was curious if the pit shimizu tires were comparable. They are significantly cheaper, and you can use the cheaper f103 foam wheel set, so Ill prob order a set and try them as well.

I! Hello, what shade of color Tamiya spray paint does it take for a body of F 103 in the colors of Renault R30 latest version?

I have big doubts to choose.

At your ideas ....

Been meaning to post some of these for a while, but keep getting tied up
These were some shots I submitted for the Tamiya F1 build contest. None of these won, but my Buzzin Hornets Jordan did
Enjoy
