I'm needing some stickers that look like carbon fibre. Is there any kits you guys may know of that has CF in them. I only need a very small piece may 4x1''. Just enough to cover the wing on my GT2. That will be the last thing needed.

Any help will be much appreciated.

:?: :?:

hrmm that model carbon fiber is interesting stuff. I got a sheet of it (sticker) from a ricer shop, but it'd look wayyy too big to be of any use on models, and it wasn't very pliable

The Scalemotorsport material is a decal, not a sticker, and therefore very pliable by nature. Used in conjunction with decal setting solution and decal solvent (for complex surfaces) you can get it to look very realistic. It comes in different scales, so you have to make sure you get 1/18. I've used it on 1/24 models and it looks VERY convincing.

I got the decal for my Project Mini but for the life of me I can't seem to find the Setting solution or solvent at the hobby store...guess it's time to break down and ask where it is so I can get it done.

Setting solution for general use...solvent for complex surfaces...

MicroScale decal setting solution and solvent...

Testors Model Master decal setting solution and solvent...

Also, do a Google search for decal solvents for online hobby shops if you don't want to order from the manufacturer...

One thing with decal solvent...while it works it appears to be totally screwing up the decal, making it all wrinkly looking. Don't mess with it. When everything dries after 24 hours, it will look much better. I'd also recommend searching the web for detailed info on using decal solvents. Some of the better plastic model web sites will have info on this. Good luck!

I will never understand how some people, envious of what others may have, will ruin something just because they can't have it. I guess it's the mentality "If I can't have it, then you can't either". In the same discussion, why do people key other people's cars?

Sorry 'bout your hood. Hopefully, what goes around comes around and the perpetrator will get his/her just reward.

IR,

Sorry to hear about the clown who scratched the hood. Chances are it was the loser who staged against you :2gun: :2gun:
