HELP! Project Sourcing!
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, April 13, 2003 12:27 AM
Hello! I am a scale modeler from the Philippines. I have a project that I cannot start because of lack of materials and kits here. My project is to make a Honda Civic SIR or VTi 4 door sedan (1999 or higher) for Super Saloon Circuit Racing Car of Red Bull Racing Team in the Philippines.

I am having trouble sourcing for a 1/24 scale kit for the car (The closest I have found is a Hasegawa 1/24 scale Civic SIR Hatchback (Old Model, around a 1993 model)

Also, I am contemplating on what kind of method to do the paint job of the red bull logos and other sponsor's logo. I am currently looking at using the decals printed on ink jets (such as supercal), but this will be the first time i will be using such an item. Can anyone give advise?

Please help on where I can source these items on the web, so I can have them shipped to the Philippines. Also if anyone has any other tips to do such a project, please feel free to frop some lines. Thanks in advance!!!

If anyone is interested in seeing the pics of the actual photos of the race car I took, please give me an email at bryan@yebaa.com, Ill send the pics to you.

THANKS!

Have you tried looking at Hobby Link Japan?? http://www.hlj.com/

I have had good success with home made decals... BUT it works far better if you put them on a light colored background. When I make a decal sheet, I also print the decals on ordinary paper to use as a pattern for a painting mask. Then I can air-brush a light colored background the shape of the decal, to put the decal on.
