Hi All,
As far as the paint question goes it's pretty much a personal choice and local availability I happen to work at a hobby shop in New Jersey and we only stock Tamiya Acrylics and the Testors brand (i.e. model master). I personally use tamiya paints because they airbrush really good, but I don't build alot of plastic models. Revell paints are actually made for revell by a third party and are kinda hard to come by, but that said revell-monogram was recently sold so who knows. People don't seem to want to build anything anymore, at least where I work, even our most popular RC Cars come prebuilt (traxxas, hpi)! I will try to up some pics of some interesting things just gotta go find a nice image hosting site that my peer guardian will let me go to

hehe, when you say kit car it sounds like you're more interested in a 1:1 scale model.

check out some of these links for other Lotus Knock offs. I think many of them use V6's (such as the GM 3.6 or 3.8 litre among others.)


As far as model cars go, I never noticed a large difference in price. Usually supplies are what make the difference. What scale are you looking at?
