I believe it! There are some great kits in there, too many to mention but I do like some of those Nissan/Datsun trucks.

Cheese Grommit,actually it is between 12 and 16th scale and I am sure that a hemi will fit!


The Mehari is nice,based on a 2cv chassis.While the TR2 has a p.e. chassis and white metal parts too!


A 16th grand prix..


The Scooby is molded in a nice blue.


More Thunderbirds!




This is rather tasty..


A 67 and a 69.


A cunning plan is in store for this!


Some paints including chrome and candies...

It does Ash, it will also remove Zero paints. I found that out the hard way.

While doing the Merc I wanted to wipe it down as I went to another colour. It was pulling up paint onto the towel.

I doubt it would remove it once it has had an extended time to cure. I had let the paint sit for a few days and it was still coming off.

It also works great as a thinner for Tamiya paint, I've been using it for since '93. Although I have found that the lower percentage Iso does dull the paint finish.

I picked up a gallon myself today, bloody expensive, $35/per gallon.

I know ridiculously expensive.
For nail polish you need to use lacquer thinner or acetone.
