Hi Karl,

I've been following your work for a very long time and am always amazed at your talent. I'm a friend of Giulio :): )

I've always been wanting to ask you, do you build custom kits for customers? I have a mk3 Supra by fujimi and mk4 supra by tamiya and unfortunately I'm not cut out for these kind of things. It would be great if I can have them built up, especially the mk3 since I own one and would love to have a scale model replica of it.

Keep up the great work!

Hello Dalton, first of all many thanks for your kind words, that is very appreciated. I'm glad there's a local fan of my work :) Ohh Mr.Giulio.. amazing guy.. always amazed at his excellent collection :) Thank you Dalton for considering me to build your Supra's. I have never done commissioned work so far. Many people ask me that question but due to my very limited time to build cars, I always refuse such offers. It's not fair leaving a customer waiting for months until I find the necessary time to finish their cars. So for now, I'm sorry but I can't build commissioned cars due to this. If I manage to squeeze more hours on the modelling bench, I'll definitely let you know Dalton.

And I have just checked your fb profile and your Mk3 Supra is absolutely amazing. What a lovely beast! Keep up the great work you've done to it, really like it from bottom to top. Well done :)

Regards,

Karl

Really like your subject matter i build/have built quite a few of the tamiya jdm style kits and the fit and finish of the parts is sexond to none nice work on all your endeavours i have seen thus far .just one question out of curiousity i have used the fine white tamiya primer and had great results just curious as to your use of the plasti kote primer instead thanks again for having the site look forward to seeing future builds from you

Hello Chuck, many thanks for your kind words about my work, that is very much appreciated :) Yeah I fully agree with you about the quality of the Tamiya kits, I also like their older.. JDM ones as considering their age, they go together quite well. Regarding the primer, I was using the Plasti Kote primer on my early builds, before starting to use the airbrush for the primer. I wouldn't recommend it though as the nozzle is too big and the finish was always quite rough. I would recommend you keep using the Tamiya primer. Some months ago I also used the Super Fine Primer from Mr.Hobby and was actually surprised at how smooth the finish turned out. I am currently using automotive primer, the 2K one. It requires some preparation, but I quite like the finish. But the Tamiya spray can is a much easier & faster option though! Hope that helps!

Hello Karl,

i recently commented on one of your videos, and it was really helpful.

this website is great to share our hooby, JDM cars are the best ^_^

I have one question in mind though, what is the difference of 2k clear and 1k clear?

my current clear is the Tamiya TS65 clear coat..

Planning to make a Toyota Crown Athlete Rojam.

keep up the good work!!!

-Timothy.

Hello Timothy,

Many thanks for your kind words about my site, very appreciated. I'm doing my best to help new comers getting into this hobby of ours! I remember your recent comment on YouTube and am glad that you also visited the site. I have to agree with you, JDM cars are my favourite too, as you can see from the cars I built so far!

There is quite a bit of difference from 2K to 1K clear, mostly during the preparation. 2K is an automotive clear where you're required to mix the clear with a hardener and then with thinner. This provides a harder, deeper finish which is more durable too. This however takes longer to dry than 1K, usually around 24 hours to become dry enough to start sanding. 1K on the other hand is simply mixed with thinner (if required) and sprayed directly. The Tamiya you're using is a 1K in a spray can, very convinient to use. I personally prefer 2K since it dries harder than 1K, allowing me to polishing it with a buffer wheel with less worrying that I might polish through the clear. It however takes some time to prepare and you're required to clean the airbrush right away due to the hardener too.

Hope that helps Timothy and thanks once again,

Karl

Hello wes, many thanks for your kind words about my work and the site, that is very much appreciated. Making a new article on the site, like a tutorial or review, takes a lot of time to complete. So receiving such feedback means a lot to me to keep me motivating into adding new content.

Thanks once again,

KARL,

This is weird. I went to reply to your YT msg. but the msg. button wasn't visible? Odd.

That is great that you've been watching GTChannel. That is us. The Autofeed is an avenue to present and promote our partners, as well as giving us a place to try other content that may not be of interest to the regular GTC audiences.

In reading your note, I thought of something interesting. What about a HOW TO subscription service instead of products - I mean the products work here as well, but you push to Amazon and other sites for the hobby that have products. You just get a affiliate fee - they do all the shipping and ecommerce. The subscription model could be a pay wall, so they get how to's on different products, but the 70-100 people a day or whatever purchase a 2.95 monthly subscription. And you grow from there.

My email is attached above.

Scott

Hello Scott, yeah that's odd if the reply button wasn't visible on YT.. strange! Maybe it's a sign that we should turn to the traditional email to communicate!

That's great being part of GTChannel! I'm honoured being contacted by you after watching so many GTChannel videos for many years! Always been interested in the JDM scene and your videos always kept me informed and up to date about this.

Once again, many thanks for your suggestions, that is very appreciated. I shall send you an email later on today.

Thanks again,

Karl

Hello Karl,

Great work on interior, I like clean lookin two-tone. Could You share type of flock? I am interesten in to the color. Waiting for next update.

By the way thank You for comment on site. Keep watching new posts I am before finish of R33 NIsmo with simple upgrades.,

Hello Lukas,

Many thanks for visiting my site once again and even leaving a feedback. And BIG thanks also for your nice comments about my work on the BRZ, that is very appreciated and I'm glad you like the interior!

As for the flocking, I am using the one from Hiroboy, the Charcoal one. Here's the link:

http://www.hiroboy.com/search?q=flocking

No problem for the comment, I love visiting your site from time to time. It's coming along great and I'm liking the updates you guys post up. But for some reason, I can't seem to find the Nismo R33 you mentioned. Do you have a link for that please? I'm interested in seeing a Nismo R33 in progress, love that model!

Also, speaking of websites, my site will undergo a major update as from next week too. I've already made some background progess on it, which is not yet visible. Hopefully will get it ready in a few weeks time and launch it right after! Thanks for being there with me since the beginning Lukas!

Regards,

Karl

Hi Karl great to see you still doing fantastic quality builds.i wonder what glue you use on the vehicles lights and how you paint them as when I used to do it the lights went cloudy and the paint went funny

Hello Callum, many thanks for your kind words about my work, very appreciated.

For the transparent parts, I always use normal white PVA glue, the same used by carpenters! It's great for clear parts since it's water based and once it fully dries, it becomes transparent. If your lights are getting cloudy/frosty, I'm assuming you were using super glue or plastic cement for them. That type of glue makes clear parts foggy once dry. White PVA glue takes some time to fully dry and get transparent, but it creates a great bond that does not affect the clear parts.

For all other uses, I use super glue though. It's great and has a strong bond for attaching parts. You have to be careful not to use a big amount as it tends to whiten the area, but the good thing is that it does not attack the paint during drying.

Hope that helps Callum and thanks once again.

Hello Karl,

After long time, I again check Your page, I am really happy that You still work on models.

Evo VII looks great I love what You done with interior, finally again very nice kit from You! I checked also workbench of Subaru. Again very nice upgrade of engine. I will follow whole build.

Let me inform You that I finally finished our (my + my friends) page ► scale-modelworks.com. We are still under process of old project uploading and so on.

I would like to wish You Merry Christmas and Happy new year.

Lukas

Hello Lukas,

Once again, many thanks for checking my page out and for your kind words about my work. That is very appreciated. And yes, I still work on model cars! Slowly, very slowly.. but still there!!!

Thanks for sharing with me your new page. I have visited it this morning and I really like what I saw! The layout is very neat and I really like the way you divided the cars depending on their country! I really like the fact that when you move the mouse over pictures, their description appears. Box reviews and Paint Tips are also very helpful. All in all, website is looking great, interesting & helpful.. Keep it all up! (Ohh, and I really like the Eunos too!!)

I would really like to wish you all the very best for this festive season too.
