marks models dont tend to have a huge selection, they have a spot out in rathcoole aswel.

a great online site is towerhobbies, based in the us an very good prices.
they have everything from rc csrs and panes and choppers, to wooden ships and plastic kits of cars and bikes. all the tools, paints, and batteries etc aswell. huge site.

etamiya is also a good site for tamiya models only.

use modelling putty, you can get differant types, but a common one would be "green stuff"
it cmes as two strips of putty, one blue an one yello, pull off a bit of eah and mix em together.

more blue makes it darker and dry faster, yellow makes it lighter and maniplatable longer.

ya can get it in gamesworkshop shops. i've used it on making scenery before for other moels.

You have to primer the plastic and do VERY LIGHT coats at a time. My brother did a R34 with Tamiya paint and it turned out great. Plus he did it outside in the garden lol! For other bits, enamel paint is the best

If you want to give the effect of wear, this is a short video on 'dry brushing'. Looks good on brake calipers, discs and the underside of your car Smile

sand them down use primer on all parts also take out of the molds because you will end up with un painted bits when you take them off the molds
