Thanks Dave.

Oh...one more thing. Do you warm the paint cans? Or do you not have to worry about that because you are spraying in a temp controlled booth?
If you don't, do you have an opinion on it?

What a great collection of gorgeous vehicles, Dave. Wow. Fine work on all of them!!!

Thanks for the tips. I have to say you can never give Plastikote gray primer enough credit. What a great primer that is!

Dave,

I think it's great you're giving the newbie's a paint tutorial & your paint system obviously speaks for itself. Plus Virgil is right as that Plasti-Kote primer is a good foundation for most any paint situation. But that's the problem, in several states Plasti-Kote & other lacquer products are NOT available due to unrealistic air quality regulations. Both in AZ & here in CA these products you recommend are in fact, non exsistant..! I'm an old school painter myself & can appreciate your methods but I think we need to advise your readers that not all of these products are available in your area. Sorry if I sound like disclaimer Dan here but you need to think outside your box for this.

Thanks,


Hizoot :P

Right after I read Daves how-to
I grabbed a model that has had some seams smoothed out and followed what he said to do.
Tamiya Light Green TS-22 and Tamiya Clear.

Posted Image
I think it turned out alright

Thanks alot Dave..
This should be a Post Marked How-to..



Sorry to hear about you guys in AZ & CA.

Interesting. Very nice resluts, too.

One of the shops sells junker kits for next to nothing. I might pick one or two up and give this a "shot."

Dave, I saw some action on this, and I re-read it, and have a couple of questions for you.

1. Dupli-Color High-Build Primer is the filler primer, I'm guessing? I've never used it, as I always thought it would fill in panel lines, drip-rails, and such, as well as completely bury scripts and other little bits. As you don't put a lot of trim on your cars, that might not be as big a deal for you, but on anything you've built with details like that, have you found it to be a problem with that primer?

2. You don't sand your paint jobs? To make sure I understand, the final finish comes from a combination of sanding cloths and various polishing/rubbing compounds?

Very excellent and informative article. I'm a woodworker in real life and just recently got into spraying lacquers and I can see some similarities in your methods. I've had first hand experience with windows to work within and it is critical. Keep up the good work. For me, I get better each time I spray. It can be intimidating at first. But mistakes are the best teacher.

Dave,

I read with great interest, your incredibly informative post on painting. And then, I saw your examples. WOW. I am so impressed. I am getting together a list of supplies, and then I'll dive in. I truly wish that other experinced modelers would take the time that you have, to address other areas of model-building tips/skills. I have been building off and on for years, and I'm getting better in some areas, and still struggling in others.

Thank you for sharing, I am truly impressed and motivated!

Rod

David's posts appear to have been edited, either by someone, or due to one of the forum software changeovers. Let's let sleeping dogs lie on this one, please. -_-
