Topics I've Started

My Raptor Snap-Tite

22 March 2015 - 12:52 PM

After seeing a couple of these builds pop up, I thought Id grab one and see how it worked out. 

 

I flocked the floor mats gray, and got the door panels painted a gloss gray. It was weird, when I tried to paint the door panels the gloss gray, there were certain areas that the paint would 'run away' from, on both pieces. 

 

This plastic also seems thicker. Whenever I try to file/sand something, it seems to chew through my material and paper. I decided to scrap the metal axle and kit wheels for something a little different

I have since made sure the bed rails, hood inserts, and such fit, which everything does very well. The pictures make look a little unlevel, its only because part of my mat is warped


Yamaha YZF-R1

I got it for a good deal at a show and started working on it. I was surprised at how much I liked doing it vs 1/24 and 1/25 cars, I think the larger pieces had something to do with it, or it was just a change of pace for me

 

Didn't really know how to 'mod' too much on a bike as Im not all to familiar with them. I see soooooo much room for improvement, but I guess compared to the amount of completed cars vs ones started over my 'career' in models, starting a bike and getting it finished was kind of big for me

Aerosol Clears and what they work over

22 August 2014 - 09:31 AM

Im trying to switch from the small cans of Tamiya clear (semi gloss is what I have now) to a larger can (say Krylon for example, since its what I already purchased)

 

I bought a can of Krylon ColorMaster  CoverMax Gloss Clear. I sprayed a spoon purple with tamiya from a rattle can. Waited a few hours and went to spray the krylon over it and it seemed to wash away/move the paint and not 'coat' it

 

I tried doing some research on the clear that I have here, but I couldnt come up with an answer as to whether or not it was a good product. Ive seen claims that krylon is no longer what it used to be, but am looking for a good can of 'department store' clear that works over tamiya aerosols and acrylics, as well as some of testors one coat lacquers, and even model master enamels for that matter

 

Any help to a direct product would be great. I know people say 2 part clears are great, but Id rather not deal with the fumes and mess of it all

Thank you in advance


Gravity fed single action

28 April 2014 - 07:05 AM

Im trying to figure out which is a good one to use. Ive got a paasche H set that I use for 'mass' sprays as well as my bodys. But Im wanting something that I can just put a little bit of paint into and do some finer things, not to mention having a second gun is never a bad thing

 

I cant seem to find many at what seems a reasonable price, let alone know how big the mm size tip is prior to using it.

 

Any input is appreciated
