Mack Fire Engine

19 February 2014 - 04:33 PM

On my bench right now. The Revell Snap Tite Mack Fire Engine. It may take a while to get this one done because of the cold weather and me not having a dedicated place to paint. Right now I have washed and scuffed all the parts. I have my heater going in my out building, and some lights rigged up. Hopefully I can catch a break and get  some primer on tonight. It was a pretty day here so I figured I would attempt it.

So, hopefully the body will dry off with enough time for me to shoot some primer tonight. That's what I'm hoping for anyway.

It's been a looooong time coming. Some ups and some downs. Overall not to bad for my first model in a very long time. Please excuse the quality of the pics, they are from my cell since my camera decided to die on me.

Detail paint question

13 May 2013 - 09:39 AM

This may be an odd question but I have a body that is ready to be detail painted. (read trim, moldings, etc.) I used Plasticote primer and Duplicolor paint. I have not cleared it yet. My two questions are, will the Testor's paint I have (enamels mostly) be ok to paint the details over the lacquer paint? Also will the Duplicolor clear harm the enamels after I give them time to cure? The body has been painted for about 3 months now so there should be no curing issues with the Duplicolor paint. Thanks in advance!
