These are just some of the parts I have primed and or painted, I still have another two boxes full of parts and a rack of plated parts on the way. I wonder how many I'll get finished between now and I-Hobby Expo?

about the blades:

you should check your local art supply store for them . I have Asel art supply ( i think they are in california too). They sell 100 #11 blades in a pack for just $20.00.

Guys, you all are very inspiring and helpful.

I have taken all of yall's advice and put them all together, and I think i MIGHT have found my paint technique. After a talk with yall, I went to my local hobbytownUSA and had a talk with the model painter there. He recommended me ALCLAD II Micro Fill Primer. Let me tell u guys, I LOVE THIS STUFF!

It is laquer based and goes on thin and still leaves all the detail in the model. Then he told me (like some of yall did) to thin with laquer thinner and it has made all the difference. The paint atomizes so much better with this stuff. I JUST did my first coat and it already looks pretty good (albeit, thin).

I cant tell you how much time I have spent here reading and looking at what yall have done! Gives me a chance to start a cool hobby and really be around the things I love CARS CARS AND CARS. :)

I will post pics of my paint job (Ferrari F430) . I was going to re-do my mustang but I had a close look and I wet sanded out most of the detail from trying to strip the paint with sand paper. now I know that u use the purple pool :).

Later Guys! Pics soon!!
