In Topic: Urethanes, can we talk about these?

Kevin I didn't take it at disrespectful. The model that I posted the panel lines are not gone. If you could see it in person you could tell. What I do is before I primer is cut the panel lines a little bit deeper so the clear coat won't fill in.

I strictly use urethanes paints (DuPont) To me they are the better then anything else on the market.

To answer some of your ?'s


#2 Hardener does have a shelf life, I can't tell you how long because where you live your humidity is different then where I live. The only way to make it last longer is to buy a can of Bloxygen. After you open your paint, hardener, & clear coat spray a little then close it.  


#3 DuPont


#4 I mix my paint different then the next person its just a preference, I spray my paint at 15-23 psi.


#5 I use a paasche to an Iwata to sata airbrushes & a sata jet

they make 2 kinds of gauges

1. single- how much pressure is in the take

2. dual- same as above, but with a regulator & gauge so you can reduce the pressure coming out. (I use this one)

Go to your local gas/welding company should fill it less then $10.00

You will also need a coupler on the gauges to hook-up your airbrush to it.


If you need anything else just let me know.

ZTony is right about putting white under red will make it pop. But if you

put a yellow base first it will make the red stand out more then white will.

Anytime I paint anything red I will use a yellow primer and  not that buff color primer .
