AMT made a Joker Goon/Gotham City police car combo model that had a shotgun, machine gun and pistol in it.


In Topic: Working with Model Master Buffing Metalizer/ Update with pics 6/14/14

I started using the metalizers recently and found that you don't need primer underneath them, they seem to buff out better without the primer and they cover very well

with only one coat. I read that you only need a thin coat and the more you apply the less the buffing effect works.

In Topic: Painting torque thrust rims

Mike - I have thought about getting a piece of tubing to mask off the outer rim but I haven't found anything with the right diameter. I might be able to make

something with .010 styrene wrapped around a rod with the right diameter and tape it together.

 

Hugh - I know what you mean about the paint flowing off the brush. I noticed this when I was testing the paint on the chrome sprue.

Thanks for the tips, looks like I am going to have to work on my brush painting. I haven't been using thinner so I am going to try that.

Hugh - nice work on those rims, that's what I am trying to end up with. maybe a lighter shade of gray

 

Monty - I tested some acrylic paint on the chrome sprue and it doesn't adhere well. I havent tried the metalizer. I think a flat primer is more what im after.

 

Jesse - I will try that idea or just touch up lug nuts with a silver sharpie
