This came up on a paper model list.
Looks like it would make a great backdrop.

I fell in love with this, when I first saw someone else's build on the forum.
Really enjoyed building it.

Eye Candy from me.

How do you open paint jars?

I have a few paint jars which I cannot open. I can loosen the lid with a small screwdriver.

Is there a better way. (I am assuming there is)


What do you use as primer?

The couple of kits I have built, all seem to require a lot of parts to be painted black.
What I have been doing is undercoating with white, then spraying black. I do this because the paint doesn't stick very well especially on the chassis, which gets a lot of handling.
I figured if I just undercoated (primered) with black, it would save a lot of time and fiddling.
What primer do people use?
For white and grey I use Tamiya rattle cans.
I tried some grey Badger which sprayed beautifully, but reacted with Tamiya paints or Tamiya reacted with it, so I have stopped using it.
I guess I am looking for a slightly cheaper option than Tamiya, if available. If not I'll buy some Tamiya black primer.
