In Topic: Red or white?

16 June 2013 - 11:12 AM

I am not speaking from experience here but i remember reading something about somebody using a pink primer in order to get a really nice red colour on a ferrari build. I cannot remember where i read this so take it with a pinch of salt but it could be worth looking into.


In Topic: Looking for help airbrushing tamiya metallic paints

I have also heard that windscreen washer fluid can be used with tamiya paints as a cheap option but i doubt it would solve my issues with the blobs and lumps.

 

I did however manage to get it working well by just sieving the paint through a piece of grill from a Tamiya castrol celica kit ! after doing that the paint flowed through the airbrush like a dream !

cool, thanks for the help, i'll go out and get myself some cheap thinner and give it a go. The Tamiya X thinner has been pretty good for me with none metallics but hopefully the cheap lacquer thinner will improve everything. Do i need to look out for anything when buying cheap lacqeur thinners or should i just get the cheapest one available ?

 

thanks again - phil
