Hey All

Very new here and new to modeling (well its been awile anyways). Just got the Revell Shelby GT500 1/12 scale kit in the mail today.
Well I got the block halfs glued together and the bottom side if the motor sanded smoth.
For the body of the car I sanded some casting lines out of in them wet sanded it with IDK maby 500-600 grit and just go done primering it.
I used krylon rubby brown primer out of a can (IDk if this in normal but the cans almost gone LOL).

Question when I wet sand the primer what grit should I use? I was thinking 2K grit.

Contact customer service and request a replacement part. I have built this kit and it is pretty nice although kind of simple.

Update today

Well today Im back at it again. Got the motor, oil pan, and supercharger painted krylon matte silver.For the Headers i scraped the casting lines off so there smother looking now, them I used krylon metalic stainless steel. When I spraid the stainless steel the metalic started building up on the headers so what I did was after they dried I took a dry wash cloth and wiped away all the exess* metalic. Over all I think it turned out good.

The pic on the right is before and the pic on the left is after I wiped away all the exess* metalic

Sorry for the crappy pics.
