painting my carbon fxx
Posted 01 September 2012 - 02:18 AM
I'm about to do the body on the carbon fxx from scale motorsport and I need some help.
I bought model master primer, black lacquer, and ultra gloss clearcoat (also lacquer).
Are the carbon decals compatable with these paints? I dont have good, quick access to tamiya paints and I dont airbrush. These were the best I could get.

Thanks for the feedback!
Is the model master primer enamel? If so, don't use it under the Lacquer. When in doubt,test on something. Also,don't "settle" for just what you can find. There must be an automotive type paint & body supply locally,or at least explore the usual big box auto stores like autozone,Pep Boys etc.Get some Plasticote or Dupli-color primer,
All three cans are lacquer. Everytime ive ever messed with something for automotive, its gone....bad!
