Spray a little clear after each taping before spraying the next color. The clear will seal off any places that might bleed through.  Cool project. Ambitious paint job!

 

It would be cool if someone cast that long bed and bench seat interior. I have a project sitting that I will need to do that same work. I even have the cooler set aside. See below!

Jeremy,

Awesome job on the long bed conversion!  I echo the suggestion above to get someone to cast it!  A suggestion - if you can get your hands on some Tamiya tape, I think you will have a better time with your masking.  You may also want to try pre-cutting the tape off the model and then applying it.  I have learned the hard way about not burnishing the edges of the tape on more than one occasion! :wub:   Look forward to the next update.

Thanx for the compliments fellas and the suggestions as well.I am going to slow way down on this paintjob this round. I had a a chance to pick Dr. Cranky's brain on painting.I found out I didn't let the pink cure long enough before laying the tape and spraying the next color. As for cutting the tape on the model I have never done that,I bought a hobby cutting sheet that I use to cut my masking tape.I also agree with burnishing the edges of the tape,I thought I had got it really well but the blow out prove I didn't get it well enough.

Everything was out of the pond lastnight.

The cab and hood will need some minor sand after this round of primer.The box didn't fair so well after coning out of the pond as I thought.

CommissionedBuildUp34_zpse712e891.jpg

It needs a lot of work.

So back to the bench I go.

Thanx for lookin'

this is pretty cool. I use bmf on some wacky paint jobs as its thinner and gives a really crisp edge.

kc7wzl, yes I did seal the tape after I masked it. But it and the krylon didn't get along.

CommissionedBuildUp42.jpg

So the hood and box are back in the pond for a week.The cab faired a little better.

As you can see there are some various size paint blowouts. But I can fix these.Once those are fixed I can start on the stripes with gel pens.

Thanx for lookin'

Jeremy.
