This is a Fujimi Porsche Cayman I finished a while back.  It's built box-stock and the paint is House of Kolor Kandy Tangerine over Testors Metalizer Brass, topped with HOK clear.   Comments are welcome.  Thanks for looking!

Paint looks PERFECT as always Larry. Do you use primer under the metalizer? Seems like you told me once that you don't have to.

Thanks for the kind words, Chris.

 

I have used Metalizer as an undercoat with no primer in the past, but it's been a while since I've done that.  On the Cayman I used automotive primer and House of Kolor 3-part sealer before the painting the Brass undercoat.  Since I discovered the sealer, I've been using it on all my models because it does such a good job of preventing "ghosting" of mold seams and other stuff that has to be sanded off the body. 

 

Unfortunately, my local HOK distributer isn't carrying the sealer in small bottles (4 oz) any more and is telling me the smallest he'll go is a quart!  I'm hoping I can find an alternative before my current stash runs out.

Future is equally effective as a barrier and a fraction of the cost.

And it's at your supermarket...

Good looking build!,i'm currently building the base cayman but i'm finding that masking the window trim is a bit difficult,what technique did you use?

Thanks, Curtis.

 

I used black gouache on the window trim.  You can get a tube any place that sells art supplies, like Hobby Lobby here in the US.  I thin it with water with a tiny drop of dish soap and brush it on the trim a neatly as possible.  For any place where I go "outside the lines", the excess can be cleaned off with a toothpick dipped in water.  If I totally mess it up, it can all be wiped clean with a wet Q-Tip.  The process is pretty risk-free.

 

Hope this helps!
