Heres a few tips that help me, i know its over said but with trucks, take your time, it can get really aggravating, i just push it a side or pick my stuff up and put it away for a bit. The moebius kits are that way for me, the instructions can be confusing and hard to read. I use a really reasonably priced set of brushes i got from micheals, around 10 bucks for the set 8 brushes, i wouldnt use the testors brushes unless thats all you can get, they are too course and stiff. When using rattle cans, i know its hard, i still struggle with it, light coats, i know your gonna want to see color NOW, but thats how runs and wrinkling happen. If you can, id think about getting an airbrush, micheals has a beginner set up, bottles, hose and gun with the coupon its worth the investment, the compressor its what costs the most, but ebay can help. Detail work, sand the pieces, get the tree and excess mold off the part, sand and putty the pieces that are built in halves, motors and trannies, seats, that sort of thing, that helps to achieve the realistic look. Heres a big 1, build for yourself, build it how you want, you wont enjoy it if you dont do that. I built a 56 chevy, bought thst kit and a newer corvette kit, my wife was not happy i bought a kit just for parts, but the end result was winning best of show at its 1st show. I know this hobby can cost a lot of money but its kinda like golf, its most aggravating yet most relaxing time youll have, if you need any help, advice, whatever, dont be afraid to ask, this forum is a very good thing, im glad i joined it.
