So what was the verdict on the Rustoleum primer? I want to use it on a Revell body, but only if it works!
Also will the Tamiya clear be glossy after wax and polish or will i have to get the glossy clear for it to shine?
The Rustoleum plastic primer is ok. its thick though. The Rustoleum sandable primer is too 'hot' for plastics. It begins to craze. From what I've been guided towards, as well as used is the Duplicolor Primer and Paint. I'm a very big fan, in fact, I just sprayed another model with it today and once again good results.
For the clear, I used the Testors and it was pretty good. came out glossy and smooth. All depends how glossy you want the paint to be I guess. For me it was a good amount of shine without any wax. I was impressed.
I let one of the body's I had with duplicolor paint (no clear) gas out for a week and used the Rustoleum clear on it today and it had a much glossier look. I did one pretty wet coat and it was enough.
The Model I am on now is a 66 Shelby GT350 and I want to have the stripe decals. I'm probably going to use the testors clear because it doesn't spray out as thick as the rustoleum so it will be easier to control. But if I do a body with no decals on it I think the Rustoleum clear may be my first choice.
If there is one thing I learned is trial and error. This is what has worked for me with practice models. I just painted the GT350 (which is not a practice car) and it came out way better than my first car. I'll post some pictures of it later or tomorrow.
