13 April 2014 - 04:59 AM

I just had a set of decals shatter on me. Can anyone tell me if Aoshima has a replacement service?

Perhaps someone who has built this can comment.



Has anyone used Novus 3-2-1 to polish out Acrylic Enamel (Scalefinishes)?

I have one small area that is duller than the rest of my '58 Corvette. I don't have (and cannot get) Tamiya compounds. Let me know your experience using Novus and/or polishing Acrylic Enamel.



Alclad black base vs. Tamiya spraycan gloss black, which is thinner?

09 March 2014 - 08:32 AM

I have always used Tamiya gloss black as a base for Alclad chrome and polished aluminum. I would like to try Alclad's black base because it appears to be thinner and there would be less waste sprayed through an airbrush than the Tamiya spray can.



How do you paint a 2 color panel with a decal separating the colors?

07 March 2014 - 05:02 AM

I am doing a motorcycle cowling with red over blue separated by a white wedge-shaped decal.
Intuitively, i would make a masking tape duplicate of the decal and apply over a gloss white base coat. Spray each color then replace the tape with the decal.
I am concerned that the decal will be recessed????
Suggestions? Prayers?
