Another beginner question, painting details

12 March 2012 - 04:24 AM

I'm wondering how everyone does this. Do you paint the details, like the turn signal markers, tail lights (that don't come with clear pieces), fog lights, etc. over the clear cloat, or do you paint them before the clearcoat. I was thinking before the clearcoat, but then I was thinking parts like the flat black grill areas needed to be painted after, because they were flat black, so I am unsure?. Thanks!

Newbie Question: burning through primer

06 March 2012 - 10:36 AM

I have primered the body of the car and while sanding to smooth everything out, I had some white of the body start to show through the primer. Do I primer the whole thing again? or do I just spray primer in the spots that are now showing white? I tried to search this but didn't find what I was looking for. Pictures below show what I am talking about.

My first Model Kit - update 3/11/12

21 February 2012 - 09:00 AM

Well, I figured that I finally have enough progress to post up on the workbench. This is my first model kit that isn't a snap-fit. Since I am a noob, I did not try anything too difficult. About the extent of my bravery has gone to flocking the interior floor. I will probably paint the body this weekend. I have the yost airbrushing video on the way, so I may wait a little longer to paint until I watch it, or I may just give it a whirl! So far this build has been pretty easy going. haven't really had too much of an issue with getting things together. Anyway here are the photos of the build so far. Constructive criticism is welcomed :D Thanks!

Had to take a quick break from the TZH build. This says snaptite on the box, but the snaps sure didn't hold very well. Also did a little painting. Just wanted to share! Thanks!
