i build to build not to worry about it after once its built it goes on a shelf and sits there. i also dont build to win awards tho.. after about a a year i'll dust them all off to pretty them up. never had any issues with damage to the paint either.
you could waste more time trying to protect and keep them dust free then you could building and IMHO thats just silly.......plus sometimes when i do that yearly dusting i may decided to tear down and rebuild. my hobby allowance doesn't always allow me to have a stash of unbuilts...
My 2 cents worth...iv been using the same bathroom exhaust fan in my homemade booth for over 4 years now with no issues whatsoever iv sprayed acyrlis enamels laquars thinners u name it through this thing and nothing. Its 120cfm I got for 30$ at the depot. Vented out the window it sucks like a mother.
Unless your a super newb and spray and entire can in one pass you should be fine. Just a note the fan I'm using is an all plastic unit (other then the motor itself)
Howdy Iv read this thread about a dozen times now and never replied. Its not that im not blown away, because i am, i just couldn't decided what to say. so here it is!
OMFG this is amazing! your work is beyond belief!!!
And hopefully to boost you a little more, i would just like you to know that because of this thread and your skills, i decided i no longer wanted to wait for one of the big company's to kit my actual 1:1, 2011 dodge caliber, so i embarked on the quest of building it from scratch using your build as inspiration motivation and a lil teaching! and so far im doing pretty good if i do say so. So a big thank you to you and your skills! Keep up the good work!
how long do u wait between colors/layers?
how long did the roof in the tutorial take u from start to finish?
and thirdly are you outta your mind!??!!?! lol thats skill if i ever saw it, but BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH it looks tedious lol
looks good did u have to modify the nastruck chassis? im trying to build one of these that missing alot of parts and yhat looks good what u got there. will u be using the suspension from the nastruck as well?
oh man i just built a fire bottle for the first time and then i came on here and feel "under dressed" as theyd say lol going back to retry!! lol btw whats a penny? lol jkjk where i live we just phased out out pennys, no longer in circulation but now i have a good use for all the ones ibhave left!!
