    I read some where that in blue/red/yellow plastics that the grain of the plastic creates a marbling effect. I wasnt sure if it would show through the primer and paint.

    Marbling
    Howdy all, I read in a few places about how marbling occors in colored plastic, but I found no answers on how to fix/compensate for it.

    If anyone has some pointers/information about it I'd be happy to be a knowlege sponge.

    Thanks a lot man. And on the contrary, friend, I actually have about 5-6 glued together, but eaisly taken apart and non painted kits haha. But that spoon idea is great! Nippers are a must with taking things off the trees, as I have seen. Haha.

    66 Pro Street Nova
    Howdy all, I'm Thomas, my first post here. I've picked up an AMT Pro Street Nova at the ol' hobby shop. I havent built models in nearly 7 years, and they were never all that good anyway , I think you guys would call them 'Glue Bombs' haha. Anyhow, Im having a bit of trouble starting up this one. I was just wondering if anyone here had some, not tips, but like pointers. I think what is throwing me off the most is the fact that the plastic is blue, and not the typical grey that I was used to.

    Any pointers would really help, thanks!
