  6. When to remove masking tape?

    One other comment to add here is that you shoudl rub down the tamya tape well after application - especially around raised or lowered profiles and contours around the body. sometimes paint will seep under the masking tape edge if it's applied too heavy - and the tape has not been rubbed down well. just make sure that the base coat was cured well first - or it'll peel off when you remove the tape...
  7. Hi All, I have a Hasegawa Touring car kit, and it came with these tyre transfers. Does anyone have an idea about how they are applied? They are not decals - as can be seen in the image, they are reversed. They remind me of the "rub on" fake tattoos that we had when we were kids... so I tried to "rub" a section of it onto a surface, it did not come away at all (you can see the "A" in a circle on the bi that's been cut away had been rubbed). There is no mention of them in the instruction manual, and no references I could find on-line. thanks for the help!!!!

  10. Hasegawa BMW 318i Touring Car Longhurst B&H version

    I have made a lot of progress - amongst packaing (to move house soon), a vacation (to Dubrovnik) and 2 business trips, one to Dearborn USA, and one to Istanbul in Turkey... been busy! The body was primed - several light coats of tamiya White primer over Zero grey primer Then the whole body was coated in a few coats of Zero White Then masked as shown & sprayed yellow. I used Camel Yellow from Zero, it came out a bit more orange than the images show, but it's close enough. Unfortunately, the Microsol was not able to make these after-market decals conform. I've got wrinkles & air pockets near raised moulding detail. Now, I'll admit I did apply them over the Zero Base coats - and not over a clear. How ever, I've done that before with no issue. I have used soooo much microsol, and sooo much hair drying - that I managed to warp the body (because I left the body in the spring-loaded tamiya paint stand, and it bowed out!) However, I plan to cut the bubbles and have another go at it with microsol Some of you may notice that I also messed up with the positioning of the transition from white to yellow. Now the racing number is half yellow & half whit - it should be all yellow, I think I'll make up for it by adding a decal over it that's yellow... Need some advise though - what do you reckon - paint the clear first then add te 2nd side's decal? or just try the same with the other side? Also - does anyone know of a stronger decal conforming product? thanks!
