    Doesn’t your weather go from -20 and blowing to +30 with 99% humidity with a week of spring flooding in between?? :D

    I will try the Tamiya decanted unless I find a better midnight blue

    Seems like weather really effect the paint curing process....

    I never experience it since i live on tropical area....

    When the weather goes bad.... did the paint not cure?

    ' May i know what enamel brand you are using? '

    Yes.You may.Testor's Enamel.


    The 1/4 ounce bottle. $1.39 and $1.49 ones.

    ' But what model you are building '

    It's a Lindberg.Like this one.


    They sold out of the Mercedes Racer.

    These kits are simple kits.

    I picked that because I don't have a lot of time to build model kits.


    I see.... you are using testor.... 

    The most important is not the kit simple or not.... 

    But more to self statisfaction..... since we are not build for anyone....

    Good luck on your progresss.... hope to see more pic coming......

    Still stuck in paint, now starting to think about masking the blue number and spraying the gold,...

    Anyway it'll be a bit, I have too many other things to keep me busy,...stupid stupid stupid


    Masking the number will be quite a job.....

    Amazing build so far..... keep it coming......

    Progress report.

    Cut some parts off parts trees.

    Did it with Exacto knife. Used little piece of hobby plywood underneath. Perfect!

    Picking out a glue next.Testors original or thin solvent glue? Leaning towards testor's because of gaps between parts and that is what I am used to.

    BTW Paints are on the way. Enamels instead of acrylics because they cover better.

    Just recommended colors. Red, Flat black,Wood,silver and flat brass.


    May i know what enamel brand you are using?

    From what i experinced.... i choose enamel not by their coverage.... 

    But what model you are building..... since its old model car kit... people usually finish real car with enamel .... so it may look real at some point....  corect me if wrong......
