    Want to get into models what is the estimated cost for tools,painting options etc to get started
    Just want to see what it might cost for the beginner to get started as far as tools and such . Is there a recommended list of tools you must have? Like I said I haven't built a model in 40 or more years till I built a fire engine for my bro I laws memorial and after going on this site I can see I am so far out of my league as far as what most of you do but I am a perfectionist and I can do some amazing stuff when I want to. Just trying to save time and frustration so any body want to take a newbie under their wing? I will post a pic of what I did please don't laugh.

    Newbie what do I need to use for painting
    Well I see I have a lot to learn. I was just going to ask what type if paint to use on a model car. I can see that people are very serious on detail here. I just built a model fire truck for my brother inlaw's memorial and had many problems trying to paint it. I used regular spray paint for the main parts but when I used the testors enamel paints I was unhappy with the results ie brush strokes and such. I guess my question is what will I need to use on my next project which I think will be 1956 Chevy Bel Air two tone model. Any advise will be much appreciated.
