    Looks great! Dumb question but what glue do you use to hold up those pieces for painting? I'm trying to find a better way to paint smaller parts.

    Thanks Rob for the advice! So far the kit seems to be well made, but like I said I don't really have anything to compare it to. I'm looking forward to getting the interior started.

    Thanks! I don't really have anything to compare to haha, but I'm thinking about trying a Tamiya one next

    Finally got a little bit of time in on this model and 'knock on wood' things are going pretty smoothly. I'm hoping to spray the chassis soon so i can get some more stuff together, but it's been pretty hot out. Any pointers are appreciated!

    Ferrari 599 GTO
    So I recently joined this forum and figured I should get to work on my first real model! I got my big screw ups out of the way (at least I hope so) on my first attempt with a Chevy Nova. I'm sure at some point I will get back to that one, but want to start with a clean slate.

    Might be slow goin' for a while with progress and pics, but if anyone has some feedback on ways to improve my techniques or any big issues I should know about with this particular kit I'm all ears!

    So here's the body of the Ferrari...I will hopefully be painting in Tamiya Italian Red.

    Good to know, I'll have to try priming first and I'll definitely use some styrofoam and toothpicks next time I'm spraying anything. Thanks again!

    I haven't primed any of the smaller parts I'm painting. I'll definitely making sure it's well stirred before using and use some thinner if needed. Hopefully that will work. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I shake the paint up before using them, but haven't tried stirring so I'll give it a try. Good to know not everyone has issues with them so I'll keep trying and let them dry a little longer between coats. Thanks for the replies!

    Testor Enamel Paints
    I recently bought a dozen or so different 1/4 oz enamel Testor paints to use on my first couple models and so far everything has been working great except for flat and gloss black. I seem to be running into an issue using both paints when brushing pieces. The paint doesn't cover very well, shows all the brush strokes and clumps up. Am I doing something wrong? Should I maybe try thinning those colors?

    New to hobby
    I have done some models in the past when I was much younger, but recently picked the hobby back up! I'm definitely at the beginning of the learning curve and can't wait to turn out some cars like you all do.
