  1. Hey guys I was just curious if anyone tried using the Vallejo Metal Colors to paint a body with? If so what clear coat would be suitable? I know Vallejo makes a gloss varnish specifically for these paints but I dont know how durable it is. I imagine 2k would probably work as well as future clear.
  2. Personally I prefer 1/24. Its the perfect small scale that maintains realistic proportions. Too often I see 1/25's that have that toy look because they are just a hair too small. Some 1/25's are perfectly fine though, you just have to research the kits individually. Going forward I would hope Revell commits to 1/24 full time.
  3. Take a toothpick and shave it down to a fine point with a razor blade. Use that to apply tiny details. Works great for dashboards too.
  4. Probably a Tamiya MK4 Supra. Well detailed, reasonably priced usually, and looks great in multiple colors.
  5. Very sorry to hear you can't continue your excellent work. Not sure in which way you are suffering sir but I wish all the best for you.
  6. My only idea that they would make a Defender 90 or a Discovery I or II. I'd buy all of them.
  7. Did you wash and sand the bodies before priming? This looks like the primer might have been sprayed too heavy on a part that may still have mold release agents on it. Tamiya is definitely the best out there in a spray can primer but Duplicolor is usually a pretty great sandable primer in its own right.
  8. I use vallejo air black for interiors and engine parts in combination with their regular acrylic brush paint Black
  9. I've used the vallejo gloss clear in spray cans. It's okay but takes longer to dry and I think would be inferior to wetlook clear. Perfect to clear coat other parts though, CF interiors for example. I hope they don't discontinue wetlook clear. I've been using ts-13 for a good while now though. It's a hotter paint but leaves a finer finish, not at tough as WLC though. You might want to stock pile it in case it isn't remade.
  10. Nice write up! Personally I think the best method is flocking in combination with spray adhesive. You have to mask off the areas you don't want covered which can be a pain but the results are worth in in my opinion. You can patch any mistakes with the white glue method afterwards. But it really delivers a clean and even finish.
  11. Tamiya paints are superior in my opinion. Duplocolor has a wider array of colors though, but you need to make sure if you use metallic that the flake is fine enough to look in scale. I have experienced chipping recently with Tamiya TS sprays but it might be user error and bad luck on my end.
  12. That's exactly how I would like to make it. Excellent job.
