      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Thanks for all of the advice everyone .  I asked beacause I did the amt 70 1/2 motion camaro that was molded in green. I  used silver and tamiya white primer as base but the green still bled through the white areas.

    Painting white over red plastic
    I'm considering painting a kit that I have white. The problem is that the kit is molded in red. Any suggestions on a primer or basecoat that will work for this ?

    Incredible work Randy ! The detail is unbelievable. I just now found this thread. I'm struggling with my box stock LaFerrari right now. I tried to do the candy apple red on it. Failed twice and went with the Italian red.

    Thanks again Pete, What I don't like about the mist coats is that they seem to leave a rough texture like orange peel

    How long should you give tamiya spray paint to dry before sanding out dust or hair in each coat ?

    I did read that article. it is really good. Thanks for the advice Pete. It looks like I should probably strip it again.

    This was my first time using it .  first coat went on well. second coat looked a little peely on top so I  added a bit more and I'll bet that's what did it. This wa right ot of the can. I'm not having the best of luck learning the airbrush.

    I'm  trying to paint my Tamiya LaFerrari for the 3rd time. After applying  the 2nd clear coat I noticed that the white primer started showing through. Anyone else ever have this happen?

    Paint and masking qustions on Laferrari
    I'm building a Tamiya Laferrari and I  could use some advice. Originally I wanted to do a 3 stage candy paint job but I'm afraid that the paint will wind up too thick for the intricate parts and detail on this kit. What do you guys think ?
    I also want to know what the best fine line masking tape is for models. I've tried tamiya's tape but it had a lot of bleed through and wasn't very flexible.
    Thanks, Tim
