    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

    painting over molded colors
    What's the best way to paint parts that are molded in color ? I'm trying to paint something red over grey plastic and it seems to bleed through or darken the red. A while  back I was trying to paint a car that had white accents. The body was molded in green. I primed it with tamiya white primer and used a silver base but the green still bled through.

     I'm thinking that like many modelers he is experimenting with what products are available. Everyone has a different way of painting and you have to experiment until you find a system that works for you and are comfortable with. 10 different modelers paint their cars 10 different ways. I  usually  use tamiya acrylic base with automotive urethane clear.

    That would be pretty meticulous but it may work.

    Wetsanding it wont fix that problem. It looks like the metallic has moved from either sanding or the first coat of clear was too heavy. 
    I'm thinking strip it.

    Yes, that is ine of the issues that I have with it. The windshield doesn't match the contour of the roof and keeps popping out and I didn't want to ruin it with a bunch of glue.
