    Unbelievable kit. And will surely be following your progress. I'm just (attempting) to start a 1/12 Ferrari Tamiya 312T4 and could use a few hints

    Thanx for the heads-up. So if I'm glueing the axle sections together and they are different colours ie aluminium/semigloss black I would first build it, then slight sand, then spray prime, and then brush paint the individual colors?

    Newbie questions
    Hey fellas. Well I've just picked up a Tamiya 1:12 scale Ferrari 312 T4 off ebay at a good price. I'm very much looking forward to getting started but as this will be my first 'official' build I will need some newbie help along the way. Probably not a great choice of model to get into off the bat, but i do prefer the larger models and intend to get this right.

    1st Question: Before you start assembling the gear box etc do you need to paint the individual parts first (prime) or can you build the section and then prime/tape/paint?
    I mean..does the liquid cement (Tamiya thin/ Testors) still bond the painted parts?

    2nd Question: Is it better to brush the paint on the smaller parts or spray? Acrylic or Enamel?


    Can't wait to get started..And post pics and updates.

    Cheers. Brett
