    I just sprayed Creatix transparent orange on my 66 GTO and the product is great but at first it looked way to fluorescent but after a few more coats it settled down and last night I sprayed Testors one coat laquer clear on it and it looks really good! In my experience with Future on the Creatix paint is it lifted it right off of the body almost better than purple power on chrome so im not real sure what went wrong... Just this guys 2 cents

    I am from the Denver metro area and I agree a few years back it seemed like there were a lot more people in this hobby now I find myself pretty much hitting up Michaels and Hobby Lobby to get my supplies and kits I dont like going to the local Hobbytown unless thats my only option (Those guys are very rude) I would like to meet others who share in my love for this hobby and learn from them!

    Stupid question but when you put down the primer and paint does it not cover up the wash?

    I agree with the previous few statements I have been building since I was a kid and thought I was pretty good at it but then I saw some of the work on here and was blown away by the quality. At first it was intimidating but I have learned so much just by reading all of the posts and looking at the pictures that are posted. This forum is a great resource and everybody on here is very helpful I look forward to seeing your Shelby when its done!!!
