  2. Hi all. quick question ... i am having troubles getting light colours (i.e. white, yellow, tan) getting good coverage over white plastic. I have tried primer (albeit grey), no primer, silver undercoat. I have tried more than one coat. Very unhappy with coverage. I am brushing with Testors enamels and Testors Model Master with no luck, would like to use airbrushing, but can't afford to purchase just yet so trying to make do with what i can get Any suggestions would be helpful. Working on my next project and everything else is turning out nicely with the body and frame being sprayed (Duplicolor rattle cans), just the engine and other parts not turning a nice solid colour for my liking. Thanks guys

    i was thinking of trying Duplicolor (just for the better choice of colours), but need to ask ... which primer should i use? And suggestions for getting better results. I live in an apartment and have limited access to be able to spray bodies etc. Thanks, appreciate any input to help me improve

    Here's my latest build. Revell Special Edition '69 Chevy Nova SS. I built it as if I had found an old race version and restored it to be a street legal car. Overall, happy with it. Interior hand painted My first attempt at a 2-tone colour with "rattle cans". Also, I tried using Rustoleum Painters Touch Clear Gloss. I think I over applied on the hood, and almost over applied on the body. (I was trying to rush maybe) Let me know what you guys think
  5. Hi All. Chris here from SW Ontario. Just getting back into the hobby after almost 30 years away. I picked up the hobby when I was young and was more into just doing the models, not detailing them. After having almost two weeks down time from work, was getting bored and thought I'd get back into it for the winter. Now spending the time to be a bit more "detailed". I did cars, trucks and aircraft. Now mainly focused on 1:24 scale cars. Mainly classics. One of my other hobbies during the warmer months is photography, and only recently (after browsing the other pictures of great builds here) am starting to combine the two. I have done 4 models in the last couple months and will post as I get them photographed
