  6. Zero Paints

    I have ordered some Zero Paints from Hobby World, not so sure if it is a "true" lacquer or a derivative of a lacquer (enamel). I asked someone about it in another forum and they said "it's kinda both"? I know from what I have gathered so far it basically comes dull coat and you are expected to clear coat it fairly quickly after your final coat. I want to do this model as correctly as possible that is why I am going with this paint sight unseen so to speak. Number One, I really don't like clear coating, that and the fact I have very little experience with clear coat. Number Two, what do you use to primer this type paint? I understand because of Lacquers "hot" lay down properties you can ruin a paint job REAL fast if not adequately prepped. Given the price of the initial kit PLUS the cost and availability (0) of the trans kit "mess up" is not an option. So, in conclusion can anybody give me any guidance here, THANK YOU all so much for reading this!
  7. I used testors thinner, pretty thin mix i like it like skim milk density. Yes I did air brush it thanks, for the tips guys. Like I said its been awhile and I didn't want to rush this. I am familiar with the novus system and the LMG polishing cloth system, my preferred method.I guess I am too old school never tried lacquer or acrylics for that matter I have always been happy with the enamel results. I don't clear coat either, basically because other than that 37 above I stick with sports cars, imsa, endurance, trans am that sort of model. I dry polished that 37. LMG.
  8. 2 Days ago I laid down 4 coats of "off white" (model master classic, white 8 drops of testors 1033 brown) on a Fisher Chaparral 2F. It needs polished what is the safest amount of gas out time before I could begin the next phase. No rush its been 20 years since I doing this on a regular basis now I'm afraid becoming a "senior citizen" may have some pitfalls with it, that and not having really built anything in 20 years! Thanks! my last build....
