  1. Thanks thats a great idea, ill give that a shot. Also could you tell me what you did to the transmission to give it that dirty look, ive been looking for a way to dirty up the engine and make it look more used.
  2. I finished painting the engine on one of my kits and wanted to know what I should spray the parts of the model with in order to protect the paint. Also would I want to spray this for example before applying weathering pigments or washes or after? Thanks
  3. Im looking for a tool to add depth to the roof and side scoops and also cut out the two sections of the hood. Any suggestions ?
  4. Would it be ok to airbrush vallejo model paints onto pieces primed with Tamiya liquid primer ? Ive heard people say to stick with the same brand for the most part when painting models (same brand paint and primer) but could I ignore that in this situation ?
  5. I realize plastic cement is meant to bond plastic on plastic so how should you glue together parts that are already painted? Ive heard people say to just scrap the paint off on areas to be bonded which im not completely opposed to but are their any other ways which are better ?
  6. Heres the complete engine assembly directions for a 1967 Shelby gt350
  7. Im building my first model car and wanted to know how you should go about painting the engine of the model. Personally, I was going to first prime all the pieces and then paint them with an airbrush before using glue (Tamiya plastic cement) to attach any of the pieces. So to clarify have zero assembly of the engine done until all the pieces are primed and painted so If pieces of the engine are different colors I wouldnt have to mask anything. Is this the right way to go ? Also would plastic cement not work as well on two pieces of plastic if they already have paint on them ?
