  2. pussiwillow added a post in a topic testors spray enamel, now what!?   

    that paint is worthless. i gave up with it. i got the laquers and they spray so much better, than any other paint ive used including hok, but i got so frustrated with enamels i rebuilt the badger my dad gave me, and im going to attempt to get the hang of the ###### thing this weekend

    ya ive noticed, im definitely not doing that again! oh well, no rush on this model so i might as well let it dry and see what i can do with it, if it fails ill soak it in the purple pond and use better paint

    thanks for the reply, that was the last thing i wanted to hear tho, and the can was heated up too, not that its starting to settle in its smoothing out, but it definitely in dire need of wet sanding no matter how you look at it, my hobby shops dont carry much variety in paints, is it safe to get it online and have it shipped to me here in arizona where its still up in the hundreds? i dont want to ruin the paint, or have it blow up on me haha

    testors spray enamel, now what!?
    got some ruby red metal flake, shook the hell out of the can the whole day to make sure that it is mixed real well, and that its not going to mess up on me, sprayed down a nice silver metal flake base coat, wanted it to sparkle like crazy, well i spray the red, there is like no metal flake in it at all, and its real rough looking and bumpy like there where chunks in it, never had any problems with hok sprays doing this to me, decided to see how testors worked, and im disapointed, how long does this take to dry so i can wet sand this thing down and hope i can get it to smooth out? only sprayed 2 light, even coats so far... thanks guys

    styrene, what to get?
    im just getting started into chopping and making custom models now, starting to get much better and was wondering what sizes and shapes of styrene do you guys use? for frame rails, roll cages, sheets for custom interior and scratch chasis making, pretty much everything i will need to do anything for model building, thank you for taking the time to help a fellow model builder

    also, what do you guys use to cut doors open, and to chop the tops, i cant get steady enough for a dremel

    ###### that looks awesome, i already messed it up, well kind of, just created alot more work for myself... i cut the frame apart and glued the front part to the firewall to make it how i wanted, and took the rear part and modified it to work, then im scratch building the rest... it would have been much easier your way... thanks for the reply tho looks good
  12. pussiwillow added a post in a topic channeling 32 ford 3 window coupe   

    well i decided to do the easiest thing that i could see, and last nite i cut the front of the frame and glued it to the firewall i have to trim the firewall so the transmission can sit flush, and the interiour peice as well, i hope i dont screw up, oh well i can always fix it like you said, thanks for the replies feel free to give me any other pointers as im a newb at chopping and customizing, but not at building
