    If you are painting on a concrete floor , wet the floor down before you spray . Plastic walls , booths , etc , already have an electro static charge built in . The slightest movement resets it . Carpeted floors are also a big no no in a spray area . Move your work table away from your painting area also ......

    Stating that enamels take many days to cure when cut with cheap lacquer thinner is patently false ! I cleared three bodies yesterday morning and wet sanded them out this morning . That's within a 24 hour period .........

    Booth temperature was 68 degrees with low humidity . Generally speaking , a one to three day flashout period is to be expected when using a cheap lacquer thinner to cut the enamels with .

    I agree that the names should not be shown also . However , the secret is that there are no secrets .... Someone knows whose builds belong to what builder and word spreads like wildfire amongst the brethren . Also , builders who have a certain style will have their models easily recognized as to whom they belong to .

    Simply remove the hood and set it next to your model . If you had your model in the street machine class , for example , you were actually presenting a curbside , rather than a street machine per se . Detail under the hood of your fellow contestants models kicked your butt ....

    For the 1/2 ounce bottles , I go two parts paint to one part cheap lacquer thinner . The 1/4 ounce bottles , standard colors which are thicker , I go 50 / 50 on the mix . 1/4 ounce metallics and pearls , revert back to the 2 to 1 ratio .

    There is nothing on this planet that could be considered perfection ....
    That being said , the NNL East show is run like the proverbial Swiss watch and comes close . Kathie and I would like to thank Tom and his crew for putting on an excellent show once again . Wonderful to see and hang out with old friends , my adopted " kids " , and meeting and making new friends . A special thank you to Lisa Laski for arranging the trip for Art and to finally getting to meet a true hell on wheels modeler !
    A special thank you to John Papp for the hourly countdown till show time ..... Lmao !

    The technique works with the H too ... You just need to learn how to use it ......

    Saw this up close and personal on Friday night . In a word .... Gorgeous ! I'll be purchasing quite a few of these and painting even more of them !

    Graingers sells inline moisture and oil traps . I would suggest a regulator and a gauge close to your airbrush hose also for convenience sake .

    To answer your question ....
    Overall the flash is not bad at all , nor are the mold lines . With a little patience and some kit bashing , this kit produces an excellent build .
