General Usage 05/10/2017
rlucky73721 added a topic in General1 problem & 1 question & 1 complimenthi,
my 1 problem is that i painted my body and my hood saprately.
the hood is noticably darker.
is there an easy fix for this as i love my paint jobs.
my question is
when working on smaller parts and the under side of the car do i still need the laquer?
will paint smudge when i handle the parts to glue them in their final resting places?
also the idea of putting small amounts of glue on the work area and using a tooth pick to apply glue works better then i could have imagined.
cant remember who told me that but thanks!

rlucky73721 added a topic in Generalunidentified carbshi, i want to do an engine swap on my 74 vega and i found this engine out of a jada i didnt want any longer.
my question is what type of carburators are those?
are they real or just fictional?
it only matter cause i dont want fake parts on this car.
also, i wanted to do some searching but i have no idea what these are called or where to find info on them. i was on google for hours trying to mix and match key words but i have nothing to show for it.
the car is a masito so its kinda to scale 1/24 that will recieve this engine.

im am this guy 1st model ever
well i was told to treat each piece as its own model and i have really taking that to heart as in found an awesome 427 69 camaro b-motion.
i painted the body with tips from Jody who emailed me and the body looks fantastic! (thanks jody!)
my 1st issue was the fact that i was painting on a chair rather then elevating the body up (using a small pop can & setting the model on top for painting helped a ton & please let me know if there is even a better way) while painting.
also this time around i washed the parts and scuffed the body and hood.
now im on the smaller parts.
my 1st set of questions are,
is there a way to elevate the backs of wheels and engine parts for painting? (if not how do you do it so they dont dry to the table or box or what ever you paint them on?)
do you still scuff and 3-5 coat small parts like the engine and back of wheels and such? (clear coat?)
last time i used glue from a tube and applied directly to the piece. i saw a video on you tube that sticking the top of a tooth pick in the tube was all you needed. is this true? (glus was also an issuse for my last disaster)
thanks in advance!
i also figured id post any future question in this thread rather then spam up your forums with my 1 build here.
ps. for those who are intrested, id love to show off some pics of how this model is comming along and a comparison side by side with my 1st attempt at building skill 2 models. so can anyone give me any advice on how to light my models for the best detail in pic quality?
looked foreward to your mentorship!
