    You definitely need to bring your A game when tackling EM kits but they are so worth it. I must have 4/5 built and about 4/5 waiting. Every one of them has been a test but I have passed them all. I have to finish my white on white Countach this year. Perhaps I'll drag it out this weekend and see where I left off.....................

    My pleasure. I use that technique quite a bit to clean up lines. I did the headlight buckets on my Reher Morrison car the first time I realized that ammonia removes Acrylic paint. i got super tight separation and those buckets look good. I use it for panel lines as well. I also used this technique for the blue/white seats in my Malco Gasser mustang. By using Duplicolor enamel for the white base i was able to use Tamiya metallic blue for the blue tuck and roll for a very clean appearance.
     
     
    Go with what works, find new ways of doing things. Keep on truckin.

    How did you do it Chris? It looks good.

    I tend to get a good pic of what I'm working on and custom mix the shade myself.
     
    Those MM paints are OK, but man are they thick!

    Chris, what I would do for a truly sharp line that is also easy is this.
     Overfill the grill with Acrylic paint and then wipe away with a tightly balled rag with a 50/50 solution of water/ammonia.
     
     
    It'll be straight and perfect.

    I always considered these AMT cartoon kits to be clunky when compared to Dave Deal and T Daniel kits.
     
    However, in this case I am digging it.
