    Which Paint
    Hi guys i about to begin painting on my first evert model as was wondering which paint do i use, i have no airbrush so was thinking i would use spary(rattle cans) on the body, interior and chasis, and hand pain the rest with emnamls.

    My question is which type of rattle cam paint do i use is it Acylic paint, which is the one i use.

    Also what do you mean by the term curbside?

    Hi all first of many silly questions i would expect. Can you tell me what is the best way to go regarding painting my model. Someone briefly metioned about it in my first post that i should use spray paint, i take it they mean small cans like the airesol variety. Or do you think i should go for one of those cheaper airbrushes i take they use the pots of paints, although this method is quite an expensive start i and dont know if i will keep the hobby up (depends how i get on ).

    Also when painting do i spray on primer fist (how many coats, and how long between coats), then spray paint, then do i use a clear finish spray.

    Glad you enjoyed your trip to England Fuji, i am actually for Devon which is about a 3-4hr drive from London so quite far. But to someone from the states it would'nt seem that far i guess.
