    1957 Chevy street racer
    My first completed build for several months due to relocation to a new city.  It's based on the 1990's issue of the AMT street machine version.  Paint is Tamiya German Grey, the induction set up is from the Stacey David Rat Roaster and the aluminium front wheels came from Pro Track

    Gulf McLaren
    This is the Fujimi version, painted with Tamiya orange and dark gunmetal. I managed to find a can of auto paint that is remarkably close to Gulf blue. Built entirely out of box for our recent club theme night. On to the pics....

    Nice work Jim, really suits that colour
  8. maltsr added a post in a topic Paint problem   

    I've had this happen several times, and I almost exclusively use Tamiya paint. The paint seems to 'orientate' itself with the swirl marks in the raw plastic. Not sure of a solution, but i have tried these two methods with varying degrees of success:

    1) Try building up the paint in mist coats. This sometimes solves the problem, but beware heavy clear coats afterwards.

    2) Strip the paint from a smaller part, and sand the raw pastic with fine sandpaper. Repeat the painting process (light coats) and see if this works. If it does, the good news is you have solved the problem - bad news, you have to repeat on all the other parts .

    Good luck

    Thanks everyone.

    Mike, the paint is Duplicolor Acid Rush, a Ford colour here in New Zealand.
