I have read some of the posts in this thread but I didn't see if you primered the spoon before spraying the Enamel paint/lacquer thinner. Lacquer/thinner will eat (craze) plastic. I would suggest lacquer thinner with lacquer paint only. Enamel and lacquer don't mix well. Don't mix different products; It's asking for trouble. They say you don't need primer with the new synthetic lacquer but I primer no matter what kind of paint I use. Better safe than sorry. Makes flaws in the body stand out so they can be fixed before finish paint.
Been wanting to duplicate in scale the 4 bay Garage I worked in in the mid 60's. It will be no where as detailed as this one. Love the lift. The lighting is cool. Brickwork is great as is the plumbing.
Don't know why but I feel like working on my Dio Project a little tonight. It's all your fault. LOL
I did the math...I have been building model cars for 55 years. My first was a 191? Franklin Touring Car by Gowlin (sp) I think.
Next was a customized JoHan Chrysler. Bodywork done with plaster of paris----cracked all to hello as you can guess. when I went into the USAF I had a cube mate that built contest models. I was really hooked then. layed off for a few years till my kids got old enough to watch me Help them build. One of my sons is an avid model builder now. guess something rubbed ogg.
