    May be a stupid question, but...
    Has anyone tried to mix model glue with paint in order to get a colored glue that wouldn't stand out so much when gluing pieces together?

    Realized after I should have used semi-gloss, didn't have the heart to strip it and start over.

    64 A330 Dodge Ramchargers
    This is my first post in this forum. Kinda been holding off due to nervousness, been a long time between builds. First one in 40 years was last fall, this is the second. Building this as a street machine/bracket racer. First time using flocking, didn't turn out so good. Motor parts fit not the best. The paint looks splotchy in spots, but it is just the poor lighting in my basement.
    Any comments, hints or criticisms are whole heartdly welcome.

    Molded in color models
    I have 2 kits, a 1969 Yenko Camaro and a 1970-1/2 Camaro Z-28. The Yenko is molded in Yellow & the Z-28 in Orange. Does anyone leave them in the molded colors, with a clear coat?, or do you always primer & repaint?
     
    Thanks

    Paint finishing?
    Here is my question, correct order?
    Clean model, primer, paint, clear coat, wet sand, buff, pledge?
    or
    Clean model, primer, paint, pledge, wet sand, buff?
     
    Also, what would you use to buff after sanding??

    Purple Power & Die Cast
    I have a Die Cast model of the Old Navy truck they used to put in all of their stores. I would like to strip the paint & redo it as a custom truck. Just wondering if a bath in Purple Power will work on the die cast like is does in plastic models.

    I like the engine stand, paint job looks good too.

    I did the Hemi Cuda this year, took me since January. Don't get much time to work on them, only when the missus is working.

    My stash of kits for 2016, the 'Cuda and the trailer are done, the rest are raring to go. Currently I am working on the Color Me Gone 64 Dodge as a street car so it is not in the photos.

    Delta Ceramacoat paints
    I bought a bottle of Delta ceramacoat acrylic "Denim" to do the interior of the car I am currently working on. I can't seem to get the mixture correct for my airbrush, it's either too thin and runs off, or is too thick & just loads up on the seats. I am wondering if there is a standard mix ratio of paint to water, or is it still try till you get it right?
