    German Revell instructions?
    So I bought the German Revell kit Mercedes GP Petronas MGp W01 (Mercedes Formula 1 car). I don't know what these instructions are telling me. In the paints page it says
    A - Aluminium
    B - Black Matt
    C - Silver
    D - Black gloss + Steel
    90% 10%
    E - Etc
    What is it telling me to do for the parts painted "D"?

    Primer?
    Do most of you prime before you paint? What primer do you use?

    thanks guys for all the tips as far as the airbrush it is the more expensive harbor freight. Onto the compressor, I am a college student that is basiclly living of my girlfriend's salary since I go to school 6.5 hours a day 6 days a week. I am going to school at WyoTech and next month I will be starting a Sunday (Yes 7 days a week and 8 hours on Sunday) class that is for airbrushing, custom paint, and pinstripping. The flyer I have says that the tuition cost will include an "airbrush, paint kits, and lots of supplies." I have not gotten in contact with the instructor yet to find out what all that entails. I will post pics of my current '71 hemi cuda as soon as I can find time.

    First of all I have built 3 models so far. As I am progressing i am realizing most of the models on this forum are 100x better than mine. the first of many questions is how do you do the very fine detailing (the lettering and numbering on the valve covers, grills, chrome trims, and such)? Do most of you airbrush? I bought a cheap one at harbor freight with an aerosal can to propel.
