    flat colors are easier to apply - i do agree.  that truck is bad ass!!  what do you do for touch ups' though?  for instance if you are masking and then remove the tape and need to hit a very small area with a brush, it will be flat and it wont look right against gloss. maybe i'm reading into to much.  maybe i will try it that way.  by the way, do you airbrush or use cans?? great info - Thanks!!

    matte finish paint to gloss?
    Hi, sorry if this was discussed here before, but i was wondering if there was anyway to make a testors enamel matte finish paint to a gloss finish?  The first thing that comes to mind is to add a gloss enamel clear coat to the matte paint, but im just not sure if that would work. Any ideas??  Thank-you for a great forum!  John

    AMT 1949 Mercury Club Coupe Color question
    Hi,  I've started an amt 1949 Mercury Club coupe and notice there is no numbers next to the part that points to a color on a "paint key" or  chart. Other than the stock upholstery color that could be chosen in 1949 for the seats and the body color, there is no color suggestions for the engine, under carriage, mufflers etc etc.  I don't think i'm missing any paper work.  has any one built this model and noticed this?? is this common?? What to do?  Should I just wing it. I really like sticking with the actual stock colors that came with the car. Any suggestions??   Thanks, John

    ok i think i understand. So basically an "acrylic enamel" or "acrylic lacquer" paint is still basically an enamel and a lacquer paint. So only when a paint is a pure acrylic and the enamel or lacquer designation is not attached to it, can it be safe to assume its water or alcohol clean-up.

    paint confusion.
    can someone explain what the difference is between Acrylic, acrylic enamel and acrylic lacquer? Are they all water based, can they all be thinned and cleaned with water? I always thought enamel meant "oil based" and lacquer meant "lacquer based?

    can you post pics of your Acrylic painted models? Thanks!
    Would love to see some hobbiests acrylic painted models. Up to now i've only used enamels when painting my models. Some how in my mind you just won't get the same results with acrylic vs. enamels paint. Would love to see some nice acrylic builds to compare. I love the idea of water clean up!! Thanks!

    water slide decals for stock 1/25th scale
    Hi, i was wondering if anyone makes water slide decals for 1/25th scale models. i'm currently finishing up a 69 pontiac gto judge and sanded down the raised GTO lettering on both sides near the doors. The reason i did this was because i remember donn yost mentioning that it was too small to BMF and that slide decals were available for these type of details. I forgot who he mentioned sold this type of thing. does anyone know?? thanks in advance.
