    Help, I stripped my paintjob 3 times
    To all modeling gurus, please help...

    I primed the body using tamita white primer, and it looks good.
    I decanted tamiya ts paint and waited at least 6 hours before i load it in my airbrush..

    1st coat - mist coat (looks and feel a little grainy)
    2nd coat - mist coat (looks and feel a little grainy)
    3rd coat - wet coat
    4th coat - wet coat

    But evertime I shoot the wet coat, I always got this "tiny craters" somewhat like the surface of the moon..
    Where am I doing wrong? Can anybody enlighted me? Tried it 3x already.. Stripped it 3 times too..

    Another question, I planned to apply futures and then apply decals, after that will shoot urethane. Is urethane over futures safe?

    Thanks guys.

    To sand or not to sand, Help...
    To all modeling experts out there,

    Do you have to sand "very minor" imperfection, i.e.: orange peel on the base coat (color coat) before applying clear coats?
    or just shoot the clear coats over it and sand it down and buff after that?

    I am using rattle can lacquer base spray paint, decanted and then airbrush onto the model.



    Your answer is greatly appreciated. Thanks
