Scale I Build

  1. Hi all. I'm getting back into model car building again from taking a long break. I've been watching a lot of how to videos on lowering, airbrushing and building . This is all new to me I'm used to doing models with just brushing paint on. Lol. I just bought the paasche H set and the paasche VLS SET. I'm having a few problems first of all is I airbrush the model primer, paint but when I go to glue it together the glue takes the paint off. I'm using the Tamiya extra thin cement, testors liquid cement with the needle and also in the tube and also the clear parts cement. Also trying to do paint the interiors 2 different colors and brushing just doesn't look right I'd like to airbrush it but masking is hard and also the underbody. Like the frame would like to do in aluminum and the rest black any ideas of masking or a way to airbrush 2 tone interior or underbody. Also some of the kits I would like to lower and some raise. For example I'm doing the Nissan GT-R 35 pure edition kit and would like to lower it. Also doing the 67 Mickey Camarillo RS/SS 427. Any help would be appreciated or tips and tricks for gluing and making interior look nice. There are some photos to kind of show my set up and what I'm working on
  2. Hi! I would like to start (or try) to make a car model. I was wondering if you guys could help me with some of my questions? - What kind of paint shall I use? and how many types do I need to get a good finish? - Where do I buy these kits from? (live in Norway) - And what kind of tools I need for the job. (glue, brushes etc) I was looking at this, is this good? : http://www.modelcars.com/testors-model-car-spray-paint-set.html And does the manual say what kind of colors go where? Thanks for responses.
