My daughter was coloring and I saw all these markers and remembered someone using Sharpie for detailing. So I pulled out MCG photo etch valve cover and this is what I have. The first pic doesn't show the detail I'm asking about. The valve cover in the 2nd and 4th pic are mostly orange with Edelbrock and the out trim chrome. The 3rd and 5th all the raised detail is chrome. I need to clear this and can't decide which looks better. I've been looking at this entirely too long. Which one looks better? All comments are welcome.
Haven't gotten too far on this yet. All the parts have been trimmed, cleaned up and primered. I filled the holes in the hood where the kit hood pins would go so I can use some photo etch ones I have, I think they will look much better. I had been thinking about doing this for a while, but user Steve_L started a thread in the tips and tricks forum. I had some parts already primered and painted with gloss black. So i followed after him and clearcoated the black parts with lacquer, then used Alclad. It works killer. More depth and reflection. The headers and pipes are Alclad Stainless Steel. The wheels are Alclad Polished Aluminum. I ran out of chrome, so when I get that in I will paint the bumpers. Clearcoated clearcoated over Alclad black base Stainless Steel over the clear coat
Hi everyone, I have been building models for years but my skills continue to improve. I have found many of the tips in the forums to be great. Here is my question, I am building a Revell 68 Corvette roadster and see that there is a photo etch detail kit that I can purchase online. I have not used photo etch parts before so I am wondering if I was to use the photo etch parts would I sand down the plastic details on the car body, I.e., front and rear corvette emblems and the lettering on the hood, or keep the details and lettering and apply the etched part on top. I am just starting to prep the body for primer and thought I should ask the experts on this forum. Thanks Scott
