I was into modeling many years ago when I had a paper route to support my habit. I just decided to start up again and I really want to do it correct. I have been on line in search of a tips or tricks or instructions on getting back into the hobby without making too many mistakes. I have found nothing. I am into muscle cars that's what I want to start out with. I ordered a Buick GS 455. I really would like to get off to a good start. I will pay for any magazine that would help me get started, Your help would b greatly appreciated.
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
Hey guys, I'm Caleb, owner of American Classic Models I have an old sears brand single-action bottom-feed airbrush, and I'm thinking about using it. I have all the other essentials, compressor, regulator, braided hose, etc, and it seems to look a lot like some of the new badger models, its older so keep in mind its probably built to last. Those cheap plastic starter airbrushes from hobby lobby don't do the trick. Just need some opinions on whether or not its good to use. Of course it will need a good cleaning. The model number is 364-15506 I think. Thanks guys, any help would be appreciated!
