Revell 1964 Impala

Recommended Posts

I thought I would take advantage of the little warmer weather here in Maryland this week since I've been working what seems like non-stop and try and get my 64 Impala painted. Primed with Tamiya Gray Primer and then a couple coats of Tamiya Maroon. Did go as well as I had hoped. Paint ran off high spots and panel seams. Guess I'll have to wait the cooler weather out and scuff and repaint. I like the color though. I started a 50 Oldsmobile with this color but after the first coat it looked like it was going to be purple looking but i was determined to see this one through for the color.

Overall the finish looks nice and smooth.

I agree, that top is perfect. Great color and finish

So why would the paint draw away from the seams? Too thin of paint? Or is there a sharp edge like flash that needs to be sanded smooth?
