If you're really unhappy with that result you could always cure that with two coats of paint,one coat of black and one coat of clear:)

The "dipping" you are talking about is spraying different colors on top of water, dipping a model through the paint, letting the paint dry, smoothing paint with a light touch and a polishing cloth, clear coating and finish with polishing. The "film" being discussed is like a wrap, way out of scale, needs heat to conform. Ray, you may not care for the dipping method, you nailed it pretty good, and on a Stude. You guys should try it, you can come up with some really wild paint jobs.
