Monogram 1950 ford F1


Recommended Posts

this kit was started a while ago. Unfortunately, the paint was ruined after applying the clear coat. I had to strip the paint yesterday and went back to stage 1. Once the paint is cured I will spray the clear again.

Interesting looking color. What did you use? I'm a big fan of this kit and have built a couple. This build makes me want to do another one. 

I am using Humbrol enamel matt colours. Clear gloss will follow.

What happened with the clear first time around?  

Lacquer clear very often won’t play nice with enamels, just in case you weren’t aware…

I sprayed the clear using a spray can. The nozzle was too wide. The surface was very rough when I tried to increase the distance. Spraying from a close distance resulted in a very thick layer. The paint ran at several places. I had a similarly bad experience with automotive paint repair cans of the same manufacturer. The quality is OK but the nozzles are intended for real cars not small models.

This time only decanted paint.

Regards

Hallo Wallid, das geht ja gut voran. Hast du schon mal überlegt, es mit Molotow-Chromstiften für die Bettschienen zu versuchen? Das erfordert zwar immer noch etwas Abkleben, ist aber vielleicht nicht so schwierig. 

Hier ist ein Bild von einem, an dem ich das ausprobiert habe.

Am besten,

Burned through the paint after repainting another burned through spot. So I will strip the hood.... Again. I am starting to believe this kit was made 6th of June at 6:00 am. The ugly point is I ran out of paint and had to buy an extra tin. The paint shades are not identical 😭

Now it is the time to return to the interior. Apart from the impossible to paint gauges, I am generally satisfied (which is a rare feeling). If I am going to build it again, I would choose different shades of grey to avoid the monotony I ended up with. I still have two kits in my inventory, but they will not be built soon. I had enough frustration with is one.
