Really nice colour there, a great deep shine too. From your pictures it looks like you're painting outside, is the cold not making it difficult?

thanks guys... i thought it was the temp outside but i went over to my work and tryed to paint it in my spray bay and the same thing happened still... so i am kinda stumped as to why its doing it... i did have the same problem with my merc kit but that happened all over... this is just on the doors, hood and boot... but i will slowly carry on until i get it sorted lol

Everything I see looks great. Beautiful paint.

I would say that most experienced modelers on this forum recommend painting all body parts at the same time and in the same way. Don't know if you did that or not, but your posts indicate you painted them separately at different times.

I did paint them all together at first because i also read that on here. But i still got the crazing on them parts but not the body... but thanks for the advice and the comment buddy :)
