You are definitely the Roth miester. I have just looked at all your builds and all are outstanding. I have all the books about Big Daddy Ed Roth and at one time all the Roth kits. If I ever get the Beatnik Bandit built and it looks remotely like yours, I will be very happy

Hi Nick, the pearl was painted over ModelMaster white primer. Pactra pearls are acrylic paint (water based) so they are friendly to most primers and bare plastic. I normally use a 0.3 needle airbrush, crank the pressure up to 60 psi and spray the paint neat from the container.
