      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I'm using Tamiya surface primer and Tamiya silver, will it affect the final outcome of the metallic colour if i go over the silver?

I have followed 1:1 practice on my silver paint jobs. Use a basecoat of black under the silver and it will bring out the metallic. I have a can of tamiya silver that actually states must use a black basecoat to work with their silver metallic paint for proper color.

I used gloss black as the top coat with the silver leaf and it looks very clean.
