Hello guys!!

First of all, I am so sorry because I am from Spain and I am learning English. My English is so bad and I am beginning with model cars...

But I found that web and I got very excited because there are a lot of wonderful workers in that website..

This is my second car and I want to more carefully with that.

I found a very Good offer the other day. It was a box with PORSCHE 959 of Tamiya for 20!!!!

I have taken photos but I don't still know how to load them inthat web ...I will investigate...jajaja

I began to Polish the exterior body of the car and I have found the first problem...I think the Polish was too thick and I screwed the plastic a little...

Could someone give me some advise?

Thank you and sorry for my English!!

Welcome to the forum and yes, your English is fine. But we'll need to see pictures to answer your question.

By the way, here's what my 959 looked like:

Hi again!!!

Thank you so much for your words...jeje I'm working very hard with my English...

Chilyb1 - Your model car is very nice. I hope mine will be like yours...jejeje

i've found how to upload photos...jeje

You will see my problem very clearly:

I began to polish the intern part because i WASN'T VERY SURE and now i'm a little afraid to begin with the exterior part (the line's mold).
I show you my tools...
i THINK i need a little polishment and I will go to buy that next weekend.
iF YOU COULD GIVE SOME ADVICE i WOULD BE VERY HAPPY!!JAJA

Jonatan, It looks like your doing things right so far, but you should probably start with a finer grade of sandpaper on the outside. I would suggest 320 or 400 grit wet/dry paper, and use it wet. After your first coat of primer, switch to 600.

Hi guys!!!

I'm so sorry because I've been during a looooooong time without to work in my beautiful car...

I have been very busy and it has been impossible for my. Now, one week ago, i BEGAN AGAIN AND I want your opinion.

I have began with the engine and I have painted with red the up part but the result hasn't been what I was looking for. Maybe it was because the paint is not the correct. (you can see the paint on the attachment images).

Moreover, I have two questions more:

1) I have used a primer spray. I thought it was white but it was transparent!!! I don't know if it is good because I can't see the mistakes on the pieces.

2) the secons question is: How do you solve the join of pieces? I have join two pieces (red and alluminium) but the union is very bad, i think. Do you use some putty tamiya or somthing like that?

Thank you so much to read and comment!!!

Hi guys!!

I am here again. I have been working on my Porsche and I want to show you. First of all, I am near to finish the engine, I have painted the most important pieces and I have added three wires (because i think it does a better look).

I have had a problem and I don't know how to solve that. I hpe you could help me. The first thing I did it was to paint with spray black all the pieces and, do you see the lateral piece in black (when it is said "PORSCHE")? I painted after that in aluminium and I have lost almost all the detail in that place (see the picture with the result).

Moreover, I have prepared the brakes. The disk is black and the break is red. I think that wasn't the real color on the car but i haven't found any picture about that.

Well, This is all for today. Maybe in a short time I will show you more.

Obviously, thank to comment and, please, say me anything i could improve ok??

With my English or with my car!!!!

See you soon!!

Well, guys!!

I am so sorry!! I think you have been waiting for me during a looooooog time.... Don't worry, I am here again!!! (jajaja, I am kidding!)

Well, now I hope my English is better, because I have been working very hard... oK, begin the show...

I have mounted the entire Engine, I have painted all pieces and I have used two tecniques I had never used before, dirt with black and mark with white.

I have used white, blue, yellow and red to paint the little combustion warehouse, I hope you like that...

Now I am working with the interior part. I want to use something to do more realistic the floor. If some of you have some idea...

I have dirtied the underneath of the car. And one good sorprise was the wheels revolve!!!!!

tHANKS FOR READING!!!!
