Ferrari 246 GT Dino - Fujimi - 1/24


Recommended Posts

I tackled the mold lines with a tip I got on Facebook.

Sanded the area again.

Put extra thin cement over where the lines were. And they popped up again.

Let it dry, and then sanded again. Now they seem to be gone forever.

Even if they pop up after my first opaque coat of kolor, the fact that i sand between every coat with 2000grit, it disappears after my second of four coats.

Nice to know that!

I also sand between coats of paint.

First coat of paint. Dry coat.

IMG_20210401_155743.jpg.0993e170853268c32f731d9c666f4651.jpg

Another dry coat. This time with more coverage.

Sanded with 3000 sponge. Then washed.

After it dries, I'll do the wet coats.

Ran into some trouble on the varnish wet coats.

I think I applied the second wet coat too early. The instructions say you must give 5minutes between each coat. 

Got wrinkles:

Had to let it dry 24hours and sanded everything with 1200 grit.

That's a bummer. The paint was going so well. Looks like you've got a handle on it now, though.

Yes. Luckily the paint wasn't affected; only the varnish.

Applied more varnish and then polished.

First I sanded down to 3000 grit until almost all shiny spots were gone.

Then polished with compounds.

Looking good😎

I love this kit, and you’re doing a great job on it. The paint has come out first class!

Thanks!

The paint looks fantastic. Nice recovery.

And I found out what I did wrong. The second coat was too heavy. When this happens, the surface dries faster then the thick wet layer and then wrinkles.

Now it's trim time.

To mask the trim, I start with Fine strips of tape.IMG_20210410_170747.thumb.jpg.b0e205748d9f3adb598e5a5306c87c62.jpg

I'll let it dry before painting the chrome.
