The test model.
the bits and pieces
So painting the model is the most important part of the model and being a newbie i had a feeling i'd cock this up and true to my word i totally did hahah.
cleaning and spraying primer was fine and went without a hitch. when it came to applying paint.. my god i fucked it bad! i was using a metallic red which kinda resembles a candy apple red so that makes things tough already. the next problem is that you should do light coats and take your time. i didnt do any of that! so the body came out ok. but the front/rear bars and bonnet didnt turn out so great and a mini cyclone helped make things worst! i wasted a whole can trying to fix it but that didnt help much :(
its currently drying and im going to press forward. the valuable lessons i've learnt so far
- Clean and prep the body very well
- Dont spray thick coats, take your time and dont pick a windy ass day to spraypaint
- Brake fluid is awesome for stripping paint
- Dont for the love of god use metallic paint if its your first time
i'm pretty sure this is going to be a disaster LOL
