I have an older open, but not built yet one... I picked it up at my old hobby center; they use to get old kits in from buying people's collections. How much is that one there? - never mind i zoomed in on the pic!

Time to get back to modeling after remodeling. It only took me 6 weeks to do the kitchen.

Mixed black with gold metallic for the exhaust manifolds. Turned out pretty good. Now to paint the body. Still mastering the airbrush though.

'85 Camaro Z-28 finally complete. I'm happy with how it turned out for the most part. Next up.... the '69 Camaro Z-28.

Hello everyone. I have posted anything in a while. Just wanted to pop-in and say Hi. Between work, helping my daughter with homework, and re-doing my kitchen, I haven't had much time to work on my models. Once I get my workshop cleaned up, I will be back at it.

Airbrushing and Finishing Techniques  - 
 
HELP!!! Trying to airbrush the body on the '85 Camaro with really bad results. A plastic primer seemscto be in order. I'm spraying using Wicked Colors.

I personally have never used that brand of paint before, but yes, primering the body is key to a great finnish. After a few coats, take your sandpaper and knock it down a bit using a drop of dish soap in some warm water. (Go for the lighter grit) Dont sand to hard or you will have to break the primer out again. What your doing is taking the "eggshell" look off the primer before your base color coat. There are alot of defects on bare plastic that will bleed through no matter how dark your paint is. Primer hides these defects. Goodluck #James. I would recommend the same type primer for same type paint. When airbrushing, alot of light coats are better than one heavy coat, Try not to hide or destroy detail while painting or sanding as this is very easy to do. I hope these tips help you out. Peace.

After much thinking, I have decided on the colors for the Camaros. The 1985 is being painted Crimson red, and the 1969 win be pearlized cobalt blue. Both from wicked.
