Just got the Kit, Decal and paints today. My first car, using AK extreme metals and a 2k Gloss.

So lets see how this goes 😉

Decals are Hobby boss, other than the decays it'll be a OOB build

Ted,

bulk buy popcorn and Cool-aid.............I'm going to push the boat out on this build.

Zero paints are UK based  and using mainly their product to prime, gloss black and the 2K gloss ( testing the 2K out here so I can adapy if need be, first time using an epoxy gloss) my base coat.............4000, 8000, 12000 grit micomeshs then Tamiya red, blue and white compounds for a maximum shine black .

Then a couple of coast of AK extreme metals chrome. Chrome on mirror shines so well because its on glass (ultra smooth,  hmm well it actually isn't, thats why newspaper rubbed on it makes it shime like a diamond in a goats ass, the black ink fills minute holes in its surface and makes it totally shine).
So I want to achieve the same thing on an ultra smooth surface (I'd have used zero chrome, but they are out of stock [frown] ).

You'll need tons of popcorn when you see it

Sanded the seams tonight, you can see from the black marks remaining, how little filler was needed and how well this kit fits together:

The filling on the back wings (half panels to our USA friends) is a known problem with this kit, bth the filling is actually minimum.


Photo's of models do tend to exadurate things and as you can see, the filler is minimal.


Though it did need it.

The bonnet (hood) of this cae is 60% pre done lines and meets the front, that you affix. I did this Monday and had to make seams good (Friday) for some mad reason 1 side went well but the other side stuttered (like hitting CA and none used) so now its a silly repair time:

Primed and based coated, these zero laquers took a bit of getting use to, but seem nice:

Next thing will be polish and 2K, it now looks orange peeled, hoping that settles as dries or I'll do a few coats of thinners hoping it settles it a bit. Followed instructions 20 psi 0.4 but found 18 psi 0.2 was better.

Hoping if I put my AK chrome on as near as I can get to a glass finish, it'll shine like a diamong in a goats ass (thanks Richard Rawlings 😉 )

Seems we are living the same problems ...
Had to completely sand off my C-47 yesterday... I hate that... you have to grip firmly the model to apply some strenght on the sanding and as usual brake some parts.

3 hours l;atger than my intention to spray with thinners (smoothed things nice).............now I'm looking at a true gloss black and reluctantant to 2K it.

I've never used 2K before, so I will 2K, just to practice............this is just the black base coat for my Chrome.............but the better I get this = better my chrome looks

I'll fully sand and polish the 2K, my thoughts are..............the nearer a galss surface I have will = a better mirror finish on my chrome

I've lways done aircraft with matt paints, Humbrol, Vallejo and Tamiya, airbrushing for last 2 years, with matt end result

This build is my first full gloss build, New products (laquers) and end finish.......this model creates horrible vortex's so things gone wrong:

IMG_4426.jpg  IMG_4427.jpg




I can fix this with sanding np, just it's the problems I'm encountering with new project. That said I'm totally enjoying this build
