time to cut the windows now and clean up the top edge that sits in the roof. not sure what glue to use to stick these in with as super glue will just cloud the plastic and poly glue needs a clean surface. :think:

Top notch paint work Casper.
Looking most excellent.

Pssst - use PVA to fix the windows, won't harm the paintwork or clear parts, fills small gaps and best of all water washes away boo boos.

Great tip Morrigan thank you i will try that later :) :D
and thank you all for all your kind coments :D
I have been trying to do the chrome strip down the sides of the body but keep getting a fuzzy edge from the masking tape.I may leave it though as its not to bad and i really want to get the roof part done above the back seat. Then it,s just the heater lights etc.
:?: may i ask for tips on the best way to paint the light clusters as they are clear trans parts. perhaps paint in a diluted wash to the back before fitting. :think:

Hi Casp whilst there are paints available to do the job, they might be a bit OTT for these size of builds - Your current thinking seems sound to me ! :) :)

A wash of thinned paint will work fine or use transparent red and orange paints. Applying a coat of chrome silver first will make a world of difference
Sneaky trick - when I'm painting a small part, especially transparent ones I dip the part in the paint rather than attempt to brush paint it, then I touch the corner of the part with a cotton bud or tissue to soak up excess paint. Works a treat for getting tidy yellow tips on props too!

thanks again for some great advice :D
well i didn't like the silver chrome lines down the side of the car and bonnet so i removed them and did them in Bare metal and they look a lot better now. just used chrome paint around the front light clusters and on the bumper. The Bare metal didn't want to stick very well so i used a size glue first like on the Cat build, I find it sticks a lot better that way.

This Xmas comp is really brilliant Mark, as there are so many different things that I'm certainly learning and also from people on different parts of the forum, that if I just stuck (no :superlglue: included) to the DB5 part of the forum ! :D :D
