Ghost busters ECTO1 in 24Hrs

Postby Mustang » Sun Mar 30, 2014 4:07 pm

I brought this as a little test.

I wanted to build a model inside 24hrs and see what the finished kit would look like. So I found this on :evil:bay for £10

Image

So heres how it worked out, I started this yesterday about 2pm.

All the parts that needed primer have been primed with white paint and left in the spray booth with the lights on to dry them quicker.

Once they where dry about 1hr. I then sprayed the main parts with white car paint, again left in the booth to dry.

This morning, this is how far I got yesterday.

Painted with Vallejo paints and Tamiya silver paint. Plus the use of Klear mixed in with the paints to help them dry quicker and level out.

Well done, top job you've done there :clap: :clap: K posted
I notice you mixed Klear into your paint, I guess this is the pledge Klear, does it make a lot of difference?

Hi. Yes it's the Pledge Klear I use a mix of this with purified water in a small bottle with a peppeit lid.

I find that by doing this it helps in a couple of ways.

1, the Klear helps give the paint a harder finish so it's not so easy to come of when touched.
2, helps the paint get a nice level when it's drying and drys a bit faster.
3, plus you not need so much paint.
4, when using gold and silver paint which I find are a lot thicker then the others, I can get a better thiner coat.

not my cup of tea but a nice job - even if it took less time than me deciding what colour to use on a certain car...
