Haven't build a model for over 55 years getting back into it now. looking for site on if I have to sand plastic or prime before I paint and what type of paint I need.
Thanks in advance tor the help from a retired guy getting back to building.
My technique is to always prime it before base coat and clear coat. I'm always worried the base coat may be too 'hot' and melt the surface of the plastic (more of an issue if you use automotive paints rather than hobby paints) and it helps it to stick to the plastic better.
Well sir, before I paint or I rinse off all sprues to clean off all that nasty release agents. Warm soapy water seems to do the trick. Next a light hobby primer on all the parts I want to paint. Then I hit it with the Testors paint, and lightly dust until I build up a nice shine, slowly add paint allow to dry, then hit again, until I dig the sheen. Then its time for clear coat, same procedure then im donesville! Note flats and satin, just paint to suit personal pantone needs....:nerd::grin2:
