Pretty good job. You forgot to state one thing. Shake the can occasionally to keep the paint mixed evenly. It doesn't matter what kind of paint you use, or the temperature, ALWAYS keep your spray paint shaken, to keep it mixed. I've been doing this for over 40 years. Take my word for it. Otherwise, great job! Good recommendations! I also mask off the inside, to keep from overspray. Great job! Thank you! PS-glad to see you using an airbox, and gloves. Hopefully a mask too...always good to pass on good tips. Thanks again!

I am not comfortable with those drying times. I prefer to have it more cured before moving forward. Spray cans tend to dump the paint out thick and higher amounts of lacquer extend curing times since the paint dries from the inside out. If this was being done with an airbrush, the drying times would be a little more acceptable to me. Nice job though. Keep up the good work.
pg1171 (8 days ago)
I, personally, prefer a longer drying time, just to be safe. I would rather wait a whole day or two, to make sure that the paint is completely set. This doesn't work if you are on a limited schedule, but for me it works fine. Unless you are running late for a contest, I don't see the reason for the rush. I actually have one car that has been drying for over 2 years...LOL! It should be about ready to finish by now! Need to get my butt back in gear and get started back on it! Happy modelling!

Just found this on youtube. Really brings back memories. Used, then, little bottles of paints or a set. I still have some scale plastic models from childhood. AMT Revell... Still in box, needing to be assembled. Big deal with kids in the 60s
pg1171 (8 days ago)
OMG! I remember those! I probably had a few. I started building around 6 or 7 yo. That was about 1970-71. I remember all of the old AMT, Revelle, Monogram, Aurora, MPC, Lindberg, and a couple others. I started out on what I think were MPC Waterline WWII snap together, ships. I wish those were still around. They were simple and still looked good, even without paint. One of my first painted models was an old Frankenstien/Graveyard model. Painted the grass on the grave plain green, and the headstone and foot markers were silver. Don't know what I was thinking....LOL! Aparently I wasn't going for accuracy at such a young age. Nowdays I'm all for being as accurate as possible, when I get into the mood to build something...smh...

Just go slow, and take your time. You aren't in a race. If it doesn't look right to you, it's not right. Do it the way that YOU want it. That's what makes it yours. One of a kind. Don't rush. That is the most important part. You don't always have to follow the instructions exactly. Unless you are trying for a perfect re-creation. I hardly follow the painting instructions, unless I'm recreating something, and then only if it's correct. Use your references. Between your references, and aftermarket decals, you can create something truly unique! Happy modelling!

Nice job. I use Automotive Lacquers. I prefer Dupli-Color Automotive Touch Up and Primer in Rattle Cans for most builds. I built two Conspiracy Theory Movie (1994 Chevy Caprice)Taxis. I used "AutomotiveTouchup" (https://www.automotivetouchup.com) Firebird Yellow Lacquer. The same used on GM Taxis. When I built the AMT reissue of the Piranha "Super Spy Car", I got the Right Color from them too. It's not the cheapest way to go, but it is the right way. That is... If your going for realism and can't get a Brand New Airbrush to work for longer than three seconds.

Is there a video on fixing up paint build up? I applied paint on the wheels but went too thick. :(
pg1171 (8 days ago)
ALWAYS be light with your paint. You can always add an extra layer, but removing it is a whole lot harder...and make sure you keep your spray paint, and bottle paint also, mixed. Stop spraying, give it a few shakes, and then continue. It will assure an even color. And keep it at room temperature. Paint that has gotten cold, especially if left outside in cold weather, can go 'bad'. It can bubble, or at worst, look like it has 'veins' in it. Plus, it get's slightly tacky, and is harder to remove. I live in Alabama. We have humid weather, sometimes cold winter, and it is terrible on spray paint, especially model paint. I don't have a dedicated spray area, so most of the time, I have to build models in the warmer months, and choose a day when the humidity isn't too high. If you are painting plated wheels, make sure that you un-plate them first. Just do that by first soaking them in ammonia for about 24 hours. Best I remember. That should remove any chrome plating. They should be chrome free, but still have a gloss. Apply a light coat of primer, then your final color. Your first color coat should be a light mist. Not heavy. Your second coat should take care of fully covering. Remember, always be sparing with your coverage. You have to think scale. The thinner the coat the better. Full color, but light coverage. It takes a little practice. The results are great! That should fix your wheel painting problem! Happy modelling!

Must be a very important question to mention 2 times that its important. I dont have an exact awnser as i have never used duplicolor. Maybe they have plastic primer or something.

Kyle Sagun (11 months ago)
Hey Tom, I know this is an old video but I have a question. A while back during summer I tried to do an initial d AE86, yet the paint was really weird. The white layed down perfectly and shiny, the matte black layed down well but kindve looked a bit satin, and then the gloss black just was bubbly and did not work with the masking at all and seeped through everything. I have a feeling it was the can’s fault because I later used it on a civic model and the same happened. I think the paint may be too thin causing it to run more than normal and I believe the same happened not long ago on a Supra I was working on... (Tamiya spray cans for all, no primer on AE86, but primer on Supra)
pg1171 (8 days ago)
It could have a little too thick, old paint, or cold paint. Make sure you go sparingly with the spray. Make sure it hasn't been sitting around for too long of a time, maybe 2 years. If you have paint that old, you aren't building enough! Make sure that it's at room temperature. Paint that has gotten a little too cool can, at times, bubble. Always make sure that it is well shaken and mixed. Always be light with the paint. You can always add a layer. It's much harder to remove it and start over. Good painting!
Jame (6 months ago)
The Scalemodeling Channel I have to agree... I’ve recently started using spray cans to paint my models, and every time that the paint bubbled or cracked, it was because I was using too much paint which made it go on way too thick. Now when I go to paint the body of my cars, I rewatch this video, along with the other two in the series (the prep and prime and the clear coat videos) just to watch how you apply the paint. Whenever I do that, my paint jobs come out just the way I want them. I have to thank you for these videos. They’re very informative, to the point, and have helped out me quite a bit.

Ken Clements (1 year ago)
Ever time I spray a car body I end up with pieces of dirt or lint in the paint regardless of how hard I try to keep everything clean. I even wash the spray cans before using them. Once I finish painting I find pieces of something in the paint. Frustrating and it really puts me off building car models.
Ken Clements the better question is. Where do they not come from. Everything is dust.
Ken Clements (1 year ago)
Thanks for the reply. I get to use a small pro paint booth with good exhaust. I make sure the entire booth is clean and I wipe down the stand with a lint free cloth. Still have pieces of something sitting on the body once I finish painting. I figure that the paint is creating a positive charge as it leaves the nozzle and the car body becomes a negative surface which attracts the pieces of crud that appear. The question is, where do they come from?
Ken Clements keep in mind. Its not just a clean model. The areau arround it needs to be clean aswell. A spray booth helps. And maybe even a container over the body while its drying. Though even actual 1:1 car painters have dust in the paint. A perfect paintjob is pretty much imposible

I bought a metalic Silver spray can paint from a store. When I tried it on a spare bumper it came out nice and smoth. But whrn I lainted the body of the car it came out very matte. Is this because of overspray? It also peels of very easly.. I kinda messesd up...How is thia fixable? Will it be shiny again if I put some clear coat on it?

Hey, me again😔 This time, painting the red on the car. The result was average, some places like the gap between the front bumper and the lights, bottom part of skirt didnt get the colour Also, the paint is a bit uneven. The rear has a big different comparing to the roof. What should I do?! This time I dont wanna scrap it off completely and redo everything. I am wondering should i paint one more layer which fullfill the missings? But I afraid that i will make it even more uneven and fuck up the whole thing. I am also thinking that should i just move on? And clear coat it? I am lost again... i need some help😔 I hope u read it, and if you do, sorry for asking so many questions as this is my first time painting scale model.
Brian.K (1 year ago)
The Scalemodeling Channel thanks dude. Thanks so much for the reply😍😍
Just apply another coat, with one coat its not covered, it maybe even needs 3 in total or even 4 who knows. Just apply another light coat, if its still not ok, do it again. Then it should be fine and your ready for clear.

I was a little surprised at the relatively short bursts of laying down color as opposed to long, even coats. For a while I had the good fortune of having a pro painter friend do my cars. That option is no longer available to me and I'm starting up my hobby again by having to go to spray cans, so that's why I've been paying close attention to your videos.
Charles Ward (1 year ago)
what aout the emblem you sanded off. how do you sand around those if you wanted to keep it. Then what about painting the emblem. Do you use photo etch on any bodies
If you want to keep them, sand arround it. You could use PE, but that is not easy to get right. I preffer either the decals or 3d Emblems from after market suppliers like hobby design.

Try Hobby Point at Bras Basah. That aside, if youre doing two tone color, try spraying a thin layer of clear coat after you masked before spraying the 2nd color you want. This gives a crisp separation between the colors.... and also to avoid bleeding

HI The Scalemodeller :) I'm recently after spraying my Skyline R33 however I have a little problem. After painting i noticed that some places on the body I have some strange little spots. I doesn't look like dust. It is more like air bubbles. It makes terrible look on the body. Are you able to advise me what to do with it? Should I sand it down and then paint the body again, or just proceed with clear and then polishing with 2500 grit sand paper should do the job? Is there any other way to contact you than youtube?

MoD1982 (2 years ago)
I personally use a big cardboard box with a couple of the sides cut off, and spray in either the spare room or the shed outside. Shed outside, doesn't matter about overspray! Spare room, I just use masking tape and newspaper to surround the box to make sure there's no little accidents.
Tray spraying in a box. otherwise you can not avoid over spray.

Since I'm very experienced with Tamiya spray cans, I couldn't avoid a big smile in my face when you were painting the black stripe and when you think you're pointing the nozzle in the right direction, you realize you've just painted a whole finger; happens to me very often. Happy to see it's not just me :)

Just a quick one for you, I noticed when you sprayed the black it was a bit "blobby" , do you warm your cans in warm water before use? It's just a small trick from painting lexan bodies for years and helps thin the paint and spray finer.

For the Americans, try the yellow FrogTape for Delicate Surfaces. It looks and feels just like Tamiya tape.
