Hey guys, I have started building this couple of weeks ago, then I got sick so only managed to built the engines that week. Finally got some time this weekend to carry on building, but forgot to take photos. Got a coat of gloss black down today and the challenging part of putting down metallic paints starts tomorrow.
I've got both the AK Polished Aluminium and Chrome. Was going to try one or both on the Datsun I'm building. Also have the Alclads which give a great finish but are fragile and need to get a protective coat on them before they wear away from handling.
Im lucky enough to have both kits in the stash, they are not small machines.
The shine looks really good but its the old story that clearcoats really do knock back that metallic look, buy you really want to protect them.
The best I have found is actually klear or the alclad klear but apparently the Vallejo stuff leaves the evect almost completely intact.
Stand aside caffine, this is a job for alcohol.
