Tamiya Ferrari 360

Recommended Posts

This one is next I think 😊. Can anyone recommend some decent fine filler to help me repair the mess I made with my new tamiya scriber...🤔. Thanks in advance.

There's different thicknesses of Mr. Surfacer. The 500 and 1000 are the two I have and I think that the 500 is the thicker of the two

Thanks gents!  I'll try the fine one and see how it goes.  Always think CA is too hard if that makes sense.

ca is hard, yes, but you dont have to leave it forever to go off , you can polish it to a shine and it wont shrink back.  everyone has their own favourite :D 

 

Oh and dont tell anyone but I also use Mr surfacer a lot!! :o (1200 version here though)

But ,  ( no one else can see this bit, its just between me and you right?)  I didnt leave this long enough and a week later, after the paint was on, this shrank back to be (slightly) visible. this has never happened with ca.

so when you do it, leave it for a good while longer than I did (at least a week ) before you paint over it to avoid disappointment. and maybe you'll also need more than one application!! Just sayin'. ^_^

Hey noeyedears!   I experimented a bit last night and got a decent result.  I used a thinner ca than normal.  I also applied it with a needle which helped.  So..... I think I'll try that and see how goes. Thanks all for taking the time to reply. I'm thinking white for this car but still debating on which one 😊

I ended up using humbrol  acrylic primer.  It's quite thick and seems to be gradually filling the gashes.  Moving to interior, I wanted to replicate carpet but wanted to move away from just paint.  I found this stuff...Veloursfolie in a shop called wilco.  My gf found it online probably in a resigned effort to get me to shut up about the importance of scale effect........ Anyway, I'm sure it's well known on this forum but if not, definitely  worth a try.  It's thin so it conforms well to the surface it's applied to.  It also cuts perfectly with a sharp scalple.

Hopefully these pics are not too dark.  I was just messing about with an old kit.  

Oh and I primer the gearbox and engine bit.
