Being quite new to the wonderful world of Vallejo, I have just sprayed some surface primer on the Airfix Phantom FG1 I am going to do in the 25th anniversary scheme. Has my nose been abused by too many chemicals in the service of the art, or does this stuff actually smell quite nice? Compare and contrast with Tamiya Extra Thin Cement, which I am adamant shrivels nostril hairs. I am not advocating glue sniffing as a recreational activity!
Hi all, I've just sprayed a model with Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer. I thinned with Tamiya Lacquer Thinner it to about 2:1 - twice the amount of thinner as primer - and added a small amount of Tamiya Paint Retarder. I ran the airbrush at about 18 psi, which seemed to work very well with almost no graining. The problem is that I seem to have attracted some dust (I haven't got a spray booth) in some sections which will need sanding and there are a couple of other spot which need a touch up too, probably with some Mr Surfacer 500. Otherwise, it's not bad. So the question is, what do you use to rub this stuff down? I have some very fine grade paper, like 1200 and 2000. Will that do it properly? Any advice welcome and gratefully received.
