Re: Airbrushing Resin Kits

I paint the complete assembled model by painting the underbody, ends and roof
while holding the sides with my fingers.  Then I pick up a large electrical
alligator clip, about an inch plus long, and use it grab the centersill near the
car center for balance.  This is stable enough to hold the car for the remainder
of the painting process.  Some of the finer centersill castings tend to deflect
under the pressure of the jaws but this can be mitigated by placing a styrene
spacer between the cast channels to keep them from collapsing together.

Hope this helps,
Bill Darnaby

While the spring loaded "expander" handle works fine for car bodies with
removable shells, what does one use to hold assembled Westerfield and Sunshine
models for spray-painting? Any tips?
