Re: painting kits

That all depends…



If you have a car which is a single solid colour then it’s usually easier to
spray the whole thing in one go. Simple paper masks can be used for things
like black ends and roofs if these are needed. Trucks can be installed later
– there are those who paint everything at one go including trucks, but I
find it much easier to paint and weather the underframe and trucks
separately



Fortunately I don’t need to do any fancy multi-coloured schemes, but these
sorts of schemes are where I would think about adding some details after
painting and decals; things like ladders and grabs can really get in the way
of applying masking tape

a beginners type question...have to start somewhere...-in the assembly of
kits such an intermountain railway kit, is it easier to airbrush paint
the deatil parts before attaching them to the body parts, as opposed to
painting the car after parts attached? DG
