Re: preparation of styrene kits for painting

Marcelo Lordeiro <mrcustom@...>


I sandblast all styrene models before painting . I use 40 lbs pressure and the finest grain available.

The primer is used not to make the model gray ( you can find primers in other colours ) but to prepare the surface to receive the paint.

Different material need specific primers.

I use to paint all plastic models gray to check if the surface is perfect.
