I should have left mine in the box sealed. Lets just say I can not use spry paint. :( Was you suppose to primer it first? The paint didn't stick at all on mine. :p

Some hints on painting these bastards would be help, I was thinking about just using spraypaint on them but now I'm thinking it wouldn't work too well on this materal:x

I used to build model airplanes when I was younger. I usually got some sandpaper and rubbed the plastic prior to painting. It helped the paint bond better. Don't use spray paint. Use an airbrush. You can pick up a cheap singe action one for less than 30 clams and get one of those canned air deals for a couple of bucks more.

$27 is a joke. You can get it for $12-15 at many local and online hobby shops.

I have one. It's not bad. My only complaint is that the hood is molded shut, so there is no engine detail.

Some modeling hints.....

Before spraying you're supposed to wash parts with a mild soap and water to remove any oils left by the molding process.
Leave as many parts as you can on the "trees" when you paint them and touch them up when you remove them from the tree, always sanding the "mold bumps" prior to touching up.
Use tweezers to attach smalls parts.

Last night I just completed a 1/20th scale 1st Gen Dodge Stealt TT (with an opening hood Jeff!!!!) and it came out pretty decent. If I remember to bring it tomorrow, I'll post pics.

Patience is a must when doing these. It took me the better part of a week to do this one.

Btw, I have done that Tamiya model and the finished product is 6" long.

Anyone seen any 2nd gen TT models (plastic) out there?

Heres a couple of shots of that Tamiya model....

Painted to match my old 94 VR4. (I know, its a 1st gen model....). They're in my office....

Its in a case with a 911 Turbo Carerra I built after it...

Not bad for an old guy, eh?
