Alclad primer on ready for the shinny silver stuff to go on ! Had to do a lot of filling sanding buffing u name it its been done.. Spent 6 hours on it so far and still needs some touching up…. Would rather spend time getting it right on the rest so the real thing on the 1/12 models is perfect ,,,,,!!!!
The chrome is on the wheels and part sprayed on the rear of the body letting it settle a bit before i continue….
Courtesy of http://www.alclad2.com website this is the finished effect of metal finishes on model resin products.
Alclad2’s bread and butter metal finishes: worth knowing what you are wanting as a metal match to your build.
These are the main items I use. Alclad gloss base to get the additional metal look. Masking tape to separate surfaces. Note when using tape that the paint has fully cured before using it especially on alclad as it brushes off quite easily and ruins your work. Always be mindful of this in all cases.
Anybody wanting to use this stuff please please use a respirator…..
