Re: ATTN: Craig201 - ? about model customizing
yep I completely sandblast them down to bare metal then use regular grey primer so the paint sticks. Depending on what you're using for an air supply I go with about 25-30 psi so I don't get any orange peel. Make sure you lay down enough base coat so the paint is consistant in color and thickness. Then hit it with 3-4 coats of clear coat so the finish is smooth and shiny.
Any other questions just give me a shout.
