adrian green: doesnt the spray can have to be held closer to the body to prevent
MegaDragonMinecraft: does tamiya spray paints have the flakes in it? some of your models show
it, and it looks very nice! if theres different types of tamiya spray
paints which ones have flakes and which ones are normal paints? thanks!
EWS60008: Nice work! I was under the impression that you have to wait for 12-24 hours
between each coat as that is how I painted my Hudson Hornet model using
their TS-51 paint :).
譚耀威: hey Spencer, what kind of CLear Coat in Tamiya range do u recommend? Is it

AnotherDHSAgent: I JUST SCREWED UP BIG TIME SPRAY PAINTING MY SHERMAN, NOW I'M HERE......
kevinmosleyI: Nice vid- I learned a few things! The models look great! Could you tell me
the song name?
John Peter: Tried the technique you recommended and it worked great! Thank you! That
third step mist coat is the key-thanks again!
spencer1984.com: It could be one of a few things: if you are painting a lacquer over an
enamel, the lacquer can cause cracks and blisters. Also, if it is too cold
when you spray it can cause the paint to craze. Finally, paint has a
strange window of opportunity: many of them say to recoat within an hour or
after 48 hours (exact times may vary). During the period between those
times the paint is setting up, and adding more paint on top of it can cause
radityainderas: okay. should i spray the clear coat right after wet coat or after the paint
Krait009: Nice vid with painting techniques
spencer1984.com: Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a shot!
AnotherDHSAgent: my buddy learned the hard way of using that technique before on his
Panther. But I thank you for your enthusiasm and eagerness to help but I
think I will just give it to my nephew or keep it as an expensive reminder
that i should be patient and careful with handling paint.
spencer1984.com: I usually try to do it within a few minutes of the wet coat
spencer1984.com: Thanks, guys! bttfspencer - I love the Atomic Orange on the 1:1 Corvette,
it's one of my all-time favorite car colors. kevinmosley1 - the intro is
"Bass Vibes" and the main song is "Tea Roots," both by Kevin MacLeod
Christopher Wong: i see, i will try my best on the nxt one, thank you so much spencer!
nzspeedwayfan: Hey, nice simple video - thanks. Is your finish smooth enough to not need
any form of sanding or polishing?. Is the same method ok to use on metallic
finishes as well.?
Reemusfull: very good tip I am working on same way
spencer1984.com: "Wet coat" is the method of spraying the paint - that is, using slower
motions than a "mist coat." Ideally, the paint should flow smoothly onto
the body and level out during this step.
spencer1984.com: Ouch, what happened?
spencer1984.com: How do you figure? There are no runs or orange peel, and none of the panel
lines are obscured.
spencer1984.com: Not at all - glad I could help, and welcome to the hobby!
Rania C: I want to spray paint the edges of wings that I'm using for a costume. But
I don't want it to be really dark. Just kinda fading from the colour of the
wings to the paint colour. How many layers should I do? And how hard are
you supposed to press the nozzle when you spray? I'm worried I'll press too
hard and it'll make them too dark. I've never spray painted before and I'm
nervous I might ruin my wings.
Kagami11: You spray too much.
spencer1984.com: It depends somewhat on the brand - some seem to require a heavier trigger
finger than others. I usually try to use as little pressure as possible to
get paint flowing. Yes, I use about the same times for enamels. The final
gas-out time is longer, but I usually let bodies sit for a week or more
regardless (just to be safe).
spencer1984.com: Thanks! I almost always have to do some amount of wet sanding, even if it's
just spot touch-ups. I don't think I had to polish this one, but I usually
do...it's become a habit, so the model feels unfinished if I don't give it
a quick wipe-down.
bttfspencer: Great video, I've always loved the colour of that Vette'. :)
piano1444: OK who else is sick of that Justin bieber commercial for that spray
jetpack5: You can kill orange peel by placing a small box over your model as soon as
your done spraying. The solvents still in the paint will soften up the
flash dry skin of the paint and will smooth out again. Just don't leave it
too long or you might sag it, or loose paint on sharp corners.
spencer1984.com: I either spray it first and then mask off the windows (a single wide strip
of masking tape across the inside of the openings works great), or brush
paint it afterwards.
Murphys Luck: Thanks for the video.Keep up the good work!
spencer1984.com: I use this technique for all kinds of spray paint, and it works pretty much
the same across the board.
radityainderas: This is exactly what i''m looking for. by the way, what is wet coat? what
kind of wet coat did you use? where did you buy one? i believe that tamiya
doesn't have one of that isn't it?
spencer1984.com: You don't want to be sanding anywhere near this stage...the surface should
already be prepped and smooth before painting, and I usually wait a week or
more before wet sanding/polishing.
spencer1984.com: Rustoleum nozzles can be tricky...I'll usually offset the heavier spray by
using faster swipes, so less paint makes it to the model. Their primers
also usually need some wet sanding before color coats. On the plus side,
Rustoleum generally seems to have the best adhesion over unusual surfaces.
AnotherDHSAgent: went too heavy on the primer and the paint, made large uneven bulges on the
side skirts and most of the engine compartments.
Christopher Wong: thank you for such informative video, the demo was awesome but one question
pls? issit necessary to spray on so many coats? i personally tried tamiya
spray can on lego bricks, i only applied ONE layer in ONE shot after the
primer dries, which got the job done properly interms of coverage of the
whole brick, but the thing is what i get is a smooth feel BUT SANDY looking
surface, does doing it the way u demo will help me finish in a smooth
surface too? thanks!
spencer1984.com: Thanks! The Batmobile is a modified build of Johnny Lightning's 1/24 1950
charles bronsen: What do you do about the inside of the body? Just leave it?
spencer1984.com: As long as you give the paint plenty of time to dry, and use a low-tack
tape (3M's blue painters tape is a good one), you probably won't have any
problems. Brush painting works better with darker colors, but if you use a
good paint and a good brush you can minimize the stroke marks in lighter
colors as well. Good luck on the build!
Rockie soto: I have 1 question that been killing me when i see all of you paint. ya use
some kind of object to hold ya car. it look like ur using a brick other use
