AMT 1967 Impala SS Questions
Posted by Shnake on Monday, September 04, 2017 3:02 PM

Hey,

 

Ok I'm making this model for my daughter (It's her dream car).  I was never a car model guy always did planes...

The hood of the car has what I would call telegraph marks in it.  Meaning the underside detail bleads through the smooth top.

Ehat is the best way of getting rid of this?

Thank you

Shnake

the primer coat may help to hide it. Can you post a pic of the hood

Would a black primer, at least under the hood, help?

Hello!

What you need is "Filler-Primer" or "Spray-Filler" - basically a thick paint in a spray can, that can fill the imperfecions in the surface. Sand the surface smooth after it dries throughly. Motip makes one that I can recommend. Good luck with your build and have a nice day

How do you upload pics?

 

Go down the list of forums.

There is a big block of forums labeled Feedback, Help and Testing.  In that block is a forum called Technical Assistance.  Posting of pictures has been a frequent thread in that forum.  Look at ones that already exist. If no help there, then start a new thread by asking the question there.

Hi;

 What I do there is this . I spray a cleaned and prepped hood with Krylon brand primer .Then sand it from front to back , till under running water it's smooth and glossy without those " Ghost " marks .Then paint in a color of your choice ! T.B.
