tamiya gt86 wip

Postby awdracer » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:52 pm

havent done one in a long time so i decided to refresh my skills.. my serious project would be the next one which would be the tamiya evo IV

main goal of this project is to have very minimal stickers

this car is stupid curvy which resulted in bleeding with electrical tape. should try and paint window trim on the oustide next time. its painted gunmetal now and is drying in the meantime so ill let that dry and see what i can come up with the light buckets

Why are you using electrical tape to mask? I find any painters tape whether it be rc specific or not works perfectly fine, if you are dead set on using vinyl masking I would suggest getting something better than electrical tape.

ive used masking tape before and i had terrible abouts of bleeding. with electrical tape i usually get sharper lines but only downside is its not really flexible.. only straight lines!

ps anyone know how to clean up masking bleeds/mistakes?

Proper Tamiya masking tape is the best, clean lines all the time and it's pretty flexible.
I use a hobby knife to lightly clean up small bleeding.
