1/24 Airfix F6F-5 Hellcat "Kicked Up A Notch" June 10/21: Fuselage Closed

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys for the Mr Surfacer tips!  50:50 thinning it is and regular lacquer thinner to clean my airbrush, which I always use anyway.  I'm a long ways away from doing any real painting, but it's nice to know that combined with lots of meticulous sanding and Mr Surfacer, this model will be ultra smooth like it's supposed to be.

I can only echo what some of the others have said here, Chuck. I tend to use Mr. Surfacer 1000 cut 50/50 with Mr. Color Leveling Thinner, sprayed at about 18-20 psi. It lays down nicely, and wet sands beautiful with 600 grit paper. It can be polished further than that if necessary. I used to be dead set against primers, but after using this on a few multimedia projects, I am sold! I tend to use the grey, and the black myself……


Awesome work, by the way. Loving this build…..
