Nice work so far. That paint did lay down nicely.

You added MORE thinner?!  I just decanted a rattle can of Model Master pearl white lacquer and I had to remove some thinner once it sat and seperated, it was so watery.  How many coats did you do? I had to do about 8 thin ones, took me a couple of hours.  I gotta say, your paint job turned out better than mine. I had to go the 3200 to 12000 polishing pad routine.

I am using enamel with laquer thinner. I don't know about using laquer if it needs more or not. What airbrush are you using. That makes a difference. I have Grex Tritium and Paasche VL. The Grex need thinner paint than the Paasche because it atomizes the paint finer.

I haven't decanted paint yet but I have mixed the Tester's enamel in the small bottle 1:1 with Lacquer Thinner.  It goes on nice... that Lacquer Thinner dries fast so there is no chance of runs.  But I always get junk in the paint and then it takes forever to not be sticky.  I think I am going to Lacquer paints from now on but I will be curious to see how quick yours dries being it was decanted.

That Tester's enamel Silver Metallic I sprayed on was the nicest looking silver paint I have seen.  Wish I could make it work.  Really, I hope I can find a Lacquer paint that looks just as good.

Testors silver is awesome. I have yet to have a paint job using that color go south on me.  I wish it was possible to save leftover enamel paints that are mixed with lacquer. I get so worried I won't have enough that I end up making gallons, ( well, ounces )  too much sometimes.

what happens to the mixed paint? Mine was still good a few days later when I used it again. How long do you let your enamel paint harden before you can work with the body again?

Man, you do great detail work.  What is your secret?  Brush or spray?  and how do you mask?

Well, its done. The kit goes together very well, nice instruction sheet and good parts fit. Better than any Fujimi kit I ever built. The decal sheet is very good too, good quality and they are laid out somewhat like they were flat patterned from the car's body. So here are the photos.

The 934 is a great looking race car, and you have done a beautiful build, your paintwork, decals application and extra detailing are first class ... but to me it looks to sit too high.  The box art photo appears quite a bit lower.  Can it be adjusted and lowered some?  Cheers

Nice build. Very clean and good detailing. The car is striking in its orange livery. Cool!
