Tera Away paint job
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, January 13, 2004 6:39 PM

I am going to attempt my first tear away paint scheme. I think I have got the masking fiqured out, but, I was wondering if anyone here has done tear away jobs.
Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated.

The only place I have seen a tear away paint job is on Tamiya kits, such as the Mercedes Benz CLK DTM Team2000 . http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/plastic/124sportscarseries/24237.html And I think they are all decals.

Hello, GOODGUY, and welcome. There is a book out called, "Build and Detail Model Cars Like a Pro" by Terry Jessee. He takes you step by step on a tear away paint scheme. There is also helpful detailing tips plus painting techniques. This book can be found by going to your nearest "Barnes and Noble" and asking for the title and author. It most likely won't be in stock but it only takes a couple of days for them to recieve it on special order. Good luck and may your next project be your best project!

is this book worth the money?

I was looking on Amazon and they mention a book called "How to Build Creative Dioramas for Your Scale Auto Models". Anyone knows this book is any good?

Thanks.

I have two books from Amazon. Custom Car Modeling by Mark Gustavson. (It's from the publisher of Scale Auto Enthusiast magazine). It's the one with the awesome looking custom red Ford on the cover. This book entails techniques on how to modify the car, by chopping, sectioning etc. If you don't know how to do it, like me, then this book will tell you how. The other book I have is Build & Detail Model Cars Like a Pro by Terry Jessee. This 128 page book covers many aspects of the hobby like painting, detailing, etc over an array of different models. I haven't had the book long enough to say if it's new stuff (to me) or recycled techniques. But a brief look at it over dinner I saw many things that I would like to try. I would say this book is worth the money.

Only you can decide if it's worth the money...

...the Creative Diorama book is full of good tips, Ken Hamilton (the Author) is a master at creating miniature illusions. Everyone can learn something from his writings.

Thanks modelcarguy for the info on the book. I have ordered it based on your critique of the book. I believe if Terry Jesse wrote it, it will be a good book.
And thank you to all of the other members who had input.
Thanks All,
Goodguy
