Interior question??
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, April 25, 2004 5:46 PM
Just wanted to ask what everyone does for headliners in the models they build. Do you put anything on it or just paint it? I want the 64 Dodge I'm building for the Factory Stock CBP to look as realistic as possible. Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

try using cotton and real fabric. You could also try masking tape.

I've used faux spray to get texture and then covered it with color and clear flat. I have used very thin skived(spelled right?) leather glued down with white glue and I have used velvet like material with a very high thread count that looks perfectly in scale. All are good.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Premiere Hobby Products have 2 thing you might try. First is a texture paint that is airbrushed on called Premiere Upholstery Paint second is their Premiere Utility Paste It's like a putty but you brush it on with this you can do headliners door panels body mods. etc. The tech support you get from this company is great email them at wcarr76009@aol.com

I agree with hot ford coupe. Sign - Ditto Scale Motorsport makes a great textured spray paint for just this application. It also works great for vinyl tops as well as to simulate carpeting.

some of that plastisized bandage clear tape has minor perferations in it which could be use to simulate the perforated fabric material and the thread for the roof bows material sown area is a good idea... use interior pics for reference to determine spacing and placement..

look at various paper towel fabric also don't overlok shopping remenants of real thin fabric at fabric stores too..

Hey guys, The Faux Fabric that was mentioned can also be found at Hobby Lobby and Micheals but in a larger can for about the same price. I have at times found it a larger Walmart. I believe the company is Krylon. It s available in at least six colors. camaroman
