Hi John,

 

Belated Happy New Year!

 

I really admire the dexterity you display when assembling your 1/32 cars!

 

May I ask what type of paint do you employ when painting the car bodies/parts these days please?

 

Lacquer/enamel/oil base/ waterbase?

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

Ernie

Ernie, Happy New Year to you as well!

 

Thanks so much for the wonderful compliments!

 

The paint I used for the 356 body was automotive acrylic lacquer, applied using an airbrush. The interior, front trunk interior and engine bay were painted with Testor's enamel paints using a brush.

 

Here is part four of the build showing the body being painted:

 

 

I hope this helps!

 

Thanks

:)

John
