Re: 1/24 Nissan 300ZX - A copy of my 1:1 car

The first top coat of silver has gone on using Tamiya TS-30 (Silver Leaf). The result isn't quite good enough though when inspected up close. Normally I sand the primer base coat then check it in sunlight to make sure it's all good to go. I skipped the checking in sunlight part this time, and obviously it's done me no favours as some blemishes show through into the silver.

So now I'm in the process of wet sanding the silver with 1200 to 2400 grit sandpaper and polishing cloths, and then it'll be right for the next top coat and detail painting.
