Prep for Painting Shapeways Models
Posted by Charles Jones on 4/9/2017, 9:13 am
I recently purchased both the Type 2L tanker and its cousin the same hull fitted as an aircraft transport. All four models (2 of each) are the "Frosted Ultra Detailed" finish. I would appreciate some advice regarding how to prep this finish before painting (I plan to use acrylics) and how well these paints hold up as I would like to be able to do some masking without pulling up the paint.
In passing, I think the models are nicely molded with the exception of the masts which are either missing or very much out of scale and should be replaced. Can't be too picky as they are fairly priced and represent models never before available.
