is a Revell Foose Ford pickup
truck model. This is the second one I've built. But
this one is more or less a quick build.
kit I used had a scratched / gouged front windshield.
I ordered some Vallejo
Air paint, a pink color, and ended up with an extra
bottle because I accidently ordered two of them.
also had some anime
/ manga style stickers I had ordered months back from
Amazon. It was a bag with about 100 or so different stickers.
can buy model cars with these style graphics on the decals,
but they can be expensive, so I ordered these stickers figuring
they would end up on a vehicle project I built sooner or
these three things coming together I decided to just build
a quick version of the truck since the windshield wasn't
also wanted to try a Vallejo paint on a car model and see
how well it worked. So this was a test / experiment as well.
model truck itself was assembled stock with no mods.
shot the body and related parts the pink color and as usual,
the Vallejo paint lays down nice and smooth. I did not use
primer. I previously tested the paint on a plastic spoon
and it went on with no issues so I didn't see any need for
painted several spoons and then tested different clears.
The best results was MinWax Fast Drying Polyurethane Clear
Gloss 33050 out of a can (available at Lowes when I bought
didn't harm the paint, and gave the paint a nice glossy
look (and thus, sealing it as the same time).
picked out various stickers from the 100 or so and cropped
those with scissors to fit the different parts of the truck.
These stickrs have a high gloss sheen to them. They went
on with no issues. I did use some CA glue to hold them down
in some of the more hard core curved areas.
I think it all worked out well as a quick project. The paint
worked perefectly, and I now have some experence with using
the stickers on a model for the next time I use any of them.
