Here is the kit, before panel lining. Wasted that the blue turned out quite rubbish.

    funny i was about to ask you why no panel lines applied :)
    Maybe from the spray can nozzle resulting in that rough blue? your using FLAT paint or Glossy?
    I think what they do is use a very fine sandpaper to fix that paint problem?
    looking forward to the panel lines and decals.

  1. Bro, I thought it looks nice...what do I know right...LOL

    @Al: it will include panel lines and decals soon. :) Am using glossy blue, red and yellow. The white is flat.

    Think these could be probable causes of the uneven colour.

    - spray can nozzle clogged
    - sprayed too close
    - didn't shake the can well before spraying
    - no primer applied

    Will learn from the above mistakes and try to improve on the next kit.

    I think even using a high grit sand paper may scrape off the paint as their isn't a primer layer to help the paint cure properly.

    Will just leave it as it is, am way behind schedule.

    @Adrian: There's no denying it's a damn good looking kit, pity about the paintjob.
