Re: To Cut or Not?

I'm not sure if it works in painting RCs but my design teacher said for print, they put a blue coat under black to make it pop.
Current models: Hobbico Nexstar Electric, Parkzone Spitfire Mk IX , several micros/small helis. Nothing nitro/gas.

Re: To Cut or Not?

As a note, if you ever want anything that actually looks like sheet metal when you're done look at Tamiya 86048. You need to do 50% more coats than you normally would and back it with either silver or white but damn, it reflects like the real thing. I'm actually going to use it on my axial exo terra.
Helicopters: Walkera(10?), Esky(3), Blade(5), Align(7), Miniature Aircraft(2), Hirobo(2), Mikado(2), Century(3), Thunder Tiger(4), Gaui (5).
Trucks/Cars: Tamiya(8 ), Traxxas(6), HPI(1), Losi(2), Ofna(2), Thunder Tiger(2), Hot Bodies(1), Axial (1).
Boats: 4
Snowcat: 1 Kyosho Blizzard (electric)
Snowmobiles: 2 x Polaris (toy grade), art attack electric
