2. your bumping an old thread.
3. you already have put a thread up on this.
4. this question has been covered over and over and over. 1/24th or 1/25th is the majority of model body conversions. both require lengthening the chassis.

new or not your expected to follow the rules, so stop by them and have a look over them. most questions asked have been covered many times. so please use the search button........

nope,fusion is the only one that claims chemical adhesion though.
just about any rattlecan paint will do the trick with mechanical adhesion.(sanding)
the question is,what kind of finish are you looking for?

I love Krylon Fusion. I use it on everything plastic and about 97% of the time, it comes out smooth and shiny. The only time it did not happen was when I used it on an Xmod. I made the mistake of using a duplicolor rattlecan for the base, and then krylon over it. Bad idea...

i have a nissan gt-r and i was wondering, since it's silver it would back my new gloss black finish well. Do I have to sand and do a coat of silver?
