Painting civil planes white silver
 
Just advice on best method of painting a civil model where top of fuselage is white and lower in silver.


Do I spray whole model white then mask for the silver, or mask the white and the silver? don't want to end up with a lumpy dividing line.


also best masking tape.

I apply primer on all the aircraft, then I spray white the areas that need to be painted white, no masking tape, I simply avoid the other areas that will be silver.
When the white paint is dry, I use masking tape and paint the rest of the model in silver.

Any excess of paint has to be avoided.
Particularly true with the white paint which is very fluid.

The primer I use is white.

for a cleaner line i use 1mm cutting tape then mask off the rest in the standard way.

Thanks JP

I am fine at painting itself. My last 2x concorde plastic models had multiple layers of paint with T'cut and or 1200/2400 grit emery inbetween to smooth blemishes until I have a perfectly smooth even finish.
Also use white primer in multiple layers. I hate plastic kits but sometimes thats all we have to work with.

Do you wet sand between coats as well? Also, can someone provide a link to the 1mm tape that was discussed? I'm unfamiliar with proper tape for this purpose. Thanks!

Also why 1mm tape I am looking at Tamiya - 6mm or 10mm looks to fit the bill with maybe 3mm for the curves?

The wider the tape the more chance it has of kinking around curves, and its great for detail work. the others maybe fine but that's what i use and i get very good results.

If you want to use wider then feel free. i am not saying i have the best method, it just works for me.:cool:
