This is looking nice.  I have a Gyruss to be repainted so this is good to follow.  I wonder if a light coat of primer before the yellow would have helped?

Yes nice idea, but I'm ok with this kind of paint (3 coats and is done  :wink:).

And after 3 coats ... yellow is done:

Hopefully that is low-tack tape. It would suck to have the red and yellow paint peel off with the tape.

@scr33n: don't know if i've asked those questions again, but if i have, please answer them again ;)

(1) what type of roller are you using? i've switched to the following rollers lately (called "flockwalze" in german) and the results are pretty good :arrow:



(2) are you using each roller only once or are you using the same roller for each color?

(3) how long do you let the paint dry between each layer?

(4) what type of paint are you using? oil-based or water-based?

(5) how thick are your layers or rather how much paint do you put on the roller? do you "press" most of the color out of the roller or is it "soaked" with paint before rolling?

thx for your answers :) 8)

No probs Ully  :spaceace:

so....

(1) what type of roller are you using? i've switched to the following rollers lately (called "flockwalze" in german) and the results are pretty good :arrow:

This one:







0.76€ for piece

(2) are you using each roller only once or are you using the same roller for each color?

One roller for every coat of paint

(3) how long do you let the paint dry between each layer?

24 hours

(4) what type of paint are you using? oil-based or water-based?

Oil-based

(5) how thick are your layers or rather how much paint do you put on the roller? do you "press" most of the color out of the roller or is it "soaked" with paint before rolling?

Not a big quantity of paint (light coats of paint - 3 coats)

Hi, I'm new here.
After read all of your "scratch building", I can say that here in Spain, you have a fan.
I'm very impressed with your work and I'm really really interested in your paint process, so continuing with the questions on this topic:

1.- what type of tool are you using for the corners?
2.- If you use oil based paint, I supose that your primer is also oil based, is not?
3.- In other thread I read that you sanding between coats of primer, so I supose your paint process is as: "primer, sanding, primer, sanding, primer sanding, paint, paint, paint"
Is this correct? or are you sanding also between paint coats?
4.- What is the grit you use in your sanding stages?

thx for your answers

Welcome here Tapule and thanks for compliments  :spaceace: :spaceace:

1.- what type of tool are you using for the corners?

Little paintbrushes

2.- If you use oil based paint, I supose that your primer is also oil based, is not?

Yep  :wink:

3.- In other thread I read that you sanding between coats of primer, so I supose your paint process is as: "primer, sanding, primer, sanding, primer sanding, paint, paint, paint"
Is this correct? or are you sanding also between paint coats?

No, this is the correct process:

Primer - sanding - primer - sanding - paint - sanding - paint - sanding - paint

2 coats of primer and 3 coats of paint (in some cases - Q*bert and Track & field - 5 coats of paint  :evil:)

4.- What is the grit you use in your sanding stages?

400
