Oh the chassis was not build by me it was built by a great mate Ken, I asked for his help in setting up the twin steer and with the length of the chassis as I have never done any thing like this, So now I have to finish this one, Picked up another rattle can of paint today for the cab, Ken picked up the blue for the chassis at Frontline Hobbies. Its not going to be a easy build if I get stuck Ken will help me out, Big Thanks to Ken for his help so far. Very Happy

I would of lost the detail in the roof trying to sand it out, so sand blasting all the paint off with the air eraser it will not damage the detail.

Drop some clear over it Allan, then lightly block back any lumps, then re-clear, it should save easily enough, can't see the need to keep stripping it back every time mate.

Hey Allan, I still use Tamiya spray, and I never have problems with it.
If you want to do your fancy one off colours you can decanter them and mix for airbrush.
as they say (wait 5 mins after decanting) use a straw, less mess.
Sometimes its better to take the most common approach to get the best finish.
If this does not work try BCF.

Could the dags on the roof come from leaving it to dry and dust landing on it ? Next time you spray it try putting some sort of cover over it to stop any dust landing on it while it drys . I understand your frustration mate but take a deep breath and keep at it .
