    Started my first kit, and frustrated. Help PLZ

    Don't give up. You are away from your comfort zone but on your way to a great journey. ;) Actually I never use primer for the interior but anyway. TRM and andrei383 gave good advice for using spray cans and as PharmPony mentions try to go for a Tamiya fine primer. Now, some spray cans loose a...

I entered it into Saturday's contest but came home without an award :( I was a little disappointed but I guess I should have put more attention when I joined the chassis to the body. Anyway, here are...

    Zombie Hunter Gyro-copter
