    Hi guys

    I saw Mechafacture and ambroseya's WFC prime and bumblebee works

    They are really good..

    i wanted to paint my own prime like theirs, and was looking for that neon paints they used.

    But i dunno where I can order them?




    Testors » Testors » Enamel Paint Sets » Enamel Paint Sets » All-Purpose Fluorescent 6 Color Paint Set

    Did the testors stop making the neon ones and are these the like newer models for that paint?


    Or are they not the same things as the neon paints?


    Arghh.. i really want to get these paints so i could paint my prime too..


    Someone plz let me konw...that would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    they are still available, but to be honest, I've tried those AND the model master type...and no matter what light and photo set up I try, the neon areas come out nothing like MF's images, so I am confused a little.

    your best bet is Model Master's on those, they are the same thing.

    I typically order from these guys, they carry a few florescent colors...

    Yeah no problem man, just let me know if I need to buy it for ya. I do want to try neon down the road, once I figure this painting thing out of course.

    I just realized last night painting white on a red car is not a good idea and in the future will do two coats and then a spray can.
