Hey Guys I need to know whether or not my B-58 Project Is turning out all right or night. I put some paint on the Hustler today using Floqil old siver and it seams a bit patchy and frosty looking to me. I am using a VL Paasche Double action airbrush and a Habor freight compressor to paint with. The compressor is great so far since I have had it, but the airbrush want's to spray the paint so that it looks shiney in some spots and duller in others. I'ts not as consistant of a paint job as I would like. Also want your opinion on the panels lines and how they sould be. I don't know whether I did overkill on the sanding of the panel lines or not. I wet sanded the whole moedel down a bit before puting any paint on it. The base coat I used was a automotive plastic primer wich took out the scratches nicely. Then a good coat of flat black Automotive plastic primer which was wet sanded down until fairly shiney. Then the Floqil coat was last. I really don't like the Idea of using Primers befor puting on the silver because I feel it thickens the coats up to much on the model and makes it to toy like. I would apreciate all the advice and Critisism I can get on this build I am doing. Thanks.

PS,Sory for the poor quality of the pics, my camera is not been co operating with me lately.
