Default A horrible, horrible disaster.

Well, I recently assembled my first Russ, undercoated it.

I read in a WD issue that you can use Putty to create some cool camo.

I tried that, and I can barely get it off! It took me hours, and there's still spots.

Well, time for a fresh new coat of paint. :

Do you mean that you used putty to put the design on the tank and then you spray it leaving the camo pattern behind.

Well, what you need to do with that method is use vaseline and put it on both of the medians that you will be putting the putty on. Then when you are done spraying it should come right off.

it probably meant put putty on[not mixed will do, bluetack ect will do aswell] spray it a different colour and take off the putty,leaving behind camo.

try masking tape, saves you putty and you can make nice hard edges.

Yea, your supposed to put something on it so it'll come off afterwards.

An alternative is to take a bits of newspaper and put them on it, then just pull em off after you spray.

Spit.

Not even kidding, the moisture will be enough to hold it down while you're spraying.

If your doing high quality painting with an airbrush or other fine spray device, they have a paper that has one adhesive side that goes on the model. Then you seal around the edges well and you can spray without any worry of painting seaping through. This works really good for fine spray painting.
