This one is a pretty new addition to the diecast car making but it will surely give you the look you are looking for. This is applied last to make it the shine that imitates the real version of the car it was modeled after.

  1. I agree with the glue. You can buy a glue for this hobby that will have maximum hold. Also you might want to consider something that can be easily removed from your hands because if you’re messy like me, it’s difficult to remove this glue after doing your project.

  2. When it comes to paint, you might want to buy small amount first. Well, if you’re just a beginner, you should not buy big ones because trust me, they might just go to waste as they dry out pretty fast. Also, it takes a lot of discipline and control for you to be really good in doing this hobby.

  3. Wow, you have so many additional things listed here. I am wondering if you really need all of them or you can just use what’s in the kit. Because I think, the panel accent is just a fancy stuff because technically, that’s the job of the paint you just bought so you might want to rethink if you’re gonna use it.
