Hi Guys,
Very excited to receive my first 3D print today. It's actually my first 3D model, so l'm very happy with how they turned out.

They're alot smoother then l expected. I was expecting l would have to prime and sand, but it's so smooth the paint should do the trick.

Now all that's left is to paint according to the mock up l did:

I'm thinking l might use the tamiya paints with a fine brush, then a marine epoxy over the top. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

So how did the paint turn out? I am working on my own emblem, but I was going to get part made from stainless for the shiny bits.
