All,
I have recently ordered some of the 'Classic' range of fibreglass bodyshells and would appreciate any advise any of you can provide on working with this material. From previous posts I understand that I should expect to do lots of filling, any thing else ? What types of paint are suitable, can I use tamiya sprays ?

Thanks for any help, regards
Duane.

Thanks for the replies so far.
I have received my classic shells, and have another request for tips -

Some of the models - (Maserati Breadvan, Porsche 917) come with a vac form that I am guessing must be painted to represent part of the body as well as the screen.

Can anyone post some examples of a model where they have done this and provide tips on any of the following -
tips for gettting clean/seamless joins between the vac form and fibreglass
what paints and primer to use on vac forms
any detailing tips i.e. pillars

Thanks again,
Duane
