    Hi everyone,

    Sorry for the silly questions as I am a newbie to building kits. I just recently got my Aventador kit and I am about to get my feet wet. I just removed some of the parts.
    I have a few questions:

    1. Do I need to wash all the parts prior to painting as I heard that there maybe residues from the molding process left on the plastic parts? What chemical should I use to remove the reaidues/grease that won't cause damage to the plastic parts? Is liquid dish soap ok?

    2. Do I need to sand Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... all the plastic parts that need to be painted/primed so the paint will stick on the surface better?
    I am planning to use acrylic Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... paint or if you have any recommendation on the type of paint that works better please let me know.

    3. I am lost looking at the parts and not sure where to start. Some said start on the engine some start on interior. Is it a good idea to follow exactly where the instruction manual begins?

    4. Do those numbers attached to the parts mean anything or make them easy to identify during the build? I am planning to remove all the parts first.
    Thanks in advance.

    You will enjoy this kit. I use only automotive rattle cans to paint, so keep that in mind as I answer below. If you are airbrushing Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... with water based paints you should get advice from someone who does the same.

No. I spray without washing the parts, usually doing a whole sprue Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... at one time and touching up any visible sprue Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... attachment points after removing individual parts.

    2. Do I need to sand Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... all the plastic parts that need to be painted/primed so the paint will stick on the surface better? No, don't sand Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... , you'll only remove surface detail or add scratches. I don't usually prime either, although I often use primer Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... as an engine or chassis color on its own.

    3. I am lost looking at the parts and not sure where to start. Some said start on the engine some start on interior. Is it a good idea to follow exactly where the instruction manual begins? Feel free to build smaller sub-assemblies in any order, but except for the engine I usually follow the order of the manual.

    Thanks in advance. See my first note above. I usually paint whole sprues and remove the parts as I need them. Keep parts from a single sprue Starting my Pocher Aventador Roadster... together at the very least to help find them when you need them.

    Hi Brady,

    Finally someone replied to my post hahaha. Thank you and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to answer each of my question thoroughly. So the automotive rattle can type can provide a smooth finish correct (as that is my main concern)?
