Hi I'm Steven and i*m new here!!
So this is my first Projekt with a different Design.
Posted Image

I`m using Tamiya and ModelMaster Acryl colors. Also the Tamiya X22 Clear Coat(not good).
The first step was to wet sanding and prime the body.
Posted ImagePosted Image

After that a coat shining white (tamiya X2)
Posted Image

Now the Stripes(i`m using tesa precision tape!)
Posted Image
Now the Red Coat (ModelMaster)
Posted Image

And after removing the tape - Wet sanding again
Posted Image

I had no masking tape so i couldn`t use the fire deisgn! so i made it simple!
Tamiya Blue and Tamiya White for the Stars

Posted Image


No a few coats clear and BareMetal Foil then i`m done.
I`m happy for any tips and comments! Thank you!

Well that's different and I like it. Very nice job with the paint, I can see no mistakes on it. Are you going to clearcoat or polish it, to me it would look even better like that, but of course it's very nice as it is now.

I can't wait to see more.

but that was a failure.

i used dupliColor Cars 2k Clear and the clear coat got some cracks :/
