Here's a subject I've not seen on here often, if at all. This is the Revell kit, built box stock. Visiting this forum has encouraged me to try some new things, so I tried fading paint on the body, from a Testor's transparent blue on the very back to Testor's Candy Apple Red on the front. This is consistent with the pictures I found of this car in various resources. Both colors were shot over a Testor's silver base coat. I know this isn't on a par with some of the other models posted on here, but I thought it turned out okay. Thanks for looking guys.

Steve

I wouldnt worry bout being "on par" so much as just enjoying the hobby,and building in general. Heck,,maybe make it a project someday of pulling the mtr out,and adding wires,plumbing ect. I do that alot with my older kits that dont have wires and such. Rebuilds are just as much fun as start from scratch kits,yours looks fine to me.
