I've recently been working on a Revell 1970 Boss 429. I just painted the frame the other day, but as with my other car, I want a detailed underside with more than just the body color. Does anyone have any pictures or suggestions in terms of what to do? Thanks.
Mike, most cars from the '70 had uni-body construction. For the most part the under side was a semi-flat black. However, the sides of the under body normally ended up the body color due to over spray when the main body was painted.
My personal choice for semi-flat black is Krylon rattle can. It produces a nice smooth surface. If you are using an air brush to paint the body, just haze the body color on the edges of the underframe. If you're using a rattle can tape off the major portion of the underframe and lightly spray the edges of the chassis.

Underneath color was always primer unless the customer ordered undercoating which was a light grey color sprayed on none-to-carefully.
