McLovin the "Show Car" paint.

I built one of those silver swirly styrene Vickys myself
in dark Purple and did the interior in white..
what are your plans for your Vicky? Interior wise.

thanks. i use dupont urethane clear shot through a sata minijet gun. it goes on nice and smooth the first time around and no polishing is required.

i remember the one that you did and if i remember right it inspired me to get started on this one. the interior is almost done...just need to glue in the seats and make some seatbelts. it is flat black with a vertical tuck n roll just to add a little interest. i also gave it a woodgrain dash. i will post pics when i get time. thanks for following along.

Remarkable work, Andy! What paint did you use to get that incredible shade of green?
