Thanks for all the great compliments, guys! I had planned to paint the standard multi-colored flames, but thought the white would look better with the green. I'm glad I went with the white. The flame mask worked really well. I'll be using more of them!

I'm a massive fan of flames and 49 Mercs, so this is right up my boulevard!
Glad to see you had success with the flame mask. I bought some of these recently. Nice to know they're worth the dollars.
Nice work mate. Diorama photoshoot works well too.

Jamie, nice job on your Merc. I've seen that green color on several custom 49 Merc's, and it always looks good. Nice work!

Great looking build! One suggestion would be to dull the shine on the figures. Keep the shine to the car! I like the "downtown" look of the photo background, well done.

Yeah, those figures are a little glossy. I used gloss enamel, then sprayed them with some Krylon matte clear. It didn't work very well. Adding more coats of clear doesn't help. I need to get some Dullcote.

I use Tamiya flat acrylics. Tamiya offeres a clear flat, as well. The paints are great, self-leveling, matte finish, and back in stock!
