Great build Denzil,

I thought that you couldn't use Tamiya PS paints on plastic kits for some reason, but looking at that i suppose you can!

Thanks again guys :)

Slusher: the background, is just my backyard, best lighting available at the time ;-)

Darbo: I've never had a problem with them, as long as you put down a primer coat first. The order for the challenger was: Tamiya fine primer , Tamiya gloss black (TS whatever-it-is), then the PS46. All followed by Tamiya clear gloss.The PS46 in particular requires a black base coat for the effect to work.

I want to grab the gold/purple paint next, but I haven't decided on what car it would look good on. Decisions decisions....;)

Cheers,
Denzil

Awesome the paint looks a mile deep (or I guess 1.6 kilometers to you) I agree about who cares if it doesn't have mirrors or the engine is the wrong color. Although I did not know that the engines were painted body. Over all a terrific job

Very nice. You did a great job photographing the color change. This has been a source of frustration for me.

Thanks guys :D

Jim, it was pure luck that the colours showed in the pictures! I did take the pics outside, in natural light, which I reckon helped.
Cheers,
Denzil

Really nice looking Challenger. I never knew of a Revell Challenger with the axle through the engine.
