What paints did you use for that Kandy Apple Red?

 

Thanks again, guys, for all the comments.

 

Austin, the candy red is actually Tamiya Mica Red over Tamiya Silver Leaf. The silver gives it additional depth, as does the Tamiya Clear.

Beautiful paint work with a Wow!!!  Got a feeling it looks even better in real life than in the photos, if that is possible. Larry Watson would most definitely have been proud.  :wub:
