You make any model look outstanding Cruz, this paintjob is just awesome. I am practicing my panel line work after reading the article you wrote on the mag, this model proves that there is no better system than yours! :rolleyes:

Outstanding work as always Marcos ! The paint,panel lines, killer BMF, and clean clean clean build all add up to an amazing contemporary street rod. Well done and thanks for the eye-candy !

Beautiful paint job Cruz! I remember reading an article of yours where you used flat enamel topped with Testors clear from a can. Did you use the same on this model or something else? Thanks in advance, KB

Thanks guys. The base coat is Testor's flat yellow from the small enamel bottles with Testor's wet look clear. The BMF looks smooth and shiny for 2 main reasons, I make sure the finish is smooth on the paint even around the window moldings and I use wax on the BMF after application.....
