I would like to try my hand at a paint job like this. What would be best for me to mask off the panels with? I'm pretty sure I should paint a white base coat, then mask off what I want to stay white, but with what? Would BMF work?

John Goschke built an spectacular T-bird on here - you could try to google search the site and see how he did his paint.

Thanks, man.... I saw John's awesome T-Bird! He used photographic tape cut into thin strips to mask his...

 

If that would be my best route, where can you find this tape?

i have used a good quality masking tape cut to the desired width/shape with good results.  i use an old table top from a glass top end table that i clean and polish really well, then lay the tape down and cut with a straight edge and hobby knife.

Would any of you guys happen to have detail shots of this car? Engine, interior, etc...? The guy who built the 1:1 chronicled the build on the H.A.M.B, but the pictures won't show on my computer.......

 

Thanks, fellas.....

I read somewhere that this car was on E Bay at one time. How would I go about finding the listing for it? I'm sure there would be plenty of pics of what I need reference for....

 

Thank you for any and all help!

when I was painting motorcycle tanks,after I laid down the tape or stencil I would put down a light coat of the base paint or clear then spray the top color.this would help prevent bleed thru on the tape edges.I haven't tried this on a model yet but thought I would mention it

I'm not sure how much this will help but here's a tutorial I did on paint jobs similar to what you're wanting to do.

Type the following into a Google image search; "Kirk Jones + May Cause Dangerous" Exactly like that and you'll see plenty of photos.

 

Also if you don't have it, search eBay for issue number 45 of The Rodder's Journal which contains a full feature of the car.
