Thank you so much for all the input, guys.  The information has been really helpful.  I realize too, that this info will help me with my pearl clear coats as well.

 

Thanks again! :D

Thanks for the input guys.  I really appreciate it.  I will slow down next time and work in thinner coats.

Both look great, but the gold is different from the most builds I have seen. Great work so far...

Thanks Carl!  The gold on those old Ferraris is a real unassuming color.  It took many tries to get it right!


Nice build Tom!  I like the color combination!

I'll have to try the Sharpie sometime soon... Is the future distorting the gauges? The Sharpie seems a little big.

No, I think I may have scraped a little too much paint (black) off of the needle before I used the Sharpie.  Kinda looks like it is vibrating at idle, doesn't it? ;)

Thanks Glenn!  They are dry brushed with silver and then a couple of coats of Future to simulate glass (that is hard to see in the photos).  The two needles were done with a red Sharpie.
