I don't clear my cars either unless it's base coat/clear paint. Looks like you did a good job getting that Silver Leaf on. I've used Tamiya Titanium Gold from rattle can before, great color, mine always came out like a semi-gloss, should look nice on the wheels. Very nice looking car you have in the making JC. I just finished watching this years race last night.
Tthanks Niko, that means a lot. I'll be back on this one at some point I'm sure, and , I'll be glad I waited. Thanks a bunch JC, I think in the end I'll be glad i waited on this, when I start it again I'll be ready for what needs to be done. Hope all your builds are going well.
Spray cans. I wouldn't mind trying an airbrush, but , I do like the challange inherent with spray cans, (there are many, especially if you paint outdoors) it's almost like some kind of alchemy. I just like painting and working with colors, really like it , and right now cans are what I have to work with.
