Again, I haven’t posted the work in progress pictures on here as I’ve been posting it all on Instagram.
Splash Paints contacted me a while back, and sent me this Tamiya Mustang GT4, some of their Ford Ruby Red, and their 2k clear to showcase their product.
This build turned out so amazing. Splash Paints really knocked it out of the park with the Ford Ruby Red/2k combo.
If anyone is on the fence about using Splash Paints, give them a try. Super simple to use, shake, load up the airbrush, and spray.
The kit is built essentially stock, minus a lot of carbon from Scale Motorsports, wiring, and hoses added.
The body was prepped and primed in Splash Paints Dark Grey Surface Primer, then the Ford Ruby Red was laid down. This paint laid down smoothly and glossy (even without clear). Kit livery decals were then added, with an addition of a carbon fiber roof, carbon side skirts, carbon hood vents, a carbon rear filler panel, and carbon front lip/undertrays from Scale Motorsports.
The interior/chassis is painted in Splash Paints Essential Series Pure White and covered with a coat of Semi Gloss Tamiya Clear, then weathered for a race worn look.
The interior also has all panels done in carbon fiber, just as the 1:1 has, using Scale Motorsports carbon decals. It was then fully wired for extra details. The harness used is an Eduard Photo-etch harness.
The wheels are finished in Splash Paints Gunmetal Metalizer. The tires have been sanded down for a worn look, then Power Slide tire decals were used, and weathered as well.
I will definitely be adding another one or two of these to the stash and building another livery and a street car!
On to the next build. Thanks for looking!
