    Well here she is s far as my skills will take me. The new skill i put on this is the BMF under the mirrors reveling the Mack script in chrome. All the paint is craft paint except the axles and chassis details done with Vallejo. I changed my mind several times before i decided to go with no fenders and really no issues putting this one together.All in all a fun build for me. So here it is,let me here it like it is

  12. Paint Experiment

    i believe it can be polished if let to cure completely.If i can get it to lay like the rattle can enamels i sometime use i would be happy but thats seams to be my hurdle i cant get past. I lay it as heavy as i can without running but it still drys with way to much orangepeel

I havent used the dupli color so cant help you there I have yet to put a contest worthy paint job on my work but im not really interested at this time in putting in the effort to do so but i have learned to do an acceptable to me job for the shelf sitters i build.Heres the stuff i use,distilled water is the other ingredient not shown to make a home brew reducer.For me 30% reducer to the craft paints sprays well in my neo AB. The Minwax i reduce with straight distilled water at same %
