    Make sure to also look at some 1/1 reference photos for the correct placement of the strips....

    I used Plastruct Styrene Strips for the top as well as the chrome molding that separates the body roof lines from the bottom part of the body. Make sure to add extra primer to the middle of the roof once you add the strips. You want to make sure to recreate the overlap look of the strips.

    I used to do it that way also, it was a trick I learned from Jairus. The fact that this does eliminate that extra step does function better for me. I must apologize because the blue Charger shown on the image was done with the 3M Spray Mount, I just forgot about it. I think you get the same results with both techniques but I think the older I get, the lazier I am becoming.....

    I've never been crazy about the masking tape route either, I'd much rather use the tape for its true purpose. Just shoot the paint from a distance and once dry, lightly sand it with at least a 3200 grit sanding cloth and that's it. Enamel based gloss paint works best because it leaves a heavier orange peel which is what you are going for. Don't forget to add the strips that run from front to back.

    I like to use this product available at Games Workshop. These are washes that are available in various colors. They are water based which is what I like best.

    That is Mythical Maroon from the Testors Lacquer paints shot onto black primer, wanted to make sure I got a darker color.

    Hudson for a friend...
    This was a build for a club member a few years back. Don't remember if I had it here but here it goes. I did add a wash to the otherwise boring hubcaps before handing it over to the owner, something to be aware of when putting this baby together.
