Richard, that is gorgeous! I've been thinking to do something like this for a while and this is great inspiration!

You need a color that will accentuate all of that beautiful body sculpture. Dark green may take away from it. Silver, metallic gray, light blue, or a silver with a smoke tinted clear should do it. Maybe a pastel light green.

thnx bob ! (bit late from me oops)

but i put some paint on the hauler ... metallic black .. rattle can from duplicolor .. and the flakes are silver and tiny .. so i'm happy they are great on scale .

you cant see yet on the pic ... just shot that right after the last coat .. so its uber wet ..

already saw it dryes up matte ... i though gloss but no .. maybe its the primer ..

no big deal now i can add logos and last a layer of clear

paint is dry and hard , really weird stuff its so smooth and slippery its almost like buffed paint .. everything slides of ... great !!! never saw paint this smooth out of a can ..
now its dryed up semi gloss and needs clear , the can also says that it needs clear .. also to make the metallic come to life

the metallic flakes > real fine so perfect for the scale .... cant waight to see some clear on it and also get a deep reflective shine in the black

All the Duplicolor stuff does that. Its because it's an automotive lacquer I believe. It sure does lay down nicely though. I think its because it sprays out in a fan shape rather than a cone like most sprays, it's easier to get an even coat.

Looking good Rich.
