Post pics of your fave paint jobs!

Recommended Posts

This is not mine but made by a modeler who's work I've admired since I was a kid.   His name Kunta on another forum.

I'd post my favorite paintjob from my own personal work which is on a 71 'cuda, but those pictures that were uploaded on an old forum seem to have gone missing after all these years.  I'll have to take it out and take some new ones sometime.

Haha no worries!  Thanks Kevin, I'm sure you'll do the Daytona justice when you build yours.

These are some of my own favorite colors.

I've always loved the many different aquas & corals from the late '50s & early '60s.

1964 Pontiac "Sunfire Red" is one of my all time favorites.

This is probably my favorite in my collection so far.

Not necessarily because I think the paint is perfect, but more because I like the overall combo.

This is one that I did this past week. It is slowly becoming one of my favorites. Im going back to work on my XJ220 kit and I wanted to try and replicate Monza Red. It's a really intriguing color as it changes shades depending on the lighting. I think I got it pretty close. This tamiya lacquer clear red, over mica red, over gloss black. TS-13 as the clear coat. Under direct sun and lighting the paint does appear a little bright. However the 1/24 model doesn't have the luxury of the 1:1 size and curvature so it would naturally look a little brighter in my opinion. What do you guys think? Pretty close?

It’s great to see so many well done models! Sometimes its hard to tell from the 1:1.  Here’s a few of my favorites. A few fogging paint jobs and T.D.’s Vette. And my “paint chip code Cuda”

Decent flames at hood and fender. The color was mixed by itself.
