Now that's a great color! Wht paint did you use?

And those wheels, are they Smoothster wheels?

Nice car!!!

Sorry for the very slow response I do not usually look back at the older posts. Just looking today and saw this. The color is plum crazy. PPG base with a urethane clear. The clear I use is Sherwin Williams HPC 15 clear. It’s like water. Not big and heavy like most urethane clears. The wheels are the smoothster wheels! Sharp eye sir. Hope this helps.

Built many years ago... 1970 Plymouth.  These are not decal flames.  I computer created the paint masks in two slightly different sizes, one for the red outline and one for the top flames which are a yellow and orange fade.  All air brushed with House of Kolor paints, topped with a crazy pearl shimmer clear all over a custom metallic maroon mix. sOo3Oa861VX9GjE1BlLPWW_QoYs0_jwwK38_fleJnPk7vdEalaBTB1vT7An6OweUYnWcpSNLNgQtMJAh

This is the only paint job that I've done that I would call perfect. It'll probably never happen again. But, it happened once.

OK, I have to admit, my favorite paint jobs belong to my "Best Man", Rockin' Rodney Rat (RRR)! -KK

A nice, slick, shiny paint job is a Lot of work, but to me it's the most rewarding aspect of model building...... Couple of years later, and this is still one of my favorites...

Not done yet but did paint my turbine car. It’s the brightest model in my collection.
