1968 Road Runner

Recommended Posts

Completed a '68 Road Runner today.  I used Pearl-Ex super copper on it, with '70 Cuda wheels/tires and even undercoated it.

Thanks Ray and Patrick.  For some reason I'm stuck on Mopars lately.

I, too, love that color.  It goes so well with those wheels.  I marvel at how many models you create - it seems like every few weeks I'm looking at something new and nice from you.  Your shelves must be overflowing!

I gotta know more about this Pearl-ex. Appears it's just a pigment. What do you mix it with?

Thanks Snake, Nick, Don, Joe, Tom, Dave, Carl, Lee, Marty, Mark, and Christopher.

I use McDonald's coffee stirs - they have a flat end - to measure the amount of Pearl-Ex powder to use.  About 2 stirs 1/4 full does it for me.  So into a medicine pill cup and mix with HOK SG100 about 2/3 full.  That gives me almost a full cup in the airbrush.  Final color greatly depends on the base color.  I use Duplicolor primer in either black, dark grey, light gray, or white.  I have spoon tests for all the varieties I've mentioned.

Beautiful Day 2 build. I like the color contrast between the interior and the outstanding exterior paint. "Show Car" pretty engine compartment.
