That's an impressive paint job!! Great engine detailing, too.

So if everything is paint, no decals, how did you create the water-drop effects on the hood/roof panels? That's pretty neat. 

 

Many thanks, my friend.

Incredibly, water drops were an easier part of this painting.

Just use a spray bottle with water and sneeze the way the drops are to your liking. After that, using the airbrush with low pressure, apply a dark color on one side of the drops and on the opposite side apply a white

Let it dry and then apply the varnish

Like some others have said, I'm not a fan of the L.R. scene, but this is an impressive model. The paint is splendid, the engine bay is nicely detailed. But I think I love the interior.

I admire your abilities and model skills....

Now this is a super cool paint job, and a great build all around. I love the hydraulic stitch box too

OUTSTANDING!!

Man, you made it look REAL!

 I tried building a lowrider and I was pleased with it, until I saw this.

The fine lines are superb. Even the valve covers got the treatment and I love the way you got the design to seamlessly extend from the hood to the dashboard.

Easily one of the best I've seen.

You should post on Layitlow.com

the guys there will go mad for this ??
