Aston Martin DB4

Recommended Posts

Looking good. Tamiya silver leaf always looks so nice. How's this paint, any drying issues?

Thanks Curtis!  I've had no drying issues at all!  The paint was dry to the touch after 10-15 minutes, so I plan on adding another coat of paint or two soon.

Finally, some work done on the Aston Martin DB4!  I fired up the paintbooth and clearcoated the Aston and its many parts with Tamiya TS-13 Gloss Clear.  Once this has dried a few days, some polishing and assembly.

More to come...

Thanks Atin!

I have started Bare Metal Foiling the Aston this morning.  At this point, I'm about halfway through foiling this small car.  I still have to foil the front and rear windshield frames and the B pillars

As a line of storms thundered through the area, I sat at my work bench and started working on the DB4 for a little bit.  I added the headlight bezels and the taillights.  Since installing the rear window ruined the Bare Metal Foil on the trim, I figured that the best way around all that was to mask off the trim and paint it on with my Molotow Liquid Chrome pen.  I'll leave this for a day or two to dry.

I am almost done with my Aston Martin DB4.  Just a few little things to add and some touchups and polishing.  Here's a peek at my WIP.

More to come...
