Welcome! I always like the bright yellow livery of the Pennzoil TF dragster.

Thanks guys   The color was Tamiya Lemon Yellow   X-8  thinned with Tamiya reducer X-20A   The pictures show it slightly darker than it actually is.

So you did this with Acrylic paints... What did you clear it with?

I was trying a few things around the time I built this, but I'm pretty sure I used DuPont A7480S clear door jam Acrylic.   It works great except  1 It is really only suitable for spraying with a mask  2  it drys so hard it's hard to polish  You get a great shine but you really have to apply a lot of pressure.  I also use future a lot and get similar results but without the downsides.  I've  heard of future yellowing but that  has  not  been my experience, although my models never see sunshine or fluorescent  lighting  Now all LED
