hedotwo Posted May 4, 2020 Share Posted May 4, 2020 Still waiting for side view mirrors (thanks Slusher!) to be placed but this one is finished as far as I'm taking it. First, sorry for the photo quality. I use my iphone and it generally takes pretty decent pix but these are kinda grainy after reducing to 880x600. Doesn't seem to have happened before, but oh well. I'm not really happy with the paint job either. I used Testors Mythical Maroon and, while I like the maroon itself, I was surprised with the amount of gold metallic. To my eyes it's way out of scale to have that much glitter. I resisted the urge to wet sand the mildly rough color coat before applying the Wet Look clear, after reading lots of tips on metallic colors not liking sanding. In hindsight, I think I should have sanded. I'm guessing it might have turned out better. From my experience using rattle cans (I spray maybe 50% of my builds with my airbrush, the other half are rattle can) Testors nozzles spray way too heavy, while Tamiya's cans spray much lighter and finer. Lesson learned. Otherwise, considering the condition of the car when I began I'm pretty happy with adding it to my Pontiac collection.
