Hi James!

The fun part is you don't have to choose LOL! Thanks for the comments.

A very impressive and varied collection. Im impressed with your build quality and jealous you got so many built. 😁

My favorite is the gold roadster. I love the subtle flames. Could I ask how you did them?


Hi Jeff!

Thanks for the compliments.

As to the flames, I used Tamya's LP Clear orange, shot with my airbrush over a Lazy Modeler mask. The effect was great, but upon clearing over the flames, the clear accentuated their contrast with the base color, which was contrary to what I was looking for. Too dark...

So, I just dusted the sides of the body, over the flamed section, with the same Tamya's metallic gold spray-can lacquer that I painted the car with. It "buried them", and I got the "ghost" effect I was looking for.
