This one came in the mail yesterday. It was a gold promo that need to be restored. I thought Testor's Root Beer would be the perfect color. I also added 4 coats of Testor's Wet Look Clear. Also tinted the windows with Tamiya's Clear Blue. BMF and The Detailer Black Wash to complete the look.

Hope you like it.

Al, you have another winner there. I really like how you give the glass just the right amount of tint. Is that right out of the spray can?

Jon, I only use spray cans. This easiest way to do the tint is to spray one light coat from right to left and one back again and your done. Always spray the inside of the glass.

Hope this helps.

Wait a minute Al. You paint all coats of paint in under 3 minutes ????? Thats amazing. Most of us take days at least to do a body. You must have the color in one hand and the clear in the other one. No matter how long it takes you they always look great.

Wowser . I don't go here much . The name caught my eye . She's a beauty . I takes me months to paint a Model . I did a restoration , clean up , detail out on an Orange '73 Dro . I took me a week to coax back the Firemist Red paint and final wax it . It was in a smoking enviroment . You sir are a Craftsman . It looks quite 1:1 . Just right and I want one like it . This is why we build models IMHO . . Thanx ..
