This was supposed to be a simple project that went a little bit further that it should have. (story of my life, lol)

I just wanted to try a new masking method for flame jobs. Then I decided to brake up the hood, so machined my own aluminum air cleaner hats. The suspension is modified Aluma Coupe and the wheels are from the Smoothster kit. The front tires came from the Aluma Coupe and the rear ones are from a Tamiya F40, but they have been narrowed.

The paint is some blue nailpolish. The flames are all painted and for them were used two different whites, two different yellows, bright orange and two different reds - all decanted from Tamiya spray cans. Everything was covered in 2k clear. I showed the model at Overland Park this year, so I thought it was cool to make a Kanzas registration plate with Heartland in it.

Great job. The blue and the flames go together well. Know what you mean about a simple project getting out of hand. Simple can be as bad as the word free. Sometimes free ends up costing one in the long run.
