What Did You Accomplish Today? (Model Car Work)


Recommended Posts

Just finished polishing this one.  It’s molded in red, and bled through in a couple of areas, but I think I can live with it.  Still needs some detail painting, but it’s getting really close now.  
Uh oh.  I better find an excuse to shelve it pretty quick, or I’ll break my streak of not finishing builds.🤔

Here’s a sneak peek mock up.

Revell Trabby 601, work up to yesterday, had to go into Oxford for new Doc Martin shoes!

Looks like a really fun project!

 

The weather is really turning fast here.  So I’m trying to get at least one more paint job done before it’s too cold to shoot outside.  I finished the color coats on this one today.  I really need about two more weeks of good weather (doubtful) to get decals on and then shoot some clear coat.  So it may or may not get cleared yet this year.  Time will tell.

That's a Really nice bronze! Mind if I ask what paint it is?

Hey thanks!   It's Testors Extreme Lacquer Bronze straight from the can.   Sprays a little weird.   As I was shooting it,  I swear I could see metal flakes bouncing off the body and into the air.   But it came out fine.  That's the second time I've seen something like that from extreme lacquer.

You weren’t seeing things, whenever I use that metallic paint, my booth is covered in flake….

 

sweet paint job by the way, color really looks good on that body.

I think I’ve shot five or six different colors from that line.  But the first time I  really noticed this was a week or two ago using the inca gold.
