  5. I was finally able to go outside and shoot much nicer pictures under natural light. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
  6. Thanks guys. The interior colors are from flat Tamiya Acrylics, they were airbrushed.
  7. The seats were painted flat red at the start and before applying the piping of course. I grabbed a toothpick and applied very small amounts of crazy glue on the wire first and then went ahead and started pressing it in place slowly and in sections while following the contours of the seats. Make sure the wire is stretched firmly first before applying it. You will surely notice small patches of super glue once done, it's inevitable being that the seat was flat and the glue dries glossy. No need to worry, just lightly add some clear to the seats from a distance. This will give it a slight vinylish look as seen in the pictures. It will tone everything up but make sure you don't go overboard with the clear, you want to achieve a satiny look.....
  8. Thanks guys. The color is black, it was photographed in my light booth but I will have to work with the lighting to see if I can get the right colors. I usually take pictures outside in natural lighting but it's been nasty outside the last couple of days. The texture of the roof was simulated simply by shooting the color far away from the subject; this creates heavy orange peel which is what you should go for when simulating vinyl tops.....
  9. Based on the newly released kit.
  10. Built this one for a club member. Color is Testor's Nassau Blue Metallic with Testor's Wet Look Clear. Didn't like the chrome on the wheels in the kit and decided to Alclad them instead for a more realistic look. I also dropped it down slightly, thought it was a little too high out of the box.

  11. Thanks Gary. I like using flat colors for my base whenever possible. They lay down much thinner and with much less orange peel so the wetsanding process is facilitated. They also preserve the small and subtle details of the body making it even easier when the time comes to add bare metal foil.
  12. All the chrome is Bare Metal Foil. Check out the link for the paint tutorial done for Scale Auto Mag, keeps me from writing too much.... http://public.fotki.com/MCRUZ1/scale-auto-mag-pain/
  13. This model was built for a review in Scale Auto Magazine a few Month's back. Nothing was added, basically an out of box build. Paint is simply Testor's enamel flat yellow as the basecoat and Testor's Wet Look Lacquer clear over it, wet sanded, polished and waxed.
