Here is one for Al Huffman It’s a Car!

I heard you wanted to see more car stuff. I am experimenting with Tamiya TS17 Gloss

Aluminium, TS Candy Lime Green, and Testors 1113 Dark Metallic Green on a very inexpensive Lindberg Chevy. This is really a (how much Future floor wax does it take)? to get a deep shine. The Lime Green was just misted from the lower part of the body for a highlight. There was a fad a few years back where guys were painting the (just two colors) hot rods. No chrome basics. I will have to re- scribe some areas, but I am having fun.

Sorry if the pics are a bit fuzzy. But you get the basic idea.

  3. Thanks for posting this, Steve, it looks interesting, maybe it’s too late for this build, but Tamiya also do a spray can TS65 Pearl Clear which might be useful………

  4. Awesome paint job!!! That is some fine Detroit steel eye candy!!!

  5. First time on the site today & what do I see: a nice shiny automobile. I like that Steve. I assume this is Lindberg’s reissue of the 1/32nd Pyro kit.
    You do have a nice gloss here. How many coats of Future are on it & do you apply it with a brush?

  6. CA Steve,
    George Barrister would be in awe of this. Love the paint scheme.

    I meant Barris

  8. I knew that. Now relax Frank. Breath in threw the nose and out threw the mouth. I think I spelled Threw wrong, Oh well..
    have a great night.
