Not much time last few days, but had a chance to work on the wheels.
Wanted to detail the CB Design wheels to increase the scale detail. I chose to model it after the Basset wheel that Bill and other teams used in that time period.
Shotgun Dave gave me a paint tip and I decided to try his way. I used an old Sharpie marker and dipped the end in some Apple Barrel acrylic paint.
Then mounted the wheel on the razor and turned it to around 3 volts. Not very fast, but just enough.
Lightly held the marker to where I wanted the line and it worked great. I gave it 2 coats.
I painted the "lug nut" dimples that are machined into this wheel with a toothpick and Testors silver enamel. Since it was a little too much, I used a Q-tip soaked in 90% Alcohol and scrubbed the surface. It removed the excess paint that came over the edges, but left the dimples painted.
The used our good old Toothpick Tire Trick
to do the "lettering".
Not bad. Adds just a bit more to the appeal for me.
Thanks again Shotgun for the paint technique advice.
