Carrera 1/24 GT40 repaint

Postby Dangermouse » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:51 am

Picked up a spare blue Carrera GT40 and decided it needed a trip into the paint shop.

After much deliberating on the livery - I decided on the #7 Graham Hill car from Le Mans 1966 because Carrera doesn't offer it....

Base coat of flat black over the whole body.
Tamiya masking tape for the lines and over the bonnet. I rubbed it down well and brushed a thin coat of clear over the the seams to minimise bleeding.
Clear coat at the end (several) I used a piece of paper held down with blue tac to mask the bonnet when I sprayed the gloss clear as I wanted a matt finish on the bonnet.

I find clear coat over silver one of the hardest things to get right - so far Testors gloss has given the best result - I had run out for this car so it has an acrylic gloss over it.

cheers
