'36 Ford Coupe painting project

Postby TuscoTodd » Sun Apr 02, 2017 10:05 am

While waiting on the paint to cure on my other painting projects, I figured I would keep the momentum going by laying down the base colors on another project - this time a DASH '36 Ford Coupe!

I started with a nice white virgin body and after a little prep had this to start with...

I wanted to try my hand at a bit of a fade on this - and considering it is HO scale, I am pretty happy with the blend I was able to come up with using ACE Premium Sunshine Yellow and Orange rattle cans! :D

Decals and detail painting to follow!

Thanks for the kind words guys!
I finally finished her off last night, clearing in the decals and painted details - now to pop in the windows, get it mounted and ready to turn some laps this next week at the track! :D

(for reference - the decals are from Road Race Replicas, the bumpers are painted with Molotow 1mm marker, grill and lights with Testors model paint all cleared in with ACE Premium enamel clear)
