I was trying a light coat of mirror chrome followed by a purple backer to get a purple tinted chrome but I was impatient and tried spraying it at night outside in the cold. On top of that I dropped the body after spraying it and it got a bunch of cracks in it. The cold made the mirror chrome come out gray. After all that it came out interestingly cool.


At the very back I got a little bit of the tinted chrome look.

Working on a special new "motion paint" material. Should really mess with other racers.

Heh heh

Some really nice paint schemes in here. I've been air brushing for a few months now . I've done a couple SCT bodies with skulls and true fire. I tried to post pics but It says I don't have enough posts for pictures without telling me any specifics. Wanted to share but guess I'll have to just look.

Has anyone used LRP's Nitro Block as a final backing? How has it protected your paint work on lexan bodies?

You should be able to include links to Flickr or other photo storage location? Maybe not. I didn't know they had that requirement for new members. I guess its to make sure your not joining just to spam? Dunno.

This is my 2nd paint job using Galactic Purple as the main paint and this time the color came out fantastic so I have to give it some love here Some rugged lines here and there but nothing major.

AE B6. Done a while ago now but pretty stoked that Andrew Webber had time to paint this for me.



XB4. Borrowed the design from the net, but really like the scheme.
