Then in amongst all the painting struggles with the Audi, I shot the Chevy with Tamiya Matt Black, and then to remain sane I Bare Metal Foiled it...fast, fast FAST, but it didn't come out too bad....
So there is lots to do here, but it will be an distraction while I work on the Audi, which is a good kit, but not an easy build.
Back In AudiLand, I decided to use acrylic, Jacquard products, a longtime favorite of mine, for the color coat, and mixed up a really nice Silver Pearl using their ready to airbrush paint, along with PearlEX: Silver and Pearlwhite.
But! To save time I didn't use 2 part clear. I just didn't want to muck with all the mixing, all the cleaning all the poison etc. Instead I used a rattle can clear coat I have been messing with for non-model car related crafts, Rustoleum's Triple Thick Glaze.
And the chassis/engine is pretty much done, other than some decals and other finish work....hard to see in this pix, but as always the PearlEX came out great, a sort of ghost silver when in sunlight.
And here's the chassis/interior.....
So this copming month, maybe I can get something done? Who knows?
