    Zed..that is like the coolest build of yours yet...that paint is fucking fantastic!



    I have all OT cars..so Il only show the bricks I painted..lol

    Here is a before and after.

    I used craft acrylics, I first started with some airbrushed sienna's and umber colors, I then took dullcoat, put a few layers on, then let it dry.

    Then a thin white skim coat of white paint with a sponge, and applied it all over till the mortar was white, I let it dry up a bit then took some water on a paper towel and scrubbed off the remaining white on the high points, it did run through to the bare brick but this aged white from the paint and blended in.

    And speaking of 57 Fords, here's my rendition of a Fairlane I painted to resemble a Club Victoria. This is another Modern day "Vintage" club racer. Old body slammed over a more modern tech chassis. Chassis came from one of those re-issue Model King kits, I think it was the 72 Torino. Since it had a leaf spring rear it would be incorrect for a NASCAR ride, so I used that chassis here. Roll cage partially scratched and moved around to fit the body, Wheels from Fred's Resin Workshop, Tamiya paint and my decals!
