Another in the Hot Rod Freaky Ford series. A lavender and metallic purple paint scheme. The paint is Behr Oops paint form Home Depot I get for $0.50. When ever I'm in the store I walk by the paint department to see what they have. At first I grabbed everything but soon realized that I would wind up with a garage full of paint if I wasn't more selective. Now I only buy the bright colors and prefer the exterior paint/primer. I find that it covers much better that the interior paints.

Thanks John,

It's slowly improving. These paints are a lot different than auto paints I learned to paint with years ago. It's been a real learning experience.

Bob are you using your air brush for these paint jobs or just brushing them on. I've been using mostly krylon.   I haven't tried the air brush yet.

These are a mix.

Body
  • Primer is rattle can auto primer leftovers
  • Color is Behr Acrylic house paint applied with an airbrush
  • Top coat is Rus-Oleum Tripple Thick Glaze from a rattle can

Exhaust and hubs are brushed on acrylic craft paint top coated with clear shellac also brushed on.

Wheels are brushed on amber shellac.

I might wind up doing it all with an airbrush. but I need a good spray booth. I think air brushing is the way to go for painting toys but it's a pretty steep leaning curve and if you don't have any of the equipment the equipment the buy in can be cost you a bit.

Airbrushes give you precise control over the paint you are spraying opposed to rattle cans which spray what they spray. You can get airbrushes that you can spray one drop of paint through.
