This is the last one of the blue set. I discovered an issue with the paint when I photographed it the first time. If you want to see the al the places you goofed, Make some good quality photos and display them on a 32 inch monitor. It will show you things that you can't see in the shop.

As with the others, I made this one from MDF. Sprayed some primer on it to seal the MDF and painted the body with some Behr Oops paint from Home Depot. I added a little FlowTrol to the paint to help it flow better. These are brush painted except for the primer.  The exhaust pipes and wheels I painted with flat acrylic craft paint. The hub are metallic gold craft paint with clear shellac on them.

I don't think I'm going to use the black acrylic paint again without some sort of top coat. As you can see in the photos dust and ither small particles seem to be attracted to the flat black paint adn it will mark other acrylic paints. I need to take som photos of a marred toy and post them. I'm guessing its the pigment they use it's almost like they use charcoal.
