Paint work in progress

Post by laneboysrc on Sat 28 Sep 2013 - 10:26

Hi folks,

while waiting for paint to dry I'd like to post a few photos of the various body shells we have been working on lately.

The Delta Integrale body for our DF-03ra has been painted quite a while ago and we have started work on the Tamiya Rally interior. So far we have trimmed it, made a test fit and put some primer on.





Interestingly Tamiya has just re-released this interior! It comes with decals, which were not included in the "old" kit I bought for a large sum in December. The new decals are however very generic and don't match the Integrale decals.



To paint the heads I mounted them on small jars. Since I was not satisfied with Tamiya paints for brush painting, I invested in Citadel paints that are usually utilized by miniature painters. They work much better indeed and are water based.
The two outer heads are from the Rally interior, the head in the middle as well as the grill below is from the Tamiya Golf GTI Mk1 (see below).



Note how smooth the Citadel paint goes on compared with the Tamiya paint I used earlier. Tamiya paints are apparently excellent for airbrushing, but not for traditional brushes.



Close-up of the driver head for the Golf GTI. The helmet was painted with Tamiya TS spray paint.



The heads for the Rally interior. They are larger than the Golf GTI head and have more details, which means they are way more fiddly to paint. I tried to make the co-driver on the left look down onto the rally notes.



The Golf GTI Mk1 has a complicated 4-color paint scheme. We used liquid mask. The black cut marks are done with a permanent marker on the outside, on the overspray film.



This head belongs to the Porsche 956 body we got for the 2nd hand Pan Car we acquired recently. More on that chassis at a later point. The body was a piece of Lexan, so I painted it black and white from underneath as usual. Then a coat of PS55 flat clear on the top, and add details and highlights using acrylic paints. This is the smallest of the figures in the set.



This shell has more than 80 decals. They are not pre-cut, and some of them are quite difficult to apply. Not the easiest body to build.





Notice that the sides are not symmetrical.



Why does he look so frightened? Shocked 



This is another body we finished this week: Datsun 240Z Rally. It replaces the well-worn blue 240Z body that came with our 2nd hand TT01D drift car.



The hood is painted normally with black from the inside, and then after the overspray film is removed PS55 flat clear is applied in a thin. even layer over it for the flat colored look. Looks excellent!



Lights are fully functional as usual on our vehicles Very Happy 







And finally a size comparison between the bodies. The Porsche is actually quite long, with lots of overhang especially in the rear. The wheelbase is only 201 mm, compared to 210 mm of the Golf.



happy building and driving!

Thanks guys,

The Golf is also finished now, hope to have photos up in the next few days.
So far all my builds use the stock color scheme, mostly to match the scale look with the decals. So the color schemes are all courtesy of Tamiya. Very Happy
