Hi all,

Today I finished working on my Slot.it white kit. The Audi R8C is painted with waterbase Revell paint. The paint was applied with an Revell airbrusch set and the use of a compressor. Masking the whole car was what I found out to be the hardest part of this project. There are not much decals applied, but I like the car this way. It's not perfect, but I am making some progress with every new painting project. Hope you like it.

Greetings,

Firefighter

A very nice piece of work. Nice balance of colour, and nice combination. It looks classey. Well done. This is one of my favourite cars.

Thank you guys. And Graham I have always liked your yellow/green R8. For me it is the ulitmate proof that you can have your whitekit look like it's painting was factory made.

I like the colors too. allthough I would prefer a little green (yayaya.I see the mirrors and side of the rearwing) on the side of the car.

Today I finished my latest relivery project. It' s a Slot.it Mercedes Sauber C9 "AEG" turned in to a "Michelin" livery. It did come out in the German Super Cup of 1987. More photo's can be found here. My weblog is in dutch, but the pictures are not biggrin.gif

LOVE the Audi, your colours are excellent and work really well with the Audi.

I haven't painted a white kit in a while, might be time I think...

Firefighter,

Great work on both cars.

I agree that masking takes the time.

I find, that with careful prep work,the car usually turns out fairly well.

Thanks to everybody for the nice comments!

When I made the Audi some months ago I almost gave up painting it, because the body's rear screwtube pulverized when I took it out it's box the first time. I agree that the Audi was more difficult on the masking side. I found out that the Sauber was more "complicated" on applying decals.

Greetings,

FF

Ironman: The paint itself had some metalic in it I gues. After applying the normal paint, I just gave it a "normal" clear coat to protect the paint and decals.
