I'd like to share w/ you guys my first mini-z paint job. This is my signature color scheme that I used when I was a 1/8 Off-Road Racer :-)

Keep in mind that this is the first time I paint a mini-z and that I'm not a good painter :-) It still have to be completed but I hope you guys enjoy it:

thats a really deep looking paint job :)

I'd love to be able to paint, give me hope and tell me it was spray cans and not an airbrush.

You have hope! it was Tamiya Spray Cans :-) I can't airbrush either :-)

Thanks all you guys for your comments!

For a 1st timer, that is really good out of a spray can!
IMO, I don't want to spend too much dedication to making a homemade paint job & just get heck through out the months of racing.
I always can replace an ASC and love the real replica like your collection.

Wow, well done! No way I did that well on my first Mini-Z paintjob, I had to sand and resand till I got the gunmetal to not bubble. :p Your Enzo looks excellent!

I have to admit that the end result came out to be better than i could ever thought :-) Even with the minor faults here and there.

I don't even want to race it anymore :-) Thinking about keeping it for posterity, maybe I will do another one to race :-) lolololol

Very good paint job, Alex!
What's the original inspiration behind the paint scheme? National flag?
You should use white, red or black wheels too :D
Black Autoscale FXX wheels are very nice btw! black wheels with red strip outline, perhaps a good fit?;)

And a lot of patience for the masking :D
