This time painted it in green/black/white combo and shaved some parts to lighten the body.

Just bought this new 98mm Lexus SC430 and painted in my racing colours.

Most time consuming part.....masking the body

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x640q90/539/ZKWemE.jpg (http://imageshack.com/f/ezZKWemEj)

First coat.....my favourite florescent yellow

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x640q90/908/HOUJbV.jpg (http://imageshack.com/f/p8HOUJbVj)

Next....airbrushing the lines with green paint

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x640q90/901/Oo3fKv.jpg (http://imageshack.com/f/p1Oo3fKvj)

Peeling the rear masking tape to lay some under coat...

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x640q90/909/sFetCY.jpg (http://imageshack.com/f/p9sFetCYj)

.....but again I need to mask the yellow paint before laying the base coat

Really like that SC430, and those wheels fit it perfectly. Nice detail painting on the 'L' logos!

Sub'd. Really nice work. How many man hours does each one take?

dameetz

Thanks....I ve never really counted the hours to finish every project that i have done, it depends on my free time actually, some bodies took almost 2 weeks to finish because I m too busy with other comittment, some just took a few days, for example the latest one that I did (SC430) only took 5 days to finish, about half a day everyday spent on it.
