Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Tribute Pace Car

While I'm not really a Nascar fan, I can appreciate the eye catching livery they carry. When the Camaro was released I happened to catch this livery and was immediately drawn to the sheer vibrancy of the colors. This is the first body I think I used 6 spray paints on top of the other paints. All body color is paint and only used the decals for the sponsors and graphics/logos.

For sequencing, I started with brightest color (yellow), then proceeded thru the colors in order of the stripes with red being last and black to top off the body panels. Detailing was done with the Gundummarker and Molotow pen. I added the traditional Nascar yellow stripe on the wheels to top it off.

Wow! I bet that looks amazing in person. Not that it doesn't look great in pictures, but paint vs. decals is one of those color gamut things that I just know that pops in RL in a different way.

Amazing work.
