Michelin Mercedes Sauber C9

New project completed, Michelin Mercedes Sauber C9

Kyosho Sauber C9 unpainted body
Krylon Fusion Patriotic Blue
Tamiya flat black
Tamiya Flat Red
Tamiya flat yellow
Tamiya clear yellow
Testors Steel

For this one, I decided to try my hand at weathering. Since I race all my painted bodies, why not start off with a worn and raced look that will age well over time. I got all the base paint down then multiple rounds of dry brushing black and silver to get it to the point i'm happy with it.

I'm not sure how well the photos turn out but it looks how I imagined it would in hand.

Really nice, especially the rear end / undercarriage area and the exhaust ports on the side. What kind of paint are you dry brushing with, the Tamiya? what kind of brush?
