|Mustang Mach III Concept Car
I originally thought I would paint this car an off white, although this was not consistent with the original show car, which was red.
Since the kit was molded in red, I needed to seal the plastic so the red would not bleed through over time. I read about using silver
paint as a barrier is such a situation. Over one coat of white primer I airbrushed Tamiya Gloss Aluminum and it looked quite nice.
This paint seems to have a bit of 'grain' to it, even using an airbrush. After practicing on some spare parts, I covered the silver
with White Pearl, which smoothed out the 'grain' of the silver, lightened the colour and gave a kind of ghost white effect. Three
coats of clear were followed by a minor polishing.
The rest of the model was built pretty much out of the box, with the notable exception of lowering the ride height, especially in the
