😊 Nothing on the market as narrow as I have had made up. This stuff is literally narrower then a bank card is thick. 😊 Or have I missunderstood you? 😊

While I have your attention Gary. Seeing as you are a master brush painter (your figure work is amazing) can you recommend a brand for high quality fine detail brushes in the 00-01 range.

Thanks Mike!

First colour down.
My limited experience with Fluorescent colours shows here. This stuff is super tranlucent and requires multiple layers to build up the right shade. It bleeds like a stuck pig. I'll have a few spots to wet sand before I mask the pin strips, oh well all part of the learning.

The black might be down this week.

You might struggle to find something as thin as that actually. I always use Windsor and Newton series 7 miniature brushes Curt. They are strides ahead of any others I've tried as far as quality is concerned. Properly cleaned and looked after they will last for years. If you're struggling to find them let me know and we can sort something.

I have 0.4mm tape from Curt,it's tiny. he reckons this stuff is only 0.1mm.

How it's not going to be twisted or broken, or even visible to men over 50 without an electron microscope I've no idea..lol

Thanks Gary, I start with your link.

Shay, I have on a pair of 4.25 glasses and some of those jewellers magnifiers when I work with this stuff. Lol

The Batmobile from the '89 movie, - Page 6 50283314 Egads, talk about complex painting.

The work on the body looks awesome. Are you using transparent Createx paints? I used those primarily as overcoats to alter the overall look on certain parts. One thing I learned is that letting even thin coats dry completely before proceeding is important for two reasons, the first being that if the first coat is even a little wet there might be 'overlap edging' which is difficult to cover up. The second is that the transparent paints can 'change' as they dry so what looks like a nice saturation alters as it dries, usually making it look less saturated.

That pin striping tape is insane - I recall a past build where you were using similar stuff and, then as now, my eyes crossed in sympathetic reaction just looking at the photos.

As for brushes - for really fine brushes I go to a local place called Opus Art Supplies as their selection of detail brushes is bigger (and, sigh, more expensive). Currently I have Robert Simmons and Princeton brushes in the kit - 10/0 and 15/0 size grades (I've seen 20/0 brushes but these can be ridiculously expensive). They're made from natural fibres, sometimes sable, and can give a really fine line as long as the tip isn't frayed.

Looking forward to the continued evolution and development.

Not much to post up picture wise. Just working on the masking.

Hi guys,

I have managed to get the pin strip masking and some paint started. Masking the pin strips sure was a challenge. Next will be a full coat of black. I have decided against the gloss black matt black checkered design.
Instead I have settled on two different colour shift paints, and the checked pattern.

That is looking seriously good Curt, I agree about not using a gloss finish.

Awesome work! The colour combo reminds me of corals or jungle flora. Can't wait to see the further development.

You need to use that effect on another build. It looks like hot lava or molten metal. You have some awesome body work on this one.

David, Kats, Shay, Al, Mike, thanks very much guys.

Thanks Gary, you've misunderstood 😊. I want to 'bury' the checker pattern with multiple clear gloss coats of holographic clear over entire the shell.  

Mitch, thanks man. My thoughts exactly, I have a side build going on that I will use the burning ember/molten/lava look on.
It should be wicked. Lots of ideas swirling around on how to do it.

Well this has taken a turn for the worst 😠.

In all my years of building and painting I have NEVER had an issue with fish eyes in my paint. This paint job has an accumulation of fish eyes that could be called a school of fish eyes. I know what causes fish eyes in general but this is ridiculous. I must have washed my hands in oil or silicone before I did all the masking.

I am really hoping the two wet layers of polyurethane I laid down will allow me to wet sand them out. If I can't wet sand them out the checkered pattern might be a moot process.

Grrrrrrrrr. The Batmobile from the '89 movie, - Page 6 1757741307
