I usually use my air bursh for painting the bodies, as the pressure pack cans( spray cans) tend to release to much paint, leaving a very thick finish, which defeats the purpose of adding all the small details. Small parts like blowers, side pipes, and such, i haind paint with a fine brush, and thinned down paint, so it is not a thick finish. i use a varitey of weathring techniques, from dry brushing, air brushing, and pigment powders both in powder form, and alos in a mixtur eof alcohol. when the alcohol eveporates, it will leave the pigment residue, great for getting color into fine detail lines like door jams and recceses, i use a flat clear on some parts that are chrome plated then paint over that, to get paint to stick, but usually will strip all chrome by putting parts in a bag, then spraying easy off oven cleaner in the bag, let it sit for an hour, no more chrome plating, all gone.

thanks. yeah it was your having the interior in a non-painted body with tanks in there already, but no wheels, that got me thinking about the process and what steps went where.

I do it like biolumen suggests, strip body of existing paint, then prime and paint body separately with cans (not as good as airbrush but I don't have that gear), while working on the chassis and wheels I select, then paint/mod the interior or glass as needed, and the gas tanks, then when all is dry, assemble all parts with screws if I'm lucky, or glue if I'm not, and add on the extra items that need to be affixed after assembly (engine out of hood, sidepipes, tank caps).

I'm gonna try green stuff putty here in my next Interceptor and see if I can't get a front end done right and fender flares too.

Nice start. If I could afford another Interceptor model kit, I'd attempt this in 1/24.

i was thinking the same thing last night, i have two of them now i started, one is the RW version, with the uodated bare bones interior, the other is the first re-lease with the resin conversion to do the Mad Max version, both need to be finished, but i wanted to try to find two more, so i build the bat car and landua, just way too munch money for them these days.

Excellent work. 1:64 is a tough scale to get accuracy.

What mods are you doing to the bases ?
