First a motor bike, now
a drag car!
Again I have decided to
try a non-military subject but don't panic, this will be the last for
quite a while.
It is nice to paint
something with a glossy finish from time to time, and this one is a
Revell's 1941 Willys
Gasser (kit #2350) was built straight from the box except for the
addition of spark plug leads, harness seat belts from scratch and clear
windows. The kit did supplied red windows for some strange reason!
I did not paint or
decal it per the instructions. I wanted my kit to look like something
that might have run on the street in the 1950s or early 1960s.
The model was sprayed
using my usual Aztek A470 airbrush loaded with Gunze acrylics mixed with
multi-purpose automotive thinners. The auto thinner is one of the
factors that helped achieve the smooth, high gloss finish.
The colour was Gloss
Red as a base coat, followed by mixing metallic red, clear red and gloss
clear, then spraying this concoction onto the model until I had the
Wings n Things at Gladesville for the supplied model.
