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 doozy!



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 desired effect.

Thanks to Wings n Things at Gladesville for the supplied model.
