  1. Thanks, Yes, the previous pic is with the clear coat applied
  2. OK, I've started again, and have gone for a simpler design using vinyl instead of attempting mask and paint, perhaps a little too ambitious for my first attempt. The blue is a mix of blue and metallic silver paint from Aldi, then the vinyl applied, then a few coats of gloss clear. The wheels are straight up gold from Aldi. Now I'll just wait a few days and then reassemble the car.
  3. Well my masking failed because the vinyl I used was too sticky and I couldn't get it off without damaging the blue or the white paint, back to the drawing board...

  6. Thanks Matt, it a jag, so naturally, I'm going to paint it blue
  7. I got a new toy for father's day, an Aldi airbrush kit, so I decided it was time to do my first livery re-paint. It's a Jaguar XKR GT from the first Scalextric Digital kit I bought a number of years ago: Stripped the old livery by soaking in methylated spirits. Primed with Humbrol acrylic pressure packed primer and ready for paint.
  8. Well said, I find slot car racing much more fun when there is no scoring/championship/sheep stations at stake.
  9. Some pics I took of the finished product: Thanks Shadow_Rusty and Bob, this means a lot to me. MB
