Matt's First Re-Paint

Recommended Posts

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.

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...

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.
