Default New body....

Thought i would give some before pics, then some finished pics when ive painted it. Its a HPI Porsche Cayenne and its going to be black/yellow. I have made some stencils to help me get the result i want and tested it on a spare piece of shell before i go ahead and paint the whole thing.

Shell and stencils :






Test mask applied and a few coats of black paint to check for leaks in the stencil :



Mask visible from other side, no sign of leaks.



Mask removed ready for the star colour to be added :





Looks rather well i think

Will update progress as it happens, i know its not one of these fancy art brush jobs but i thought it might look pretty good for a can job ( especially with my paint skills consisting of 0 )
