Would you be able to do something similar to this on a 1/10 sedan or stock mini-t body? I always thought this was a cool body but my painting skills are limited. They're not half bad but they don't compare to yours yet.

I have never had any luck stripping paint from an old body. I wont strip paint unless it is my own body because the chance of ruining the body is to great.

Catch me in a week or two. I have three bodies here right now with three more on the way. I dont want to get to far behind by taking on more bodies than I can handle.

Dont know what type of flames you are looking for.

Here are a couple examples of some true flames I have done.




Here is a Tribal Flame design I did a few weeks back.


Are either of these designs what you are looking for???

Feel free to PM me. It is much easier to come to one place to answer all questions than to go back and forth from the forums to emails.

As far as the body goes, I honestly have no idea. I have never painted the exterior of a shell before. I am sure I could but I would need to practice since this is a completely different process than that of painting the inside of a shell.

Hey shootpain, seems we are opposites! I seem to know a thing or two about realistic flames on 1:1 cars but I can't do em on the insides of bodies for the life of me lol. PM me if need be we can trade a few tips and help eachother out. BTW this is the last flame job I painted for my stepdad while on vacation up in washington...

Rody, Nick you guys have PM's.

patxeik & benisjamin

There is really no secret to it. The best thing to do is get yourself some plexiglass, coke bottles, sheet glass, etc... anything you can get your hands on and practice.
As far as the step by step goes I am currently working on one. I have a couple of bodies here that are based on some NASCAR themes. 1 or both of those will have some step by step photos with them and a little info about each pic.

Turbocruiser13

That looks sweet. I wish I could say there is a good way to learn to do the flames but there isnt. Again it really is a trial by fire.
The basics of how I do the true flames on the inside of a RC body is:
1) Use transparent or candy paints to lay out the area of the first set of fire licks. Cover the entire area
2) Use opaque white or mix the white with the same candy color and then spray the actual flame licks themself.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all the different colors of flame licks you want. When done back everything in black.

When you apply the second and third transparent colors make sure to leave a small area of the previous color unpainted. This will allow it to have a transition between the multipal colors. Each additional layer you add will usually have more flame licks, with the exception of the last layer. This usually has the same number as the first layer but they are smaller in size so it makes the flames appear as though they are cooling off.

Depending on what color you want your flames start with the lightest color first and then work out to the darkest. As you stated it is just the oppisite of what you are presently doing on the 1:1 stuff.

The only thing I might add is the first layer doesnt need to be real heavy as some of it will bleed through when you do the second and third layers.

rcluke,

Right now I am not excepting anymore bodies. I have several here at this time. I am simply posting the pics for the owners to see how things are going.

2916jr,

I have no idea how marbling is done on a 1:1 car so I cant say if the process is the same or not.

Keep watching I am going to have a few step by steps posted here in a few days/weeks that show some of these processes.
