Realistic flames on Legends Body
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys,
First time posting one of my bodies, a fellow at work has a son who races Legends at the local dirt oval. As a Christmas present I painted this body for him to replace what remained of his old one. He is in love with the "realistic flames" so it had to have them, and I figured the color contrast would make it easier to drive on the track. The paints are all faskolor/createx with the candies being made with Future, with a touch of adhesion promoter added. Simple masking and a painting time of about 2 and a half hours if you include masking and trimming out the body. The Grille was outlined with a pearl silver and backed up with a dark grey. Enjoy!

RE: Realistic flames on Legends Body
Not bad. What kind of paint did you use for that?

Createx opaques and pearls, the candy colors were made with Future as the base adding createx colors as the pigment. Auto-Air adhesion promoter was also used. This was my first attempt at the "real fire" look. This is a racing car so I wanted the fire to be very bright and contrast so he could tell the direction of the car quickly without having to focus on it.
