Here is a killer VW Drag Bus done with a combination of flames and colors which cant be matched! First run mask designs plus loose mask airbrushed ghost flames! This is a ONE OF ONE creation with candy and pearl colors faded together seamlessly. The multilayer flames ghost out and the candy.fade flames glow with color.
Want to own it before it hits the store? Hit me up!
GEEZ…didnt think I was ever gonna get a chance to work on these again!
Between health issues and car stranding me then subsequent diagnosis/repair that have been plaguing me recently…I just did not know if I would make headway on these again. But here is a rare shot of the first flame licks. Now keep in mind, everything under the masked areas will be black. Ive lightly sprayed a custom pearl blue over the top then added first flames in custom medium metallic grey. Next layer will be brighter silver or chrome. Then I’ll unmask and coat with candy blue…or thats the plan right now.
Have to work in the wee hours because of the heat here lately too. But..thats the least of the hurdles of late.
Anyway..enough whining..lol..more painting!
Hope to have these and more done this week..we will see!
Just put the last layer of flames (4 total) on this 1 of 1 VW drag Bus! Needs details and it will be ready for clear. 100% Paint btw with BlackCherry Pearl HW logo and two tone side/nose flames! Coming soon!
Coming up soooooon! Spectraflame Deep Blue passion/merc with two layers & colors of candy flames! Detailed base..head AND tail lights painted on..white wall RR’s!
Here’s a peek at the stretched merc coming up. This is post clear stage as all moving panels had to be removed or risk bridging gaps…which is not a good thing! So now…the task of sanding/polishing begins. Followed by assembly. Im looking at several days before its done…but…with any luck and no sand thru incidents…she will be ready sometime, late, this coming weekend. Stay tuned!!
Here are some better pics of the multilayer flame Candy-fied Custom Convoy! Major details…all lights..black washed grill, engine, steps, bumpers, mud flsps, fuel tanks. Drilled exhaust stacks and realistic “scraped” 5th wheel trailer hitch. Redline Real Riders all around…one of one!
This beauty has several subtle fades with multiple colors and layers of candy and pearl colors. Tribal flames on top, nose, and sides. Multilayer candy pagan gold traditional flames on lower sides. One of one with detailed lights and logo. RRs up front with sanded tread rears. All with white letter Goodyears!
Ok…here is a final peek/first look…fully assembled Blue Blazes Silverado 4×4!
More to come!
Think its done except some details…will see while I get some others ready. 4×4 chassis.
