Here is a peek at two one of one all paint vw buses coming up in the next few days. One is custom mixed pearl blue fade with a touch of candy blue. Tribal flames are candy pagan gold tangerine and red fade over pearl silver to gamma gold base color fade.
The second one has relatively.the same flame colors but with variations of course. The main color however is a deep black with bright blue custom mixed blue flake/sparkle. Veeeery cool color!
These will be ready for sale in a couple days so keep watching for your chance.
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!
Fresh Tribal Flame designs tested out on this one. Has multiple colors of candy and pearls, and some multilayer flames nestled in the middle of roof tribal licks.
Fades from Tangelo Pearl to Tangerine Candy over pearl silver on sides. Top goes from light purple to medium blue candy, to Cobalt Blue candy.
I may be adding some more flames …still mulling it over..we will see. 😉
Well I’m not quite done with it yet, but thought I’d give you a peek at the stretch merc. She has some semi ghosty tribal flames freshly designed I might add! Pearl and chrome base coats for the candy tangerine, red, to purple fade.
I have some ideas for a layer or two of candy pagan gold flames …we will see. But for now..I’ve got some pretty colors to build upon!
More soon 🙂
Ok Chevy fans…heres a WIP look at my first one of these trucks…the 83 Chevy Silverado casting from Hot Wheels. I had a 79, drove for many years, even got married in it!! lol..but thats another story. This one is really spruced up tho..Candy Red Ghost Flames on hood and down upper sides. Black Cherry lower half with Candy Pagan Gold to Tangerine fade. Also on hood there are three layers of flames airbrushed on!! Will be available soon..its got a nice set of rollers btw… 😉

Heres a quick look at a reeeeeally killer led sled Ive just put together (finally). Its a 100% 49 Merc with double candied fade and flames, plus some Majik Blue Pearl licks that were shot, and remasked with a slight offset making some licks appear to have a slight highlight or shadow (depending on available light). A base of candy gold, tangerine, red, violet, to blue candy fade was used for the roof and upper side flames, which were masked and a SECOND (altho light) candy fade was applied..giving it that ‘double’ candied look.
The body received a side window post removal as its only major change (and even thats subtle!). This one was a pain however due to the ‘real’ tail and head lights used in the original version. The headlights could not be removed without destroying them, but the tail lights were saved and reapplied after MUCH (and I DO mean ALOT!) aggrevation due to their size. I actually lost one and had to steal a replacement from another stock cast..but thats ok..when I do that one, it WONT be needing the stock lights! 👿
IF I had not been so happy with the way the paint had turned out..at one point, I woulda just forgot about using the tail lights and started over, filling in/remolding the rear lights area entirely. But..eventually..they made it. Im not totally happy with how far they protrude, but, this is it, and honestly..the paint more than makes up for that!
OH..the front lights are brass brads with the heads machined down to size for the lamps to fit with a slight ‘frenched in’ look.
Here is the official store item link where you will find larger pics and of course have an opportunity to adopt this piece.
