Actually, this one I used off the shelf Testors Lacquer spray paints, but I do use an airbrush also. I completely disassembled the figure, removed all pins and wheels, primed all the parts with a lacquer primer then sprayed the metallic red on the body panels and black on the armature. I came back with a silver dry brush on all the armature parts and airbrushed a metallic black fade onto the red body parts then sealed everything with Testors Wet Look Clear Lacquer. Finally I hand brushed a black wash into all the panel lines and hit it with one more clear coat. Oh, also airbrushed the clear plastic with a transparent Testors Model Masters blue acrylic.
Thanks for the compliments gang!
