THE MANX
Posted by BUCKY on Thursday, October 15, 2020 9:43 PM

I built this one a little while back:

Front suspension gave a bit of a struggle, but I got it stuck on there! LOL

Great-grandson (3 years old) says it look like a turtle. I used an onion sack for the paint scheme.

I may try another one, but not really soon!

Thanks for checking it out!

I think this is the first Myers Manx that I've seen in kit form. Very nice work and excellent paint.

This is the AMT recent release. There is another release that is Elvis themed.

Thnaks for the comments!

Really sharp!  I'd like to see how that paint job is done. 

Thanks,

After priming with Duplicolor, I sprayed on the White Lightning:

I then stretched the onion sack over it, and secured it under the bottom:

Then, I shot the gold over the onion sack, and peeled it off to find this result:

Two or three clear coats, and some polish got it to where it is now.

Great thinking out of the box on the paint.  Kind of along the lines of lace painting on 1:1's.

Nicely done.

Thanks, folks! I have some other material in the supply box to try some different looks on future builds. I've seen some really crazy paint jobs on the contest tables.
