lexan paint is expensive.
I use transparent Lexan Paint
and after that I can apply my inexpensive paints.
I always paint the inside.

I was on ebay the other day and found some tape called PolyMode Tape. It comes in A length of 12 Feet and peels into triangular strips for painting Camoflauge. I am painting today and will put some pics up later.

how do you paint the thin silver/chrome lines in between the colored 'spikes' on this body? Or are they an applied pinstripe (if so, who makes it?)? Great job on this body!

I cant get that link to work for me. How about pouring the paint into the body and swishing it around and just pour out the excess.

I'm a scale noob, but on my full size rig, on bare metal I de-grease, apply a rust preventitive like POR-15, prime then paint. On previously painted metal I just sand lightly then paint. Seems like this would be the same for scaled down parts.

I used to use actual petrol in the 80's to strip paint of my lexan shells. It still required a fair bit of scrubbing, but did enable a body to be re-used. Ahhh, those were the days when I was on pocket money lol! Also if you do take this path,do it outside & make sure you wear a mask for the fumes, it takes roughly 30 minutes of scrubbing to strip all the paint off.
