    Wink Dustmasters Penta body

    A few weeks before RCX my good friend Ivo from Belgium asked me to paint up a shell for him. I finally had an opportunity to do so, and with RCX coming up at that point in time, it would also be a good chance to kill two birds with one stone!

    This body has accompanied me on my trip, it has literally been around the world, and currently it awaits delivery to Ivo in a customs facility in Brussels. I hope it arrives at Ivo's place soon so it can be mangled and abused the way it's supposed to be.

    Anyhow, below the pictures of me slapping on some paint. Same old recipe, masking tape, rattle cans, exacto knife and aerosol cans.

    First off, the roof. The design on it sort of grew as I went.









    Putting a layer of black on it to start.





    And adding a little outline in silver just to make it pop a bit more.



    Peeling the larger surfaces



    Slapping more paint on with every step, at this point it will look messy, but as long as you keep track of your peeled and painted parts you should be fine.



    Roof: done!





    There's a few stripes of Lamé Flake in the white surface, but it only shows in spotlights or direct sunlight, it's hard to catch it in a picture.

    IT's a blend, around the "badge" if you will, it's a blue anodised aluminium, faded into a blue metallic, backed with black. I can get you the numbers if you need them, it's all tamiya. It was the second time I used their anodised colours (first was the champagne colour on the lower part of the red penta) but I'm surprised with how much effect they add compared to for example a transluscent colour.

    Your an alien, I'm sure of it. Never seen anyone pull something like that out of the bag using just rattle cans... EPIC WIN, indeed!
