Default Cobras can come in pearl blue too




http://s452.photobucket.com/albums/q...bra-Z-V1_1.jpg endings 1-16

Basicly its my experiment with pearl blue testors lexan body paint/spray, using an ultra-light body like Cobra on my MA to bring its weight down, and lastly improving my MA's handling due to lack of a top weight like a roof w/ glass.

Hooks were not glued in because I will race this thing and they'll bust in first 10 seconds.

I plan on adding 2 lime green stripes to mimic the original look to my liking. I also plan on spraying enamel clear coat when all is said and done to preserve it as best I can(and hopefully not fk up the paintjob that way).

Looks cool. Your Cobra could be polished to get the glossier look, but the quality is great none the less. Nice job.

maybe after you finish up the stripes, give it a nice clearcoat like they use on autoscales. buff and polish, and it'll be as shiny as an autoscale

YEa, I'm considering doing that. My only question is whether or not enamel clear coat will work well with acrylic stripes and this lexan blue.

This is one of the nicest Mini-Z white to color bodies I've ever seen. The blue is fantastic, and it must be kick *** to see on the track.

Stripe adds my color combo and track visibility. Let me ask all of you this- stripe color aside, do you like the position and the fact that its only 1 stripe?

I could always add some basic shapes, just a matter of what exactly?

Side note, since I fixed my MR15, this bod on my 15 weighs a mere 165g RTR.

And NOW its complete w/ enamel gloss coat:





Acrylic silver and lime ran a little due to gloss coat, so now I'll be careful when using enamels and acrylics together(thought that would happen, but testing beats guessing).

I also think that look-wise, it was better more dull, but tell that to other cars on the track

I'm tempted to make my S2k into a rood down but I'm worried about messing it up or making it look dumb since you'll be able to see the inside. Nice job~!
