    In between coats of paint being applied to the body of D-Rat, I mostly finished the interior and a few scale pieces to go with; a rather dirty RC Jeep with a Spektrum DX4C transmitter.

    Yes it is!




    Some progress on project D-Rat, I am just waiting after the last layer of clear base to cure before the fun really starts.

    What you see so far on the body consists of: grey primer, an opaque coat of Auto-air Pearlized Black, about 6 coats of Auto-air Sparklescent Rock Star Red 2 mixed with 20% of clear base, then 3 coats of clear base, followed by a wet sand and a final coat of clear base.







    After multiple tests, I went with Sparklescent red buffed with clear base to make it semi-opaque over the Pearlized black to get a metallic dark blood red a la Deadpool.

    The Perlized has bluish tones in the flakes and the Sparklescent is straight silver, the combination of the red turned into a semi-opaque over the black turns it less orange than just straight Sparklescent red over primer or over an opaque regular black.

    Next will be applying the stencils, then opaque regular black, remove the stencils, apply Auto-air transparent black to “smoke” the red and finish with a clear coat, either flat or satin.

    Also, on the bench are the inner rear fenders currently primed and waiting for flat black.

    Busy evening yesterday, the stencils I made were weeded and applied to the body, then the process to paint solid black started.





    The plan is/was for a ghost metallic red (under the stencils) against a solid black, but after two thin and uneven coats of black, I kind of liked the look and I decided to stop there and remove the stencils...

    Getting close... Very close... I should start putting the body together tomorrow.





    I still have a couple of engine bay items to finish up, the electronics and the lighting to wire up, and all the on-board scale accessories to sort out, but D-Rat should be ready soon.
