Hotshot paint ideas?

Recommended Posts

I'm really enjoying my Hotshot build so far, but am still undecided on the paint...  box art red is always good, but does anyone have a pic or suggestion for another colour? Google has a few - purple, green, white, black...  none of them really convinces me - is red really the best way to go?

I like these!  The dark red one and the blue one especially (which colour is that exactly?)  My Fox will be blue though, so I'd like something different for this...  I quite like metallic orange, but I just did  blitzer beetle in that colour, so maybe shouldn't repeat?  Need to look at painting all the red parts a different colour too...  There aren't many body colours that combine well with a black and red chassis

That’s the same red base with a black backer and a silver backer. The black backer body looks just black on picture but in person, it’s black cherry.

I've seen the Hotshot in many different colors over the year.  Honestly, there are very few colors that don't flatter the Hotshot.  It's hard to go wrong.  For me, I had dreamed of the red Hotshot box art every since I was a youngster and couldn't afford one.  When it was my time to get a re-re, it had to be close to the box art.  ;)

Well done!! It looks unique!!

I finally get a Hotshot which is my dream R/C since I was a kid but no way I could afford it by that time! May I ask you how to paint these colors by order? Is it like PS-18 PS-53 and PS-41 will be the last? How many coating on each spray?  Sorry I used to be just paint in one color as simple as that is but I wish I can hav a body like this

There isn't one of the above I wouldn't be happy with they all look amazing (credit to everyone above👍) I painted this colour by mistake what was in my head wasn't what it turned out but I liked it better which is a first for me! The super hotshot was the first thing I painted at the time with my new spray gun but I put to much metal flake in the gun and it kept on blocking up!

Wow, that looks really nice. Can you tell me what kind of paint that is? To be honest I need the color to paint an Eva 01 model kit I’m doing and that type of color seems to be tough to find!
