I've grown very fond of the older bigger scale cars such as the Kyosho supertens , HPI Super Nitros, and Tamiya TGXs. I purchased this Kyosho Superten Taisan in not so great shape. It looked like it had been painted with a giant paintbrush on the inside and had some kind of black paint on the outside. I decided to try an experiment.... I cleaned and roughed up the outside of the body and masked the windows. I then used Tamiya fine surface primer on the outside... I used 4 coats to get max coverage, then used 4 coats of TS white paint, followed by 3 coats of clear. I then sourced 24 hour of Daytona 911 decals in the appropriate scale from my friend at MCI Racing. I found the correct wheels but didn't like the white. 2 coats of primer, 2 coats aluminum silver for the lips, 2 coats gold for the centers, then 3 coats of clear and I think it turned out pretty good. I've got some sanding and painting to do on the spoiler yet, so that's next. Thoughts?2 Completed....
