    Hi Guys.

    I always get bored and so decide to repaint my bios. I enjoy trying different things. It's a great learning process. Some of the paint ups I feel look ok and some I'm just not happy with.
    So rather than start a new thread each time I do a repaint I'm gona just add each one to the same thread as like a running work in progress sort of thing.
    I have to say that I tend to lean towards a clean shiney bio. I find it difficult to get it how I want and therfore more of a challenge.
    Please feel free to leave any comments or advice as they will be much appreciated.
    Thanks.
    C.


    First up... my Porsche. Please let me know what you think?

    Thanks for your comments. Much appreciated.

    To be fair this is the first paint up on the Porsche.
    But my other bios have been painted several times. I enjoy it. I cant just sit there watching the tele etc. Also its cheaper than buying all new ones.
    I recently repainted one of my stunts from super glossy to a sort of weathered brass effect. Getting the old paint off takes the most of the time. I saw Predatrhuntrs huntorial on how to paint with sponges etc and it kicked me off. That huntorial is superb. When I see what other people can do I like to have a go myself. More often than not I fail but I will keep trying.

    This brings back painful memories from when i worked on my P1 stunt. Filling and sanding, filling and sanding, filling and sanding. lol Put the primer on and then found more areas to do. Doh! lol
     
  17. Looking good there Chris.  They're a choir and a half but worth it in the end I'm sure.

    Yeah, they can be hard work but I love doin' them. Even though they all look the same when Ive finished.

    It will be cool to see what you come up with on this one. Your other bios have a very distinctive look to them.

    I'm sure that no matter what you do with it Chris, It will be another one to be proud of.  I still love your Porsche...probably my favorite of yours.

    Dunno mate. Still havent decided if its having lasers or not etc. I'm thinking aluminium?
    A hell of a long way to go yet though. Need to fix the one eye brow, fix the nose and sort / straighten the gab between the eyes.
