Built this in the late 90's, early 2000's. Painted it with wood stain! AMT's kit.

Beautiful paint and chrome.

Any reason you chose to try stain?

The look is well done. The "stain" paint is surprising. Chrome outside adds a lot and interior is realistic. Very nice.

Temporary insanity, lol. I did it 2 times, this, and a 70 Challenger. What a pain. It wanted to pool and fisheye, so I had to spray in VERY light coats, and it never really dried, so had to cover in 5 or 6 coats of clear. Just a experiment to match the colors I wanted.

Nice job MP. BMF looks good.

I'm interested.... how do you use wood stain for the paint?

I just realised this is an old build from more then 16yrs ago, wow has this ever held up well.

I would be interested in knowing your technique for using wood stain too.

Thanks. It was a non grain raising stain, I used a airbrush, and literally just barely misted it, over many coats until I got the color, then cleared it at least half a dozen coats, that's all I remember.
