I have finally painted a non-wrecked vehicle for Car Wars. I started with contrast paints, but I really didn't like the result, so I painted over with light coats of acrylic. It was an improvement, but the final model looks quite grimy to my eyes. I guess that's okay, considering the post-apocalyptic setting of the game; these cars aren't supposed to look pristine.
Even so, I want to do better. Luckily, I have 19 more models in this range.
