Just finished this for a customer and thought someone might like to see it.
It is a Ted "Sundance" Coates replica paint job of the car that was featured on the cover of Car Model Magazine. Lot of steps needed to paint this body and I think the customer will be VERY pleased with how it came out.
Enjoy!

I just finished this car along with 3 other paint jobs for a customer out of Germany. If the customer says it's ok, I will post them too but until then....

This car I built/put together for my daughter so she would have something fun to play with instead of wrecking my cars. The chassis is a Flexi of undetermined make, steel rails with aluminum body mounts. Motor is a Mura GP15.

Body is an Outisight piece but I don't know the name. (Ordered quite a few from Ron for the shape and not the name) The idea was that it would be retro enough, mid 70's, to be cool but with more current chassis parts and pieces. Body is .015 so it can take a little abuse. Have not yet received the wing set from Parma, however the wings... will be cut down slightly to look more like something from the mid 70's. (I think)

Kellie loves Horses and has three.... along with a Husband, a dog, three cats, three pickups and a bunch of chickens. (NO, they don't live with me!) That is why I choose to incorporate a horse graphic into the body paint.

Jeremy, her Husband, will get a car to (but please don't tell him) which will be pretty much a clone of hers except for the paint.

The original was in the April 1973 issue of Car Model.

Let's Go Racing with Lee Gilbert and Friends, including a photo of Lee and Donna on the cover - plus the Coates body of course.

Jairus, there's not too much demand for these later issues of Car Model, you should be able to find one pretty easily on ebay.

I received permission to post these on Slotblog but the customer has asked to remain anonymous. These are not perfect and I may be wrong on some of the details but keep in mind that I painted these using little 3.5 inch black and white pictures in a magazine!

These bodies are NOT for eBay, nor am I building any more pieces for auction. As it turns out there is just not enough money in it to justify the time spent.
The pieces sold prior were simply in order to make enough extra cash to attend Konvention. So... I probably won't be at Buena Park this year unless something drastically changes in the next few weeks.

Nice looking bodies Jairus! I especially like the Brady Dynamic Porsche. This was one of my favorites in the late 60s & early 70s. Pattos does a pretty good repop of the Dynamic coupe but I don't know if the open cockpit version is available. When airbrushing bodies are you using laquer-based paint or an acrylic? Except for two bottles of Alclad II, I dumped all my laquer three or four years ago. :)

Sorry to hear you make to the Konvention :cry: . I am looking foward to meeting you and many other of the artist that post thier work here as possible, I would have liked the opportunity to thank you in person for the inspiration you have given not only me but a host of others on this board :up: :up: .
The memories of myself attempting to copy the latest cars out of Car Model or Model Car Science magazines are brought back every time I see one of your recreations posted here.

I think you do excellent work, Jairus. Dont listen to the naysayers, some people will never understand art. :shock:
Your work inspired me to buy a better airbrush, and I am going to get a gravity feed one also. I dont think you need to worry about competition from me! Not yet anyway :mrgreen:

Jack, wait until they are finished, I only managed to get the first step done today on the lettering! Some of the bodies will require more than a few days for lettering before I shoot the color. I will post pictures of all completed body paint IF customers allow it, and site administrators don’t mind. Some of my customers do not want me to post pictures and wish to remain anonymous. (I don’t know why either)

I currently have 9 bodies on my dining room table that I am painting for other people.
Here are three of them that I have finally finished for three different customers. As usual the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Here's the third body. It's a MAC 312 Ferrari... yes, I know that the years are off but that is what the customer wanted!

Hi Jairus,
Cool paint! That M.A.C. Porsche body was painted for me by the founder of Outisight bodies and former team mate Chris Burlew. But the colors were a bit different. It was not white but off-white with a slight hint of pearl chartreuse green (I still lose my lunch looking at it) with thinner stripes in red and blue. :)
But you got everything else pretty well!

Of course old B&W pictures with 2 dots per square inch are not helping... :lol:

Nice job Jairus! One quick question if I may ask. Are you painting the numbers & lettering on the outside of the body or on the inside before you airbrush? :)

Depends.
Sometimes on the inside and sometimes on the outside.
The Superteam car... all lettering is on the outside. The Edo car has all lettering on the inside. Sometimes I do a little of both.

Thanks, Jairus! In the day, we lettered & numbered wing car bodies on the outside with Polly S paint. Liquitex was another paint that worked well for that purpose. :)
