Smile Custom painting the HemiStorm Penta Losi 5ive

In my spare time this week I will paint up a hemistorm penta shell. I love painting, and not having an airbrush setup makes it even more challenging. As always I will use Tamiya rattlecans and regular 3M masking tape for the job. I can't wait to see what respected painters like Craftwerks RC and Billet will come up with in time, in the meantime I'll get to work to paint one up exactly like I like it: loud coloured and visible!

To start off a few pictures of the individual parts, which come precut and predrilled, with a clear overspray film.

Tiny pic-heavy update: tons of masking tape, what feels like miles of cutting, 4 days in it so far. Tomorrow I'll finally be able to peel and paint. For those with a good eye, I think you can already kind of tell what she'll look like when done.

I'll post some mounted pics later, for now I'll update this thread with some pictures of the painting process. You need a scalpel, a half-broken ruler, pen and a ton of rattlecans. Here are the pics, I tried to shoot them as step by step as possible.

The beadlock rings are Numbnutz Creations, I believe they are no longer made, but if you check Ebay you might just get lucky on finding a set!

I think this took me around 50 or 60 hours, all in all not too bad. Easy on the throttle, no rush to get it done. I like to step back and look too, just to see if stuff needs to be altered. It always changes from the initial idea along the line, which makes it fun.
