Here is my Model made after purchasing the 69 pacer in 1984, shortly after a good friend attended a industry event in the great state of Indiana during May 1986, somehow he found his way into the brickyard and a facility hosted "dinner" where they had a table full of various 8x10 prints of INDY 500 memories, He snagged a Official Pacer photo and fashioned a display for my model that was sitting on a dresser in my home. I came up with the idea to hang the wooden followers below and attach the dash plaques chronicling show attendance.

Like most tons of various models Car, Boat, Plane And Trains met with the various demises of BB Guns, Firecrackers etc....

This is the best I have been able to do with a rattle can. '66 Chevelle I started back in '18. Going for a replica of my fathers old L34 '66. Textured ceilling in the laundry room as it makes it look like the paint is wonky. I need to eventually get back after this little project but like most things I run out of daylight.

Thanks! I used rattle cans for all of the painted models. I would say about 75% of these models were painted by me, the others were molded in color out of the box, which I then clear coated. I learned some tricks over the years like very light multiple coats, not spraying too close, and warming the spray can in some warm water for about 10-15 minutes before spraying. All of the decals and stripes were also cleared over for protection. They are not perfect, but it was fun building them!

Rattle can. Silver base then candy metalflake green. Warm the can under hot tap water, warm day outside, lay it down with long strokes. Been doing this for 40+ years.
