Default Paint by Magoo

Been really lazy photographing my shells of late, so in an effort to change all that here are a couple I knocked up this week for myself (for once!). New colours for a new car this season, the Kyosho shell is a straigh Pavidis replica as I love his colours, went a bit more custom on the Bulldog...







Hope ya like 'em!

Been a bit lazy with updates to this , so here's a couple of my latest shells.

Kyosho FS2 for John Clarke (me!)


DB1for Rob Warren


The spray booth's kind of empty right now, so please PM me if you're looking for new paint for the coming season!

I've also started a blog (http://paintbymagoo.blogspot.co.uk/) where I'll be posting information about my current and completed work, as well as general RC and painting stuff. Please feel free to drop in and say hi!

Great designs John, lovely and neat, crisp and super clear as I've yours on the track and it works from a distance as well as looking great up close on the pit table. Fantastic pin lines !

A couple more, first up a replica of the DEX410R box art scheme (this ones for sale ATM)



And my (in)famous '24 hour' shell. Customer hand delivered it Friday night, and raced it Sunday morning...

Here's a new one done tonight. Just for kicks I did a step-by-step set of photos and put them up on my blog here, be sure and let me know what you think!

Brian Burgess




I'll get some better pictures when it's light outside...

Just finished up this 'all in one' mid-motor DEX210 shell... it doesn't have a home so it's in the For Sale section!





And this X2C shell is also up for sale... the flake green at the back looks amazing in sunlight!

Not a new one, but I found this while looking through some older photos, it's still one of my favorite shells I've sprayed.

Latest customer shell, DEX210 Bulldog with RCS Candy Red to match the Tresrey parts. The photos don't do Jon's candy paints justice... when the sun hit's them they are plain amazing!

Cheers Andy. It's backed with AutoAir aluminium base - course followed by Creatix pearl silver and then black. The AA is a pain to use as it tends to 'gum up' the liquid mask for some reason, but it gives an epic metal flake effect in the sun.

Some fresh paint for Si Trace, using RCS Candy red to tie into the Tresrey parts on his Durango...





And another one that went out this week, another DB1... lots of blending and fading of blues and purples on the back

The candy red backs with Chrome mate, nice work !

The last one for Ross looks great too but I suspect would be much much nicer in the flesh.

Thanks Ian, yeah, Ross' shell loses a lot of the subtlety in the photos. The white has pearl white carbon blended into it which you only see when the light hits it... fun!

Today's job has been a Supastox Ascari shell, which was great fun for a bit of a change.

The white fade on the edge of the blue before it goes to the black is real nice John !

How come you didn't do any lights on it ?

Nice colour scheme though !

Cheers Ian. Lights will on as stickers I think... I was going to spray them but the shell's a real pain! No masks at all, and no markings for windows/lights/anything. Trying to get it all symmetrical and even was a PITA, it was like trying to paint a bar of soap
