    Default Painting Vehicle HeadLights?

    Hey all

    I am currently painting a couple of SM razorbacks. I can't work out a decent way to do the headlights without an airbrush, and can't find any decent guides either.

    Can anyone give any hints & tricks?

    you could put some real LED's in there,.. drill a couple of small holes to run the wires, and hide the battery pack inside the tank. Otherwise, some OSL might work,.. color would be up to you.
    It's only a flesh wound!!!

    Nitro tint by AK works well for lights, currently they sell red green and yellow in 3 pack. There super thin paint thinner or about same as badger ghost tins.

    A quick way paint black, thing light to brighter metal over it. Not sure the paints you used than apply 1 coat at time to build up the effect, won't be as effect as osl but will look real enough.

    Look at NASCAR pics or NHRA funny car pics. They don't have real headlights, but decals.

    You could do the headlight OSL like i did it on theses plasma weapons:
    No AB required.
