Painting the Nightcat Statue

I’m still working feverishly on painting the statue. I think I’ve filled in the all the little airholes and whatnot so I was able to get most of her primed. One leg is painted, the other has a first coat of paint so it’s pretty transparent right now and I’ve also painted her costume. I’m quite excited. I used Testor’s gloss black for the costume and regular Folkart acrylic paint for her fur. The contrast is rather stunning I think. And once I’ve finished drybrushing her and whatnot, I think it’ll look very snazzy. 🙂

And now that I have an airbrush (and because of my fairly recent discovery that Testor’s paint is now acrylic and not oil based) I’ve decided to get back into model making. I know what you’re thinking, “How is this Nightcat related?” Well, I’ve bought a 2000 Honda Civic, a New Beetle and a 1953 Jaguar XK 120 1/24 scale models. This probably doesn’t mean a whole lot to anyone else but those are the vehicles some of the main characters drive. Dana has the Civic, Trin has the beetle and Victor has the Jag. So it’s sorta Nightcat related. And yes, I have too much time on my hands. 🙂
