Megabass Camo Project Reel (New Part 2 Added)

Postby rugbyfisherman » Sat Jul 02, 2016 1:10 pm

Finally got time to finish a project reel. Started out as a cosmetically rough Megabass IS63 from Teal101. A whole bunch of hours in prep work later and the fun part/paint started. House of Kolor flakes and pearls added to custom colour paint mixes on each layer. Really pleased with how it turned out. Still finding a few finishing parts - will continue to post pics. Reel is going to be paired with a matching red ZPI Mg RC 002 spool.

Wow I like! I also got a IS71 from Teal but cannot find a local painter that can do paint jobs for under $200. ](*,)

Your painting work has always been top notch and this another example. :big grin:

Curious to see what you choose for the rest of the parts to compliment the paint work. :-k
