Hello all, couple of requests for a colour change, as I hate the red on the Austin. Wings and wheels will be staying black though.

First is Austin Kingfisher Blue, which changes a lot between cars, but this particular shade is the one I'd like:

Next is Ford Caribbean Turquoise, which admittedly is quite a similar colour! Not really sure on this one, but I always said I wanted a car in this colour, at the time I did mean an Anglia though...

Here's a base image, I can provide others if this one is too difficult to work with.

These two are the most important me, but if anyone doesn't mind doing this, I'm sure I can think of a few more. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

Well, I had a go. Not going to claim that these are perfect.

First the Kingfisher Blue


Then the Caribbean Turquoise, actually looks quite different on the Austin.


Finally I had a go with Bronze Green, because everyone loves green! :p This didn't come out so well because applying the dark colour screws up the highlights, could be better if I put more time in to it.

Those are awesome Matt! While you have all the layers and bits on bobs, could you try a few more I've been toying with? (Anyone else help with the rep please?)

Hold your horses, you haven't seen the others yet. :p

Had a go at these, it was tricky to get the 'correct' shade of maroon and yellow to match the scene, but I think I got close. The quality deteriorated a bit too but you get the idea. :)

Blue


Maroon


Primrose

Is this the name Ford of Europe used for Grabber Blue?

You might want to have a look at Chrysler's Petty Blue as well.

Go on then, since you asked so nicely.

No not that orange thing.



I really like this colour, I'm a sucker for orange. While doing it I needed another reference photo because the light in that one is tricky again, I came across this particularly useful one which claims to be of an orange car. :|

Soooo Matt.... any chance I could see a gloss black, if you're not too busy? ;)

I'll see what I can do, may not be until late tonight though. :)

(I still think orange looks better though :p)
