My uncle made this “A” shaped Hot Wheels case for my cousin’s kid and asked me to paint it for him. My uncle used to do some really amazing wild-life carving’s but arthritis has sadly ended his carving career. When I got the case it was solidly built but in need of some finishing work. I made a few slight modifications, sanded the hell out of it, added a wheel-shaped lock, and the name banner. I’ve played around with airbrushing a little but actually had to learn how to do it for this one. I watched a few you-tube vids on airbrushing flames and employed a combination of my own ideas and trial and error to arrive at an end result that I was satisfied with.
