Here I want to share with you a cheap trick for those who wants to try upgrading the brake discs to carbon ceramic for their model cars. :hope:

Bonus: Learn how to use Mr. MASKING SOL R here as well. :occasion14:

Base model: 1/18 Pagani Huayra Carbon Edition by Motormax Platinum.

Things you need (or equivalent):
  • Mr. MASKING SOL R
  • Mr. SUPER CLEAR FLAT
  • Tamiya TS-42 Light Gun Metal Spray Can
  • A Pair of Tweezers
  • Pin Vise (Optional)
Before: Brake discs are in terrible gloss black.

This is the Mr. MASKING SOL R. This is perfect for odd shape and difficult-to-mask areas.
Posted Image

This came with a brush on the cap, just like a nail polish. Brush the liquid on the part you wanted to mask. Liquid is transparent but no worries a thin layer will do. Let it dry for say 30mins.

Note that if your discs are in silver, the next step will be spraying it in black. Since for this model it is already in black, I proceed to spray gunmetal. Hold the discs as far as you can stretch on one hand, and the spray can as far back as possible. Just give it a shot or two will do. Trust me, a little shot or two will do. Depends on personal preference, for this model I decided to spray a little more (more gunmetal colour vs black). When you are done with the result, spray a little flat lacquer to matte the surface.

Remove the masks using tweezers. Voila.

This step is optional. Use a pin vise to drill the holes on the brake discs. It would look more realistic if briefly drilled. Do not drill through. Here's how it looks after.

Here you go. Installed back and here's how it looks.

What a fantastic tutorial technica! :occasion14: :rock:    

That's a 1000% transformation, and that masking solution looks so easy to use - and I'm sure is something that the (newbie) modders (like me! :nice: ) are gonna love! :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

This is interesting! Back when I was consistently building plastic kits one of the local hobby shop chains in Detroit/Michigan state used to sell a similar solution in a bottle for masking and it worked great. This is the fist time that I;ve seen something like this since the late 90s! BTW, your brake discs look AWESOME!!! :eusa_clap:

P.S is there any websites the rest of us can use to get "Mr.Hobby" I'm assuming it's from the Gunze Sangyo range of paint/finishing products? :occasion14:

The discs look much better now. I wonder if the masking stuff works on wheels as well, let's say if you want to paint the ring of the wheel and mask the center or vice versa instead of painting the whole wheel.

Thanks! I believe it can be done, but you have to be very careful. Be careful of decals though, the mask might lift them off. :nice:

Is there anywhere you can buy this sort of thing ready made ?

I have a modified Kyosho 3 series with M5 wheels & brakes on it, I want to replace the brakes with ceramic looking ones.

F**k you Photobucket.

Not that I know of Craig, perhaps you could source for original parts from AUTOart? There are several models with ceramic brakes... ;)

great tips! I like the pin vise idea. For those of us in the US, Micheals/Hobby Lobby has the same stuff. Not sure the name of it, but its liquid mask. Paint it on, let it dry and it peels off just like rubber. I use (use to!) it on 1:48 scale aircraft canopies, works great!

brakes look good!

Could the mask stuff (once dry) be used as a mold, for something like putty or resin? Just wondering.

Sounds viable, but I have not try that before. Usually I only use thin layers for masking purposes... :nice:

You are welcome. I notice people are more interested in the masking liquid rather than the carbon ceramic tips thou. :lol:
