I picked up a cheap and very worn Firepower.
I tried to find a better playfield but no luck so i figured what the hell i can't make this playfield any worse so i had a go at touching up and clearcoating.
Here is what i started with...

And finally after some airbrushing and a lot of touch up she is as done as i can get her.
I'm not 100% happy but it is 1000 times better and will play a lot better!

Looks pretty good. That center of the playfield is very tough....too tough for me so I bought a CPR... Hopefully I'll come across the game one of these days!

Yeah,if I was able to match the dingy yellowed white it would have turned so much better.

That looks great! Please share some details. What kind of paint did you use and how did you match the color? I've got some touch areas I need to do, but I suck at painting.

I use acrylics and mix and match as good as I can.
Airbrush the large areas and hand paint the rest.
The clear coat hides a lot.

What specific colors did you mix for the red target areas? I started with a fire engine red, but it's a bit dark.

It's bright red,it matched pretty good but I re-sprayed all 4 of them anyway.
