That's all I airbrush with here are a couple pictures of it on bodies.





The preperation time directly reflects the outcome of the job. The paint is waterbased easy to clean up.

You don't need to pay any one to paint, just buy yourself some paints, a airbrush, and some masks and giver. I haven't been doing it that long, but I am still new to it.

Total envestment is under a couple hundred bucks and you could do it.

There are lots of interesting tutorials on the net too. http://www.rctech.net/articles/paint...ntedmyst.shtml

OK Clubin what are you running those 29.5 laws on those are some meaty tires. Also what air brush are you using and at what PSI , I have been messing with the fastcolor paints and allways seem to mess it all up. Do you thin the paint with water it allways seems to clog up my gun.

I usually run about 15-20psi some paints need to be thinned a little, the faskoat I dilute it with 50% water. I am using a Iwata revolution air brush.
This is what those 29.5's are off of:

I think i'll try using the fastcolor paint when my new airbrush arrives, my LHS sells it. thank you slawhammer for a great deal on that iwata brush. I was using pactra oil based paint before and it was a pain with thinners and the fumes. I like the idea of water based way better.
