Thats awesome, the only thing i would think of for next time, is possibly continuing that design in the back some more.

Doesnt look like you had airbrush troubles to me

Thanks for the compliments guys. Tamiyakid, my airbrush troubles slowed me down more than anything last night. This body should not have taken as long as it did. Regardless, it came out pretty good.

Looking good.

Did the body not come with a rear window mask?

The body didnt come with any window masks actually. Everything on that body was hand drawn, and then cut by me. I chose to have the rear window painted. And i left out the CF bed as well.

Ahh. Personally, I can't mask, so I always buy HPI or Pro-Line bodies. I bought the stock Revo body, but since it didn't have window masks, I returned it. []

I had a friend out in Cali make me some window masks for the stock revo body. I'll throw some liquid mask on it soon, and do this same scheme on a revo body with those masks. They should be really nice. They are designed to re-shape the window. The designs are drawn by me too. The idea of these window masks is to give perfect window trim when painting.
