Default Weeeee my first paint job!

I just finished my first custom body. Considering the fact that I'm 14 years old, I think I did a pretty good job.
What do you think?

What kind of paint did you use? Looks like it is chipping off at the edges. Blue and white look good though. Nice first attempt! I only used one color for my first 5-10 bodies so you are ahead of me.

Thanks for the replies. I used tamiya for the paint I might try parma next time. As for the tape I used that scotch blue masking tape cut it three inches long, then started at the top and center, then cut a straight line down to the bottom and outside.
p.s. Can you get parma paint's in spray can's.
