Default First painted body

Here is my first painted body. It's an Associated T4 body for my volcano. How does it look? I'm thinking I should lower the body.

And yes I know I have to put the decals on it

Not too shabby if I do say so myself. Looks good, I like the color.

Thanks

yeah, I hope to do that soon. Can I use regular super glue to hold the wing on?

Super glue won't hold well. You're better off using an epoxy.
