Pete,

By far the best stuff out there is Createx Auto Air. There is a ton of information available on them. They do require some special handling just like any water base paint. They need to be...

Thank you. It is a challenge to keep coming up with new stuff, yet keep the basic colors I can see. For me, white, orange and yellow are the most visible.

Yep...good old clear coat. OK some thoughts. One of two things are likely happening. The first is your clear may not be fully atomizing with the gun you are using. 1.4 is on the small size...

In the very last picture above you can see how I airbrushed two Austral logos onto the yellow band in orange. This shows how much flexibility you have using computer generated masking film. I didn't...

Bill,

I just add thinner until it makes it brush-able without leaving marks. I just use a two inch hair brush...nothing special. I tried to use a foam brush, but it melted! :) I would guess I thin...

Bill,

That's one of the downsides to HOK paints...they don't do any color matching as virtually the whole line is custom. I talked to Coast a while back and said they would be more than happy to...

Bill,

Sorry I don't know of any particular brand of strippers. I would contact your local auto paint suppliers. They should be able to help you out. I have heard guys on RCU talking about brands...

Matt,

I have to agree that they probably are banging them out pretty fast. If I were doing the same paint scheme over and over, I could do it in a whole lot less time.

Keep in mind that Oxai's are constructed not a lot different from ...for instance...a BJ Craft plane. I'm not talking about finish work, just the overall construction. Both are composite...

Scott,

Agreed. That's always a hard call as to how much to add back in as you may sell a few, or a bunch. My numbers are a rough guide only and may be way off base...but I bet they are close.

In the US one of Oxai's bipes retails for around $6,000 U.S. I would guess there is a minimum of $250...
