Default Got any good airbrushing techniques? Rattle can? Post here!

I want to be able to apply awsome graphics to whatever I paint. I'm an airplane guy myself, but I've painted Lexan bodies before. I've got an airbrush now for detailing scale models and my present models. I've got one problem, as do most other people, techniques! What are some ways to paint flames? Lightning? Skulls? Anything?! I don't know how yet, but I really want to! Here's a direct example, I recently crashed my Funtana, and I want to add some flair to the wing I'm repairing. What do I do? BTW, I have an Iwata HP-SB+ or something like that, with a silverjet airpump, including a full set of colors. What do I do?

...and wipe off the nozzle after each spray so you reduce the risk of a splatter.
