OK, time to pick up some fascoat then.
I'm so inpatient to take away the window masks but I guess I need to wait until tomorrow then..... Just finished my first airbrushed shell.

do you HAVE to use fascolour to seal the paint or can you use any old lexan backing paint to seal it?

I've been using faskolor paint for years on both electric and nitro bodies. You don't have to seal it with anything, after the paint dries and fully cures for about 24-48 hours depending on the humidity it is fully water and nitro proof. I always back the entire body with a coat of white for a bright, uniform finish, otherwise some colors might remain slightly transparent in bright light. No need to seal it with anything though.
