Default First attempt with airbrush

My first time with an airbrush I ended up with some specks due to not knowing what the h@ll I was doing. I tried using a stencil but hated the look so I just freehanded the rest with a custom stencil I cut it out of plastic from my g2 raptor packaging, still have to clear coat it, waiting for paint to dry and then paint the rims I'm thinking black? or more flames?suggestions?. Please be gentle, it was my first attempt.[&o] I learn't one thing never fill your airbrush full the paint goes along way use half or even a 1/4 full.
Edit still have to black out the windshield but paint is too wet. I also added pic of the home made stencil .

Still looks pretty good for first attempt. My first try with a air brush was all one color. Rc bodies get painted on the inside and painted backwards, or darker colors first. cfx paintworks has alot of how toos on painting along with great ideas. They will also give out helpful tips.
Im sure there are other sites as well, but I just like that site the most.
Looks good though and you also go a few tips. Just keep with it, with a effort like that, youll have it down in no time.

Thanx and I'll check out cfx. I just had a buddy tell me paint the outside and clear it. He's been in the hobby for years maybe next time I won't listen to him.

Yeah, don't listen to your buddy anymore. The real pain in painting the outside isn't in having clearcoat it, it is in having all of the paint scrape off on the first rollover. Nice job though.

I'm not worried about rolling it I'm a pro I have atleast 20 minutes of experience lol. I'll just clear it 2 times and buy a new body cause I know it's gonna get wrecked. Sad cause I was proud of it.

yes you did need to paint the inside..................but actually the dull finish looks great you did a great job. i will be be suprised if it stays on longer then your first run. i hope it does cause it looks good now i need to know how to paint the inside and still get that dull finish cause it looks cool.

did you pull the overspray off the body before painting it? you might just be able to pull off the over spray and all that paint will come right off and you will have a clear body again, IF you havent already pulled the over spray off.

I was just going to say that, you may have painted on the overspray film, which can just peel off.
