Sorry for allt he questions. I'm impressed at teh work you did. I've not tried to do anything like that with my Badger 175. I've been thinking of adding an Iwata gravity feed to my arsenal for projects just like youve shown.

You are off to a super start.

Good luck with the video tutorial, I had a hard time swallowing the $160 price tag for the set. The video alon is I believe $60. Anyway, I didn't buy it.
Look forward to some more of your stuff!

I usually shoot 30 with my Badger 150 and I have not been able to do any better than what you show on the lower hood.
However, you can use a lot lower PSI and more detail if you have a nice gravity feed airbrush!
15 PSI is perfect for free handing true flames at 1/24th scale! I'd show you but I ruined the tip on my Tamiya gravity feed.... :cry: (I am sooo bummed)
Nice work on the flames and keep at it. With the 150, maybe lower the pressure to 25 psi and really thin out the paint. Then work slowly and build up the effect of flames freehand. (Clean the tip of the needle periodically as it acquires build up) You can also cut some generic templates for the "trough" and "tips" of the flames just for variety.
Oh,… and work dark to light.

Here's an early attempt at "true fire" (my first attempts looked more like "spew fire"). The hood in the top part of this pic has a decal I made for reference, and the hood on the bottom is painted. I need to make a smaller template and denser flames on my next try, but at least it looks like it will work:
i like this set of pics!!!!
I would really like to try my hand at those true flames!! i love that look!!!!!!
