Welcome to the board, Deb.  Nice work on the Corvette.  If you are into nail polish on your fingers and toes you can learn to thin the polish and airbrush it on your models.  I like to look at the amazing colors and textures that nail polish comes in these days and think they might just be the ticket for a cool custom paint job.  I am into making parts out of resin so I don't really build, but do like the models posted here.

I have airbrushed some nail polish before.  I purchased small bottles of thinner from Sally Beauty.  Four ounces for about three bucks with a card.  There are such stores here in AZ.  I am confused by the lack of this particular item on the shelves at the big box stores but there is plenty of remover on hand.  I have found that thinner and remover are two different animals.  Folks on here that really know this stuff will be more helpful.
