  1. These paint jobs are absolutely stunning!!!
  2. That body is hideous! Thanks for the heads up!
  3. Very cool! Turned out excellent! Well done!
  4. Sounds like something I might be able to do, lol. Thank you for the help, I appreciate it 👍👍.
  5. Sounds like a simple enough method. I'll get to working on the rims again real soon. Thank you, I appreciate all of our help 👍👍.
  6. Thanks, I actually did this and managed to, as far as I can tell, cut both the rally and deeper rim straight. Unfortunately, it came out much deeper than needed. I have a different set that looks like would be perfect, but it won't be as easy as the first rim because there is no line or groove on the outside of the rim to distinguish where to cut. Not being a handyman and not very good with tools nor having very many, I can't quite figure out how to measure and cut the rim straight and evenly.
  7. Looks fantastic and that's some nice detailing! My favorite driver, I haven't watched a race since he retired.
  8. I don't think you are being confrontational at all. I do have two identical paint booths, one in the shed for spray cans and one in the spare room for craft paints mostly to keep any overspray off the books and other stuff we keep in there. I'm glad that you can spray those paints in your house, it's just not happening in my house, at least if I want to stay married, LOL. Here's the booth I use. Not the greatest, but it does work pretty good for me. They only cost me 75 bucks each.
  9. Yup, that's the series I saw. I'm looking more for ready to spray out of the bottle so unless they changed their product I think Createx is out for me. Yeah, wouldn't that be nice. Donn is a master painter for sure, unfortunately I can't use his system, at least for now, because I don't have a basement or even a garage. I might possibly be able to bring my compressor(since it's a light portable one) back and forth to my shed in the summer, but no smelly stuff in the colder months, lol. I do like the idea of not having to use primer, but I'm still unsure on their line as I would prefer a ready to spray product.
  10. Thanks for all of the responses guys. I probably should have noted that, like djflyer's situation, I am mainly looking for acrylics due to my wife and son having a high sensitivity to the smells of the lacquers and enamels. I am using the airbrush inside in our spare bedroom with a spray booth and I open the window to vent outside when spraying. I do use the Tamiya and Model Master cans also and love them, but I spray those in our shed during the warm months with a spray booth out there. This does seem to be the preferred primer for acrylics that I have seen so far. Thanks for all the info, it's very helpful. I certainly agree there, as I have gathered a lot of information so far. In fact I recently watched a video on Createx that kind of turned me off form their products due to the difficulty getting the right consistency to spray, which is why I prefer to find ready to spray out of the bottle. I had not heard of Mission and will certainly look them up. Thanks for the info, everything helps.
  11. Ok, so I know I will probably get 10 different answers, but what is the best (preferably) pre-thinned airbrush paint. I've seen and heard both good and bad about a lot of them. I am seriously considering a few brands including Testors Aztek, Createx, Wicked, and Gravity. I am just learning the airbrush and am currently working with craft paint as far as getting the right consistency and pressures and spraying distances.
