    Thanks MikeMC & Dr Cranky, for posting the links to the photos you took. It was great meeting you guys as well. I wish I could have spent more time hanging out with you all! Man I could have spent all day talking shop with you Dr Cranky. We are already at work planning next years show and fixing the little snafus that put us behind time wise. Thanks again for coming to the show.

    Ford's! Although I collect and build a little of everything, I love the Ford's. From Model T's to Ford GT to Aeromax. I must have close to 100 mustang models alone. Next would be Mopars. Funny thing is, I don't think I've finished a mustang model in fifteen years. What I've been building the most of lately are Hemi 'Cuda's and Street Rods.

    Hey Stanley. Are you writing a book? I use a Badger XF 150 that I have been using for over 35 years. I have about six Badger 150's and one Paasche VL1 also about 30 years old. I keep the VL1 around because it will always work every time if I need to paint. Not as bad as your Aztec Simon but the badgers are a much more delicate airbrush then the VL and very precise. A breeze can bend the needle Back when I was working everyday with the airbrush and when in good working condition, I used to spay lacquer and sign my name on 1/8 inch masking tape. Can't do that with the VL. With my eyesight now, I'm lucky to even find the 1/8-inch tape. I too have wanted to get a new Airbrush. I've heard a lot of good things about the high-end brushes.

    Another sweet drawing. Makes me want to dig out my colored pencils and some paper and give it a go. I may have some old pencil sketches buried somewhere. If I can unearth them, maybe I'll post something.

    I'm an artist. I do fine art paintings. I also do custom automotive paint (murals, Flames, etc.)

    This is an oil on canvas called "swap meet" 48" X 84" or 4 X 7 feet. It's on the workbench.... er... easel This painting is about 40% done.



    This is a Harley Sportster tank I'm working on. It's not for a client, It's just to show what I do. It is 90% done and needs to be cleared.



    If you like, you can see some more of my art in the auto art tread. I also have some stuff up on my fotki site.

    Yeah, I couldn't see myself doing it either. I stressed big time. But it was for my good friend. She was not old at all, I believe in her 30's. We talked about how she would look as an angel; you know every thing being perfect and all. I think most women might see themselves as younger, no wrinkles, etc. This makes her look younger in this painting. Very challenging but Willie loves it.

    Thanks, gbritnell. I use a Badger XF 150 that I have been using for over 35 years. I have about six Badger 150's and one Paasche VL1 also about 30 years old.

    For this and most automotive murals I use House of Kolor.

    Hi Harry, I had the tank only in my studio. I hate to think of painting a tank on the bike. I do mostly freehand work I find the stencil work to labor intensive and then I find myself airbrushing over the stenciled work to keep it from looking like a stencil was used.
    I now do a lot of my composing in Photoshop. So with this tank, I printed out the various images, (faces, wings, dog heads) on printer paper. Cut out shapes to make a stencil, lay the paper in place and lightly dust a shade of paint on the tank just to lay the design out. The rest is all freehand.
