    show class help?
    entered my first model show yesterday, had fun, entered 5 cars and won two first place trophys. Im new to this showing and wounder if theres guidelines for classes? Like what is considered box stock, open box, competition, etc. This show had 52 different classes and one of my entry to me looked like it fit into several classes? Overheard one contestant say he was moved out of pro street class because of tires. His car had slicks and needed street treaded tires to be in the pro street class.
    I had a blast and was shocked to win anything, but would like to learn he different terms or classes.

    Thanks Drew.

    what type of paint are ou having trouble with? Water base or solvent base? Im new to an airbrush had similar problems and it ws my fault for not reducing paint with the proper reducer and adjusting the pressure to a constant 30psi at the airbrush.

    newbie with an airbrush (paasche talon siphon and gravity feed) asking about what to reduce wicked pearls with their high performance reducer. Any mix ratio or eyeball it? So far im guessing and shooting junker bodies for practice. Seems really thick right out of the bottles so im trying about 50/50 mix with 30 psi at the airbrush.
    What are you trying?

    great advice from you all! Got my first of 2 paasche airbrushes today. 1 is on backorder for 2 weeks so im going to use the time to learn on one until the gravity feed airbrush gets here. Got a box of junker bodies and a trip to big lots for nail polish as well as the paint store. Alos got my sata mini hvlp rebuilt in case! Ok its for clear coating. Anyone else?

    Thanks again! Drew

    new to airbrushing, where to buy paints?
    im a new to airbrusher. Ive got a set of 2 Paasche talons on order now. Ive got some experience using real paint guns on real cars but having trouble with models so far. Cant seem to get it thinned properly yet. Where is a good place to buy paints and supplies from? Any charts to help with reducing correctly?
    Thanks in advance for your advice!
