      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Hopefully JayVee will see this. He's been doing them quite a bit with fantastic results. He did a tutorial awhile back. If anything maybe send him a private message. He posts right here on Model Cars.

I keep looking for information on how these flames are made and I am not finding much. is this some secret society?? :shock:

I know its not rocket science as I have been doing classic flames on almost anything since I was pretty young. Nice thing about having a father who painted custom cars when I was going up. I learned many techniques - but I was thinking the real flames were just transfers - but now I am under the impression they are actually painted.

or am I barking up the wrong tree??

please help me understand this technique better. Thanks

Do a google search for Mike Lavallee and Killer Paint. He's the guy who's credited with the "True fire" technique. I know I've seen a good tutorial on-line, but can't find it again.

Yes, True Fire is airbrushed, using a lot of french curve type templates.
