We all have done mistakes, we learn and we get better and better.

Stripe the paint off before its too late to do it and try to repaint the body. First use a good primer and then let the paint fly, but first of all be sure that the wheather is hot enough.

Kostas.

Just strip the paint off purple power works great. Then clean with warm soap and water let it air dry and quick wipe down with Alcohol. Then primer let it dry and them apply your color. Airbrushing takes some practice. I was hesitate to use mine now I shoot everything with it and I'm loving the results. B)

It looks to me like your paint may have too much thinner added to it. For most airbrushes you want the paint to be about the same consistency as 2% milk, then adjust your air pressure to about 18 psi to start. Your first couple color coats on the primer should just be "dust" coats, barely any color. The final color coat should have a wet look, but should not be heavy. This takes some practice.
