Default Andy's £10 airbrush adventures.

Thought i'd start my own thread, as i've cracked out my bargain £10 airbrush again and painted myself a new shell for my RC8B.

I'm using the compressor from my 20 year old Tamiya Spraywork, with a brand new £10 airbrush bought on ebay !
I'm just using up the spray paint i've had for ages, just spraying it into the airbrush paint cup.

This is only my 2nd shell with Liquid Mask - It is the Future

Nice! How did you make the lines so straight?
And you need some white rims!

Cheers for the comments guys.
Yep, white rims will be on soon
The straight lines are just cut freehand into the liquid mask.

I 'do it' very slowly, took my time with this one. How on earth some of the pro painters on here do many shells in a day amazes me.

Hi. For liquid mask, have a look at jonmiller (few posts up) and his RCS graphics website, that's where I got mine from. It's liquid latex stuff you paint inside the shell.

looks like my new wheels may well be acquired tomorrow fella

Should save your x6 from getting a beating in my hands!!

MANY thanks for your generous offer though - 95% likely I'll not need to take you up on it though.

HERE I COME BABY !! YEAH !!

(to keep this on topic, I'll be spraying a few shells myself this coming week. Will post my results up here if they ain't too shocking!!)

p.s. what material did you use for the "Graphite" - looks nice.

Hi
Just search on ebay for 'airbrush nails' etc and you'll find the one I got for around £10 if there's some still for sale. It was in a blue / clear plastic case.

The airbrush didn't come with a hose, so I just pulled the hose off the tamiya gun and it pushed nicely onto the hose plug on the new airbrush, job done

Brilliant, look forward to seeing what you get ! B4.1 ? Durango ?

I ran the x6 the other night at York and it was great, still one of my favorite cars. Rich Lowes b4 trounced me though !!

Look forward to seeing how you paint it too, I've got a couple of new Rc8 shells to paint when I get chance....

B4.1 mate.

My colours will be the same as ever !! Only slight changes.

Evolution, not revolution. I want to evolve..... not revolve.

I buggered this one up by spraying Nitro Block onto the shell after finishing it (it all bubbled and I had to re paint the areas where it went crazy) Gutted

Looks bad close up in places - ok from a distance....

I thought i'd put up a piccy in my thread anyway.

Painted again with my £10 e-bay airbrush
