Default On a mission

I'm on a mission. I've (happily - I love painting!!) agreed to do a couple of paint jobs for some pals.

The first one, I need to do for this Sunday . Ultimately, we're trying to achieve something like this on a B4.1 shell :



Reasonably fiddly, but confident I can do a decent version, but only with the right materials, paint etc.

I've got an airbrush I've never used before !!!, a decent compressor, some paint in cans (from my mate, which he's used on previous shells), but crucially no liquid mask - which I reckon is essential to achieving a shell like this. Not used that before either !!!

Does anybody know anywhere in West Yorks that sells Createx / Faskolor or something similar OR can deliver uber-fast and has plenty of colours in stock?

I'm trying to figure out if it's realistic to aim to complete a shell like that for the weekend, or should I just do him a bog standard (but neat) job with some standard mask & the spray cans he's passed me, and save the "big one" for another day?

Aye lad that is a tricky one. Might be worth just doing a neat bogo standard one just to get the lad up and running. have heard the guy in question is a bit throttle happy anyway,so save the nice one for when he calms down abit. Dint he wipe a cougar shell out at batley the other week and kept blaming a faulty lipo connection on his erratic driving.

thanks for the quick replies everybody !! Uber-helpful forum section this.

Jon (love your site btw - had a right good read of it!!) - any chance you can pm me the colours you reckon I'd need to try and match that shell, with prices, delivery etc ?

I could spray it with a can in a day, but working back from Sunday, I reckon Fri+Sat = curing time... Thurs = painting, Wed = liquid mask.

JUST about do able?? Don't want to rush and fudge.

all done - "fairly" happy with it given it's my first for 4 year.

Had a real issue with the Candy Green - it seemed to melt into the liquid mask, so when I was peeling it off, it was like I was peeling off a really thin Candy Green coloured mask.

live n learm!

now leaving it to dry fully before giving it a backing with a spray can white, then the window masks can come off ready for use on Sunday.

looks like you did a good job andy. pics make it hard to see very well.

as for the green, perhaps you applied it too heavy?
