First time using the airbrush. Not too bad. Now just to master the right hand speed, and paint flow.

DONE.....(finally)!!!! Didn't put the side decals on. A.) they ripped, and B.) I did not like how they looked. Been 17 years in the making.

I plan on using it for more than models. I have an idea for a side business. Hopefully I can make some extra $$ with what I have in mind.

Has anyone used the airbrush set-up from harbor freight?? I want to use airbrushing for chassis', bodies, and other larger item where using a brush would not be practical.

Barracuda should be done tonight. Not happy with the how it is finishing. Hood doesn't sit right bc of the cowl, and so interference issues. Anyone know of a good cement that doesn't get stringy??

Try mixing your tube glue with the liquid cement about half and half, I 've good results with this.

Barracuda is almost complete. Just need to finish the front clip (second coat on trim), attach the front and rear bumpers, and decals.

After some researching, I found an online retailer dedicated to airbrushing. It's tcpglobal.com. I'll be ordering my kit through them. Nice thing is they can be order through Amazon, and have the backing that comes with ordering through Amazon,
