    My new compressor and aibrush!


    Just wanted to share my new toys. I finally dropped the cash on a airbrush. I've been practicing alot lately and cannot wait to start painting some bodies and doing some basic tshirt designs. I recently designed some stencils and had them cut out. One more ave that rc has taken me down.

    Thanks guys. I want to pick up the paasche Talon here this month if I don't break the bank with christmas. I've been practicing with Faskolor paints but placed a order with createx and am waiting on those colors. My kids have been practicing too. I didn't realize how much fun airbrushing was going to be!

    I've been out if the airbrush scene for decades. I had one growing up building models... I don't remember what make it was, for some reason Badger, comes to mind. Maybe the paint fumes back in the day, really effected my memory banks.

    I started having stencils laser cut for my rc group and youtube channel and some for the kids. Hoping to start making some tshirts for them and painting some bodies too. My brother called me up earlier today and said he wants to get into it too. He just left our lhs. It's always great to get others into the hobby eventhough I'm just learning this whole airbrush scene myself!

    ...one thing I remembered what Not to do: Take a rag and wipe the tip of the gun. You'll bend the needle if you forget to back it out.
    If I didn't have a job that travels a lot. I would consider picking up a rig. I have a vinyl machine to cut out stencils.

    I've wanted to get a vinyl cutter for so long. That is a serious toy that is always in need here in our local rc community.
