Take the hose from your spray kit with you so you can match the connector. Likewise check out the compressor side. I put quick disconnects on mine since I also use it for other air tools

just finished this 40" DW Foamies Juka for a fella out in Las Vegas....all posterboard stencils and no pins or weights to hold things in place....

and the teflon thread sealing tape?

Good luck with it. Play around with some cardboard and such before you attack a plane. Remember, light even coats to not add too much weight

Nope, I did not get any Teflon tape because my dad already has some.......he is a (brain)scientist and has alot of this stuff (he uses tanks of air and such in his lab). I still did not get any paint though, but I may not be able to airbrush tomorrow.........I have school Monday and stuff to do. Nnot that much, dont worry but I also want to go to the feild tomorrow and fly. Also to train my dad..........but he has a pretty long way to go.

You're having too much fun with the mini vapor to paint, admit it!! You can get small 2oz bottles of paint at Michael's or Blick art and craft stores or if you can't find those stores, you can get some of the Apple Barrel or Folk Art paint at Wal-Mart to practice with for something like $2 a bottle. Make sure you don't pick the dustiest bottle on the shelf and it's unopened as if there are any lumps in it, they will clog the airbrush. And be sure to clean it well once you are done. and then just be creative and have some fun trying different things on something that doesn't matter

Fine...........ok, yes I admit it! Flying my Mini Vapor tons and tons of times every day (cold and winds have been keeping me inside....at least for flying ). Well, I have everything ready to airbrush, I got some paint from Hobby Lobby, I am just waiting for a day when I have time...........so much other stuff going on. School, planes, life, planes, Mini Vapor, planes..........see? I cant find any time to airbrush!

-joker

P.S. I fly the Mini so much (and other planes too........) that I rarely have any time to charge my DX7s . I am thinking about getting a better batt for it soon..........

adreher,
I'm sure you covered this in the last 111 pages but what material did you use for making your stencel. I know you used craytex paint and i just wanted to make sure it was the same stufff as fascolor. I use it on my car bodies and wanted to make sure it would work on depron. thanks for your time and you have done a great job on this thread.

I like to use template making material, because it a lite plastic, fairly inexpensive,available in large sheets if needed and cuts easy. If you use card stock you can only use it one time and then the end gets bloated from the paint.
