this is my first attempt at some first hand art work on a plane with my airbrush, i thought it turned out pretty cool! i want to give the dual action airbrush from harbor freight a try now, just to see if i can get some tighter lines out of it.

i was pleasantly surprised with how little weight the airbrushing added, less than .75 oz by my calculations.

can't wait to get this thing out and do the first flight!

Just picked up a harbor freight airbrush set, works great! Plan to put it to good use on some planes in the future!

well i finally finished my blu-baby, so now I'm going to start working on the the how to thread. here's a link:
i know its not complete yet, but its got all the info you need to get started. their are other build logs that you can find if you don't want to wait for awhile for me to finish this one. i have a bunch of AP tests coming up in 2 and a half weeks so i have to kinda put rc on a hold for awhile :P anyone that has questions can PM me, i'll still check in regularly for this reason. (post below is a lie, it didn't hardly fly the first time i tried had to completely remake it)
