Took maybe 30 minutes from start to finish.
Nice! Kind of freaking, but cool! How you like the flip flop?

The kit went together easily, but I haven't flown it yet so that's all I can really say. It's been too windy here the past few days to mess with trying a maiden outside. It'll have to wait for my club's next indoor session.

Latest Airbrush Project


Here is my latest airbrush project; A 24" NutBall I built for flying outdoor. I started airbrushing this one while attending the Airbrush Getaway I just attended at the Tropicana in Las Vegas. The skulls are started with a stencil, to get the layout correct, and are then continued with free hand painting and the use of some additional free hand stencils that make the job of creating the organic artifacts on the bones of the skull.




I took the Killer Skulls class, taught by Eddie Davis. It was phenomenal!

I've been wanting to attend one of the Getaways, but they only offer them in Orlando and Las Vegas. Curious what you'd consider your skill level before you took the course. Beautiful work on the skulls.

Hi Guys,
Just wondering if anyone has used the folk art Clear cote Thick glaze? Been testing on a few EPS bits and it seems to be bonding quite well. I have a Hobby top gun L-39 and i was thinking of using it for a cote, both to protect the foam paint from the factory and to maybe strengthen.

Appreciate the advise.

I am overseas for a contract in the middle east and am limited to certain brands. Unlike back in the US, where you have hundreds of brands to seal or strengthen.

Cut them on a board and then place them individually. Oh and the Frisket film I use is very 'low tack' so no need to do the sticking it on your arm thing!

As I've said before, most of my lettering is cut using a CraftRobo hobby cutter. It's quite a substantial outlay mind, so unless you're going to paint a lot of foamies, just stick with the simple hand cut symbols. Just to show what can be achieved, the Disney lettering was hand cut with a sharp scapel.

I'm getting clots in my apple barrel paint when I try to thin it with windex. It then makes my air brush sputter. Do you guys run it by a strainer first?

I think the alcohol coagulates some acrylic paints. I've had the same issue and just use plain water to thin now. Maybe others have better advice.

mix it well, I had a similar problem until I used an Airbrush Paint Jar With Built-In Mixer http://www.harborfreight.com/airbrus...xer-66446.html then it mixed easily and I had no more clumping.

Is there really an advantage to using Windex over water?

I think so, water can leave kind of a fuzz but not with Windex. I may not have soaked in water long enough and thus the fuzz. If you are talking about removing the paper but I also mix paint with Windex and have no idea if that helps but I do it and it all works in my gun.
