One other trick if you still need to thin the paint. A couple of drops of windex will get it to flow better. Watch some of the airbrush videos on youtube. You can see how to steady your hand by using your other hand as a guide.

Michaels Craft store. Hobby Lobby also carries Createx. Createx is a little thicker than auto air in my experience.

It's what I have found best, also great for cleaning the airbrush out.

Default Guys

Hambone and I have had a conversation. The whole deal this evening has been handled and officially put to rest. Please, let's move on and not discuss or feed it any longer.

About airbrushing. I want to learn. Brad will lend me his gun.

About kicking extra points, I wish I had seen that.

Let's not forget the most memorable thing at the track this past summer.

Ed's T4 being brutalized, Brad and I throwing BOULDERS, Jim being chased into his Jeep and me cutting donuts in the grass in my car, followed closely by Altoona Police issuing relief. What a crazy freakin animal that was !!!
