Thanks, That looks perfect. Now back to watching your great videos! I thought air brushing would be easy. I have painted cars and bikes for years but doing the artistic shading and keeping lines straight and paint flow even takes alot of practice. I bought a 2 x 4 sheet of lexan to practice on.

Hello Charlie

I just got home a Iwata hp-c plus airbrush today.

and going to give it a real try tomorrow.

but i would like some tips before i start.

I pretty new to airbrushing so.

What is a good start psi for this airbrush?

For finer lines should the airpreasure be higher or lower, or when you find the preasure spot you stay at it no matter what you should paint?

The paint is faskolor and i thin it out to the consistency of milk

EEEK...so late so i apologize. For those who wanna know...

Start with at least 40psi and go up or down from there. Higher PSI for the thicker pearls and lower psi for fine, over reduced paint for detail stuff.

As far as CONSISTENCY, thin it to YOUR liking. SOme like it like milk, some like it thinner..it is up to you.

Hello,

I would like to paint my 1/10 buggy shell (Dex410), with flames like the pic from first post.

So my question is, does someone have a file for the flames incl. the outlines, or does exist a link, where i can download files, so i can go to a shop for cutting out the flames from a painting mask sheet?

sorry for my bad english, i hope u understand!?

THX in advance

awesome videos and tutorials Charlie... you do make it look easy... but that gives me something to shoot towards. I have recently started playing with spaztix colors starting with candies and like them a lot... they flow nice thru my single action Paasche H brush right around 17ish PSI .... Keep the tutorials coming my friend... Your skills and tutorials are much MUCH appreciated !!
