Default First paint job...

Hey guys, just wanted to post some pics of my first paint job. Its the Proline Bulldog body for my RC8T. I used blue and white rattle cans, carbon fiber and shading done with my new Iwata airbrush. See what you all think. Its just my first time so I've got alot to learn and practice. Thanks for looking.

Just an update on my body. Just trimmed it out, added grill & lights decal and also had enough lexan to paint up some mud gaurds for the rear. I think it came out pretty good.

I hope my first one comes out 1/2 as good as your first. Nice drop shadowing and depth highlights. I'd run it!

Here's a quick one from today. No biggie, I wanted to practice aliitle more with my airbrush so I used this body. I ran out of my vinyl mask so I used blue painters tape for the whole thing. I also just picked up a new airbrush compressor so another excuse to paint this up.

Cell phone pics so you don't really see the colors that good. I will try to take pics tomorrow in the sun.
