    Default My Revo, 1st paintjob.

    Here are a few pics of my first lexan paintjob.
    Rattlecans and masking tape. Trying to track down all my airbrush stuff will see what I come up when I finally get it all together.



    What d'ya think?

    Wow that's really impressive. Any prior painting skills?
    You think you know, but you have no idea.

    Lots of models from years ago, Never tried the (inside out) process used on rc bodies though.

    Looks real Good, what were you spraying with? That doesn't look like a rattle can...

    In fact it was 4 rattle cans, lots of green masking tape, some WIDE electrical tape (X-Acto cut into tapered stripes, I discovered that they're easily removable and leave a nice clean line)
    Was 3 Pactra's and I can't remember the 4th.

    Sweet, you have much more patience then me. I did one body with rattle cans. Got done, threw it away and went out and got an Iwata Brush and 20G compressor. If your pulling off this with rattle cans I'd love to see what you could do with a Pro Set-up..
