Turned out ok. Tried one before with automotive urethane paint that didnt work out. Used Parma on this one and it is a little better. I need to change the tip in my Iwata the Parma is alot thicker than House of Kolor. This is my favorite angle, more of them are in my build thread. What ya think?

hey

That looks great. I stopped caring about my paintjobs because I destroy the bodies in a couple weeks. That is an unfortunate side effect of having just enough power but limited abilities. LOL

Looks good

I feel the pain. That looks sweet. I feel mine would have been better if I had had good paint. Pactera paint sucks. It must have been old cause it ran like water. Even after 10 mins of a paint shaker couldn't get it to spray it's best.
Looking forward to scratching paint with you the 11th. cheers

A little paint tip for rattle can rc lexan paint. Take a bowl and fill it with warm water out of the tap. Place the can in the bowl for 10 minutes or so. It will warm up the paint and increase the pressure inside the can. You will get a finer spray out of the nozzle. I have got some bad ones. But normally this helps a bunch.
