same here...cept i still have clear coat to add and i didnt airbrush mine (wish i knew how to).

its more fun doing it your self cause then you learn how to do it and it does save money. why spend like $100+ when you can spend maybe only $20 doing it yourself...

Airbrushing is actually easy, jus go to the local hobby store and ask the salesperson which airbrush is fer beginners, the one I have is the Aztek A220.

As fer the clear coat woodsballer use the Testors Clear Coat spray can which is also available at any hobby store or if you want to, jus get the airbrush, applying the clear coat through an airbrush will give you a much better advantage and wit better results also, it will dry within a few minutes and you can apply more coatings.

That'll work too whiteknight and good luck.

I couldve used enamel paint but, I chosed acrylic paint (Tamiya) since I have so many bottles of them fer painting my collection of WWII German Armored Tanks and figures.
