  3. Hi all, Well I made up my mind: after using spray cans and paint brush for as long that I am the RC hobby, I would like to take the next step: airbrush. I would like some advice on the purchase of an airbrush system for beginners. I would like to use it for painting helmets/ drivers and detailing. on lexan and ABS bodies. If somebody here on TC has any tips what to look for in such system, it would be much appreciated! PS: I live in the Netherlands Best regards, Rick

    detailing: scale antenna for F1 car

    Wow! Thanks for all your tips and tricks! Even from a genuine engineer... Truck Norris: what a great examples of your crafmanship!!!! I will have a go the Styrene way.... I understand the best way to attache the sensors/ antenna's is glueing them with instant cement? That won't damage the lexan? Or are there alternative ( safe) ways to attach them without damaging the lexan body? Rick

  15. Hi all, I was wondering what your experiences are with painting lexan bodies: do you first cut the body and then paint it ore vice versa? Rick
