    This is my first body paint trial. Is this any good?

    Here's how it looks at each of the 3 stages of paint.

    Not bad for your first paint job taking your time is key. Its a shame the time it takes to prep paint then tic toc till the first roll over makes me sick just thinking of it lol

    Yes sir that's right but I'm going to reinforce the hell out of it with either gorilla tape or shoe goo and Fiberglass cloth.

    Taxi!!!

    Haha, joking....mostly. Looks decent, though it looks like you need to spend a little more time getting your masking lines right. Maybe some decals to divert the attention from them? :D

    My RC builder told me it takes more time for him to complete the body/paint than it does to put a kit together
