This is the first car i have made. It's an R34 Nissan Skyline. It was airbrushed by me and it was the first time i have used an airbrush. What do you guys think for my first time. Please make suggestions. thank you.

First off welcome to the forum. You have a very nice build there being your first time. Looks like your paint job came out better than my last car that I did. With all the things you can learn here added to what you can all ready do could add up to some awesome builds. Keep up the great work and look forward to seeing the next.

Looks great - wish my first airbrushing attempt had looked that good...................

Welcome, rampwarrior.
Nice go at your first attempt. Great looking car.
It may be just me, but in the pics, the paint looks a little thick at points, obscuring some of the detail. Again, it may be just me. And I've got bad eyes.

thanks for the input everyone. As for demono's Question....yes its thick because the first go at painting it got me some fish eyes and found out it was a result from not cleaning the body before painting. what a mistake. I had to do a lot of sanding. lol. thank you to all for the input.

Hi Ramp....

Very nice indeed! Like the others, I wish my first outing with an airbrush had been as successful as yours was! Thank you very much for sharing with us!
