I'd been wanting to airbrush a "Back in Black" AC/DC body for a while.  Might do this on a Camaro too.  The hard part was doing Angus on the hood.  All graphics carefully hand cut.  It rocks!
An HPI 69 Camaro for my buddy, Buddy!  He will be running this in the Chicagoland area in Vintage Trans Am.  He's a good driver...look out!
This is a B4 or B4.1 body for the Associated buggy.  Love that Monster Energy theme!  Everything you see is airbrushed including the logos.  Would look nice with white wheels I think.

This is a Parma SPEEDFLO body that I did for a buddy of mine.  Its going on his stock Slash.  Faskolor paints.
A 1968 Camaro by HPI.  The racer that had me paint this one used his colors and then asked me to try to follow the scheme from the BMW "Art Car" that you see elsewhere.  Its wild, but it turned out good!
I get a lot of requests for my "Monster Energy" bodies.  I do a special process to get the "skin" of the beast to look just right.  This is a Proline Bulldog T4.1 truck body.  Faskolor paints.
Matching pair of "Monster Energy" bodies.  Both are ProLine.  Chevy Silverado 1500 Pro2 body and a Bulldog T4.1 Stadium Truck body.
Here's the Proline Silverado 1500 Pro 2 body up close.  The "Ainokea" logo is a really cool addition. That was cut by hand using Fasmask and gobs of patience!

McAllister Racing makes some great bodies!  This is their new IndyCar body based upon the current Dallara model.  Its designed to fit onto a F104 chassis.  Fits the best with the F104W.
This is the best I could do at matching the famous Mark Donahue "Sunoco Camaro" famous in the Vintage Trans Am world.  Its an HPI 68 Camaro.  Everything you see is paint.  Wheels painted to match as well.  For a local racer in Indy.
This is a JConcepts buggy body for the +8mm chassis.  It was painted for an off-road racer in Fort Wayne, IN.  He chose the colors, and I worked up the scheme for him.  Rear wing painted black.
The original #42 for Dan Gurney was a Plymouth Cuda.  But, HPI quit making that body so we used a Dodge Challenger instead.  Pretty close.  This is for a racer in Dallas, TX for Vintage Trans Am!

"Big Ed's PIZZA" 1970 Boss Mustang airbrushed for myself to run in VTA class.  Big Ed's is a great pizza place in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  Sitting on an Associated TC3 chassis.
Custom paint masks were made to create the "Big Ed's Pizza" hood logo.  That would have been darn near impossible to cut by hand!
This is the new Protoform Camaro ZL1 body for USGT!  Wicked cool and 190mm wide.  The lines of this body are so cool that I didn't want to do something too wild with paint.  No need.  It would spoil the sleekness.
This is a Dumas HotShot Sprint converted to electric power (1500KV motor x 4S lipo!).  I though a good patriotic scheme looked awesome on this tunnel hull!
HPI RX-7 body.  The 190mm version.  This one is going on an HPI E-10 for drifting!

Same body as above, but the racer sent me a phot of it all mounted up and ready to hit the track!
Matching set of 1/8 scale buggy and SCT truck body.  Both done with Faskolor and liquid mask.  Pretty clean looking but there were many tiny details to work on.

I airbrushed this "Lightning McQueen" body for a Dad who is giving it to his son for his Birthday.  What a cool Dad!  It turned out as I'd hoped.  The body is a Parma Speedflo SCT.
This is the awesome McAllister Corvette!  Done in Faskolor paint for a local racer to run in USGT class.
12th Scale Protoform Pan Car body.  This racers colors were Red, White and Black.  A little faux carbon fiber thrown in.  I tried to follow the contours of the body to get the look I wanted.  He will be cutting it to fit.
Yes, you've seen this scheme before.  These are Proline FloTeck bodies for a local racer who loves this look.  So, I think these are bodies #7 and #8 for him.
And now for something completely different!  I've not airbrushed anything like thiis before.  Its a Traxxas Slash chassis with a hand-made body out of lexan sheet.  Really well done.  All I did was the paint.  Can't wait to see it on the track!
this is a stadium truck I airbrushed for a local racer.  Going on a Losi chassis.  He picked the colors and the "Hootie and the Blowfish" scheme.  It's wild!  You will see it on the track for sure.
Vintage Trans Am body done in the Sam Posey "77 Challenger" scheme.  Custom green color and all is paint except the front grill decal and the "Dodge" decal on the rear quarter panel.
This racer wanted a Dukes of Hazzard "General Lee" car for VTA racing.  Unfortunately, the right Charger body isn't VTA legal.  So, we did it to a HPI Cuda body.  Turned out good and people will know that Bo and Luke Duke are coming down the straightaway!
Rear view of the General Lee Cuda.  Can't wait to see it mounted and on the track!

"MOPAR" truck body. I love orange, so this body was especially cool to me. This racer asked me to do the Mopar scheme and the Super Bee logo on the side. Thanks to Rockstar Paint for help with the super-detailed Super Bee masks! Really sets off the body.
This is a HPI Honda Prelude body.  Racer picked the colors/scheme and they really look good together! He is using gold rimmed wheels, so the gold stripe down the side should set those off nice. All Faskolor paints airbrushed and I used liquid mask. Everything is paint so far.
This is a new Vaterra 69 Camaro body. Very scale. Faskolor white and Fasescent blue. (Love that blue! One of their best colors!) I did the graphics and numerals with liquid mask. The body has separate chrome plastic bumpers and side mirrors, but I'll let the racer install those himself.
One of four matching bodies I airbrushed for a father/son team here in central Indiana.  I'll get to see these on the track!  All Faskolor paint.  Neon yellow and faux carbon fiber.  They will add their team decals.

HPI 68 Camaro done in his colors.  Everything is paint, including the numerals.  All graphics hand cut.  Should be great in VTA!

This is the Pro-Line 1966 Ford Truck body mounted on my Traxxas Slash.  Perfect fit.  I had the wheels, so I made the colors match up.  Two tone neon orange/white.  Can see that on the track I bet!
This is a similar layout to the red/black PROTOForm J71 you'll seen earlier in these photos.  This one was done with Faskolor Key Lime Green and it rocks the look!  All graphics including numerals done by hand with liquid masking film.

The JConcepts Nissan Armada body is really cool!  This is the first on of these I've done.  The rear wing is especially unique.  Colors and scheme were given to me by the racer.  I just followed his directions.  I like it!

This is an HPI 66 Mustang notchback.  It was created to match a specific car the racer owned in the past.  Right down to the black vinyl roof!  Red was darkened just a bit.  Faskolor paints.
Here's a close up of the vinyl roof.  I used a special matte spray and let it land from a distance to get the kind of rough pebble look.  Turned out great.

This "GENERAL LEE" was made from an HPI Challenger body.  The real one is a Charger, but they don't have a USVTA legal Charger body.  So, a few comprises like turning the flag and a hood scoop, but it turned out well!  Thanks to Rockstar Paints for the custom masks.  That made it look great!
This is the General's owner, John, putting the finishing touches on it.  Note the custom painted wheels to really set it off!
TFinshed!  He used dish wheels and hand painted the silver on them to make them resemble the real General Lee!

I really like how this Nissan Armada body turned out.  Racer chose excellent colors.  And, but leaving out the back windows, it looks like a Dakar truck body.  It was fun to airbrush too.  Lots of details.

Still usable for most local tracks or show cars. This one is all Faskolor paints.  Skull was hand cut with liquid mask.
Really liking how my airbrushing turned out on this McAllister Corvette Daytona. It's mounted on an Associated TC6 for local USGT racing. All paint is Faskolor. Mostly neon yellow backed with white. Matches the neon wheels really well. 21.5 Thunder Power motor and the class spec Gravity tires.

So what do I paint when I don't have a body to work on?  I wanted to try a new method for flames, so I used my transmitter carrying case!  Part of the flames (red) were painted on by hand to get brush strokes, and part of the flame was airbrushed.

Well, its not a car body, but it is a nice Ibanez guitar that I airbrushed for a good friend.  Hope to see it on stage someday!
This amazing body design is a Mazda "Furai' from Speed Passion.  Wicked huh!  The guy I painted this for wanted it mostly black and silver.  I think the body looks half mechanical, half biological or insect based.  It is cool!
1966 Mustang Fastback.  Simple, clean and RED!  I tried to eliminate the use of as many decals as possible on this HPI body.  So, the stripes are paint along with window trim and bumpers.  Great lines on this classic pony car body!

A 1/8th scale electric buggy body for a local racer.  All faskolor.  Special time was taken to add the silver chrome edging to all flames and graphics.  Time consuming!

Side View of this cool "MARINES" body.  Everything you see is painted.  No decals.
One for me!  This is the McAllister Corvette Daytona.  Wicked cool body they molded I think...low and mean.  Paint is all Faskolor.  I used neon orange, metallic orange, black and there is faux orange carbon fiber in the black if you look closely.  Sitting on top of an Associated TC6.
Rear view of the McAllister Corvette Daytona.  Note the wing and spoiler system on the back.  Just like the real ones.  :)

Buggy body that I airbrushed using the "Real Flames" technique for a local racer.  Faskolor black, charcoal metallic and white.  Liquid mask used as well.
One of my favorite aspects of R/C cars and trucks is painting custom air-brushed lexan bodies for them.  You may not know that most bodies are painted from the inside.  What this does is create a custom paint job that is protected from scratches and crashes much better than if the paint was on the outside of the body.  The challange of course is that you need to layer your paints backwards from how you would traditionally if you were air-brushing full scale vehicles.  But the final result is WOW!  Even after lots of racing, rock climbing or jumping, your body still looks pretty good!

I started airbrushing cars, motorcycles, RV's, waterskis and anything else I could get my hands on in the 1970's.  I've never quite mastered free-hand flame airbrushing techniques, but I hope to someday.  I like NEON colors and bright eye-catching graphics. I can paint a body the way I want it or paint one the way you want it.  Just let me know!  You can email me HERE for a quote.  I've shipped bodies all over world to places like England, Germany  and Singapore!

Typically, my most recent bodies are towards the bottom of this page.  That's how the software loads them.
