R/C CAR ACTION
I sent in photos of the
custom airbrushed Black Cat body that I did for my son's
stock Slash. R/C Car Action magazine featured it as a "Reader's Ride of the Month" which was really cool!
I had only hoped to just get it published. You can also find more pictures of the body
HERE on Black Cat Firework's website.

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.
