    Ok folks, here is the deal. My wife has been battling cancer for the last 7 months, so my work log is going to be pretty sparse this year I believe. Not to mention my camera took a dive lol. But I do have a couple images I can post.

    Nice and toasty, not a 400 degree paint booth bake, but a little over 100 degrees on a rainy day. Actually works quite well.

    A few more pics to be added later, airbrushing is kicking my arse at the moment, yes a noob at it, but I have an excellent teacher. lol

    As I said being a total noob at airbrushing (and humidity here also "near 97%") was kicking my tail end, but I made it through it and do have a couple snapshots. At least I had someone that knows a lot more about airbrushing to help me, and man did I need it. He got me going in the right direction, it was hard though as I am old and stubborn. lol

    So, this is sort of what I was going for, now if the humidity don't wreak havoc on the clear-coat maybe all will be well, lol.

    Yep, the old cabinet and heat lamps seem to work pretty well, even in my humid basement.

    I used Krylon Fusion as my base coat and Aqua Flow Professional AirBrush paint ... the clear coat was Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic. I will try to add some more pictures and a better write up later this week.
