    1. Use liquid mask
    2. I like Parma FasKolors
    3. In my opinion.. Iwata airbrushes are the best
    4. Just draw on the outside of the body with a sharpie marker
    5. I have a million tips.. I wouldn't know where to begin.

    I'm not Von Hoss but I don't see any reason I can't chime in. The best liquid mask is called "Bob Dively Liquid Mask" and anyone who carries Great Planes as a distributer can get it, or you can get it off of Tower. As for Aztec brushes, I think they're OK. I think most of what you're paying for is a bunch of accessories you'll never use. I personally like my Paasche VL which i've been using for a couple months. But the Iwatas are also excellent (I know a lot of the professional painters have 2-3 airbrushes for differenr jobs.)

    Bob Dively Liquid Mask is what I use.

    I'm not familiar with Aztec. I use an Iwata Eclipse and an Iwata Micron... both are awesome.

    paint (with a sponge brush) about on a coat and let dry (or dry with a hairdryer)
    repeat about 3-4 times. and you are done.
    make shure to let a good bit of time for drying b4 you try to cut and peal it or it will peal up other parts.

    also take your time! a good body will only come to thoes who are patient.

    Best tip I can give for liquid mask is be sloppy. The sloppier the better. The stuff just peels off better when it's thick, so if you use thick sloppy coats, it'll be easier to use. Take it from someone who went to thin once.
