Scooby Petes atempts at paint thread.

After the Audi R8

This is my 2nd attempt.

I bought mini miniznewb's F1 2nd and then bought the Mclaraen mp4-25 white body and this is the result of my 2nd air brush attempt. need to work on the masking and the mix of the paint more.
Again my main problem is impatience.

Small update now finished my 2nd Audi R8.
Had issues with too thin paint again so had to strip it back and start again, didn't do the best job. The 2nd Audi is the one without Black side pannelsand no wing mirros,which I lost

Here's my 1st Attempt at Candy Red.
The Passenger door went a bit Funny but with the Black added it really works well.
Yes I admit the black looks scrappy, but the red had already gone funny and I just wanted to get it done so used the wrong size brush etc...
Oh and the wheels are not the correct offsets either.
