Most of you know me as ''zueslilbuddy''

I airbrush paint lexan rc bodies, and do repairs, my rates are low and fair for the time these things take.
If I can I'll start painting for you, and make some awesome one of a kind bodies for you. (Discounts for multiple bodies of same scheme, Done at same time)
I hope to paint something AWESOME for you soon.
For pricing please click ''see more''

Rates start at basic two tone $25 for 1/10-1/8 and minis, $30 1/5
and go up from there depending on paint scheme, color changes and hours I think it will take, and if it has masked windows I can throw in painted window trims free upon request.

I also will do repairs on RC's if wanted for the reasonable rate of $7.00 per actual hour of work.
30+ years in RC and small engine mechanic by trade, owned more RC's than I can remember.

See me on facebook at link below, and feel free to join and post in my forum.

On to the pics I'll do a post per body with what the body is and paints used.




WELCOME TO

The Race Inspired Styling of The HPI 1956 Ford F-100 Monster Truck Body Just OOZES RACING with the look of going even when sitting still.

Spazstix; Window tint for fades

All paint NO stickers, the purple is actually darker than it appears in the pics.

Few with the flash made it even lighter.
