    If its such a simple job, shouldn't be an issue for him to do it himself and save some money
    My sentiments exactly. Do it your self if it's so easy.

    • My issue with this dude was he thought he was going to change my mind I guess. Add more work etc. Instead of just moving on he said all that shit and to what end? I have a minimum fee for me to even do something these days. I have plenty of work on the other side of things its not like I need rc work. I will do it sure but he made it seem like he was doing me a favor by allowing me to paint his crap. I cant help but think it was a teenager.

      • Not surprised one bit by this after dealing with the R/C car crowd for years I can attest to the fact that they are "different" for lack of a better word. Flyers seem to have a better grasp of the work and cost involved in detailing our work.

          • You know what? He can go somewhere else. I always figure that you get what you pay for and he'll probably find that out the hard way. Personally, I love the pilot I had you paint for me and I know that there is no way I could have done myself. I used to run across that all the time in the art world. You'd have a painting or a drawing that you could spend months on and people would want to pay $50!! Framed of course!!!
            The argument was that they could buy a Brenders or a Bateman instead, which I replied that if you were really looking for an oversized postcard that thousands of other people have hanging on their walls, feel free. But I can guaran-dang-tee that you are not going to lay your cheap little hands on an original Brenders or Bateman for no $50 framed so why compare apples to oranges!
            Stick to you guns, cheap bastards are just a way of life. There are plenty out there, myself included, that were amazed at the value we received.

                    • AkumaZeto PM me, I have an idea.

                      Hardway I believe most of us use Chris Wolfe's 1/10 resin bust from JetHangar.com

                        • I'm up for painting Armour as well folks. Just let me know. I currently have the entire Mig Line of pigments and effects.

                          • I like Mig's products. They tend to go a long way, and some of the effects can't be replicated easily with other means, at least not with my meager skills.

                            I'd love to see some of your armor models! Now that we've got RC tanks on the way, they're excellent bases for custom paintjobs that has a better chance of lasting longer than an airplane.
