I saw those gears online somewhere, wanted to do the same. Very simple and light!

I see you are using Wicked colors. Can you comment any differences between Wicked and Classic Createx colors?
What additives do you use?

I love the wicked colors because even though they are a tad thicker, they are much smoother. I only use wicked black and white. The rest is all classic createx. I use auto air color reducer for the black and white wicked paints however. Great combination.

Thanks for you input.
To me it seams classic white behaves different from all other classic colors. Specially for painting lightning strikes. It beeds up on the tip quickly, while other colors normally donít.

The wicked white will still build up on the tip, but it lasts longer before it does. I get into the habit of pulling it off with my finger nails after every streak of lightning.

For myself? I wish! And yes, just more neon and saturation. The tobacco sunburst has a bit more of a brown to it.

Thanks! I have a thread over on RCG documenting the build, but I am out of carbon for a few weeks, so I am working on a 1s contra system for the time being.

Here's the RCG thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2593792
