  1. Not without sealing the holes you made in the stencil. I haven't tried it but you might be able to cut the stencil. Cover the stencil with electrical tape. Then vacuum form. It might work, it might not. If you try it let us know what the results are.
  2. I use a MCU clear for my top coat and I wait 1 to 2 days after painting to clear coat. I use Createx paints.
  3. I'm watching this! Tons of great info. Thank you Dave and Mark!
  4. Oh man! I must have missed it.
  5. This is what stencils are for......at least that's how I do them. I am not as talented as some are with an airbrush.

    Like BBK I let my lures dry a day or two before clearing with KBS.
  7. I agree with you getting comfortable with a CAD package. I would suggest Fusion 360 and it is free for hobby use. Nice work BlackJack!
  8. As Vodkaman said, we will need pics to help. The couple things to look at is body shape, bill size/shape, and tow point.
  9. That's awesome! Congrats Jaw Jacker!
  10. Since it is cold outside I will do the next batch in my barn. I will try the salsa lid or the bottom of a pop can. I might even use a cold pack to place the lid on to keep it colder to slow down the reaction.
  11. I use this one: California Air Tools 5510a https://www.californiaairtools.com/ultra-quiet-series-of-air-compressor-contractor-grade/1-0-hp-air-compressors/cat-5510a/
  12. I use a mason jar. The airbrush fits in it, I can seal it up and use the restorer multiple times.
  13. With the help of this site and many hours of research I took an idea and turned it to reality. I designed the body and bill, tested different weighting, and different materials for the body. I would like to add more designs but I want to get a little inventory with this model first. I have learned so much from this forum and continue to learn from it. I am happy the few times I have been able to add good content to posts. I still have a ton to learn about painting!
  14. Yes I am using the epoxy to install the bill not top coating baits. Thank you. I will try the suggestions of keeping it cool and spreading it out thin. I have some scrap pieces of aluminum I can put the mixed epoxy on.
