    Hello.
    My name is Fernando Pires. I´m a painter in this hobby for about 10 years.
    I started whit and aztek A470 than a cheap ebay one, after that i had a iwata HP-CS and a Iwata Neo.
    Looking foward to add another one to the collection that will be the H&S CR plus 2 in 1. Need a smaller nozzle and needle for smaller details.

    I paint mostly rc Bodies.

    Hope to learn more things in this forum.

    Cheers
    Fernando Pires

    Welcome Fernando. If you have any pics of the RC bodies you’ve already painted then we’d love to see them.

    Hello again, yes i can show the latest works :)
    I want my shadows to be more light and smaller and i really need a new brush. My Iwatta is getting old and the price of parts to make it good its allmost the price of a new one. So i'm thiking on the H&S CR PLUS 2 in 1

    They look great, I love how strong the colours are.
    You mention the shadows. What paint system are you using? Are they Createx or a solvent brand?

    I have a few brands of paints for lexan... Faskolor, Createx, Vallejo, Proline... All water base.
    The shadows... i need to be more smooth and not so bold... its the nozzle and the needle. I'm sure of that, they are really used and the brush is tired.
    The Paint System is all backwards... because i paint from the inside of the body. Some body's are tight in some spaces and the H&S smaller cup will help reaching those spaces.

    I’ve found Createx Candy2o Black is really good for shadows. Because it’s a Candy it’s really transparent and takes a few passes to build up. It’s really easy to get nice soft shadows even painted backwards. Mixed with the 4050 UVLS clear it’ll work great for RC Bodies.
