    Hi I'm Steve from Massachusetts, and have been a member for several years but don't remember doing an intro.
    I guess I have been lurking in the shadows of this awesome forum and sucking up some great info about painting. I have been airbrushing for a few years as well mostly on metal panels and a few motorcycle helmets more for hobby than for business as I like to keep it fun. originally wanted to paint one of my Harleys but ended up sending it out to Scott MacKay for paint, I have since painted the belt drive and a little piece on the tank. mostly interested in biker and hotrod type artwork like skulls and fire flames clowns and the like. I have 3 Iwata Eclipse cs bushes 1 with .5 conversion and a cm-c+ micron .23 and wicked aa ci and candy20.

    Hey! No picking on the mod squad, they’re likely to throw their toys out of the pram and sulk, specially @markjthomson and @Mr.Micron lol

    Welcome Steve! I’m glad you’ve chosen to say hi and join in some more. It’s always cool to see some work posted up if you’d care to share any photos. And of the bike Scott MacKay painted today, I’m a big fan of his so would be interested to see it.

    Here are some photos of the parts that Scott painted, I took these from his facebook page they are before clearcoat.
    Scott is a great guy, He likes to teach his skill, when I went to pay him he said I could hang out and watch him paint my parts and He got a chair for me and gave me some tips. How cool is that? 12814752_1138309262868780_8116474046889431488_n.jpg
