Sneak peek...next airbrushed stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I had one painted last year, and loved how it turned out. I got the itch for another project recently, so I contacted the painter again (Andre Breaux from Excess Paint) and gave him a few ideas. I wanted something with a P51 Mustang theme...this is a teaser shot he just sent me, can't wait to see it finished now!




It's a PWS Raptor stock for anybody wondering...

That is sweet. I keep trying to come up with a idea on a stock for Andre to do for me.

Show us a pic when you get it put together.

P51 Mustang was the inspiration, but there are quite a few different planes with similar styles.

Another shot after the clearcoat. Should have it here next week, can't wait...my son is going to go nuts when he sees it.

I forgot the Mustangs had the same profile pipes on the cowl.

Looks absolutely stunning, I'll bet it's even better in person.

So Cool

If he hadn't mentioned the P-51 in his post, I would have guessed the P-40 due to the pipes and the Flying Tigers shark teeth. That is one sweet looking stock. I contacted Andre on doing one for me. I want a Robert E. Lee scene on mine. See what he comes up with.

Yeah, I saw that too... the day after I posted my query.

I'm highly educated... and not too bright!

I would shoot down a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 for one. Amazingly artistic.
