Painting : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hi. I must admit I'm not the best painter and this question shows. I resently purchased IMPACK intermodal cars (undecorated) and thought I'd practice painting and decaling on them for TTX. I am going to buy an airbrush but I thought that I'd just brush paint them. This is seeming not to go so well as of right now. I can see my brush strokes and the paint seems not to be going on thick enough or is this a first timer's error. Please, I know there are some of you out there that are awesome HO scale model painters that still use brushes. Please, any and all tips would be useful.

Thanks, Jason
