The Pro-Line 14RS Dakar Rally Clear Body, is her body of choice, she likes how the lines flow and that it is different from a truck. Her vehicle of choice is the versatile Traxxas Slash 4×4. This is a photo post of my wife’s second attempt at painting a RC body and her first time using an airbrush. She wasn’t happy with her first attempt, due to the paint not being pink and more of a fluorescent orange.
