Sounds like you're set for dope.  I'd suggest a inexpensive airbrush to start with.  Harbor Freight has a nice starter airbrush for around $10.00. Click Here  Low cost and has adjustable paint flow.  If your compressor has a pressure valve I'd recommend lowering the pressure around 20 psi.  This would be ok for starting and you can always upgrade in the future.  Lots of fellows move up to dual action airbrushes at a later date.  It takes some practice to develope the techniques you'll need.  I suggest getting a couple foam boards from the Dollar Store for practicing on.

Tom, it helped with a few milligrams....and I have a order in for a couple of 10mah batteries  Tongue...I need more power from my motor...different prop maybe?...or wire the two 10mah to double the omph Roll Eyes
I'm still trying to decide about a airbrush...I have a small hobby piggy bank, and I have my small shop compressor, so if I can get a gun, I'll dope finish my models....I have a friend here that builds full size rag-wing planes....he has gallons of dope Cheesy Grin

Your faux engine looks great.  Were you able to balance it with this addition?

News is....she did fly!!!.....I might need a nudge more power, hard to tell outside, there was a small breeze.....trim the prop?...or trim the prop some.....she goes straight away....slowly.....maybe a smaller batt?....I'm using a 50mah....I'll look for a 30 or smaller....
But she sails steady  Grin
