Yup ^^

I started off with an amateur looking tank, was good for a couple weeks the. I started looking at pro tanks, always black or blue back ground and they look great.


The way I did mine is I just went to a dollar store got a 1 dollar roller 1 dollar Crylon paint (black) and just rolled her on.

The beauty about the Crylon paint is that it comes right off by scratching it with a razor blade so you can Change it in minutes.
