Curious - why not just airbrush the light paint in the center, and then paint the tire on the spinner?   :?

I like the spinner, BTW.  :D

No airbrush...

Anyway, I do both colors on the spinner because it reduces handling, and the spinner holds the wheels for me.

Excellent idea (as usual). I have oodles of those geared motors and I have feeling that next time I need to paint some small round object, there will be one fewer unused motor in the bag.
