Realistic looking flames? anything for a bigginner?

Are realistic flames anything that a bigginning airbrusher should try?

I have a flat black epoxy primered hood, and think that some flames would suit it very nicely, and think realistic flames would give it some pop, and wouldn't look too strange if they were only on the hood and not the rest of the front end.

I picked up the new Sport Truck mag, and it has a pretty basic how-to, not very in depth, and the airbrusher is a 4 time DuPont Top Gun award winner...

The task seems fairly simple, lay out a freehand set of flames in red, come in with orange and blend the inside of the red, bring in some white to make the hot spots, some yellow to bring it all together.

I have almost no airbrushing experience, just playing around, but have a beginners guide to airbrushing book.

So what do you all think? Should i go for it, or try for something simpler?
