Yeah, can't wait to try some of those late war German spray camo paint jobs. I have two Hetzers just waiting for me to get a little practice in before attempting the "ambush" pattern

1) learn to clean your airbrush very well.
2) learn how to thin your paint (if needed)
3) learn how to clean your airbrush very well
4) have an extra bottle or two as back up
5) have a separate tool box for your airbrush equipment
6) learn how to turn the regulator off to the airbrush while you change bottles etc.
7) insulate your air compressor for noise... don't bother the wife!!!

Oh no, Loco it looks like we have more competition. I think we might have to kick it up a knotch. :Tout:

Good luck with the air brush Stalker. We will be waiting to see your next project. :D

Can I still stop by the "brush" shop for coffee at least?

you had to start the pun didn't you. I think you're just blowing air in our faces anyway. You just need to compress or expand your excuse. You'll need to produce some painting before you tank this subject. Just tell the truth and don't coil around your story. Try to build some pressure, thinner your story, and cover everything in one coat. Your Prime or main objective it to try something new. If you make a mistake, you can always paint over it. Just don't brush us off, and not post anything. You'll have a dual action now that you have an airbrush. I know you've bottled up all of your talent to post here. Just make sure all of your connections are tight here...you wouldn't want to bleed any air you're built up here. So make sure you Post Super Images for us to see. Mix your postings a bit, and watch your gravity towards the 'old ways'. Feed us some pixs, and make sure to remove the vapors.

good luck!

No airbrush examples yet; still getting the hang of it through practice. So here are some old fashioned "brush job."


My 13 year old son finally finished the last craft fair Zvezda KV-1 (thanks Ober). The other son has yet to start his M4.
