Well, it's about time I reinvested in airbrushing. Twenty years ago I started airbrushing German tanks. Then...career, marriage, kids and divorce pushed it to the last thing I was going to do in the hobby. But, with the unrelenting march of time, I pulled my model H Paache of the shelf and fired up the bicycle air compressor. My first victim was a 1/72 or HO Atlantic Tiger I had sitting in a box. What do you think?
For those of you unfamiliar with Atlantic. It is the kit in the middle. The one to the left is a 1/72 Tiger from Italeri. The one on the right is a 1/76 Airfix kit.
Not terrible. I need more practice with the airbrush. The paints we cheap acrylics from Hobby Lobby. So, it was a struggle to mix properly and not clog the brush. I have since ordered a set of paints from Vallejo.
Next up, I tried my hand on this kit. My son built one...sorta, I finished it. I figured it was the prefect test case. The struggle I had was the air pressure. I got a few spit marks. I recently ordered a smaller air compressor for airbrushing. I hope it helps.
Paint on and stay calm...
