I was moving along quite well until this step.
The interior parts had to be painted with zinc chromate before the fuselage being glued. I had two choices, either using a paintbrush or my 30 year-old airbrush with all that I bought this year to use it efficiently.
Setting up took a bit of time…
I made this spraying booth to work with…
I opened up the top to let the light in.
Next came mixing 50% acrylic paint with 50% Tamiya acrylic thinner. That was the dreaded part because I did not want to clog my airbrush.
How did I succeed?
I think I did well. Then came the cleaning part which they say is the most important part of airbrushing.
Painting the cockpit details with a paintbrush.
