F4U-1/2 Progress Report Day 20 – F4F-4 Wildcat – Airbrushing and cleaning up after…

I am still learning how to use my airbrush this Monday morning. I have to admit it’s still a stressful experience. I put on a paint mask since I was working indoors, I opened the window to let the fresh air in, and I used a fan for ventilation.

I did a final gray coat on the underside of the Wildcat.

Then I added a base coat on the Zero.

I used poster blue tack for the first time for masking.

Everything went well until I cleaned the airbrush. I noticed the tip was clogged with paint residue and I could not clean the tip. I had forgotten to use a paint strainer thinking I did not have to.

It won’t happen again.
