I guess I should break my streak on WordPress as my brother is coming over today.
On Friday I will probably work with my Badger airbrush which has been long overdue.
I have hand painted the Corsair with the same color as Dufilho’s Wildcat. I will take a photo tomorrow.
I have worked on the Corsair canopy again to scrape away the excess paint seen before.
I will take a photo tomorrow when I will start a new streak on WordPress.
The temptation was there to use my Badger 350 airbrush once again for the nose and a paint brush for the tail. First I used the airbrush to paint the nose and the tail yellow.
I then mixed the yellow paint with some orange paint and I used a paint brush for the tail.
I then sent an email to Joe Palladino with those photos.
I think I should calm down a little and wait for this…
I know it will be much easier to work with my airbrush using this.
I have seen lots of videos.
I had tested my Badger 350 airbrush before when I put a black primer coat. The results were very good, but I then added a coat of silver with a paint brush with mixed results.
This morning I have received my braided airbrush hose from Amazon. I decided to test my airbrush again over my Monogram P-47 D even if my 1/4 oz cup had not arrived.
I used the jar adapter.
It worked fine enough.
I am still thinking if I should paint different shades of silver, but I am not there yet. Sometimes you need to step back a little and let the experience sink in.
Next step I will be painting the yellow and red nose, and the orange tail.
I wish I knew.
Going on the Internet and on YouTube since yesterday, everyone seems to have the right solution.
Windshield washer, Windex, Future, homemade thinner, etc.
What I know is that I will have to experiment since I have lots of different acrylic paints and the last thing I want is to clog my airbrush and put it in its box for the next 30 years.
I still have a jar of my precious Tamiya paint thinner which worked fine the last time, but someone is selling it on Amazon for 57$.
This is not an option. Since I bought some items for my airbrush yesterday, I have time to ponder over this before finding the right solution.
