It has been a long winter, and spring weather did not allow me to use my airbrush outdoors. Yesterday I decided to give it a try indoors using a large fan for ventilation and wearing a N95 mask (I had one since last year).
I then proceeded to test my airbrush on two unfinished model kits:
First my yellow Monogram AT-6 (Harvard) and…
my Airfix Me 109 E.
The Harvard had a black base coat and I did not like the result after I had added four coats of yellow.
The same with the yellow nose of the Me 109.
Using Windex window cleaner I had previously took the yellow off of both planes.
I already had on hand a perfect mixture of light gray acrylic paint having the consistency of skim milk.
I then started to paint both in alternance.
This is the final result.
I then used my airbrush for the Wellington Mk X stopping after a while because I was feeling a little dizzy.
Which taught me another lesson. Next time… I will be spraying outdoors!
