Hi everyone hows it going?
So today marked a massive success in the workshop!
I managed to airbrush an entire Lancasterwing : ) I gave the airbrush a good clean out and coupled it up to the now nonleaking air compressor. I just feel I have a lot to learn about the consistency of the paint going through the airbrush as it came out quite runny : ( If anyone has any suggestions it would be great to hear from you…
In the meantime I’m going to fire some queries at Google and see what I get back. I also have these pipettes which should come in handy when measuring out the paint and water:
Here is a picture of my progress with the Lancaster wing, enjoy!
So how’s it going?
So I’ve got this Badger 250-2 model airbrush (externally mixing) and a can of propellant and while I’m building the Messerschmitt I thought I would have a go at airbrushing the wing of my Lancaster bomber. So here is the airbrush kit ready to go:
Had a look at some tips on the net, and the one on eHow.com about mixing 50% water with 50% Acrylic paint did seem like a sensible suggestion so I ran with that. So I managed to paint one piece of wing and also made a hell of a mess in the back garden in the process:
And then my pressure starting failing, so I did some research and I think in the long term, I should invest in a compressor. This video seemed cool:
If anyone has any suggestions please so let me know.
