Julian Herrero aka Yuri A treu classic from the past
11. August at 06:44:31
Guy Rump Thanks for looking Julian. Very different to the new Airfix kits. This was my first attempt at airbrushing so I thought I would start with an older kit. The Humbrol paints were difficult trying to get them to spray whereas the Tamiya and Vallejo paints went through the airbrush with ease. The canopy had no frame lines on it so it was pretty much guess work looking at the picture on the instructions where to position the mask pieces.
11. August at 23:13:30
Julian Herrero aka Yuri Indeed ,,, Humbrol enamels must be thinned at leats to a ratio 2 to 1 to floww properlqy thru an airbrush. Good luck with your next project.
11. August at 23:16:41
Guy Rump Thanks Julian :)
11. August at 23:18:38
William Rump I see what you meant about the poor quality of Humbrol paint, particularly on the underside of your model. All in all though the final result is more than satisfactory for your first attempt at airbrushing. I will guess that you will have learned new techniques and spraying abilities in your practises. Look forward to your next efforts as I am sure you will be move to being an expert airbrusher before long. Of course this will mean more expense as you improve your equipment!!! Well done Guy.
12. August at 13:15:47
Guy Rump Thanks Bill :)
12. August at 13:17:30
William Rump Whilst I am getting rather jealous of your progress, I advise that I have not done a lot in the modelling line over the past few months as I have been somewhat under the weather. I looked longingly at my next project (Airfix Spitfire) and have decided it is time to get on with it. So hopefully i will have some info in the near future. Keep up the good work
12. August at 13:33:46
William Rump Forgot to mention - Your canopy on this model messerschmitt is pretty good considering the shortcomings of the frame lines.
12. August at 13:37:47
Guy Rump Thanks Bill and glad you have started modelling again. :)
12. August at 18:54:34
Julian Herrero aka Yuri Thats true William ,,,, Humbrol enamels are not the easiest paints for airbrushing ,,, looking at the pictures it seems that Guy has not thinned the paint enough and that psi was on the high side ,,,, Waiting or your next project Guy ....
12. August at 21:06:45
Guy Rump I think you are right about thinning and the psi being too high when applying the Humbrol paint Julian, I used acrylics rather than enamels and thinned using water when I read that using thinners is no good for Humbrol acrylics. For all the grey violet and green, they both went on ok for the first coat but there were issues with both afterwards. The light blue was a problem from the outset! I think I will only use Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics for my next project which will be an old Airfix Fairey Battle. :)

Martin Oostrom Welcome Guy, you seem to like Hellcats :)
Where did I see that Jerry Stuka before?

If you need (advanced) tips, check out Paul Budzik's site: paulbudzik.com/tools-techniques/index.html

Guy Rump Thank you Martin :) really anything that flew in WW2 is what I like.

David Januska Nice collection and photos. I'm glad someone still hand brushes :). But sometimes it is hard to work only with brushes I'm getting ready for airbrush attempts :(.
26. May at 19:53:39
Guy Rump Thanks David :) I think airbrushing will be something I will have to try sooner or later, especially for some of the camouflage schemes!
27. May at 20:20:53
Martin Oostrom I forgot some basic sites: https://howtoairbrush.com/ & https://sites.google.com/site/donsairbrushtips/home
Here you can find some nice beginner stuff.

David Januska One cannot stop the evolution ;), but some times it is hard to learn completely new things. You cannot learn "old dog" new things:-D
