Anton Started some airbrushing today, but I just couldn't get it to flow right. I've airbrushed with Tamiya paints before, though it still feels very much like experimenting. No matter how I mixed it it eventually got stuck. I tried with some drops of Vallejo Chrome and it flowed perfectly, so I guess that little bottle of Tamiya X-18 is just about 8 years too old ;) I had to order a new bottle of X-18 and a new bottle of thinner, I also ordered a kit of basic Vallejo Air bottles.

I managed to get the exhaust and engine covered with some unholy mix of Vallejo Chrome and semi gloss black. The engine looks great, very dark grey metal-like. Unfortunately it really should be solid black to look authentic. I didn't really like how the exhaust turned out, I think I'll just go for flat black.

So - todays lessons: Either some of my paints are too old (7-8 years) or the difference between colors is greater than I thought. I've had nothing but great experiences using my newer Tamiya paints, especially flats.

Vallejo Chrome mixes very, very good with Tamiya Semi Gloss Black. Makes for a kick ass Gun Metal.

Chris Greathouse The top of that engine is beautiful!

Anton Thank you so much! Next time I will try to thin the paint before brushing. There's quite a cool pattern molded in the plastic but the thickness of the paint filled it unfortunately.

It baffles me how different the paints are, my flat aluminum from Tamiya is soooo much harder to get a nice finish with compared to Tamiya Gold!

Anton Finished this one yesterday. I can't really say "rushed it", but I didn't care to correct errors I made when I started it 7 years ago so the end result is... OK. Learned so much - second completed kit ever!

Chris Greathouse Still looks great! Well done!

Anton Started this kit 2012, painted "box art" with rattle cans in a proper paint box, was very pleased with the result. First time using Tamiya Polishing Compound but I used too much pressure and damaged the paint. I had no longer access to the paint box and was devastated, I put it back in the box where it's been resting until I decided to pick up the hobby again 2019. Instead of focusing on perfect result I've finally realized that everything is about learning, and I'm now enjoying the lessons from this kit.

Anton My first completed kit, painted the body with Tamiya TS-42 Coral Blue since my local hobby shop didn't have the TS-23 Light Blue which I think would've looked better. A lot of beginners mistakes but all in all I'm pleased with the model, and I had a lot of fun!
