First time using the airbrush. Put on primer with .35 needle. Encountered all the beginners problems, too thin, spiders,...

It's all about practicing. You will get better from time to time. I still make lots of mistakes using my airbrush and I have already built quiet a few models 🤷‍♂️

Oh, I already learned to really go easy on the 'trigger'. Take my time.
Big problem I have at the moment is light, as in, I don't have enough on the model when brushing. Makes it hard to see when the paint starts coming in.

First kit after many, many years of no modelling. I bought 5 cheap 1:72 kits as practice material. Have never used an airbrush before, so a lot to learn.
Cockpit went pretty well, handpainted it with Revell enamel. Forgot to put on a varnish before glueing it in though. Oops.
Used liquid mask on the canopy and glued it on
Then forgot to drill the holes in the wings for the rockets. So it will just be bombs then 🙂
Putting on the primer (Vallejo grey) was a lesson in airbrushing. Practiced on plastic sheets before that of course, but still a crash course in thinning and air pressure.
The olive drab on top was troublesome too, as expected. The bottom neutral grey went a lot smoother, figuring out the low pressure (12psi or thereabouts) seems best.
The yellow has trouble covering. Have to redo that.
Lessons so far: filling the gaps need to be better, surface needs to be smoother (wing roots). Low pressure on the brush.
Everything close to the fuselage is hard to get an even coat on. Masking needs to be much better.

Thanks guys - I tried this idea from JonBius https://www.jonbius.com/2018/08/22/amtech-1-48-p-40e-its-olive-but-not-drab/

The actual finishing layer is quite bad on the model, it collected a lot tiny dust particles, baked into the varnish... I have to pay more attention to this next time, it has been a challenge for me recently to avid this problem.
