These days I try not to pre paint anything before construction and I know if I attempt to paint with a brush after completion of a project, it can be very frustrating. Last year I started to collect a few more tools such as an new air brush, compressor, spray booth, etc.
Last night I finally dug out my new toys / tools and attempted to paint probably the worst example to paint after completion. But I was very happy with the results. I still need to add the browns & yellow oxides for weathering.
Looking forward to painting some of the completed machinery in the near future.
At the moment , everything is setup in my office, so when the mood strikes, I will spend a few minutes air brushing and having another cup of coffee.
