    Looking good so far Simon. I'll be following closely as I've just got my first airbrush and I'm a bit apprehensive about using it. So far all that's been through it is some primer...and I felt I got better results using halfords rattle can primer, maybe I didn't scrub all the grease off the figure.

    Thanks,

    when i got mine i soaked it for a little while in some dilluted winolene/windex which seem to do the trick on that front, in terms of using it, make sure your air psi is at a good level between 15-30psi usually best and then practice on paper or spares you have this will help you with thinning of paint to get the right mixture

    good luck (y)

    Cheers

    Thanks for the advice, I've been spraying at about 10-15 psi..maybe that's my problem. Day off on Friday so I'll be mostly spraying stuff ;)

    I scrubbed my figure with soapy water and a toothbrush (used the wife's, gotta think of my health and well-being), I'll try soaking the next one first.

    Thanks again,
    Billy

    gave the helmet a coat of chain mail

    WP_20140109.jpg

    next job was to base coat the fieldblause using vallejo field blue
    WP_20140110 1.jpg WP_20140110 1.jpg

    Removed the masking tape and guess what i found more bl@#dy air bubbles so more filler then touched up

    WP_20140110 2.jpg WP_20140110 3.jpg

    next job will be masking to spray camouflage pattern

    Haven't done much on this one for awhile as been moving around my workroom,

    so here's what i have done recently

    using this image as a guide
    WP_20140110 4.jpg
    i used the technique shown in this thread to paint the splinter pattern
    http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/1-16-fallschirmjager.60243/

    First i masked off the base colour in order to form the splinter blocks
    WP_20140123_001.jpg WP_20140123_002.jpg WP_20140123_003.jpg

    I then airbrushed a coat of green using model air us dark green

    this was then masked off in key places to form the green blocks
    WP_20140123_004.jpg WP_20140123_005.jpg

    This was then airbrushed again with a mix of mud brown and hull brown

    WP_20140123_007.jpg WP_20140123_010.jpg WP_20140123_008.jpg WP_20140123_009.jpg
    the masking removed the the effect is shown, next is to shade and highlight all blocks on the smock, highlight shade areas of base exposed and then paint freehand the rain marks.

    more to follow soon

    cheers
