Revamped my painting area this weekend and had a first go using my new Iwata airbrush!! It was a little tricky finding the right position for the needle but after some practice I found a good balance of line and flow. Only the topsides, tail and blue separation under the exhausts were masked. The spinner was hand painted and the “chipping” (yes I know it’s a little sloppy) was applied before the under-decal coat of future was applied. Next up will be decals! I’ll use the kit decals and cut apart the “8” to make a “3”.
