  1. My mistake. FT decal parts given to me. Collin
  2. Leftover Two Bobs I believe, donated by a member here on the boards. Cheers Collin
  3. Small Update. Still need to do all the little things (paint the air refueling hatch, static wicks, gear and gear doors....you know, all the little things that take forever to get done!! Cheers Collin
  4. I thinned the AK paints with Mr. Leveling Thinner to get the fine painting done (about 1/3 paint to 2/3rd thinner). Then shot un-deluted paint straight from the jar (maybe a touch of thinner ust to improve the flow) and that started to give the "blotchy" look that I was trying to replicate. Then I mixed in a touch or darker or lighter grey and added some touch up paint "blotches" as well. Thinned AK shot pencil think lines from both the 770 and 20/20 (both of them I think are .2mm). I shot some paint from my Tamiya .3mm tip, worked like a champ there as well. I just have to slow down and be patient with multi-color schemes. That really is my limiting factor. Took me about a week to get to this point from a dark grey primer coat. Got the wheel wells done this morning before work. Tonight will be clear coat and decals over the weekend. Weathering will be a very very light and non-contrasting panel line wash. Cheers Collin
  5. OOB build. Wanted to try my hand at freehand airbrushing with the new AK paint line. Looks ok to me. Cheers Collin
  6. Very nice airbrush work. I’m painting up a NSAWC F-16A right now, putting my 20/20 (and 770) to the test. What are you thinning with? Cheers Collin
  7. I just started shooting AK Colors thinned with Mr Thinner with my 20/20 & PS-770. Game changer on the fine lines you can get. Take the crown off the 770, and you can draw pencil lines. Just don’t drink coffee before hand. The lines are so fine you will leave waves in your airbrushing. Cheers Collin
  8. Sotar 20/20. Probably the best bang for the buck when it comes to a fine tip airbrush for fine work. Cheers Collin
  9. I’ve got some AM I never used for my build (see the Display Case) in the CAVE. Let me take a look at what I’ve got and it’s yours. PM me your info. Cheers Collin

  11. Stashes aren't normal, they are expected. Cheers Collin
