Nice smooth finish. Making good warnish coat with AB - one thing which I can't do yet. I don't know why, but for now I can only do it with spray cans.

I’ve had trouble over the years spraying various paints and other materials. I guess it comes down to balancing each material with your airbrush, compressor, environment, and loads of other factors that all play into AB use. I’m shooting in the dark here but I do feel your pain.

I think it is problem with wet spraying. I used to spray dry. Then I make thin coats and dry each one with air. But varnish should be spraying wet and I can't do it yet.

I also struggle to get a smooth finish for decals and weathering as I’m used to spray thin and “dry” coats. It actually looks more shiny on the pictures as is reality 😅

My worst problem with varnish costs was (is) wanting a wet coat and over spraying and producing whitish finishes because the coat is too thick. I finally started slowing wayyyyy down and taking my time.

Practice on a piece of styrene or an old model if you have one

Hi, I was not aware how difficult it could be to apply the gloss coat varnish at the end of the paint work. The varnish dryied before touching the surface at the junction of the wings and the fuselage, and I was horrified with the result. The fisnish was not smooth at all... It was almost like sand paper [eek][eek][eek]. So I had to strip off all the paint and nearly lost my mind [bawl][rofl][biggrin]. More seriously, for my second atempt, I used Pledge Floor Gloss, sprayed it with a lower pressure, pointing the airbrush from the inside to the outside of the angles (trying to avoid creating vortex with the fumes), and at least I tried to keep the surface wet during spraying. Don't know what exactly improved the application (maybe the Pledge is easier to apply) but I was far more satisfied with the final result.

If the varnish, or anything you are spraying for that matter, drys before hitting the surface, its usually one of two reasons or both:

1. Your AB is too far from the surface so that as the material travels through the air it drys and creates a rough, sandy surface.

2. the mix may be too thin

Nice! Do they actually have asymmetrical loadout, like Ra'am version? I really like how this kit looks and builds. Thinking about get Israel one.

Hey Fabian,
We are like vultures. We will come running for anything you toss out. Nice pictures. I love tanks and ordinance. Great details on the weapons.

Sorry, I have no idea [smile]. But you should definitely get the Israeli one! I used a load out form the instructions: 1x AN/AAQ-14 Targeting Pod, 1x AN/AAQ-13 Navigation Pod, 2x 610 Drop Tanks, 8x GBU-12, 2x AIM-9L, 2x AIM-120B. And you get a lot more options with the kit.
