So my day sucked. I had the hole model taped off, and the paint all mixed up in my airbrush. I went to turn on my compressor and nothing came out. I think the diaphram took a crap.

Thanks for all of the feed back.

       I must say that I am really nervous about the next step though. I don't know if it would be better to paint the dark sea blue on the top and then the lighter blue on the sides or if I should do the sides first...

What would you recommend?

Do the sides first Snow as it's the lighter color. When doing multiple color schemes you always or most of the times want to start with the lightest shade first. If you start with the darker shade and then try to apply the lighter shade it will take more coats to cover the darker areas as if you start with the lighter shades it's much easier to paint over those and not have bleed through. Hope this makes since to you

Good luck!
Cheers
Neil

I finally painted and cleared the engines. Now it is time to weather them.

I painted the three tone paint job, and I really like the way it turned out. I still have to clear coat it though.

Oh very nice!! Love the paint scheme!!
Top job Brandon, looks like that compressor kicked in just nicely too. Damn this is going to be a good looking plane all weathered up.

I started to weather the engines. I don't know if this is good enough, if you have any ideas I would love to hear them.

I started weathering today. There is still so much to do.... I am starting to become really proud of this one.

On a related topic. I think it would be cool if for the next group build we did any make or version of the F-16.

What do you guys think?
