[Spectre Strike] WIP 8 - with the speed of AIR


Another Update! This time let me show you what i've done in a day of painting.

Airbrushing is a pretty straight forward thing so I don't think I should describe how I did it, right?
But I can list the colours I used, I will let you guys guess wich is used where but that should be an easy one.

Here we go:
Tamiya X-2 White
Agama A41 M Air Superiority Blue
Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue
Tamiya XF-80 Royal Light Grey
Tamiya XF-53 Neutral Grey
Tamiya X-10 Gunmetal

I was thinking about trying pre-shading but my airbrushing skils aren't up to the task yet (neither is my pseudo-Iwata on such a small kit). Hmm this post is missing something... what could it be... oh! PICTURES!!!!











Now my toughts about the couolrs i used for the first time:

Agama Air Superiority Blue (FS 35450 if anyone cares) is definitly a nice shade and i'm getting more and more impressed on how nice those paints are for airbrushing, it feels better to airbrush them if that makes any sense, and somehow they aren't clogging in an airbrush and are easier to clean, and as I said before, when handpinting the brush strokes are hardly seen, and even that only sometimes. Definitly worth trying if you guys can get some of them. Oh and most important - they are cheap, wich is even more suprisng.

Tamiya X-10 Gunmetal, can't say it looks bad or anything, but I was kinda expecting it be a little bit darker OOJ (out of the jar), it may appear similar to metalic grey but I do like later one a lot more.

Tamiya XF-80 Royal Light Grey, definitly woth getting, it is a very interesting shade of grey, I'm painting for only few years but this is the first time I get shade like that OOJ, it is a very warm grey, like it would have just a little bit  of yellow or orange in to it, but it is still definitly grey.

That should be all for this update, next up is detail painting and putting the metal parts on, then gloss coat. After that you guys can expect another update.
Aulon out.
