My friend had some machine-thingies lying around, and thought I should practice on them - so I did =)

With this one I hoped to do it fast, and with a high contrast between the airbrush and the actual brush. The mini took exactly 68 minutes to get to this stage - priming included. Thats the fastest I've done ever. Even thought it's not done yet, I would put it on the table like this (when it gets its arms) - although I would not know what game I would be plaing Just Kidding

There is no wash or inks inlcluded in the process.

Thanks!

Also I'm learning the vallejo air colours - they are awsome! The "aluminium" is somewhat crazy as it covers EVERYTHING!

Looks great. What colours did you airbrush it with? I'm impressed.

How have you found cleaning your airbrush so far? Mine always seems to clog up, causing me lots of wasted time. Airbrushing is fast. Cleaning is slow...

Vallejo Air:

Olive Green
Green Zinc Chrom
Pale Green (and finish with a drop of white)

I have a bucket with water I use frequently beside my table. And I flush through with window cleaner between changing colours. I take the needle out - spray with window cleaner and wipe of with a cloth. Pit in again and new color.

At last I let it soak in some cleaning fluid / water for 15 -20 miniutes and put it away - works so far...

(I have experienced some clotting, but only when I was lazy with the clening (taking out the needle)).

I don't care what air brush you use I have never not had some clotting.
We used the old Testors model masters air brush at work alot it was a tank and hardly had any problems but i think somehow it was needle-less.
