Re: .60-.90 size FW-190A
My son is working on a FW190 and he wants to airbrush it. What type of paint did you use prior to using the flat clearcoat from Great Hobbies.
Love the job you did on your plane, looks fantastic, job well done and I'm sure appreciated by everyone.

Re: .60-.90 size FW-190A
I use a lacquer base paint as it dries almost instantly, or you can use arcrylic enamel. I thin out the lacquer at about 20% with thinner, 80% paint and spray at about 40-50 lbs air pressure, now that also depends on the airbrush tip....always test on white paper first. A note on the use of lacquer paint and certain enamels...plastic and monocote may not like these chemicals, so careful around the canopy and test on on a piece of monocote first...it can burn the material and make it very brittle. As for the enamel paint a 30% to 40% reducer would also work. Now to create the oil splatter look seeping out the cowl or around the simulated sheet metal seams, a 50-50 paint/reducer works well....experience in handling the airbrush is best, so practice on paper first....most times, attempting to "wipe off" the paint and start over will totally mess it up. As for "fogging" out of the exhaust tips, or machine guns, put a small electric fan in front or the cowl, create wind and spray away, that will create a natural flow of air, thus laying the paint naturally on the aircraft. The fan will create and accent the aerodynamic features of the plane. For the flat clear application..."EASY" on the layers as lacquer dries very fast and if enamel was used for detail work, it may crack your paint. It is not recommended to use lacquer over enamel, but light, 3-4 coats should be safe....remember, it is flat, so going light and seeing streaks is ok as it will disapear when it dries.
good luck and send me pics
