Hi All,

I just wanted to post up my latest project – a flight of Me-109G's painted for the Eastern Front. This is a tutorial work in progress and I hope to finish these up soon.

WOW!!

About your airbrush, which one do you use, and do you use a compressor? I've never tried Vallejo paints yet, but you may have sold me on them!

Thank you very much for the visuals, WWIICentral/Tanner! Looks like miscmini/Kevin has a little competition.

thumbs up

Thanks Saginaw :)

I've used a lot of airbrushes in the past 5 years and to be honest, good results can be acheived with most of them. I recently switched back to Iwata because I can get replacement parts just around the corner – I've been using the Iwata Eclipse and I'm finding that I like it much better than the $500 USD Iwata Custom Micron I used to own. I do use a compressor as well, it's an Iwata Compressor (but there are lots of other good brands out there).

I've also tried a lot of different paints in the past 5 years and Vallejo always wins out for me.

I hope to finish up these aircraft this week and then post a full tutorial.

Just a quick post to mention that Part 2 of the article is up as I've finished these Me-109's :)
