Hi guys

I have been called many things in my life, a good airbrushed is not one of them, I really should be, I have airbrushed a lot of vehicles, but I don't have a dedicated space for the airbrush, so setting up and packing down is a chore, therefore I only airbrush when I have a large batch, like any skill, you need to do it regularly to be good at it, so my quality suffers, anyway, I managed to get this batch of my 21st PD vehicles (about half of what I have) done, the vehicles without camo will have their camo hand painted as they will have hard edge schemes, and I couldn't be bothered with masking, also those vehicles are the ones I have reference pictures of, the vehicles/guns with camo applied I have no specific 21st PD reference pics for, so just gave them appropriate camo schemes. From here, after adding the hard edged camo I'll paint some details and give them all pin washes.

I agree with your comments on airbrushing. I have a similar attitude and tend to save up and batch paint. However, I think perseverance is well worth while especially for German camouflage schemes. Overall, your results look pretty good. I would keep it up.

Getting fine lines can be tricky.

I'm in the same situation, but at least your quality is looking pretty good. Nothing to worry about there.
