    This is my first test a real air brushing use a test aircraft that I always use before the real thing so I just need some opinion on the bits I have tried.
    I have had a go at persuading and the mottled German camouflage help and advice much appreciated 20170501_141609.jpg 20170501_141620.jpg

    Look okay to me Peter, the preshading looks good although maybe a tad heavy. The mottling looks okay, just small burst and build up as needed.

    Poor ME110 :D

    Looks like the pressure needs reducing a little.

    Is it a compressor or in a can? If it is in a can the flow rate and control is more difficult.
