Shaping up nicely. I'm with you. I have used an H forever. I added the chromed brass back end, replacing the red plastic one, and it has a nice balance. I was convinced to get a Micron B and have fiddled with it for a few months to ok results but for basic painting I resort to the H. Simple to use and clean. Thinning, air pressure and masking lets me accomplish finer work with only things like Luftwaffe mottling and tight feathered edges calling for the Iwata.

Thanks Steve. The H is a nice gun. That being said I just need to get used to the New one, but still can use the H in a Crisis  8)

Great, Rick!

If you are having trouble with your airbrush perhaps I could persuade you to come over to the dark side and brush paint .......!?

Regards

Dave

Thanks Dave. I have actually done more Hairy Stick work than usual on this one...even if it mostly working with Oils  8)

Absolutely gorgeous Rick! I do love the colors, BUT the change between your pics on the 29th compared to those from the 31st . . . WOW!  What did you do?  What method did you employ to get that variegated/modulated colo/finish?

WD

Thanks Warren. I have used raw sienna, and a lot of Gold Ochre oils just worked into the acrylic original paint.

Really excellent job on laying the paint Rick , same with the weathering as well .


Alexis

Thanks Alexis! I am still working on blending in the oils:

I am catching up Rick and have to write that the paintwork is very impressive indeed.

Just a small point: I am with Dave - all those words about pressure and parts leaves me very confused. Clearly I am a relic of the past - spray guns were never part of my toolbox. Hairy sticks rule here!!!

I really like that colour! I'm still not really happy with the yellowish tones on my Caudron. This looks closer to what I want.

Fredrik, You are dealing with a slightly different color. This one is a "Yellow" period scheme vs a CDL scheme. I think your colors are perfect! So here is the progress. Rigging started on the SPAD VII and continuing to work oils into the XIII finish!

It's great to see you approching the finish line with this pair Rick. I really like the colour schemes and the weathering. Things must be getting cramped  in your display cabinets!

Thumbs up and hats off!

At this rate you will be finished both before I even complete the DH-2

Fantastic work on both builds Rick , your skills have really improved  :)
