WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-22S Sturmvogel II Pt.8

I’ve decided on the color scheme! Nope, not going with splinter camo this time… 😀

For the darker shade of gray, I’m using Life Color Light Gray (FS 36251).

The camo was done freehand.

This is actually my first time I’m airbrushing Life Color and I have to say that while it hand brushes very well, I find ease of use for airbrushing to be in between Vallejo and Model Master Acryl.

I didn’t have to be as precise when thinning it than Vallejo. But even at 15psi, it dries a lot faster on the airbrush tip than Vallejo so I ended up having to do a lot of cleaning of the tip with a wet cotton bud. Model Master Acryl is much easier to thin and doesn’t dry at the tip as much.

I’m considering making the camo demarcation sharper. First though, I’ll let everything dry first.
