Well, I'm down to the painting stage of my first model in 20 years but I seem
to be having a minor problem with my airbrushing technique that I hope the
collective here can help me with.
I'm using Humbrol Super enamel thinned to between 2 parts paint to 1 part
thinner and 50/50. The pressure on the compressor is between 15 to 20 psi.
To start with I gave the model an overall coat of white primer (thinned
enamel) which didn't seem to be a problem. However, the top coat (dark
earth) seems to have dried with streaks in it like I have brush painted. The
paint seems to have gone on evenly enough, no spiders, no runs, no grittyness
etc., just some barely perceptible streaking in daylight.
What am I doing wrong, your thoughts and comments would be greatly
