Bandai Gundam Gusion Rebake HG 1/144

Recommended Posts

Built this mainly to get back into the swing of using my airbrush. Gundam kits are usually easy builds so I could spend more time working with the magic paint spitter.

Looks good to me!

 

Re: the air spitter - I see you're using Vallejo. If the a/b is clean, I would suggest thinning the paint at least 50%, and bring the psi to under 20.    I'm shooting Vallejo at about 12-15 psi and never get a clog (or spitting).   HTH

Yes, mostly Vallejo air and color. Sometimes the gunze acrylics. I think I run around 15psi, maybe a tad higher. Normally I don't get spitting unless I'm trying to get the last ... little  ... bit of paint. Self inflicted. :)

I sprayed the parts for each assembly step separately so it was kind of a repetitive drill working with the airbrush. (Think exercises with a musical instrument.)  And since most of the colors were mixes I could introduce a little variation as the build progressed.
