Paint help needed

This could apply to most ships that have camouflage paint.

What is the best way to paint the superstructure?

 

Prefer using airbrush if possible with a clear demarcation line between colors. Thanks

Art,

 

The way I go about it is to paint the parts in subassemblies, carefully masking off the patterns and fitting them together to ensure alignment.

Then one the vertical surfaces are done, I will mask the entire thing and paint the exposed decks on each part.

 

I have an index to the NHC camo pages on my site. I did this a few years ago when a contact there told me they had started putting them online and there was no index of just the camo. I still don't think they've gotten the index page done, but I do think I have all the pages listed on my page.

The two below are the design sheets for the 32/22d scheme, just in case you haven't seen the official documents (never rely on secondary material when the primary is available!)
