Hi guys! This is the first kit that I have accomplished using my airbrush. Still a noob work and needs a lot more improvement.
This is also the first time that I used water-slide decals.
Panel Line Accent Color (Black)
Bosny Spray Paint:
What I did:
First I snap-fit build the kit and decide the color scheme. After I have decided and planned my color scheme, I took everything apart, sanded and cleaned the nib marks then primed it using Bosny gray primer. Once everything has been primed and dried I started airbrushing everything using my planned color theme, I hand-painted some of the details. After that I sprayed Bosny Clear Gloss over everything to prepare for panel lining using enamel wash. After using the Panel Line Accent Color, I cleaned the excess using enamel thinner then applied some water–slide decals that I have acquired in a recent haul. Lastly I sprayed matte coat to seal everything.
Enjoy the photos:
Using my newly bought Tamiya Spray-work kit was easy and convenient, worth an investment rather than using all those spray cans.

Congratulations! Nice work!
Grats on your first airbrushed kit! Nice job with painting some of the internal components on the legs….for 1/144 it must be very tough!
Thanks! yeah, good for practice. 🙂
Looks great! A big leap from those spray cans 🙂
Yeah, took a while to get used to the airbrush. 🙂 need more practice. 😀
Looks really good! Can’t wait to own an airbrush one day… XD
You should buy! 😀
nice colors. much better than the original plastic
Dang, that’s some nice matte finish.
I recently got into this hobby and started out just using paintbrush. I’m considering getting the same airbrush kit that you used based on your review alone (which helped alot by the way). But I noticed that there’s no activity for quite some time in this blog.
The only disadvantage that I have experienced with the said airbrush kit is the compressor itself, you can’t use it for extended periods of time as it will overheat. Yeah it’s because I’ve been busy writing articles for another company and also been busy with life. But I will still have updates and I still have a backlog. 🙂
It’s great to know this site’s still active. I will be checking in every now and then since there’s a ton of useful materials to read here. Appreciate what you do. Hopefull, once I get that much awaited bonus, I’ll be buying that kit too. But thanks again!
Yes, it will continue to be active. You’re very welcome! 🙂
