At this point I had the airbrush working just fine. After I assembled the building I decided to apply the first coat of green paint, something from Vallejo Model Air which should have shot through the brush just fine. I sort of finished the first coat and then sat down and had another frustrating session of cleaning the airbrush.
Here are the results of last night's work.
|Everything has been given a sealing coat of matte varnish. Its readily apparent that I forgot to add the trim at this point.|
|This is how I help get the trim straight. The flat edge against my metal blocks (you can see where I scrapped paint away to get to the foamed PVC)|
|The trim strip glued in place on the wall with the upper edge running against the metal blocks to keep it straight.|
|Time for a little assembly. You can see the lighter brown I used for the trim strips. I didn't feel the need to be to careful applying it either. Big rubber bands are quite helpful here.|
|Assembly completed, all the trim painted and the windows blocked off to protect the inside from over spray|
