Yeah, just spotted your reply!
Cheers for that, it's been bugging me for a few days now and I would never have considered looking at Prime. He's sat on the bottom shelf of a different unit (out the way!) and I've no idea how his smoke stack got where it was!
Used enamel paints slightly thinned with an airbrush like this one:
Really good bit of kit, applies the paint really evenly.
The red/white lines are on top of the blue and I just used masking tape to mark 'em out before spraying. Then just touched up any slight smudges outside the line. Then touched up the touch ups!! (not got the steadiest of hands!)
The only problem is that the brushed on paint is quite a bit thicker than the airbrushed areas, so it looks a bit glossier. Hopefully that will not show when I eventually coat it all with a gloss sealer.
To be honest, my hand painting skills are not good. The airbrush is the difference maker, gives a great application of paint. It looked a lot better before I did any touching up! (Which shows in the pictures of the wing, the back/side of the legs and his back)
