In this latest episode, we start to get the colour on the board. Watch as everything perfectly until the end where it goes terribly wrong, leaving me with one week to get it fix, finished and sealed!

Did you try it on your test board first?

The biggest tip I was given when I started out by a master modeller was that you need to learn when to stop. You demonstrated this well here.

It could be your airbrush but it could be your compressor. It has an air tank that it must keep air in at the given pressure. If it can’t maintain this it begins to huff and puff. When it does this the end result it similar to what you ended up with. To test for this reduce your strokes to under 3 seconds and allow at least a second before your use the air again. The size of your airbrush needle also impacts on this such as a 0.5mm needle will empty the air tank faster than a 0.35mm needle.

Regardless of your issues the project is looking great. 🙂
