the more I paint the more I figure out, the adjustments on the gun now I'm getting more atomazation and a better paint job

Here are two of the paint jobs that I am the most proud of.

Done mostly with rattle can, as I'm still learning the air brush.

BF, Spit bombs work fine , just airbrush is lighter , finer application , better coverage with less paint ... practice on newspaper ... or more planes

I've got plenty more kits in the build que to practice on.

But yes, once the weather starts to get warmer, I will practice more with airbrush.

Yes, the mini has flown.

It likes a little speed and handles quite well, but needs a little more room than a basketball court.

Hi painters my grandfather has an air brush from a while back from when he did cars a lot but now wants to repaint our spitfire. We've repainted one plane p47 with rustolium paint and foam brush. But now he wants to try the rustolium thru the airbrush, my question, can we thin it out enough to put it thru the airbrush or is it a disaster that i should shoot down before its an issue? (No pun intended) or is it an experement thats worth a shot?(again no pun intended)

rusteolum has redone a lot of their mixes, there's no telling if it'll work or not, give it a try I would be interested to hear the results, I'm always looking for something new to try

It should work as long as you use the appropriate thinning agent that is compatible with the Rustoleum.
