    Hey all,

    Figured I would share my progress on my Man of War AOSW jetpack paintup! I am using Terminal Fettler's paintup as a guide + his handy dandy Humbrol colour list.

    Here goes:

    The rocket lower has been my favorite piece to paint so far - it is pretty much done other than dullcote.

    The rocket top I am pretty happy with as well. This part hasn't been weathered at all yet, so it may look a little odd. I like the finish of the red 1321 that TF recommended, but I hated how it treated my airbrush... I couldn't get it cleaned out - so be wary of that.

    Painting the blue 109 on the jetpack body wasn't too bad, minus the several hours of masking and the hour of unmasking... I took the pics in daylight and the blue is completely unweathered, so it is very bright as of now.
    Another note: I needed 2 tins of the Humbrol Blue 109 to get it coated. The blue is pretty thin right out of the tin (especially compared to other Humbrol colors), so it didn't last me very long - your results may vary.

    I have also not added white onto the silver yet, or made the fine scratches into the blue in many places. What a task it is! Let me know what you think!

    Looking really nice there Cbrant! Off to a great start on this bad boy. Glad I just have to get thru an ESB JP paint up cause these intimidate me even more.are you using masking fluid or topical?

    Thanks for the compliment Syllander!

    All of what it painted right now is layered. For the white that comes through the silver, I will paint topically. There may be some other small spots that I do topical, but for the most part I will layer this.

    Gotcha! It looked like it but hard to tell in pics...
    Just a thought-something I see in my head( which can be very dangerous place lol). Would it be easier to leave the masking fluid and localized masking tape and weather each area seperately THEN remove the masking fluid? I'm no painter so I don't know much about it. Just the thought I was planning on pursuing with painting.

    I am pretty sure that's how Terminal Fettler did his, and it's probably the smart way to do it, but I want to just weather the whole thing at once.

    Edit: Just went and looked at his thread at the part where he did the blue. He definitely removed the masking fluid then weather with gray because you can see it dirtying up parts of the silver base. I suppose it makes sense that the silver wouldn't all be clean and fresh scratches.

    That's right cbrant. You can do some minor overall misting while the fluid is still down, but then it's good to go over again after the masking is removed. I think I did all the weathering at the end simply because it was one less colour to change in my airbrush. Dirtying up the silver is a good thing Everything is looking great so far! I definitely think I used two tins of 109. I had to do at least 2 coats. The grey weathering definitely helps with killing the vibrancy and filling in any lighter patches of blue.

    Admittedly, this is my main reason. I don't want to dirty up the airbrush more than I have to because I hate cleaning it.

    The jetpack was my first experience with an airbrush...and I had no idea how to clean it. It didn't come with instructions (IWATA knock off). I think I sent it to my hobby shop twice for a cleaning before the guy showed me how to do it properly. Oh the shame.

    I painted the red on last night. After staring at the AOSW reference images, I decided that the silver under the blue is the only layered portion of the jetpack, and that the white on every other color is topical. Some of it looks really obvious, but other parts look like they could be layered. I will likely finish the rest of the JP with topical application. I would like to know if anyone contests that?

    On another note, the red 73 is the best Humbrol colour I have used so far - was really easy to spray.

    Don't forget to trim off the top of the piano keys. Looks much better that way!

    Thanks man! This is about the slowest progressing thing I've painted so far.
