    REPAINT ALERT!!

    Yeah I decided to follow Spideys tip of painting the green then the red then the black/green, as masking for those under cheeks would be a pain in the backside, still never mind, its a learning curve

    good call, may want to do the back tan color or green also, or however you plan to do the back....cause it's the same concept, red is just easier to mask and paint that way....Second to LAST...then the black under cheeks.

    another tip: use automotive pin stripping to mask and get your curves, as the pin stripping "bends"..

    I know what you mean Joe... frustrating when things don't happen the way you plan? I'm still waiting on my yellows for the Armour...

    I tell you what guys the fates are definitely against me on this one, not only did some of my paints get 'lost' in the mail, my airbrush regulator broke!! Anyone help a fellow member out with Caboose (not caboose red!) And Gav if your reading this the concrete did arrive............but they sent 1 bottle when I specifically asked for 2, one each!! Sorry mate

    Well something incredible happened today, I got my new airbrush regulator and IT WORKED!!! but thats not all, its also NOT RAINING here today which means..........I've actually got some paint on my FPH!!! Yep the Panzer Olive Green is down, and later this evening I will be adding (courtesy of Eric - Superjedi - thanks man I owe you) the Caboose to the mandible area, pics coming soon, thanks to everyone following my incredibly slow progress, there have been a few mountains to overcome but were getting there!!!

    And it was all going so well...............Airbrush blockage, I have no idea whats happened but whilst applying the caboose to the mandibles the pressure just died, I'm using caned air which may explain it, although when i disconnect the paint bottle it sprays fine I'd gotten about half way round when the paint just started gradually getting fainter and fainter, Arrrgghhh!! Will I never make decent progress on this???

    Bud, this is gonna be one of those projects?
    Have you checked the tube inside the bottle or the nozzle? I sometimes get a similar problem but have a handy pin to one side and run it down the nozzle?

    I'm seriously beginning to think theres a voodoo priest around here somewhere casting bad mojo (not you Gav) on me and my FPH, in fact I swear I saw someone earlier sticking pins into a Boba Fett action figure, perhaps it has something to do with it??

    Thin your paint a little bit. It's too thick (unclog the nozzle too)

    Looking great BTW !!!

    I'm using Floquil caboose and it suggested 75% paint to 25% thinner which is what I used, I guess a little more couldn't hurt, I was so excited to get going though I may have messed up a little on the measurements
