Our painting habits.

Recommended Posts

So, I noticed there is a pattern to how I paint my tanks. I start with right front corner, then go right side, front left side, rear Hull and lastly lower front plate. 

Turret otoh is anti-clockwise from left side. Barrel is Painted last. 

I wonder why I do it this way? 

 

I am sure there are interesting variations to this among the members!

I start my painting with an area that is not right out in view (e.g., bottom, an area that will weathered or inside and not visible) so as to become one with the airbrush.  I get the distance right, see that the pressure and paint dilution are appropriate. I then shoot the good places.

I start anywhere. I'm just happy to be painting 'something'.  :thumbsup:

With you there Mike, but it's often a wing.

I find starting with painting the cockpit first makes life a bit easier.

:lol:

 

You have a good point!  I failed to mention the mostly painting from the inside to outside and per assembly sequence.  And.... Then I will remember to install all the cockpit parts.  Remembering that make everything easy.
