After assembling the 100+ part UM Models BA-10 I had to take a nap. That was a lot of work!
When I awoke I primed it black and then hit it with the airbrush. The first color was a 1:1 mix of Tamiya XF4 and XF58. Then I sprayed the center of the panels with a 2:1 mix of XF4 and XF51 (of course both paint mixtures were then thinned 1:1 with Tamiya thinner to make them spray properly).
This combination worked very well. The dark was just dark enough and the light looks good on the small model. I couldn't be more pleased!
Next up is the pin washing and weathering.
