Thank you Becky, Marcell, DiscoveryOne (?) and Ed, I have no words ...

You're heaping so much praise on me, that on the one hand it's nearly embarrassing me, but on the other hand, it makes me proud and happy and spurs me on continuing to do my best.

I can't speak for everyone, but THAT'S the way I usually feel when I see you've posted an update. Literally speechless.

Thanks Becky for your kind words,
if that's really the case, that would be great, but I'm even more pleased about every one of your comments.

Hello everybody,

after I've printed out my new Reference photo with the selected brighter ET color shadings,



now I'm going to order the matching Vallejo Model Air Colors together with the associated Airbrush Thinner.


Source: modellbau-universe.de

Actually, I had so far assumed that the Model Air Colors in the practical dropper bottles are already sprayable.

That this is not the case, I have learned now in this interesting video by Jens Kaup, in which he gives important tips for working with Vallejo colors that should be considered.

Important tip for working with Vallejo colors

The video is unfortunately only in German, but it is very vivid and therefore hopefully understandable.

In that he says, that as practical as the dropper bottles from Vallejo are, the poor color mixing is a problem, wherfore relief is provided. The consistency of the Model Air colors is too thick for fine airbrushing. Here it helps to fill up each new color vial simply with Vallejo Thinner,



and to insert a Stainless steel hex nut M5 as shaking aid for better mixing.



Of course, Stainless steel balls (0.25 inch) fulfill the same purpose.

Conclusion:
Two simple measures with great effect!

Hello everybody,
my ordered Vallejo colors (7x Model Air, 2x Model Color, 1x Thinner) have arrived meanwhile, and I did buy a handful of Stainless steel nuts M5 too,



so I could actually start with some mixing tests.
