Indeed lol

Locally finding all the furniture for it's palatialness might be a bit of a bugger though, unless your wanting to end up sitting on cotton bob reels, you'd better ask the builder to leave some Balsa round the back & get building your own, I've heard it's pretty light at scale lol


My only concern is where the privy is.. will I have to dig my own through the base  ;D

The privy is still to be built, along with the stables, smithy and wharf

That is a wonderful paint job. Impressive work staying in-between the lines on the daub.

Lovin it Mc YB  :-*

Colour palette is spot on, as is the muting & captures a darker ambience.

Refreshing & good to see silvered come charcoalish timber rather black or brown, V nice.

As mentioned by Codsticker & syrinx0 on the daub, deftly done by the way  8)

The clay roofing tiles are lovely too with the colour variations amongst them, adds fidelity of 'realism'.

What AB are you using & do you take your crown off to work tight with the needle?

Look forward to seeing more as it evolves man :)

Cheers.

Cheers, airbrush is my trusty badger 200.
Also have an Iwata HP-C, but tend to fall back on the Badger.
Dont take the crown off, never got that to work for me!
Use a pressure regulator on the compressor and tweak that and the needle until I get what i'm looking for.
Still getting used to spraying acrylics, still prefer spraying enamels

Nice man, is that the old version or newer, bottom or gravity feed, whats the cone & needle size? I have an old bottom feed Badger, like reeeally old, I need to dig it out as will be good for large surface areas, but it's nothing like your 200. The various incarnations of the 200 line looks like a really excellent sturdy workhorse, plus you have shown it can offer (in the right hands) finesse too. Hense all the questions, as your paintwork has now made me quite tempted by the 200 :)

I used to work a couple of different Aztecs (the 3000s & A4709) which were pretty cool, but the inter change nozzles clogging & lack of being able to clean them properly (even with hard solvent) was a pain. If you dismanteld the nozzles to clean they were never quite were the same after, no matter how meticulous in reasembly. So I shifted over to an Iwata myself now. It's not the uber range, but the Eclipse HP-CS. It's very nice, good weight, very pretty too, & yet would still like something with an even tighter line work, but that takes £££. I suppose taking the crown off has helped a bit for me in that regard. I'm 3xV careful not to dink the needle (famous last words) & I don't leave it off for all painting just when I need to get very fine.

Looking at your 200 I'm not sure if it will have the same effect due to it's build, so poss that's why the non plus, but you could still get in there tighter with it off I suppose. Same here though, lots of pressure tweaking in conjunction. Although the Eclipse is double action, I reckon that's the facet I am most unhappy with as it is not as smooth or finessed as really should be, can get a bit frustrating. Maybe I need to look at a new comp instead, as sturdy & loyal as it is (been with me a long time so I feel guilty talking behind it's back lol), it's volume is not very big so pressure could be affecting the dbl action. But hey, one can seek perfection for eternity I suppose. Better to learn & love the quirks of what one has than has not.

When you say your tweaking your needle, are you untightening the chuck on its's tail & pulling it back for flow?

Spraying enamels is hardcore man :) (not as much as double pack but still hardcore 8)) Spraying enamels is something I have never done yet. Any tips, recipes or best clean up?

If yer new to spraying acrylics, your doing a seriously grand job man :o.

What are the main differences you are finding between spraying enamels & acrylics & why do you still prefer enamels over acrylics? Are you missing the fume fix lol



Looks like you have spraying acrylics down pat to me.   lol[size]
Very much Agreed :)
