Paint Table Saturday #22

The last week was rather quite on my workbench. After the busy painting challenge I took some time for my other hobbies. Especially ice hockey where the play-offs in the German league are running currently.

But this morning I sorted my painting stuff and tested my new airbrush compressor. It was delivered yesterday so I was keen to give it a first try. Fortunately I got re-supplies of grey paint as well so I gave the Pegasus Bridge another layer of dark grey. The compressor passed this first test with success. It's more quiet than my old one and it delivers the air more consistently.
This afternoon I was able to realize another session and painted the second part of the bridge as well. For that I needed two bottles of Vallejo Model Colour Dark Grey and so I'll running out of supplies again soon. Unbelievable how much paint this terrain piece consumes. And it's not because of the wood soaking up but because of the sheer size of the bridge and the attached buildings.

Next step will be the wooden parts of the bridge, the café and the bunker. But not today since Mrs Monty and me will leave for a dinner in intimate togetherness soon. Our daughter is with her grandparents today and we'll take the chance for a relaxed candlelight dinner at the Turkish restaurant we visited more often before the birth of our daughter.

Enjoy the weekend !

    1. Hi Michael,

      the compressor is a rather simple beginner model which seems to perform absolutely sufficient for me. My airbrush gun is really old one by Revell. Nothing too special but easy to handle and good enough for such large scale paintjob.

      I'll send you some detail via Google+ this evening if you like.

      Cheers
      Stefan
