Prime time! I have all the parts primed and they're drying as I type this. I have some cleanup to do before I paint, but it's not much. I did all the priming in 1 setting and it took 2 hours, 5 airbrush refills and I had to clean the tip of my airbrush several times. Primer is thicker than paint, and it clumps in the nozzle causing it to gunk up and spatter. To counter this, I clean the nozzle with a cotton swab soaked in thinner every time I refill the cup. Because I shot so much this session, I had to take the nozzle off and clean the top of the needle about half way through. You can also thin the primer to avoid it clogging, but I like how Alclad performs straight out of the bottle, so I don't thin.
Ok, onto some pics!
That's all for now. GBWC is in a couple weeks (June 10 at A-Kon here in Dallas/Fort Worth). I can't wait to see how my kit turns out, and also see what everyone else has been working on.
Special shout out to my dog Sophie, who stared and whined at me for 2 hours today while I painted. She got a good play session when I was done :)
Until next time, keep building!
