Masking and painting Rob Caso quack916@aol.com >>


I did a lot of masking and painting on my


Hansa-Brandenburg W.12 that I recently completed. People at the AMA Expo East, held February 23-25 in Secaucus, New Jersey, asked me how I did some of it. Much has been written on the subject elsewhere, so I will focus on some


of the more idiosyncratic procedures that I follow and the equipment that I use. I primarily use Badger 200 single-action and Badger Renegade Velocity R1V dual-action airbrushes from the Badger Air-Brush Co. (badgerairbrush.com) for detail painting. To touch up larger areas, I like the Anest Iwata LPH80 Miniature center post spray gun (anestiwata.com) or, believe it or not, spray cans. Most of my models are electric powered, so as long as the paint holds up against water, I use spray


cans for the base coat. For spraying with an airbrush or touch-up gun, you must use a compressor that has a tank and a good regulator. Even expensive compressors usually come fi tted with an imprecise regulator. It is critical to properly control the pressure, sometimes down to 4 or 5 pounds. Spend the money on a Bedford Precision Parts Corp. (bedfordprecision. com) pressure regulator. A compressor without a tank will generate pulses of air, which is exactly what you


don’t need. The tank acts as a buffer against this and provides the regulator with a constant supply of air that is then further dialed up or down.


I mentioned paint. I


prefer Model Master enamel (testors.com), Klass Kote epoxy (klasskote.com), or the kind in a spray can. Although I am not afraid to experiment for the money shot, I only use what I have experience with. Latex and water-based paints are too fi nicky for me and have generated inconsistent results


My airbrush setup shows the regulator and compressor, which has a small tank. 40 PARK PILOT [Summer 2018]
