Daily Chronicle: 2/8/2014 'Iwata Neo CN Airbrush'
This past week I have been contemplating on how I was going to paint my Soviet Tank.... should I airbrush, should I rattle can, or paint by brush? I was leaning towards the rattle can, but each can of paint is $13, and in the future I might not be able to find it anymore. So while I was at Hobby Lobby I came across the airbrushes and saw an Iwata Neo CN gravity airbrush for $70. I was just texting with my friend earlier in the day and he had mentioned that the Iwata were really good. I happen to have one of their 40% off coupons on me, so the price of the brush would only be $42. I figure why not and purchased the airbrush. I am not greatest airbrusher (at least when it came to my cars) but I figure this would be really good to lay the basecoat down on all my vehicles.
For now I'll stick with using it on the vehicles, but I may venture off and try to so some base colors on future infantry.
Here is a quick photo of the airbrushed T-34 (obviously more work is still needed on the tank, and the lighting is not ideal.
