Spray Vs Paint brush
I have around 60 WW2 models 1:72, and all have needed paint jobs. In my opinion, the "biggest" difference between a good model and a great model is its paint job (given the model is made well). Or another way of putting it, the only way to make your model look like a "real" aircraft but shrunk is the paint job.
I've always been a brush painter, and have found that it gives the (WW2) aircraft a more "real" look, it replicates the finish of the real thing far better than a spray.
I think most spray jobs look fake, very hard to acheive a sharp edge and the application is too precise and even. Now, i see magazines where the "professionals" seem to all favour the spray (it certainly cuts down time!) This usually only applies to WW2 aircraft, but i've seen some modern aircraft with spray jobs that look woeful!
Anybody agree or am i looking at things just plain wrong?
