Thank god I got a new air compressor. The replacement part to my last one was impossible to find. I'm not really in the position to purchase a brand new one so I went to Craig list. Found a used Iwata Smart Jet for 195. I offered 100. So now I have a new Smart Jet and it is delightfully quiet.
I ditched the camo pattern for now. Cobalt sent me some good reference pics but I just couldn't get it to look right. Not sure camo works with this scale.
Tried out some minitaire airbrush colors. Very nice. I still had to mix with Satin Varnish to make the finish right.
