|Neo on the left; Revolution on the right|
After a break to do some chores, I used the Revolution to do some priming. Then had a nap. After my nap, I used the Neo to put basecoats onto the models. I need to get a bit more practice with the new compressor and brushes to get this job right.
I also need to make sure that my paints are thoroughly mixed - I suffered an annoying blockage at one point, which resulted in an almighty splat of paint coming out at high pressure when I was actually after a fine spray when attempting to highlight one of the models. That necessitated a full strip-down of the brush and about half an hour of cleaning.
I forgot to take pics after priming, but here's a pic of them with base coats:
I'm not sure if any of these will actually get painted before the end of the Challenge. They are at least at a stage where I can finish them fairly quickly if I do have time at the end. In case you are wondering, the orange spaceships are the Crusty fleet from GZG and the blue vehicles are from Copplestone Castings - some reinforcements for Salutesville's finest.
