I heve heard bad thinks about airbrushing Lifecolor

Btw It's something that has to do with Regia Aeronautica Italiana, that's why I posted

I Also like the Fiat G.55 Centauro in the box cover

Hi Nick

I've had no problems at all (although I'm much more used to working with enamels). I used LifeColor Luftwaffe acrylics almost exclusively on Eduard's Fw 190D and found them excellent.

All the best

I started using Lifecolour lately and I also find them very useable (much better that Xtracrylics ... for my working style)

I used them for brushpainting and airbrushing and had no problems. .. e.g.



for airbrushing. the sand and brown are Lifecolor.

and brushpainting ... base colour airbrushed; green is Xtracrylic and not fully dry yet



all the best

Steffen
