Thanks for telling me that you could mix Aqua Color Paints. After watching a few videos on YouTube, they said that you couldn't blend aqua colors so now I have learnt. Can you recommend me of some good commercial aircraft kits which I can do after my Air Dolomiti Embraer? Either way thank you very much, and in m next model, I shall pay attention to the smaller details which can be improved.

Hello betasingh,

it´s quiet easy to mix aqua color paints and you get very good results. For your next Modell take a little more time and patient for. When I started building models I used the brush as well. Many modells later I asked my self how can I improve the paint? I got an answer for that. 

To Do List:
  • cleaning ( important especially for gloss paint)
  • first layer should be a primer (especially for aqua color paint)
  • the main color should be applied about many Steps by using a water thined mixture (1 part Water/ 3-4 parts aqua color)
  • apply a minimum of 3 layers. Apply next Layer after the pre applied layer tried out.
  • carefully rework it with 1200er sandpaper
  • apply a layer of aqua color no. 01 (maybe a little thined by water too) 
For your next model, you prefer the scale 1:144?

I think an A320 was a good choice.
