I was curious, how much of the model do you paint by brush, and how much is sprayed?

Whats parts to you brush, and what parts do you spray?

spray 95% of it, use brush to pic out details and add washes

sounds strange, but it depends what season it is! I find i can get a pretty good finish on most parts of a model with a brush, but obviosly i spray bodyshells. My airbrush and compressor are in the loft, where i built a booth with a big extracter fan, and a big desk to work on- so i spray as much as i can, probly around 80% of the model depends what it is. But it gets really hot up there in the summer so i bring my modelling stuff downstairs and work on the table in the back room, with the back door open if its hot. But i cant really bring the airbrush down . . . so i just use spray cans in the back garden, using a big cardboard box as a spray booth.
Stop laughing! its nice in the garden with the birds and stuff :cool:

I find that most of the model can be brush painted with no problems, even the large surfaces. To brush large areas like the chassis, I use enamel instead of the usual acrylic because it evens out better. But the body definately needs to be spray painted. So for me about 99% brush painting and 1% spray painting.
