初めてのスプレーガン : Testing the spray gun

by David on 2010-07-06 (Tue) 12:19PM

 So over the last few months I've been slowly amassing quite a collection of Eldar tanks and skimmers, and I thought it was about time to paint them. I didn't really want to spend hours doing each one in base colors then washes, so I splashed out on a Citadel Spray Gun (and can of propellant). I've never used one before, so I was a little wary, but thankfully they have a quite useful video guide on YouTube.

最近、エルダーのタンクを結構集まったので、同時に早くペイントしようと思っていました。北九州市のStage1店ではGW製のスプレーガン2台ありました。スプレーガン1つとガス管1つ買ったが、初めて使った時に緊張していた。YouTubeでのビデオガイドを見て、準備はできました。

 

 

1. Undercoat アンダーコート

It made sense to undercoat the models first, to save having to spray them twice. I was planning on painting the hulls in dheneb stone, so I undercoated them with a single spray of matt white. This covered them quickly and cheaply, and the matt finish gives the subsequent color something to stick to.

クリーム色の「デネブストーン」でスプレーするつもりだったので、まずはつや消しの白でアンダーコートをしました。グッデイで買ったペイントだったので、安かった。

 

2. Spraygun assembly スプレーガンの準備

I poured a whole pot of the foundation paint Dheneb Stone into the glass jar, which neatly brought it up to the second line (on the left). On top of that I poured in some water to bring the level up to the corresponding second line on the right. I then screwed the top on and shook the jar.

「デネブストーン」1個をビンに入れた。左側の一番上の線のちょうどいいところになった。その上に水を右側の一番上の線まで入れました。そしてミックスしましたが。。。 

Oh crap! There was a tiny hole in the lid that I hadn't seen (see pic). I guess this is necessary to allow air to flow through the system during spraying, but I hadn't seen it. So a few drops escaped over my fingers. Arse. Tried again, covering the hole. No problems this time. Then I connected up the pipes and propellants as directed.

ビンのふたに小さい穴があって、ちょっとミスしました。チッシューで拭きました。そして、スプレーガンのガス管などを接続して、準備はOKでした。

 

3. Spraying スプレー

With that one pot of foundation paint, I managed to undercoat the hulls of 4 tanks, 12 jetbikes, 1 larger vyper jetbike, and a few odds and ends. Beautiful even spray, with a very fine focus = not much wastage. Even with the added water, the sprayed paint dried within about 10 minutes (although it is currently during rainy season now).

「デネブストーン」1個の量で4台のタンク(下半のみ)と13台のジェットバイクをきれいに塗れましたので、大成功だ!10分ほどでスプレーしたペイントが乾いた。結構細かくスプレーできたのでほとんどのペイントをモデルに当たったんです。

 

4. Wash spraying ウォッシュ

My eldar forces are done in white and beige, and the beige is done in a fairly time consuming process of dheneb stone + gryphonne sepia wash + dheneb stone highlight. So I tried washing the tanks with the spray gun to speed things up. This can apparently be poured straight into the jar and used neat - no need to dilute with water.

ウォッシュでスプレーをする場合には、そのままウォッシュを入れるだけで使えます。水を使わなくてもOKみたいです。 

The washes seem to be used faster in the spray gun, so I wasn't able to spray the whole lot this time. Stupid me - I didn't have a spare pot! Nevertheless I got the majority done, all except the jetbikes on their upper sides. It looked a little odd (and in fact they advise against spraying tanks with washes) when wet, but dried to a consistent shade. A quick drybrush with dheneb stone again, and the hulls will be finished. Great - super fast!

GWのホームページでは「ウォッシュでタンクをスプレーのはおすすめしない」と書いていますが、思ったより上手にできました。最後にまた「デネブストーン」でドライブラッシュをすると完成です。お勧めのツールですね。
