So I'm having my first really tiresome problem while getting to grips with airbrushing - the paint keeps missing the leading edges of the wings! If I take the airbrush in too close the paint will pool and start to run and it obviously looks awful.
What is the best way to hold the model to ensure paint goes onto the leading edges as evenly as possible?
The top and bottom of this model is one colour, so it never occurred to me!
Edited to add - not sure if that would help solve the issue - the paint is not landing on the leading edge of the wing at all. It's not a problem where colour is going where it shouldn't.

I think it's just technique and maybe the mix of paint.
I'm going to stop painting the Zero now and get on with finishing the build, putting a gloss coat on and get the decals down, then a matt coat - and then onto the next model...
It's all a learning experience and it's good have a few kits to practice your airbrushing skills on. We've all been there with runs, heavy application of paint etc.
Practice, practice, practice!
