I agree with you Ray. Sometimes there is barely enough room to allow you to crouch down to see what is under the vendors' tables as well as what is on them. I guess that shows are trying to maximize the number of vendor tables sold, as that is one of the ways that shows make money.

Are XMODS and XS wheels the same thing? I thought they were different. Just wondering...

Happy New Year Lawrence. I just went to Amazon.ca and used the search "airbrush gravity feed". Here is the link:

 

http://www.amazon.ca...gravity,aps,465

 

Lots of results. You indicated you were on a budget. Temptation would be to go with the lowest price option. Although cheaper airbrushes might outwardly look the same, machining and tolerances are quite different, yielding drastically different performance, results and longevity. I would forgo the purchase of a few kits and invest in a good brush (Badger, Paasche, Iwata). Some may boast about what a cheap deal they scored, but ultimately you get what you pay for. Quality is not cheap, nor should it be. Surprisingly I did see a link on eBay that clearly shows that Tamiya has teamed up with Sparmax for a gravity feed gun. Tamiya is a name linked to quality. Also, Sparmax I believe is the company that private brands Iwata compressors. I know, more food for thought to add to your decision making, LOL. Good luck with your search. Personally I started way back with a Tamiya SprayWork System (trigger style). I now have Iwata, Paasche, and Sparmax airbrushes.

 

P.S. I still have my good old Tamiya SprayWork System. Up until recently, I still used it in my classroom when I did my year-end model building sessions with my Grade 5 classes.

Wayne, I have used the stuff, but not for modelling. It doe create an extremely strong bond. One warning. It tends to react almost like an expanding foam. It does not necessarily stay only on the location where it was originally applied.

Loved the fact that Sebastian and Red Bull did not win another championship. As the season went on, it became obvious that MB powered cars were the ones to beat. I was really hoping for Nico to come through. Lewis really did deserve it though, and had a superb season. Shout out to Williams drivers Felipe and Valtteri, for an outstanding season as well.
