Topics I've Started

Yamaha YZF-R1

Yesterday, 05:05 PM

I got it for a good deal at a show and started working on it. I was surprised at how much I liked doing it vs 1/24 and 1/25 cars, I think the larger pieces had something to do with it, or it was just a change of pace for me


Didn't really know how to 'mod' too much on a bike as Im not all to familiar with them. I see soooooo much room for improvement, but I guess compared to the amount of completed cars vs ones started over my 'career' in models, starting a bike and getting it finished was kind of big for me








Aerosol Clears and what they work over

22 August 2014 - 09:31 AM

Im trying to switch from the small cans of Tamiya clear (semi gloss is what I have now) to a larger can (say Krylon for example, since its what I already purchased)


I bought a can of Krylon ColorMaster  CoverMax Gloss Clear. I sprayed a spoon purple with tamiya from a rattle can. Waited a few hours and went to spray the krylon over it and it seemed to wash away/move the paint and not 'coat' it


I tried doing some research on the clear that I have here, but I couldnt come up with an answer as to whether or not it was a good product. Ive seen claims that krylon is no longer what it used to be, but am looking for a good can of 'department store' clear that works over tamiya aerosols and acrylics, as well as some of testors one coat lacquers, and even model master enamels for that matter


Any help to a direct product would be great. I know people say 2 part clears are great, but Id rather not deal with the fumes and mess of it all

Thank you in advance

Gravity fed single action

Im trying to figure out which is a good one to use. Ive got a paasche H set that I use for 'mass' sprays as well as my bodys. But Im wanting something that I can just put a little bit of paint into and do some finer things, not to mention having a second gun is never a bad thing


I cant seem to find many at what seems a reasonable price, let alone know how big the mm size tip is prior to using it.


Any input is appreciated

For the love of _____. Help me figure out airbushing

30 January 2014 - 02:22 PM

I have been on here lately looking up past threads on airbrushing. everybody has their own method that they use and I have been trying a couple of them.

Tonight I decided to paint some interior parts of my Jeep with Model Master enamel in gloss black.I thinned it down with Testors enamel thinner and brush cleaner to a ratio that seem to be about 2% milk. At first I could get anything to come out with my regulator set to 23-25psi. I thinned it down more and then it was just too thin. I finally cleaned out that mess and tried again and mixed some to a ration of no clue, and sprayed that back over it. Coverage seems fine now

I decanted some testors lacquer and had no problem at all working with that.

I'm looking for what people's rations are and with what paint. I have a Paasche H set and a 3 gallon compressor with reg.

I've recently been switching to Tamiya acrylics and have yet to use those yet as I've seen people use water and lacquer thinner. Please post here or message me to help lead in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.
