I am fairly certain there was one in the AMT Meister Brau pulling tractor kit, molded in yellow. Same kit was molded in grey also I believe.

James,

 

Sorry to go off subject here but I really like the 1970s paint on the Sporty tank in your avatar. Looks to be mounted on a big twin. Got any more pics?

Again, thank you sir! I think I should have enough info to give this a try. I'm going to set up my airbrush and compressor to your specs. More'nlikely  I won't get to it til,at least, next weekend. I will let you know how things turn out.

 

I appreciate your input.

Thanks Chris, I was looking for and found your tutorial on spraying the clear coat. One question (for now :D ), what needle/nozzle/tip size do you spray with?

Chris,

 

I am glad you posted this. I have been a Dupli-Color guy since I started modeling. I have a couple non-model related things I want to spray and it always seems too humid when I do have the chance to paint (I have to spray outdoors). Being water-based this material should not be affected by humidity (plus I got an old hairdryer from my ex-girlfriend). I'm going to wait til you post the clear video before I attempt this.

 

Since I had to go to W/M today anyway I went down the craft aisle. I got the flat Apple Barrel acrylics you use for 50 cents a bottle. I spent a whopping $6.00 on 12 different colors. I already have Future and windshield washer fluid.

 

Thanks again and I can't wait for the clear video. I want to give this a try. It may well change the way I paint.
