In Topic: I love my air brush

29 April 2012 - 06:55 PM

I usually clean my airbrush with lacquer thinnerr , but beware it will dry out your O-rings . You can prevent this by running regular paint thinner or mineral spirits thru your brush before puting it away . One tip with using an airbrush , don't let paint dry in it . If it's gonna sit for a while dump out the paint . run some thinner throu haveh it and your ready to go . Take care and have fun ,

In Topic: Revells new funny car kits

Exactly; I don't know why people spend 25 bucks on another kit when you can get free decals from Revell. Maybe for extra parts, no?

Fifteen bucks at Michaels is nothing compared to waiting six to eight weeks for a set of decals , heck I'll bet there's a company out there that makes decals for this very same model .

In Topic: What are the most accurate kits?

With everyone saying accurate this and accurate that I can't believe no one has mentioned Accurate Miniatures kits . Both of thier kits remain amoung my favorites of all time . I know they don't exactly fall together but build into beautiful kits , and are on my automatic buy list when I see them for a fair price . I would love to see what this company would have produced if they were still around ! A series of Chapparals and Lola's maybe ? ....I can dream can,t I .

Revell's "49" Mercury also had a set if I remember correctly .

In Topic: Testers Laquer Diamond Dust

Tamiya clear lacquers ie red , blue , yellow , look absoutley incredable when applied over Testors silver diamond dust . If you have access to some you should definately check it out . Warm the can and be careful of the fumes ...twice as bad as Tamiya's , smell any ways .
Take care , and see you around the clubhouse ,
