    Here are a few good things I have got. Hollow punches, diamond rotary grinding bits for the Dremel and diamond cut off wheels. They have allot of things that are useful and work for building models. I use there 3 gallon pancake compressor and love it.

    I have the Talon. For doing  a body I would use the large tip(.66mm) Tip size also affects the sheen on a semigloss paint. If you want it a little flatter use a smaller tip. Also take into consideration the size of the part being painted. Practice ,practice and practice some more.

    None of the hobby shops in my area can get it anymore. I have been using Plastruct Bondene and works about the same. I pour it in an old Tamiya Extra Thin Cement because of the great small brush. Tamiya's glue is good but takes a little longer to dry which is a good thing sometimes.

    I have also had issues with the newer Passche hoses. I have Iwata and Paasche airbrushes so  I was using adapters on the Iwatas. I have now switched to Iwata hose adapters on my Paasche airbrushes and got a hose(Iwata type) from Harbor Freight.  This fixed all the air leak problems I had. The Paasche hose does not let enough threads exposed to tighten well. Also you should install a cutout valve on the out put of your compressor so you can change things out without losing air.

    I am working on this one now. I got new decals made by Shunko for it. They are making allot of really nice decals for older Tamiya kits. This is the 1/20 scale kit. I built a full roll cage and will do some detailing. I lowered the rear suspension. If you look at any type of 935 the top of the rim should be right at the top of the wheel opening with no sidewall exposed at this point.

    Yes I love mine. The three tip sizes will cover all your needs. I think it is one of the best values out there. The big cup is really nice. Parts are sturdy and easy to find. It is $99 on amazon right now.

    It is most likely moisture in the air supply to the airbrush. Do you have proper water trap installed? If it is at the compressor  output you may need on closer to the airbrush, such as the Paasche inline trap.
