    Createx for an airbrush newbie?
    Okay, this Fathers Day was good to me. A compressor and some of the Createx Wicked Colors.
    Any advice for the airbrush newbie on these? Thinning? Pressure? I'm using a Badger double action.
    Thanks in advance.

    Or use Mikes technique with a little dirt colored spray paint.

    I gotta disagree here. This stuff does evaporate. So buying a better Tupperware type container at the local supermarket, is a better bet as they seal tighter.

    What a groovy little model. I like it. I think maybe I've found my next Cannonball racer.

    Agreed. One of the holes will house the switch for the light.

    I hear ya. Right now, slump or no my model time has taken a serious hit lately because we've moved to a place where I actually want to go out and do things outdoors. Plus my wife works third shift and sleeps during the day. My work bench is in the bedroom.

    Shadow box garage diorama
    I've been wanting to do a shadowbox garage scene dio for a while. I finally found a box. Good size. Plenty of room for two models. Hobby Lobby item, its got a nice patina. In scale, the interior dimensions are 31.2 feet long and 14.5 feet deep and high. 
    The plan is to do a lighted garage scene with a crawl space above for storage. Rather than do the bare framed garage, I've decided to do the garage that's been plywood sheathed. One window, double barn doors, concrete floor, one door. I'll be using washes to get an aged patina on the wood, with color added to break up the "man that's a lot of wood". The walls are basswood over foam core. The foam core will give me some depth for the windows and doors as well as a support for the ceiling which will be framed out to look realistic. I cut out templates from poster board for each wall and then cut the foam core and added the basswood over that.
    I'm gonna need to get some resin garage pieces or a Fujimi garage set. Here's where I'm at so far.

    Fugimi garage kit
    I'm looking for some parts from the Fujimi garage kit
    I DON'T need the garage and the lift. I might be able to pass on the engine hoist.
    I DO need. Everything else. Shoot me a PM if you can help. If you have resin garage stuff. I'd be happy to have a look at it.
