    i had a harbor frieght air brush. iwas surprised to get a few years use from it. i just got a badger cresendo 175 from michaels a few weeks ago. price was $150.00 the girl at the register had a 40% off coupon she gave to me and it knocked the price down to $85. i went away happy. seems to be working quite well, i have real good results with it. it is a dual action brush, came with 3 needles, 3 tips and 2 jars. no hose.

    my first idea would be a sanding drum. unless you have acess to a lathe, you could bore it
  12. pibull63 added a post in a topic HEADER COLLECTORS???   

    the way i make my headers is with aluminum welding wire. the collecters, i use a plastic drinking straw. its flexible enough so when you slide it over the headers, it stretches just a bit. i dont even glue it on. just leave it, because it is so tight. try it and let me know how you make out

    i gotta agree with davkin. i like the changes, but its your kit. if ya spend your time pleasing everyone else, you'll make yourself nuts. just my .02
  14. pibull63 added a post in a topic rust all rust set   

    there are several ways to make rust. one is to take steel wool #oooo, put it in a glass jar, (mason), fill the jar with vinegar. leave the lid loose, as this mixture will give off gas as it rots the steel wool. when it is evaporated, youcan brush it on anything and it will give a rusty haze. this works good for diaramas, because it gives wood a weathered look. another is a product called ROTTENSTONE. it makes anything look old and weathered. i used it years ago on my railroad with excellent results. i got it at a craft store, i believe. its been years since i have used it, but i believe it is still available
  15. pibull63 added a post in a topic What would you build out of this?   

    i'll put my two cents in......how bout a space hover vehicle? why i thought of that i don't know. but, thats the first thought that came to me. i think i've been inside too long
