  1. Buying my first airbrush Questions.

    I decided to buy some products related to airbrush maintenance. I purchased the SharpenAir needle sharpening tool and an Iwata Airbrush Maintenance Tool Kit. The Sharpen Air product is listed as being compatible with most of the major airbrush manufacturers' needles (Paasche, Badger, Iwata, Grex, Harder and Steenbeck, Master, Sata and DeVilbiss) Due to lack of necessity, I have not used the SharpenAir needle sharpening tool yet LOL However, I am sure that sometime in the future it will be most useful. I did use the needle packing screwdriver in the Iwata set. It made removing the old needle packing from an Eclipse gravity feed airbrush easy to do. Putting a new packing in is relatively easy. The tricky part is getting just the right amount of compression on the packing so that there is a slight feel of friction as the needle passes through the packing. For those interested, I purchased these through Maple Airbrush in Edmonton, AB. This is an online e-business. Prices and shipping are very reasonable.
  2. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I do too Dann. But you just can't have too many of this Fujimi Dino kit. LOL

    This eBay purchase just arrived today. I'm very happy, especially with the price
  4. Revell Germany Benetton Ford B194 instructions

    Hi Grady, and welcome to this great forum. Although there definitely are F1 modellers on this site, I would consider this request a real long shot. I would suggest that you go to a site called "F1M.com" It is a site that is mostly focused on F1 modelling. There are many members there who would be more than willing to assist you with this request. I personally appreciate all things F1, but personally don't have this particular kit.
  5. Ladies and Gentlemen: My C7R: 2016 Daytona winner

    An amazingly realistic rendition of this Daytona winner. I hope this build process was as rewarding for you as it was for those of us lucky enough to follw along.
  6. Porsche 918 martini / HD Etch / Plamoz Whell

    Ziya, all I can think of is W-O-W! A beautifully done 918.
  7. Tamiya Mazda 787B

    A fantastic job on Mazda's "giant killer". i especially like the fact that all colour was painted. May I ask whose paint did you use? Zero, Gravity, Tamiya, or other? The colours look spot on!
  8. Porsche 962C

    I really like the way this Porsche turned out. Well done Andre.
  9. 2009 dodge challenger

    Beautiful paint on the body and in the engine compartment. Flawless windshield. I always seem to get fingerprints on mine. LOL
  10. Tamiya Ferrari F1 kit for trade

    Hi Droogie. Do you have any specific open wheel cars or GT/Prototypes in mind. I may have something in the stash. Any kits that I might have would be sealed/bagged inside. I have not done a lot of trades, but most recently have traded with both Renegade and Matija.
  11. Finished my first model

    Great result on the Fireball car. You are off to a great start. Thoughts on how to proceed with future builds and a positive attitude are both great assets for your future modelling endeavors.
  12. 1/24 Dunlop/Denloc in white

    Hi Brian, I just checked the IndyCals website out of curiosity. Under the sports car tire decals, it has "Duns - Coming Soon". You might want to email them to find out if this is still true, and if so, how soon.
  13. Question about me new TCP Master TC-20-T Compressor

    Mike , is the compressor that you bought? If so the on/off psi values are factory set. The pressure regulator/water trap is on the left in the picture. You lift the knob on the top and then turn it to either increase or decrease your pressure. Do this while your airbrush is attached, and the compressor is on, and you have the trigger depressed. This will give you a more accurate reading of the psi that you are spraying at. Hope this explanation is clear and makes sense.
  14. Hasegawa lancia kit questions

    You are correct. The Lancia 037 Rally 1983 Sanremo Rally has full engine detail. The Lancia Delta HF Intergrale 16V '91 1000 Lakes Rally only has the bottom portion of the engine molded into the chassis plate.
  15. Hand painting

    Quentin, I realize that nobody wants to have to buy an additional product to make painting possible. Tamiya has a product called Paint Retarder (Acrylic). It come in a glass bottle the same as their Extra Thin Cement. The cap is turquoise in colour. It is an additive which slows down the drying time. It allows the paint to self level. Tamiya acrylics are great when airbrushing, but somewhat problematic when brush painted. Decant a small amount of paint to a separate container, and then ad a drop or two of the paint retarder. Hopefully this will help. Thinking of Snake's response, acrylic paint retarder could help with most craft acrylic paints. It may not even be necessary to buy Tamiya's product. Many art supply brands have their own acrylic paint retarder.
