    Paasche H for bottle spraying bodys. and for attaching to metalizers

    Badger Krome for everything else

    I quit trying to get one airbrush to do it all.... I rather have 2 that each do what they do very well.
    I didn't care for trying to spray a body with a fine detail airbrush and small cup.
    and both are easy to clean

    kicker ,,, never had a need for superglue to dry any faster that it already does, or is there a different reason it's needed ?

    technically none of there are "glues" , they are adhesives( or cements).
  12. scalenut added a post in a topic Krylon Fusion Paint   

    I have seen the fusion plastic specific paints but don't see a need for me as I always prime the model first , so no need to have a paint formulated for plastic.
    I may have to get a can to try tho,, never know
  13. scalenut added a post in a topic What type and brand of rattle can primer do you use?   

    If covering major rework maybe so, but there shouldn't be a consistent need to have such a high build primer that block sands off, in sheets of powder for use on scale plastic models.containg fine engraving.
    I typically use primer to help detect minute flaws and provide a good base for following colors.

    I use pro-modeler(flory) wash. it dries to a dust than wipe with a q-tip before clearing.
    make the job super easy
