  1. I use Mega Hobby always get great service from them and another one that is really great to deal with is Warrens Hobbies. I deal most always with these two because of the availability of models, paints and price. Plus both ship very fast.
  2. did the whole thing big dice high school tassel garter from friends wedding baby shoes all on my 66 Ford Galaxy 500 Convertible. That was then, This is now a 2008 Escape with a handicap sticker hanging from the mirror Jeff
  3. Got to agree with John the smell, well lets just say I would rather pickup the dog poop,which I do very other day I used the Organ Green Candy just once and it stunk up the whole house. John is right it sprays really great right out of the bottle. Wife's orders NEVER USE THAT BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH IN THE HOUSE AGAIN. My buddy gave me the green after he spent over a hundred and fifty bucks for the set. He got the same orders from his wife. That's after our wife's got together and talked about it. Now we are allowed to use that kind of paint in the garage only with the door open. Pretty hard
  4. I also use Gorilla Super Glue but I use the Micro Precise type. The bottle comes with a anti clog cap. been using it for about 6 months and never had a clogged cap. It sure has saved me a bunch of glue and a lot of bunged models. You can put just 1 drop on what you are gluing or if you need more just squeeze the side of the bottle again. Comes out 1 drop at a time. very neat and precise. Jeff
  5. Mike: When I use Steel wool, if before I paint or between color coats, because steel wool will leave specks of it self on the raw plastic or the painted coats and I don't want them in my paint. Usually I just go to the kitchen sink and use the sprayer an give it a good spray down and set it aside to dry. Before doing anything to my model body, I steel wool it very good than take it to the kitchen sink and give it a good washing in warm water with soap to remove any mold release that might be left on the plastic. Set it a side to dry. When it's dry I rub it with a soft cloth an than go t
  6. Mike don't give up, just remember this is a hobby not a job. Just slow down and take your time and it will all come to you. Hell I have been at this for over 60 years and I still make mistakes like that. Paint is my biggest problem, Heck sometimes I have to strip the paint and start over. Foiling takes time to learn with a few disappointments. I don,t use much photo etch but when I do I have to stop and think about it. Glue on paint, hell anybody that makes models has probley had that happen. As somebody on here once said ( Quote : every model is practice for the next one : Unquot
  7. 2X clear is acrylic as are the 2X paints..
  8. I use Createx and Auto Air Paints all the time for several reasons, one being the many different colors they have. Another being that I can spray them in the basement without stinking up the whole house. When they need thinning I use water and or windshield washer fluid and have never had any problem with them. I spray between 25 and 30 PSI with a #5 needle in a single action Paasche H Air brush. Which works just fine for me. Sometimes I use a brush where I have to or need to. As far as sanding I never do it, I use a #0000 steel wool which leaves a nice smooth finish for the next co
  9. No it's not an electrical system. It runs purely on the city water. It's hooked to the water where it comes into the house, than they run a plastic pipe over to the sump pump hook it into to sump pump just like it was a sump pump and run it back out to the outside. I really can't explain it the right way, cause I ain't no plumber. But it works, and that's all I really care about.
  10. We had to have our sump pump brought up to code because the EPA told the city that all houses needed a sump pump instead of the water going into the sanitary sewer. Well ours only needed a couple of ground hoses re-directed and a couple of out of date drains cemented shut. While they were doing that I asked if there was any kind of back up system if the electric went out. They said
  11. got to go with Nicks way---works really good for me---except I shake the can before I put it in the warm water and again when I take it out of the water.
  12. comes want adds I' look in the want adds and see if there is some place to play. Baseball season is almost up on us anyway.
