  1. A-6E TRAM Intruder

    Shouldn't be a problem - the nose is full of lead / epoxy (not that the instructions mention nose weight). Don't see how it would work if you had the nose opened though

    Today's work - first off preshading with Black, Sky Grey and White Then on with the light grey Then on with the Dark Ghost Grey Using Mr Paint for this - I'm not entirely convinced by the contrast between the two greys but they do spray incredibly nicely Peter

    More work today - sorted the fuselage seam, refuelling probe, masked off the gear bays and added the pylons. Then a coat of primer over the top Peter

    it'a not too bad actually, it's more that it's in 2 parts, and when I joined the two halves and got the seam sorted the back edge were a squashed a little, So it needs a smear of filler to blend it together

    Today's work - nose, engine doors and masking Peter

    The Grey / Dark Grey one from the box (lo-vis) but not having the guide handy can't tell you the exact squadron. I'm dreading the nose, dry fit didn't look very good but I have epoxied a load of lead in there for weight.

    Today's work - finished off the wings, again loads of parts - fit isn't quite as good as the rest Peter
  8. A-6E TRAM Intruder

    Another day, and the inner wings are on. Lots of parts but the fit isn't bad just needed some Mr Surfacer Peter
  9. A-6E TRAM Intruder

    Today's work - first the main landing gear, once again with diecast metal inserts and a little Then the wrestling that is involved to get the fuselage closed up - it's fiddly rather than a bad fit, but it's inserts for the gear bay / arrestor hook and the intakes. Just used some dot's of CA to get an instant grab and then a little Mr Surfacer on the joints Peter

    Nope just the kit decals with loads of Mr Softner / Setter (whichever is the green bottle one :-))

    Today's work - the front gear bay. Very nice this, plastic parts that fit around a metal core for strength Peter
  12. Please help me make up my mind: H&S Infinity or Iwata HP-CP

    That's fine but I got ZERO guarantee support on the nozzle which HAD A MANUFACTURER DEFECT - it sheered off at the thread - independently verified by a metallurgist that there's a material defect. Unsurprisingly I have a very poor opinion of Iwata's importers in the U.K. after that, as all they offered was to sell me a new nozzle. If it's defective after spraying for under 2 hours it's not good.
  13. Please help me make up my mind: H&S Infinity or Iwata HP-CP

    I was using their socket wrench rather than the little spanner. Just highlighting that bad things happen to all manufacturers, and I was very disappointed with the absence of any Warranty support at all , especially on the high end brush - apparently Nozzles and Needles aren't covered by the warranty regardless. Anyway back to the initial question again - my personal airbrushes I use the most in order: 1) Iwata HP-CH - for just about anything 2) Badger Sotar 20-20 - small detail work 3) Badger Renegade Krome with 0.4mm needle - Primers / Varnishes H&S Infinity 2 in 1 and Iwata Custom Micron - both used though not go-to brushes. Also got a couple of others (2 cheapo ebay chinese ones I use for anything that might damage a brush, like spraying pigments, Ultimate Apex ). I don't think there is a single brush that will do everything, and I really do like having a separate brush for Primers / Varnishes with a bigger needle. If I had to have 1 brush it would be the HP-CH with probably the Apex as a Varnish / Primer brush.
  14. Please help me make up my mind: H&S Infinity or Iwata HP-CP

    I had a nozzle shear on a new Iwata Custom micron (i.e. it sheared off at the screw as it had been overtightened at the factory) - with zero help from the Guarantee other than selling me a new nozzle for £48 - Still bitter about it over a year on, so they can go wrong. I love my HP-CH, which is bullet proof in comparison but the Custom Micron is just too fussy (for fine stuff the Sotar 20-20 is better and way less finicky). I've got an Infinity CR Plus 2 in 1 and hardly use it - the trigger is just too 'spongy' for my liking. You do need to try them in the 'hand' if you can as it's a very personal thing
