  1. PTFE seals for Iwata Neo

    I have an Iwata neo, and have used all kinds of solvents thru it....well, Lacquer, Enamel and Acrylic thinners and gun-washes of various types, with no problems of any kind. If you were to leave the air-brush in thinners for a long time, the seals would swell up, and retain their normal size when they dry out. I am a professional Spray-painter by trade, and feel that the seals in an Iwata 'brush are the least of your problems!! My skills with an air-brush are another matter entirely!!
  2. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hasegawa will probably wait and see what the market will sustain..........
  3. I am on the other side of the planet, and that is good....the much maligned Trumpeter Whirlwind, or....?
  4. Petlyakov PE-2

    Tamiya like in fit, nice to work on!!
  5. Humbrol tins

    I mean, we all like exotic tools, right, and everybody has a Gunze Opener......surely!! I have not found a jar that I can't open with my trusty Gunze opener.....(I don't work for G.S.!!)
  6. Humbrol tins

    ...aren't the glass "jars" Mr. Color et al use, the way to go? Easy clean, reusable, you can see what you have, etc. etc. ?? I mean, I have a "tinlet" of Humbrol No. 11 on the go from 1968, or thereabouts, but you have to move with the times....!
  7. Revellogram F-101B

    I love the old Monograms, pre C.A.D. - pre everything, actually! They are easy builds, just a BIT of modelling required. They capture the look, the presence of those old jets. Just building a Tamiya Mosquito... "click", no glue , but the old Monograms are well worth the effort spent. And the raised panel lines are not wholly inappropriate, just knock them down with a bit of P800 paper before (or after) painting! Nicely done model, I'll put mine back on the shelf!!
  8. MiG-21PFM Eduard 1/48

    Beautiful model.....I have not seen the double missile rails before,are they unique to Polish MiG-21's?
  9. Su-9u maiden 1/48

    I just built the Trumpeter Su-11, so you are in for a good build. Sometimes simple and straightforward is good. My BMF finish is a coat of Tamiya AS-12 from the spray-can and , after drying and masking a few panels, a coat of TS-17....simple and effective!
  10. Robert`s Hasegawa 1/72 F-111C RAAF

    Just apply Hawkeye decals as per normal, I have used them several times with no issues.
  11. Victor Vagaries

    Thank you, xvtonker, I am determined to finish my Victor with retracted RAT's (!). I model everything as "starting take off roll", and perhaps no one can say we are wrong! I've read a couple of Victor books recently, and am loving Airfix's model of this amazing 'plane... Thanks!!
  12. Victor Vagaries

    Thanks, everyone, I am just going to get used to those things sticking up like that - certainly an "interesting" looking aircraft!
  13. Victor Vagaries

    Just putting the finishing touches to the fabulous Airfix Victor B.2 and I am wondering........ I have not seen a picture of a Victor B.2 on the ground with the ram-air turbine inlets in the flush position. They really spoil the looks of this enigmatic aircraft, in my view, and I want to model them "flush"....... Yes/no maybe?
  14. Another Monogram 1/48 F-101 Voodoo

    Definitely not finished, but just too add a little more flavour to this thread! I really like the old Monograms, particularly the Century Series. Found an OLD set of micro-scale decals on the net. I'll put another picture up when it's finished, and I brush up on my Photo. skills!
  15. Another Monogram 1/48 F-101 Voodoo

    I'll see if I can get something up in the "near" future.....!!
