  1. I started with a single action siphon feed with air cans, then finally to a cheap double-action grav bought off ebay with a compressor from Harbor Freight. I don't do anything really special with it, just preshading and light coats. I try to keep it clean between colors too. The weakest part I've encountered is the threads for the nozzle. Twice I've had that break off in a brush, requiring me to buy a new one. But seeing as they run about $15 ea that's not a big expense. I have one for color and one for clear coats. I used Tamiya almost exclusively, and for my needs I hardly ever have to thin them. I've never brush painted before, except for a few attempts before realizing I have to let the coats dry between application. I find airbrushing a lot quicker. How do you preshade with a brush?

    Love that interior!
  3. 1/18 Fairey Firefly VX376

    Liking that a lot!
  4. PK409 Dornier Do-18G-1 update 20-10-2017

    Something beautifully ungainly about it.
  5. Tiger Striped Butcher Bird

    Shame that engine is all covered up. Nice work.
  6. Vought F4U-1D Corsair Tamiya

    I made one of these, with the colored PE. Real nice model, and if doing it straight it just falls together. Check Ultracast if you want to do any extras, or at least just the exhaust. They have some finely cast exhausts that look just great.
  7. Tamiya 1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-3

    Love them Butcher Birds! Nice.
  8. Airfix 1/48 Hurricane

    Imgur or Flicker. Both work great for me. Quick and easy uploads, no pop-ups and no hassles! Good luck with the fitment, I'm sure you shall persevere. Or recreate a scene from Airplane...
  9. Very nice! Kudos for scratching the new tailplane. Looking good.
