  1. Naturally Faded Paint

    Is something like Humbrol 155 count as a pre-faded olive drab?
  2. Naturally Faded Paint

    Hello, i live in Southern California, where the sun is almost always out. Is it possible fade olive drab naturally if I leave the model out in the sun if it's around 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit? Or will my model just melt in the sun?
  3. Looking for details of American aircraft

    Most tail markings are manufacturer's serial numbers. In the beginning of the US's war involvement, most aircraft used a number identification system. When the US started to bomb German targets via England, they adopted the RAF identification system, with two letters to identify a squadron and a third letter to identify the aircraft. This was later adopted for most aircraft in Europe, though in the Pacific they mostly still used the number system.
  4. I'm Starting Airbrushing- Need Help

    So I've started airbrushing. I'm using Paasche's H series and the R500 compressor (I'm pretty sure it's called the R500, I forgot the name). I airbrushed a little bit of Humbrol 33 Acrylic, and after it took me around 10-15 minutes to disassemble and clean the airbrush. Is there a quicker way to clean my airbrush between different colors? I also want to use some different paints. Do I need a respirator for Tamiya X-1 Black and Testors Acrylic model master colors? Finally, I live in the Southern California sun, so is there anyway I can leave my model out in the sun to fade the paint? If anyone can inquire to me about these questions that would be great. -Oliver
  5. 1/48 Monogram B-25

    To think that right before airbrushing my monogram B-25 this shows up. Good job!

    Slightly better finished? More like an almost lifelike finish!
  7. P 38 Lightning STGB II for 2019 ?@9 on Dec 6th

    I have an Academy P-38 in the stash that would be perfect for this.
  8. Vintage Airfix Kits

    Is the 1/72 mosquito that Airfix sells now an old tool?
  9. Anyway I can build an Airfix Bomber, such as an A-20 or something else?
  10. Vintage Airfix Kits

    I've heard some good things about the B-26, and I'll look into the F-80, as the air museum I work at is currently restoring a T-33 and it would make a good display there.
  11. Vintage Airfix Kits

    Hello, Ive been itching to work on a vintage Airfix kit OOB just for the fun of it. What is a good Vintage Airfix kit that can hold up today OOB?
  12. Airfix 1/48 Ju87 Stuka

    The most tempting thing about making a Stuka is trying not to do pretend dive-bombing missions with it. Neoowwwwww! BOOM! Neoowwwwww!
  13. Revell 1/48 B-17G

    Love it.

  15. My god, the body is so long it looks more like a single F-82 than a P-51D.
