  1. F4U-1d paint conversion

    I'm asking for model color, not model air.
  2. F4U-1d paint conversion

    I have a Tamiya 1/72 F4U-1d & I need to convert the colours from Tamiya to Vallejo Model Color. Here are the paints listed in the instructions: AS-8 X-3 X-4 X-5 X-6 X-7 X-10 X-11 X-18 XF-1 XF-3 XF-5 XF-16 XF-19 XF-58 What colours do these correspond to in Vallejo Model Colour paints? Which paints re neccesary & which arent?
  3. Anyone heard of RWBY?

    It's a web series that's inspired by anime (like the Last Airbender series). It's set in a world with four kingdoms that have to defend themselves from creatures known as the Grimm by training huntsman & huntresses to fight against them. Check it out, its pretty awesome. First episode of the first season
  4. Academy 1/72 F-4J or AMK 1/72 Kfir?

    Man, I'm really stuck between chosing these two kits for one of my next builds. I would like to build the AMK Kfir (cause I'm a huge Mirage fan), but I'm not so sure as to whether it's a good choice because I'm a beginner & haven't completed the kit I'm currently working on. OTOH, the Academy F-4J is more beginner friendly, but also costs more (22 AUD for the AMK vs 32 AUD (sale price) for the Academy). I also would be building an Eduard MK.VIII Spitfire for christmas & it should mean that I wouldn't really need to buy much paint for it if I select the Kfir (due to similar camo schemes). Does either kit have better fit than the other? I'm specifically looking for an easy & quick build.
  5. Difference between Vallejo polyurethane & acrylic gloss varnish?

    It's this:
  6. Difference between Vallejo polyurethane & acrylic gloss varnish?

    Does water work as an effective thinner?
  7. AFAIK, the difference is that the polyurethane varnish is more durable & dries quicker. But can the polyurethane varnish be thinned with water or acrylic thinners? Does it yellow or brush well?
  8. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    Sydney, AUS.
  9. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    Any hobby stored within my access don't carry Xtracrylix varnish or paint.
  10. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    Would Vallejo gloss/matt work better for decal base, or as a finishing coat?
  11. Micro Set or Mr Mark Setter?

    I was also asking which one is the more effective setting solution, Micro Set or Mr Mark Setter?
  12. Micro Set or Mr Mark Setter?

    Which setting solution do you think works better (I'm intending on getting some)? Also, has anyone used a combination of Mr Mark Setter & Micro Sol? If so, tell me how it worked.
  13. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    All right, which is better for the brush, Humbrol clear or Vallejo gloss? Note that Pledge/Klear isn't available in Australia (Where I live).
  14. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    Is liquitex gloss varnish any good? Also, is the polyurethane vallejo varnish still good for handbrushing?
  15. Recommend me a good acrylic gloss varnish

    There's also the microscale gloss varnish, how is that for handbrushing?
