  1. If it's like the Mr Procon Boy LWA Trigger Airbrush. it's worth noting you can use the Iwata Custom grip handle with it... Handle

  4. Archive-X paint

    Your're right; they weren't easy to get at the time, I think a couple of Railway dealers held stocks over here. I had a stash from visits to the States, but only a couple of these are the formulation (and colour) that was used at the time of the original model making. I only recently learned that the Floquil changed their paints at some points and the new formulation were not exact colour matches too the old ones. The old stuff can sell for a pretty penny on Ebay, if and when they come, especially if you need a useful quantity. cheers, Ken

  6. Hi, Just ordered a few bottles of this; anybody else using or aiming to try it? Guy, the owner/producer, has reproduced the original Floquil colours used on the Star Wars fleet. Some amazing results, worth checking out the facebook page for the references alone. a Cheers, Ken Archive- X

    Try this, he doesn't show the 29 inch version here as I think he is currently concentrating on Thunderbird 2. Ben's Model World. His stuff looks terrific and I can only hope I do it justice.

  15. Hi, Can this airbrush be run off a Iwata Power Jet Pro or do you require a compressor with greater airflow; the figures look marginal on paper. Many thanks, Ken
