  1. Wow that's a work of art!
  2. Just thought i would update this... Turns out my hand was forced in the end, long boring story but basically the dining room is being turned into a bedroom, perils of having kids moving back in! So i've converted my brick shed into a modelling den, and its very nice having a dedicated space. I don't need to pack up after a session, my tools are organised and i've even got a spray booth! Just wish i had more time (and energy...) for building now. Thanks again for all your advice!
  3. Ammo MIG is great, they do a flat aluminium which brushes on very easily. I pretty much only use these paints now, they are really good.
  4. Wow, great start - Your figure painting is top notch!
  5. I'm using the dining room at the moment, and while my wife is very understanding and doesnt really mind, i'm conscious that my ever growing stash of paint/tools/etc is slowly but surely taking over... Plus its a pain having it all in boxes. I have actually had a breakthrough though, i have a shed/workshop attached to the side of the house, which i was using for something but these days its just a place to store my tools. So i've decided to use that, and get rid of a lot of tools and equipment i wont use again. A change of career has put paid to that. Its brick built and has power
  6. Nice work, i'm tempted to have a go at one of these, it would look lovely next to my A6M2. As @jenkosays, the undercarriage is a bit tricky, you're supposed to be able to operate it, but mine is just down - If i tried to move it now it would just break.
  7. You will enjoy this build, i did the A6M2 a few years back and it was ace. As for Aotake, i did a lot of research when building mine and in the end was none the wiser!
  8. Excellent. thanks guys - Thats just the kind of info i was hoping for. I This is interesting... Realistically i'll be running a small compressor, a radio and lights. But i'll be needing some kind of heat source, probably an oil filled radiator so that might too much in the dark cold winter months? Once again thank you everyone for your help, its certainly given me a lot to think about! Nick
  9. Excellent, thanks guys - Very helpfull!
  10. Thanks Paul, will have a think and will be in touch. Nick
  11. Cheers chaps. The base is no problem, will use large paving slabs for that like i have done with the 'garden' garden shed. It will be used for building and airbrushing, the stash can stay in the house. Power will be required, so i know i'll need an electrician for that bit. I guess really the only 2 unknowns will be what size will be sufficient, and as i will be using it all year round it will need to be insulated and heated. Size wise i've just been out and measured the spot i have available (should have done that first really), i'm looking at a 10' by 8' - Should be
  12. Hi guys, hopefully you can help me out here a little.... I'm currently doing my building in the dining room, but i'm getting tired of having to unpack/pack all my kit all the time and slowly but surely i'm starting to take over the room, this is not going down well with the wife.... So i'm thinking about putting up a dedicated shed in the garden and kitting it out as my modelling haven. I think i've read/seen over the years on here that some of you have done similar, so if you have can i ask - Does it work as well as you expected? Best size? Rough cost and work involved i.e best way to
  13. I've been using my trusty H&S Ultra now for a while after buying it from the very nice chap at Little Cars at Telford back in 2014. It was my first so its taught me a lot, and at the same time i've probably been a bit ham fisted with it. But it's been fun and i'm improving. I'm finding now that i'm starting to struggle with it, i think the nozzle is a bit worn and the trigger assembly feels a bit slack with not much feel. I've been looking at the H&S Infinity, what realistically would i notice over the Ultra? Its a fair amount of money but if the gains are there i do
