    Looking at the ease with which you did this master, you weren't one of the "Mikes" in Two Mikes resins by any chance? A

    I was the bod who snapped up @bootneck 's SRN 4 ( & for sheer masochism the Revell oil rig) . Back to this thread, looking forward to the WW1 male tank, yes the first kit I made all the way back in '72... A

    I could stop off on my way to Devon to torment meet any fellow BM'ers...If @Mike survived meeting me, maybe you could? A

    What have you purchased / been gifted

    One of my holy grail kits, the Airfix SRN 4 hovercraft courtesy of @bootneck. I have fond memories of a 70's school trip departing from the hoverport at Pegwell bay, sadly now little more than a few bits of forlorn concrete. A

    Uschi's Rigthatthing query

    Hi @@Timmas I love this stuff and used it here: I use very fine fibre tip tweezers to handle it and the technique I use is: dot of super glue ( I use zap odorless) where the thread needs to be anchored, then after the thread has made contact, touch the glee with a brush loaded with this: It sets rock hard in milliseconds and then repeat for the other anchor point, the Mig UTI in the link has still got the rigging and I occasionally twang it for no good reason and it stays put! A thought, you may have cut the rigging too short and its overstretched, I usually cut a length 5 mm less than the unstretched distance between the anchor points. Cheers A

    What kind of modeller are you?

    @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies Ahh the voice of reason ( and good colour accuracy to boot). As usual you said what most of us feel , even if you're in cahoots with some order of cooked fruit masquerading as a modeller..That said I miss the wonderfully crazy French (?) guy Gaston who copied everyone's pictures and drew red lines on them showing inaccuracies and the delightful chap who had been working on a correcting a 1/48 109 for two years and only finished the nose ( the link would be much appreciated, once I source spare underwear). In the meantime, you'd think with 2 dedicated modelling rooms, a half dozen airbrushes and a stash of of over 400 , that I'd build something for a change? I'd join @bootneck's procrastinating modellers group but I probably wont get around to it... Anil

    Mr Metal Color: how to thin/clean brushes?

    I use these regularly especially 214 dark iron. I always prime then brush on (its very thin) The paint dries in about 10 mins and can be buffed with cotton bud or similar. Clean up is ordinary lacquer/ cellulose thinner. take a look here where I used it to detail these etch afterburner rings/exhausts

    Can I use an enormous compressor for airbrushing?

    As found lying around in any good dental practise... A

    Removing Klear (Pledge)

    Easiest is good ol' 99.8% IPA ( not India Pale Ale but that might work too), you can buy litre bottle of for £8-10 delivered (google shiny Hardware Ebay) and I also use it as prep before painting to shift finger oils and get a clean surface.. Have left over Futured canopies in a small covered shot glass over night and removed and residual Future with pointy Qtip

    Broken down. Again!

    Jamie, I've been thinking of trying your paints but having heard this brilliant turn of speech, the decision is made, I must do business with you! @Rick Brown, consider yourself lucky, at least you got to drive one albeit not for long, Marshalls in Reading wouldn't even let near their precious Karoq demo, (I might have got it dirty or bought it), if anyone remembers my thread from a few months ago. I pretty much lost the desire to go anywhere near a car dealer again...and my ageing T31 Xtrail seems undaunted by the 150K miles its covered.
