  1. I also have a Sparmax. 610. Once in a lifetime purchase and its quality guarantees that.
  2. Buy as many as you can to dive into your childhood nostalgia. Open them, smell them, cut the pieces, test fit them. Then go out and buy their modern equivalents and build those. You will have a much more decent and effortless build.
  3. Mostly for Luftwaffe and IJA / IJN mottling. Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately I cannot achieve it in this way. Yes Mission Models (if only they expanded their line - they would be my exlusive line). I will check it out. Thanks
  4. I spray Stynylrez with a 0.3 side feed Olympos and a 0.4 gravity feed HS. Working fine on both. I don't thin it and I never had problems.
  5. Never used Tamiya. Only this and it's fine. Quite forgiving.
  6. Hello fellow modellers (in the words of Plasmo) I have been trying for quite a while to achieve pencil-thick lines with Vallejo Model Air. Didn't manage so far. I have Harder Steenbeck and Olympos airbrushes. Always thinning with Vallejo Thinner with a couple of drops of Vallejo Flow Improver. I have thinned the paints in oh so many ratios, used all kinds of low pressure going PSI by PSI. I either get spider lines or thick atomization with chunks going all around. I am quite desperate. However, I am willing to continue my efforts as long as someone tells me that it is doable and that they achieved it themselves. I am interested only in Vallejos (and maybe MMP), not enamel- or lacquer-thinned paints (and that includes Tamiya, Mr. Hobby / Gunze). Thank you in advance.
  7. Hi guys, I am a newb in AFV that wants to build some tanks. One of my favs being Matilda, in my searches, I found the Red Army Matilda by Tamiya more or less 15 bucks more expensive than the original Matilda. Can somebody tell me why is that? Searched for it but couldn't find something. TIA
  8. Saw it up close in Moson. Beautiful kit. Bought one
  9. Add also Mission Models Paints, MPR, Hataka, Akan. And also make it an app. Then you can make some money.
  10. I just bought the new SS-100 and 88mm Flak 37 Set by Tamiya and was thinking to combine it in a diorama with a Bf109 E4 that I am building. The question is whether the 109 and the 88mm were / could have been ever so close together in a field in a real situation. I know that I can do whatever I want but I would like to build something that could have been even if it never was... ;)
