    Airbrush to buy?

    I'm seriously thinking of buying an airbrush and compressor as I've only used the hairy stick in the past, looking for something not too expensive and came up with these two for a choice of just the airbrush at the moment, the compressor will have to wait a few weeks yet until I have the funds. https://airbrushes.com/product_info.php?products_id=22182 https://airbrushes.com/product_info.php?cPath=400_403_1_146&products_id=22154 Would one off these be an ideal starter airbrush for use with enamels of acrylics on Aircraft between 1/48th scale and 1/24th scale? Probably use it on just the odd 1/72 as my hands and eyesight not as good as they were.
  2. Looking good, love the weathering.

    Hello again from Scotland

    Thanks Dennis, certainly an option for next time it happens but since I've bought the decals and paint I'll just stick to the plan.

    Hello again from Scotland

    I built a few models a couple of years ago after a 45 yr absence but due to getting building work done at the house this fell by the wayside, my last build was 1/400 HMS Hood but sadly due to work in the home the hull got destroyed when an Acro fell on it, I was gutted but life goes on. Now I'm ready to start another build so took a 1/24 FW 190 A out of the stash and the decals are all split, I tried to source another set but with no luck so I've decided to do a "What if build", managed to get a set of decals for the Finnish air force ME 109 G so I'll use these and the same colours as stated on the Techmod Decal Sheet. Also thinking about getting an Airbrush but I'll see how this goes first.

    Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk VB

    Who cares if it's not the exact replica of the real thing, it's your build and you've done a great job on it, I have the same kit that I'll build on a later date. Next up will be the rivet counters.

    Welcome Neil, it's your models so go for what you like but painting charts and colour codes may help you if you want to get as close as possible to the real thing, anyhow glad you made it here and looking forward to seeing some of your work.

    Shipping paint

    If your also putting your model stash in the container that will set the alarm bells going of in their heads and they will tear it apart looking for paint! What's the penalty for illegal goods?

    HMS HOOD 1/400 Airfix.

    Slow progress due to watching Snooker, well that's my excuse, Aft deck dry fitted and I tried to slightly weather the blast bags, has it worked?
