  1. Hello thanks for the feedback. This is only the second kit I’ve started on since I was a teenager 30 odd years ago. The other is a Tamiya 1/48 Brewster Buffalo. Have an Iwata Neo so it’s all about learning how to mask and spray etc. Thanks for the help. Mike
  2. Hello I'm wanting to spray the undersides of my Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant in the RAF two tone white/black scheme of 1939/40 era. Any tips of spraying white and black Tamiya acrylics this way. I've read to put 30% red in the black to make it look a little less harsh. Any similar tips on the white? Looking for a Matt finish. Cheers Mike
  3. Hello thanks for feedback. Still undecided. I'm leaning towards the bigger tank as opposed to handle tank as the advice makes sense. To be honest, I do have a compressor so I'm not stuck. But it's a big machine mart tiger 8/44 in the garage. Not the friendliest unit to use in the kitchen! Hence wanting a smaller hand portable unit really. trying to convince wifey to let me use one of the spare bedrooms as a little workshop now the kids have left home. Nee luck so far!
  4. Hi well thinking about it, they both have he same specs and are essentially the same. Just one has a bigger tank ... and it’s not the one I was looking at :). Im guessing a 3ltr tank is way more useful than slightly sleeker looks! So would either one, especially the 3ltr tank one be a good starting point. I’ve seen on the web where people say you don’t really need a tank but I’m thinking it’s got to be a bonus? cheers mike
  5. Hi Dave thanks ... will check it out. Fed up of flickering lights and blown cartridges. Must have spent a fortune over the years. I also build radio control models and trying to spray paint gloss finishes with a mini gun by fluro is very challenging. cheers mike
  6. Hello Anyone have LED based workshop lighting as opposed to the more common 5’ fluorescent tubes. Looking on YouTube at examples ... looks like a way brighter light. Fluro light always seems to be not quite bright enough, and colours look slightly different in it, even with the right combination of warm and cold tubes. I’m considering swapping over but thought I’d ask. Cheers Mike PS this is in a garage so I’m thinking more than just say a small workbench area
  7. Hi would this be a good compressor for use with say Iwata Neo and doing general airbrushing of aircraft around 1/48 scale with acrylics etc? https://www.everythingairbrush.com/compressors/as-series-compressors/ab-as185-handle-tank-compressor.html cheers mike
