    I need help

    Levi have you tried using Dettol? I've found it's good for removing acrylic, enamel and oil paints so may be worth a shot?

    Primers with airbrush

    I've always used Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer thinned with their lacquer thinner 50:50 It sprays nicely but as others have mentioned, it's very smelly. Recently I've started buying Mission Models paint and primers. These also spray really well but with the added bonus of no nasty smell, as well as being super easy to clean up. Their primers come in black, white, grey and red oxide. I have no affiliation with Mission Models, I'm just a very happy customer who wishes I found their paints sooner

    Removing enamel from plastic kits.

    Hi Simon Like someone mentioned earlier, give Dettol a go if you have some on hand. I recently stripped a figure of paint and it worked well. I had both enamel and acrylic on there and both came off easily after soaking for about 30 mins. Any paint that was still there came off after a gentle scrub with a tooth brush.

    Paint rack

    Rummaging through drawers was doing my head in so last weekend I made this. The thickness is probably a bit of an overkill but it stands up on my bench no worries without having to screw to the wall. While I'm definitely no carpenter, I'm very happy I can find my paint easily now

    Hi from New Zealand

    Hi guys, thought it was about time I bit the bullet and joined up after lurking around for a while! My name is Paul, I live in New Zealand, and after making a couple of models as a child I got back into it about 5-6 years ago. Sadly, this didn't last long as I lost interest and despite starting a number of projects only actually ended up finishing one About 3 months ago my mojo magically returned and armed with a decent airbrush I've nearly managed to finish off a Tamiya 1/35 Panther and a couple of Alpine figures to go with it. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the people here - it seems like a very friendly and helpful site! Cheers Paul
