    Spraying Klear

    Fair point that Nigel. I will ponder for a while.

    Cheers Ratch, I'm only chucking £20 at a cheap one, so not the end of the world if it kills it.

    Spraying Klear

    Evening. I was considering buying a cheap 0.5mm airbrush to put coats on models, have the UK version of Klear, I don't want to ruin my H&S ultra, so was thinking of picking up something <30 notes. Does Klear spray ok, does it need thinning, with water? Or???? Cheers, Sharky
  4. I was chuffed with myself for making a headlight for a T90 tank when I lost the original. I might go set that model on fire now and sell all my gear. This is flipping amazing. What a talent you have mate.

    Squealer!

    Everythingairbrush have been brilliant. Rang them about 845, by 2pm they had phoned back to tell me a replacement will be here Wednesday. Top customer service.

    I have a compressor that has over the last week developed a squeal when starting up, last for 30 seconds or so. Runs fine after. Airbrush operates fine. Assume it's the motor but there are no obvious oil points. Looks like a std Chinese compressed with tank, bought from Everythingairbrush online, but his only 4 months old. Is this expected wear and tear or should I be looking to go back to the seller with a complaint? Or blast in some WD40?

    Pre-shading panel lines.

    Cheers, my further steps have taught me I need to thin out the desert yellow more as I'll need to redo some of this..I went 3:1 paint to thinners but I'm realising it might need to be 1 : 3 or thinner! Still I just enjoy doing it so repeating is no problem.

    Designing custom paint jobs for jets. What a terribly boring and mundane job that must be!.

    Cheers Paul. I've done a bit of messing and will mix in the ordinary orange gloss. Might not be right but a test of the paint made me happy and if different then great. I'm never winning awards so I'll settle for that.

    Just bumping this. @techniquest. I'm just building this and was trying to get the colour right. You mixed Copper XF6 with orange clear gloss X26? What ratio? 75-25 as suggested in the instruction guide?

    Pre-shading panel lines.

    So my first attempt at pre-shading. Reactive armour on a Challenger 1, Desert camo.
  12. Flipping heck. You must have infinite levels of patience. What a smashing job!

    Pre-shading panel lines.

    Hi, I'd like to have a crack at pre-shading panel lines bit being new to airbrushing, what's the best way to get thin lines? I've got an H&S ultra with 0.2 or 0.4mm needle. Assume the 2 is best, but what combination of paint, pressure and distance is a good place to start? Thinned paint? Low pressure, <10ps? Close to the target? Any advice welcome. Cheers, Sharky

    Old models

    Same here. I think the family appreciate how quiet it keeps me building them. Also stops me from doing other DIY stuff where the chances of me damaging myself or the house are significantly high.

    Haha. I wish I had the space. My option really is a loft museum. But that's going to mean a loft clear out. Please, Britmodeller, don't make me do that.
