  1. she is going to look good in 1/32 I think. Thanks for the tips and encouragement my friends. I'm learning and trying. Thanks again
  2. Had to build this practice model ready for the group build, I will be making it in 1/32 for the group build
  3. Why would any alien cleverer than us not visit us to find out if they were. They could not know until they visited us could they
  4. The only thing that can top this is if, and it's a big if lol you could do a diorama in a formation
  5. Lovely build my friend, if you airbrush don't forget you can decant from the cans and get much better feeling for how much paint and how it's going to react or look as you are spraying
  6. It's not a problem with the needle size or the paints. I think it's what you are thinning it with and no matter what you use to clean especially windex will leave alot of unwanted stuff in your airbrush as windex forms a layer to help keep things clean. Start at the beginning and clean the airbrush in light soapy water then rinse in clean, spray with no thinning and if it goes gooey in the airbrush it's the paints or what's in the airbrush still. Mix the paint with your normal thinner in an old paint jar and see if it goes gooey then it's the thinner, if it's not gooey in the jar but still is when in your airbrush it's got to be what you are cleaning the airbrush with
  7. I would never use cheap windex with my ammo paint. It's nasty stuff and as paint company's change their formula how can you tell how it will react especially if you mix in your airbrush cup
  8. I take it you are shaking the bottle well and using a bit of thinners(water or an acrylic thinner like mr hobby 110 at about 80 paint 10 thinner) you do remove the needle and cap, nozzle when you do a clean down of the airbrush and don't leave anything in there ie cleaning fluid that will react with acrylics
  9. I was in need of a reason to build a car of some sort so this is it count me in please Dennis
  10. By the way I've not started the model but was just giving it a once over as I can't let it sit in the box with out taking a peek lol
  11. as a toolmaker I would be ashamed of myself if a tool went out producing a mould like this. I can only put it down to the company that is running the tools not maintaining the tool properly during a run as I can't see tamiya letting a tool out that has such short ejector pins
