  1. Thanks, @Foxbat, I'll look into that!
  2. Thank you for your input! I ordered the set from Ammo Mig, actually. I use airbrush and have used Ammo Mig previously with good results. The set seemed reasonably with the "correct" colors in one set.
  3. I may have found the answer myself, after all. Sometimes it's really hard to find information on the internet, but both Ammo Mig and AK Interactive seem to have paint sets with the correct colours. I'm now planning on buying one of these: https://ak-interactive.com/product/bundeswehr-desert-camouflage-colors/ https://www.migjimenez.com/en/acrylic-colors/271--bundeswehr-afghanistan-scheme-smart-acrylic-set.html Any thoughts on that? Regards, Henrik
  4. Hello! I have ordered the kit 03284 (Dingo 2 GE A2.3 PatSi) from Revell. When looking at the instructions I have a hard time finding out which paint I should be using for camo 2, the one used in Afghanistan (the lighter colors). Revell calls out for a mix of: 70% 314 + 30% 89 70% 361 + 30% 89 I’m planning on buying a camo-paint-mask for the kit, and that one calls out for “Africa brown” and “beige”. Can someone help me finding acrylic equivalents from Ammo, Vallejo or AK Interactive (or similar)? I don’t know what names to look for... I prefer to not use Tamiya acrylic if possible. Thanks!
  5. Indeed! Thank you, @louiex2! Off to Amazon I masked the tires for the Kubelwagen the other day with VML, and it actually worked rather well. The product itself is great, it's just the application that's tricky. I applied it straight from the bottle, and then I "whirled" it around the rim with a short piece of sprue. With microapplicator this should probably be even easier. I am however pleased with the result. VLM applied after painting the rim in body color Peeled of nicely!
  6. I tried toothpicks, but I found them to "drag" the liquid mask along in spiderweb-like strings. Didn't work at all for me. What I eventually tried - and found working ok - was old spruegates. A rod of plastic seemed to work ok. But I will definitely try the tip from @louiex2 regarding micro applicators.
  7. Thank you for your reply, Giorgio. Ammonia won’t work then since I’m using acrylic paints. Shame... I thought liquid mask was such a great idea, but if I have to use a “new” brush every time it’s gonna become annoying after a while. I tried a toothpick, but that didn’t work either. I’m gonna give it a few more tries, then I think I’ll resort to cutting masks from Tamiya tape or similar myself.
  8. Hello, fellow modellers! When using VLM, I “pour” it on the edge of, say, a rim for a roadwheel. When trying to dispense it around the wheel with a brush, the brush clogs almost instantly. It’s also really hard to clean the brush with water. What should I be using instead of water for cleaning? And how do I prevent the brush from clogging up? TIA Henrik
  9. Just like @Werdna I've also just started airbrushing. For many, many years I had an Aztek A470 (the kit with multiple nozzles) in a drawer but never quite had the opportunity to use it. Now, as an adult, the time has finally come. The Aztek, however, is not an easy-to-use airbrush. I'm struggling quite a lot with selecting nozzles, and somehow the paint seems to find it's way into the body. I bought a cheapish AB from a local "everything and nothing" reseller here in Sweden called Biltema. They sell a lot of rebranded chinese products (tools and what not), and also airbrushes. It's a double action 0.35 mm needle. I'm actually happy with it for the time being in preparation for saving up for a "proper" airbrush from H&S or Iwata. I really like working with the airbrush! It's a whole new level of building the kits when the paint looks a lot nicer than before. For me it's only been pros this far, @dandove, even with the struggling Aztek. If you decide to go down this road I'm sure you will not be disappointed!
  10. Newbie member, but I have already found great joy, information and education at this fine site. Money donated! Keep up the good work, and I sincerely hope that you guys will get enough funds to keep the site going!
