  1. Aircraft Perfect Metal – Set 2 (CS 48) Lifecolor via The Airbrush Company We’re always on the look-out for new or better ways to recreate the shine and patina of natural metal, so my modelling ears always prick up when I hear of a new one. Lifecolor of Italy have been producing some good acrylic colours for years, and this new set contains a half dozen shades of metal colours, handily grouped together in a cardboard box to add to your collection. Each one comes in a 22ml plastic bottle with a black cap and sticky label to identify the contents. Inside the box a
  2. Lifecolor Acrylic Paints I was first introduced to Lifecolor paints by The Airbrush Company a good 8 months ago, maybe more, and as it happened had an immediate use for the colors that I received from them. Previously I'd never really heard of this Italian company's paint, although I had subconsciously taken them in on visits to the likes of ABC Modelsport. This kit was painted by the author using Lifecolor paints, and an Iwata TR-1 airbrush. A build review can be found here. The paints are available in translucent plastic bottles of a similar sh
  3. Shell Case Perfect Metal Acrylic Paint Set 1 (CS47) Lifecolor via The Airbrush Company Contains: UA786 Polished Steel Modern Shell, UA787 Lacquered Steel Late WWII German Shell, UA788 New Shell Brass Shade 1, UA789 New Shell Brass Shade 2, UA790 New Shell Brass Shade 3, UA791 Spent Shell Burned Brass I decided to test the “perfect” part of this set, as it’s always tempting to investigate an acrylic metallic to see if it’s a viable alternative to the lacquer paints I’ve used for years, but degrade and turn gritty after a while. The paints arrive in the
  4. This Great Wall Hobby's new kit in 1:48, built pretty close to OOB, but for some scratch-building in the cockpit area. It's a great kit with some funny build sequences, but don't let those frighten you off The full build can be found here if you're interested Review sample courtesy of
  5. Arism Viz Portable Cordless Compressor Sparmax Via The Airbrush Company Eventually, most modellers consider a compressor to drive their airbrush of choice, as air cans are too expensive, and they just don't have the finesse of a good air source. Generally speaking, compressors are big heavy things that you leave in one place connected to mains electricity for the majority of its working life, and quite a few of them are rather noisy into the bargain. That's been an accepted part of modelling for quite some time now, but what if you wanted to use your airbrush awa
  6. Wilder Weathering Products As well as doing all things airbrushes Airbrushes.com also stock a selection of paints and other modelling products. One selection is made by a company I have never seen before called Wilder. Wilder do a range of weathering products which seem to be all the rage now. The first two bottles are an enamel based wash. They are grease and old grease. The grease is a standard greasy brown, and the old grease goes that grungy dark brown/black colour that old grease does have. They are thin to begin with and can be further thinned with any oil based thinner without a
  7. Airbrush Cleaners Premi-Air Two new items just in from Premi-Air, Airbrushes.com own brand, to help keep your airbrushes in tip top condition, even if you’ve been lax enough to let paints dry within the tip. The first is a Foaming Cleaner whilst the second is a much stronger product called Airbrush Liquid Reamer. The Foaming Cleaner is designed to be used as an end of session cleaner for extra thorough cleaning away of water-based products, such as alkali soluble acrylics. Using the straw provided, you can direct the foam at the airbrush nozzle and front components where the bottle atta
  8. Cleaners, Paints and Powders Alclad II Alclad have been around for a while now and they continue to improve and build their product range. Here we look at a new cleaner, paint, wash and weathering powder. The new airbrush cleaner is designed to be used after using other Alclad II products. If it’s anything like other Alclad II products you will need to keep your mask on when using this. As to what’s actually in it there is no information on their website, on anywhere else for that matter, but I imagine there’ll be some Xylene and acetone, much like other cleaner of its type. It does state
  9. Liquid Pigment Sets LifeColor I've been a LifeColor user for some years now, and I really like their handy boxsets that include pretty much all you need to accomplish a task. These new sets are a bit of a new thing however, as they profess to be "Liquid Pigments", which is a new term to me. They are odourless, and can be washed off with water if wet, or removed using a special Remover liquid once dry. This gives the modeller a lot of leeway in weathering their model, applying effects here and there, or all over and then cutting any over application back as needed. They apply on a satin or
  10. MAX-4 Airbrush Sparmax via the Airbrush Company Sparmax are a huge producer of airbrushes and compressors under other brands, but as you'd expect they also produce products under their own brand, and the Airbrush Company sell their range from their website. The MAX-4 is designed to be a budget airbrush, although there is very little about it that feels budget. It arrives in a small poly clamshell case inside a card sleeve with the Sparmax logo and colour scheme, and a choice of either MAX-3 or MAX-4 noted on the side. As you may have guessed, the number relates to the needle/head size, and
  11. ARISM Mini Compressor Sparmax via the Airbrush Company Sparmax are a huge producer of airbrushes and compressors under other brands, but as you'd expect they also produce products under their own brand, and the Airbrush Company sell their range from their website. These compact compressors fall between the tiny "fish tank" style compressors and the tanked compressors that weigh a ton! Ariving in a reasonably small and attractive looking box in the Sparmax Black and shades of orange scheme, which has a convenient carry-handle projecting from the top to ease your burden, the unit is f
  12. Stainless Steel Tweezers Wilder Tweezers can be a very personal item, and finding a good pair can be full of disappointment if you don't get the opportunity to try before you part with your cash. I have one pair that I guard jealously from careless (small) fingers, and curse vociferously if I drop them inadvertently for fear of ruining the tip, which has happened a few times so far to such an extent that I have had to reform the tips, which resulted in them being a little smaller than they were. Please excuse the grainy scan from the small inlay card. This new range of tweezers from
  13. Douglas TBD-1 Devastator 1:48 Great Wall Hobby The Devastator was an interwar design for a torpedo bomber that entered service in 1937 during the “Yellow wing” phase of American Naval aviation. Although a capable aircraft, it was outclassed almost as soon as the Americans entered WWII with only around 130 being procured for use by the US Navy. It was a slow beast, and not the most manoeuvrable, which although it performed quite well in its first uses against the Japanese, subsequent attacks suffered heavy losses, rapidly diminishing the numbers, and after t
