    Paint Racks

    I'm looking for a vertical paint rack that will hold a variety of paint pots - Humbrol tins, Alclad (small / large), Xtracrylix As I appreciate budget suggestions, is there a vertical paint rack that I can get that will accommodate all of these? Currently they're all in a shoebox and I need the bench-space. Thanks.

    Xtracrylix Help

    Here is a picture of my current spit project. I am doing desert cammo. After a few test sprays of Vallejo I decided that their colours are way off. I normally use Tamiya. Having bought the book on modelling their 1/32 Spit I decided that I could not go far wrong by using the same paint so I splashed out for some Xtracrylix *without reading the reviews). A thought I could not go wrong as a lot the guys seem to swear buy the stuff. Wrongly or rightly I always fork out for a like-for-like thinner. In other words my thinner comes from the same paint manufacturer my first hour was spent trying to get the right viscosity and cleaning my airbrush every few minutes. This stuff clogs better than mud drying on a hot summer day. I got around this my adding in some X-20A. On another site someone said they uses a bit of acetone (not sure about that on a plastic model????), Having got to the point where I was happy to lay down a few coates (about 1 hour later) here is the result. There a light and dark areas (no pre-shaiing was done). Its like the stuff wont stick to the model. Before I return a very large range of colour to H's with a sour note would anyone care to venture an opinion. The mid-stone also seems a bit orange I did use a bit off Halfords plastic whit primer on the nose The Kit is the Eduard MK IX
  3. I'm now getting back into the hobby after a 30+ year absence, and I need to replace my old dried up Humbrol Enamel tinlets, and wanted to go the Acrylic route. Are the Xtracrylix range ok for hand brushing?
