  1. Howdie Folks, Having just bought my first airbrush - I have found that all my modelling faults are more apparent. Now that I'm not whacking on a ton of paint I need to improve my filling & sanding skills. Previously I used squadron filler from a tube - but it is very rough. So I bought some Mr surfacer & Mr dissolved putty too - but they don't brush clean in water. Is there such a thing as a liquid filler that can be brush applied & then clean the brush in water??? Any advice would be gratefully received - thanks in advance - Steve
  2. Ultimate Weathering Wash Ultimate Modelling Products Ultimate aim to produce products of exceptional quality that are both useful and easy to use. Their washes are designed along that principal, which is facilitated by the fact that they are water based, so incredibly easy to remove if you happen to make a mistake. The initial range is limited to six colours, but I understand from Lee that there are more in the works. Dark Dirt Light Dirt Mud Concrete Rust Sand They are able to be either brushed on or applied using an airbrush over a gloss coat, so are very flexible in the effects that you can achieve from splashes, puddles and streaks to a haze of grime that has accumulated over time. They are intermixable, so you can create your own shades for specific applications, and as stated earlier, they clean up with water, so you can swish your brushes in a pot of water, and clean your airbrush with the same products you use with acrylic paint. Ultimate's own Airbrush cleaner for example (reviewed here). Before application you must shake them vigorously to distribute the wash evenly within the carrier medium, and if applying by brush, keep agitating throughout the washing process to ensure an even coverage. The washes are quick to dry, and once they are dry, you can remove or move the "dust" that is left behind using either a piece of damp kitchen towel, or a moistened stiff brush. Removal in the event of a mistake is just as easy, and I have used an old toothbrush to remove the wash in order to get it into the panel lines and hard-to-reach areas. Conclusion I have used them extensively on the Aero L-29 I completed recently, and am using them on the X-47B, using the Concrete colour to shade the white gear legs and bays without leaving them too stark. They are easy to use, non-toxic, and importantly, you don't have to think about what you're applying them to as they don't affect any acrylic paints that I've used them with, and certainly won't affect enamel or lacquer based paints. They can be fixed with varnishes after application, and offer a lot of flexibility for the AFV and other modellers alike. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
