Finally , I bought a 1/24 Heller Renault 8 Gordini

I'm trying my very best not to cave in & buy one of those before they go out of production and start fetching crazy prices on e-bay again. I'll probably crack in Telford!

 

It's actually been well over two months since I have bought anything to fess up to, mainly as I'm saving my pennies for the recently announced Belkits Ascona 400, RS200 and Metro 6R4 and the Beemax Peugeot 306 Maxi Kitcar. It could get expensive next year...!!

I forgot that I also recently acquired the Italeri Police Range Rover .  I assume it's a reissue of an Esci kit , but it looks nice enough .

But please don't ask when I'm going to build them - that remains to be seen! :winkgrin:

 

Cheers :bye:

I have come to the point where I need to sell one model for every one I buy.

As a general rule, I use ZeroPaint grey primer and ZeroPaint colours, as I find these easy to use in my air-brush.

They also have a huge range of colours that you can choose from.

I also have used Tamiya Acrylics (the stuff in the little bottles) thinned with Mr Color Levelling thinners. That has produces pretty great  results as well.

 

I both cases, I have used ZeroPaint air-brush cleaner to clean the sir-brush.

 

Cheers, Alan.

I also use Tamiya acrylics in the airbrush, thinned with Tamiya's own x-20a thinner. I prime with Tamiya fine grey from the rattle can, or ZP primer like Alan. One thing: don't start using your airbrush for the first time on your model, but practice on something cheap first.

thanks, everyone, I have some Vallejo surface primer, I heard somewhere that could be used in the airbrush straight out of the bottle?

I echo that. It just stops you form cocking up the model before you even get started...

It avoids having to strip the model if you do...

 

Cheers, Alan.

A week or so back I finally got an AMT 1/25 Ghostbusters II Ecto-1a :)

 

For everyones information, it was the listing on eBay for £25 best offer. 

I put in a cheeky offer of £20 which was accepted. Postage is free. 

 

The box is supposedly damaged but  I'm damned if I can find any apart from a slight dish to the lid on the cellophane. Once removed, the lid popped back up.

3 FleaBay purchases at bargain prices; An Accurate Minitures ‘McLaren M8B’ (1/24), Eduard ProfiPACK ‘MiG-21R’ (1/48) and a Hasegawa ‘Charge Mazda 767B’ (1/24). That should while away a few months next year!
