  1. Yes. Spraygunner carries the complete range of spare parts. I believe they are a certified dealer of the Gunze airbrushes as well as Iwata.
  2. They'll run you about $300 at spray gunner. Not exactly cheap, but for what it does, you can't really beat that price for what is basically a custom micron. Those will usually run north of $500. You may be able to find one for cheaper on eBay.
  3. If you are looking for a white that is just a little bit "dirtier", Mr. Color has a paint in their line called "off white." I use it for painting intakes and in my opinion, is more accurate than just pure white. As for airbrushes, the ps770 is just as good as a custom micron at half the price. I was blown away with the really fine lines I was able to achieve. I was even able to spray individual dials on an instrument panel. Which makes it really useful to do touch ups when you accidentally slip with the brush. If you properly thin the paint, you can do wonders with this brush. It really is that good in my opinion. If the price of this airbrush scares you, I can also recommend the ps274. Just a solid, all around airbrush. I replaced my evolution 2n1 with this airbrush. I have found that it can also draw really fine lines with almost no effort. And for only $90, you really can't beat it. I bought both of my airbrushes at Spraygunner.com. There is a video on YouTube from doogs models that goes into detail about his experience with the ps770. I hope this helps you out. Just my honest opinion.
  4. Just passed by Maxwell AFB here in Alabama. No less than 30 Seahawks we're parked in the field next to the runway. Not sure where they are based at, but I hope their home doesn't take a direct hit. To all in Florida, please stay safe and evacuate if it becomes necessary. Hurricane Dorian is now a category 5.
  5. Lacquer thinner in an ultrasonic cleaner. Set on longest setting for best results. Every ten minutes or so, I take the bottles out to see how clean they are. If any paint is being stubborn, I take my putty applicator and scrape the sides of the bottle. Then let them keep soaking. Repeat until the bottles are clean. You can get a decent ultrasonic cleaner from eBay for around $20-30.
  6. Good planes for sure, but it has nothing on the F-99 Windows XP.
  7. While I was reading an interesting article about the fictional Mig-31 Firefox, I also came across this. I thought I would share it with you. Basically a scaled down version of the B-2. Although only a concept drawing, I can imagine some of the technology that would have gone into this wound up finding it's way to other projects. https://theaviationist.com/2016/07/29/take-a-look-at-this-cool-drawing-of-the-northrop-low-altitude-penetrator-concept/
  8. I found this article and thought it was quite interesting. What if the Mig-31 Firefox was real? What would the performance characteristics be like? What type of engines used? I thought it might be worth a read. https://theaviationist.com/2017/12/01/the-story-of-the-mig-31-firefox-all-you-need-to-know-about-the-most-awesome-fictional-advanced-high-speed-interceptor-ever/
  9. If you are going for a modern buff, there is a bulge protruding on top of the radome just in front of the windscreen. Edit: looking at pics of today's B-52's, it looks like some have it and some don't. Or none have it, now. Interesting. I didn't know they were removed.
  10. I also got mine from spraygunner. They seem to have the best price on the ps-770. I also bought the ps-274(I think that is what it is). It's also a really good airbrush and can be bought for around $95. I replaced my H&S Evolution 2in1 with it and I'm really happy with how it sprays. I can get pretty fine and tight lines with it. But, I noticed Badger's stynlrez primer tends to clog it up faster than my Evolution. So, I use the Evolution for primers only, now.
  11. The PS770 is a very good airbrush. May be a bit pricy for some, but very good value for your money. It can give a custom micron a run for it's money at half the price.
  12. For all of the problems you had, you turned out a stunning model!
