  12. Intermmitent paint flow in all my airbrushes

    Jorge, So the paints turned out to be old. Glad you figured out that it wasn't the airbrushes. Cheers!
  13. Enlarging Decals from 1/48 to 1/32?

    Hey JWest21, I've gone back into the section for email notifications and it doesn't work. I believe the email notifications were excluded during forum change-over. Thanks for the reply.
