  1. I use Mr. Surfacer 1200 to prime. I have used Alclad primers before and they work pretty well. I just prefer Mr. Surfacer. Vern

    Would you be willing to share your drawings? My wife has a Cricut and I would love to give this a shot. Vern

    VT F-16C-25 PIDS pylon question (with GBU-31)

    Make sure your buckets are facing outboard. I was with the 140th Wing and Niels is correct. I can't remember the year break, but IIRC the 86 birds had one chaff/flare dispenser on each side. The 87s had three on the left and one on the right. We flew PIDS to bring up the number of dispensers. Slant GBU-12's on a TER on the PIDS on station 7. Vern
  5. Let it dry thoroughly before recoating. You can also thin 1:1 with IPA or Mr. Color Leveling Thinner for better control. Great stuff! Vern

    Question about AIM-120 training version

    Training AIM-120s also have no motor exhaust. Fill in any holes on the end, sand, and paint. Vern

    How to clean inside airbrush behind cup.

    What Mstor said. Also, before throwing it in the ultrasonic cleaner, you need to remove your o-rings and packings. Iwata makes a special tool set that allows you to get them out easily - https://www.amazon.com/Iwata-Medea-Iwata-Professional-Maintenance-Tools/dp/B019EGII40 Vern

    First Lunar Landing anniv next year GB?

    I am interested, but no guarantee of success. Vern
  13. Do you know what year Terra Haute became an intel wing? We picked up a couple of loaders from them in Colorado a few years before I retired. Vern
  14. Both units were deployment partners for my old unit, 140th Wing/120th FS. While I don't know for sure on the inlet size, I will go out on a limb and say Indiana's jets were big mouth inlets. Do you have a plan for surgery to convert from the P&W engines to the GE engines and the inlet? Vern "Without Weapons, it's just another airline."

    Airbrush Splattering Paint

    If you can afford it, splurge for the Iwata Eclipse. Much easier to maintain than the Revolution. Vern
