  1. I forgo displaying my collection of paints and prefer storing them this way, Paul
  2. The point of the video was ... to not be continuously "stripping" the airbrush ... as lead Iwata tech Kirk Lybecker says in the beginning of this video ... The point of the response was how to seat the needle without damaging the nozzle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCsWug3n2U4&feature=emb_logo Paul
  3. I think it's very easy to do if you don't seat the needle properly after disassembly. I always use the method that I show in this video so that you don't flare the tip or cause wear to the needle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulWFoG5Inmw

I think that idea is a bit limiting and, from my point of view no less work, but that depends on your comfort and skill level ... for those of us who grew up with Pinewood Derby cars ... adding a spine is by far and away the easiest with a minimum of surgery. If you like to stay in plastic and are

  8. The Sculpt is much grainier ... I've never found it useful for modeling. Paul

  10. Here are a couple of fixes for issues that I pointed out in the review ...
  11. If these are indeed true lacquers, every subsequent coat is a solvent for the underlying layers. Lacquer paints actually dry ... in other words ... they get hard due to the evaporation of the solvent. Application of additional coats will soften your underlying layers.
