  1. 1/48 Jets for sale

    Zip code sent via PM. Thanks.
  2. 1/48 Jets for sale

    I'm interested in the 1/48 SOL R-77 and Zotz Decals 48-007 Rafale. Are they still available?
  3. Acrylic Clear Coats

    How are you applying the gloss clear coats and the flat clear coats? Below is a picture I just took showing Tamiya X-22 thinned with Tamiya X-20A on the left spoon and Gunze H20 thinned with Gunze Aqueous thinner on the right spoon: Both were applied with my Iwata gravity feed airbrush with a 0.5mm needle. As you can see, Tamiya X-22 is glossy and Gunze H20 is flat.
  4. Acrylic Clear Coats

    If you want to stay strictly with acrylics, then Tamiya X-22 thinned with Tamiya X-20A will yield great results. Gunze H20 Flat Clear thinned with Gunze Aqueous thinner is dead flat. Tamiya now makes X-35 Semi-Gloss Clear and XF-86 Flat Clear, but I have not tried them. These two should work great when thinned with X-20A also.

  6. Tamiya Laquers

    I'm curious to find out if they are any better than Mr. Color lacquers. I highly doubt it.
  7. Top Coat Problem

    Was the base coat allowed to completely dry for at least 24 hours? Sometimes Gunze Aqueous base color coats remain tacky for several days, based on my own experience.

    Never will dump $$ on that POS.
  9. Best Matching Flat Light Gull Gray Paint Revealed

    Will do it on a different batch. I suppose I can apply gloss clear and dullcoat on just one color to check. Any preference on what gloss clear and flat clear to use? I think I have every single one of them.
  10. Best Matching Flat Light Gull Gray Paint Revealed

    No difference in hue regarding the AMS 595A color chips.

  12. Best Matching Flat Light Gull Gray Paint Revealed

    There you have it. To my eyes, Model Master Enamel matches the best, followed by LifeColor.
  13. Best Matching Flat Light Gull Gray Paint Revealed

    Vallejo Model Air 71.121 FS 36440: Closer than MRP, but still just a little too blue.
