  1. No need for any special thinner is one thing I loved about the MM enamels. You thin the right ratio and down it went smoothly and it stuck.
  2. Anyone using the Hataka Hobby Orange Line paints? looks like they have to be thined but how would it work with hand painting in a cockpit?
  3. Yeah, I'm looking for FS and RLM colors primarily and the ability to hand brush would be nice also at times.
  4. I've been trying to adapt to the Vallejo Air but I'm not a fan. Does the MRP need to be thined and is it lacquer based? I have a spray both that vents outside so the fumes are not a problem.
  5. I'm looking for a paint suggestion to replace the MM enamel line I've been using for so long. Need something with accurate colors that I can get here in the states that will lay down similarly to the MM enamel. I've tried a few water based acrylics but I really don't like them. Tamiya is fine but they really dont have a color range like the Model Master line had. I can't really go to the LHS and try things out cause they've all closed up in my area and I'm not driving an hour away.
  6. Yeah, it might be your thinning ratio. I've never use Lifecolor but you might have to thin it more. Maybe try a little more air pressure also cause that will help atomize the paint but then you also get more overspray.
  7. Recreation Depot to close its doors. https://www.nj.com/business/2022/04/nj-hobby-shop-to-close-after-32-years-of-business.html
  8. Yeah, the Bulldog is a standard in my area but no other Tamiya kits. They unusually are every other week for the 40% off on kits. I also thought that they usually do there model clearance in the summer.
  9. I use Tamiya lacquer thinner with MM and Tamiya acrylics. Make the finish very durable.
  10. The only options I get now are REPORT and SHARE.
  11. I have that shield also that says I'm a Mod but I don't see any new features or anything. I remember when I was a GB Mod I could edit anyone's post in the GB that I wanted But that was the only place.
  12. Send Printshop an email! When I last asked they were able to print some that they didn't have listed.
  13. I've been doing this since before Al Gore invented the internet.
  14. Nice work on you car and your wife's truck. A friend of mine had a 70 Cuda in sublime with a black vinyl top. It was a 440, 4spd car with hounds tooth interior.
