  1. Welcome to the forum! As suggested, you could use a photo hosting site, like dogbody's choice of https://www.flickr.com/ or my choice of https://postimages.org/. Alternately, you could reduce the size of images to fit the ARC limit. I resize my images to 640x480, so they often, but not always, fit the ARC limit. Nonetheless, I usually post from postimages, like this photo Here's the same photo directly uploaded.
  2. While I don't use MRP, I've been using Mr Color for years. A couple of hours is fine for masking; I do detack the tape on a cutting mat or the clean palm of my hand.
  3. Looks like Some Body is working on it... <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0"> <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document"> <title>New Page 1</title> </head> <body> <p>test of ARC homepage</p> </body> </html>
  4. Congratulations on the paper and your degree!
  5. The reason this thread surfaced again was because some FINE "member" is desperately trying to look legitimate. I've reported the post. Hopefully they'll be dealt with...
  6. This is looking great! I completely agree with your hands-on building comment.
  7. Nice work! Whatever challenges you had building it, the result is quite good looking!
  8. I've never tried decanting spray paints, so I cannot comment on such techniques. Do you normally use Model Master enamels? Perhaps your technique is better tuned to different paints? By "middle of my passes", do you mean spatter starts after a while of good painting? Or, do you get spatter between the start and end of a single stroke? If the former, perhaps you're getting some paint build-up on the tip that's causing the spatter? I've learned to "burp" the airbrush every so often. This means pointing the airbrush away from the model and opening up the air and paint flow to maximum for a second to make sure there's no paint accumulation at the tip. Some airbrushes have a slot in their tail to enable the needle to be manually pulled way back, expressly for this purpose.
  9. Color me cautious. Along with being dubious of the efficacy of the compressor, its hanging off the bottom of the airbrush probably feels overly weighty and intrusive. I'd like to see documentation of "Widely used by the general model enthusiasts."
  10. Happy Birthday! I do remember Xenix. Boxes of floppies to install the thing.
  11. There are a few choices down here in La La Land. Brookhurst Hobbies in Garden Grove Military Hobbies in Orange Tony's Hobby and Toys in Baldwin Park Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair.
  12. Thanks for pointing this out! The Nature Communications article is quite interesting. This diagram in particular clearly shows the above cited points.
