  1. I have read that this gives some really good results. I am guessing that Mr Leveling Thinner must be a slower drying lacquer type thinner?? So you cannot get as good of a result by spraying a coat of straight Tamiya lacquer thinner over a finished coat of gloss? Chris
  2. I have typically use future as a pre-decal gloss coat but always wonder if there is something better whenever I apply it. I have also always used Testors Dullcote in the little spray can for my final flat but would like to use an airbrush applied finish. I recently tried mission models gloss but it tried to goop up in the AB which caused a panic moment, so I am wondering about it. I have considered trying tamiya flat but have read a lot of stuff about people saying that it can be bad about frosting on you and sometimes it wants to stay sticky. Can anyone tell me what has worked for them in a consistent way so that they are not afraid to use it on a model that you have worked on for months?
  3. Haha, sorry to have encouraged your bad habit Curt, but admitting that you have a problem is the first step. Glad you enjoyed dealing with spray gunner, their customer service is super D duper.
  4. Just heard back from Mission Models, they said their paint works in nozzles of .15 and up. This ab should be fine at .2
  5. I don’t know, another reason to buy it!! Lol. Thank you for the compliment on that tank btw. It only lasted a few months before he wrecked the bike. I had to paint another just like the first one.
  6. You are so right, perhaps I phrased my initial question badly. It should have been 'I want another ab, would this work?' 🙂 My Eclipse is pretty sweet and certainly capable of more than I am. I painted this for a customer long ago with a Passche VL with a gigantic medium tip (not sure of the actual size) and I find my Eclipse much more capable than the VL, al least for detail.
  7. Here is a Roden 1/32 DH-2 with the Eduard PE kit. My last biplane ever, it stopped being fun long before it was finished.
  8. I pretty much use Mission Models paint, and sometimes Vallejo. That is my worry, will this thick acrylic go through that teensy nozzle without continuous trouble. I know what you are talking about with thin paint. I used to paint motorcycle tanks and helmets with House of Kolor and it was probably thinner than water. A dream to spray!
  9. I have never sprayed model air but have thinned down model color and sprayed it successfully. I always add the airbrush medium by Vallejo. It really helps thin it and reduces tip dry.
  10. I have a Badger 155 (siphon) that I use for primers and my beloved Iwata HP-CS that I use for everything else. I was wondering if I am really missing out by not having an ultra-fine ab to use occasionally ? Ihave thought about the H and S infinity but it is in the 'holy cow!' price range.I have also looked at the Badger Sotar fine (only $90} which seems super affordable and gets great reviews. I do freehand camo and enjoy painting minis and my eclipse has done everything I need it to do. But I have never used a finer brush than the eclipse and wonder what kind of difference it would make? Edit: I should say that i pretty much just use acrylics, mostly mission models paint. I certainly would not want to buy an ab that would not spray my preferred paint Chris
  11. I had an entire bottle of it turn yellow on me a couple of years ago. I doubt that I had even used 1/2 oz of it. It was not exposed to heat, or the sun. Made me worry about what would happen if I had used it on some canopies. Chris
