  1. I am going to bite in the hope there will be a Seafire III conversion kit will become available.
  2. I prepare a small tub of hot water with an extra squirt of dishwashing detergent in it. When finished, the airbrush goes in, cup and all, to be flushed out. Leave it in to soak and go for a coffee. Comeback and blow air through it and wipe the brush body dry. Seems to work just fine. Best of luck.
  3. Sacrifice the best kit in your stash to the carpet monster gods. I did one time drop a canopy while at my desk. Absolutely baffled when I couldn’t find it after a drop less then a foot, every item on the desk removed and checked. Had to get a replacement. 3 weeks later I discovered that I had bullseyes my brush cleaning jar!
  4. Booked for my 1st shot this Sunday (Montreal, Canada)
  5. Unfortunately, I don’t expect that any lacquer thinner will have the desired affect. The resin binder in the enamel has been affected. It’s like trying to un-bake a cake.
  6. The components of the enamel are clearly contaminated. Sometimes it’s what’s on the stir tool or a brush, and yes poring thinned paint back in the bottle will do it. Scrap it and get some more.
  7. My 25 + year Badger 150 needs a new bearing and I know I can get it done but for those who have used both gravity and suction cup feeds what is your verdict?
  8. Hi all, I am trying to get this contra rotating prop assembly together but I am not getting it right. The outer gear part D11 is not fitting well (very loose) and the backplate D9 is not really engaging. Any suggestions? Anyone have experience with this one. Their wyvern uses the same set up.
  9. Exactly. Often I look for the modeling challenge - not interested in creating a diorama
  10. I have the old Esci kit and I thought that cutting out the flaps and lowering them might be an interesting exercise. Google searches haven't scored a hit. Anyone have something? tia stan in yul.
  11. Does anyone have a preference? I had a MM bottle which has dried out; it doesn't seem to be available anymore time for a replacement. thanks in advance stan
