  1. Ive sent more than i care to admit cartwheeling across the garage. I hit point back in March where it felt like every kit was going to be a battle
  2. Or, you lose said critical part, but while searching for it, you find a previously lost OTHER critical part that youve since replaced....
  3. Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm completely confused as to had what Did the F-14B Bombcat have the same cockpit as its 'D' counterpart?
  4. Not all is lost. I used the same sheet for the academy f-35. For the lighter shade i used tamiya medium sea grey with a couple drops of black mixed. To my eye its VERY close. If you wou!d like a picture id be happy to email some to you. Still came figure out how post pics here 😕
  5. This doesnt answer your question, but i recommend you look into AK Real Color. http://akrealcolors.com/#link5
  6. Title says it all. Ill start; -Superglue will stick to everything except what you want it too
  7. Thats what i ways figured, a blockage. But there are also occasions when there seems to be a phantom blockage. I can see daylight thru the tip, but it acts like its blocked. I thin my paint the same way and usually just spray lacquer. Then use hardware store lacquer thinner for clean up. Thanks for thinks!!! Kurt
  8. To be fair, i can only assume the tip wore out. Spatter or little to no paint would pass thru... the needles always looked fine. The neos just sucked right out of the box.
  9. Yet another "which airbrish" post Some background; Ive been airbrushing for most of my modeling life and have yet to find an airbrush that can last longer than a couple weeks to month. Well tips/needles to be specific. Ive used the following with varying levels of success; Aztec Tips wear out inexplicably, usually good for one model Some cheapy off Ebay Trash Another try with Aztec More of the same Some other cheapy from Ebay Same trash Badger 150, Tips wear out after a couple weeks of use. Used for years, but spent a metric ton on replacement parts Harbor Fright brand Had for maybe 4 years and it work great right up until it didnt. Bought a replacement and it conked out after the 3rd or 4th use Transitioned to Paasche Talon. Worked about as well as the 150 After its failures i decided to buy a Pinkiou brand(Amaozon sheapy) Same as the others, but it had a 1-year warranty which i had to take advantage of 4 or 5 times... It still works fine, but the warranty is over and its only a matter of time before it takes a dump. Oh and throw in a couple Neo's in there. Those were complete junk So can anyone out there recomend an airbrush that i dont have to replace tips etc every other week. Also, i clean my airbrushes thoroughly so I'm pretty sure thats not the problem
  10. iIts what i use. Works great whith Mr leveling thinner
  11. ya, that would help. Sorry, Tamiya acrylic. X-1 gloss black to be exact
  12. I cant find mr leveling thinner anywhere. Either OOS or back ordered. I bought a bottle of tamiya lacquer thinner instead,... Do you think if i add tamiya retarder i can get the same gloss finish as with mr leveling thinner? Incidentally, i cant find tamiya lacqer thinner retarder type in US. Thanks! Kurt
