  1. new or used, barter, sold, or free. Paint on it? Not a problem.
  2. I have a 1/72 Hasegawa K-25 boxing that is about ready for paint. However, the front canopy still shows the sprue gate no matter how much i sand and buff it. So if anyone has a spare or one off of an old kit that they are getting rid of, i'll gladly take it/trade it/pay for it.
  3. i love the F-16, and i just cut them off and i do not miss them when i am done.
  4. i had it happen with the 36251 and 36375 when thinned a bit with X-20A and with the 36375 when thinned a bit with water. They mixed easily and went on great. Nothing happened that would lead me to think that the paint was bad or old. I'll tweak my technique with the suggestions and try again. I've used MM acrylics in the past and currently use almost all Gunze.
  5. So i bought some AKAN paints, as MM discontinued 36251 for the Mod Eagle scheme. I have used it twice now. Once thinning a little with Tamiya's X-20A and the second time thinning a little with water. Both times it sprayed on great and covered well. However, both time the paint has stayed a bit tacky. It is as if it is not dry, but when it is weeks after i sprayed it, it should be. Any ideas and tips to try? Thanks
  6. Dang Eric, another super build! Love the weathered look on this dark scheme.
  7. As i got ready to paint my F-15C (1/72 Hasegawa to be 123rd FS - Caracal!), i noticed my old bottle of MM 36251 was no longer a liquid. So, off to the LHS to buy a new bottle. Discontinued, is what they tell me. So which paint to buy to paint the Mod Eagle scheme (i prefer acrylics, but beggars can't be choosers)? I love the Gunze Aqueous paints, but they do not make a 36251. TIA
