    Air compressor question...

    http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/tools_techniques_and_reference_materials/f/18/t/151299.aspx Check out this thread. General consensus on many reviews is....don't buy it. Bob

    Lifelike decals...tips please

    Put a little saliva on the area. Yeah, I know it sounds gross, but it works. Or you could try a drop of liquid soap in the decal water. Bob

    Mineral spirits, as long as the underlying paint is acrylic or protected by an acrylic barrier/clearcoat.

    Alclad II - when to apply?

    Prime and shoot the wheel wells first. Mask them off and shoot the rest. If you have to do minor touch ups on the wells just mask around them. Bob

    paint leaking behind eclipse hp-cs paint cup?

    How do you know paint is leaking behind the paint cup?
  9. I do essentially the same with the pins, but I put the drop of CA in the hole and slide the pin into that. This will push any excess CA down inside the hole and makes for a very clean join of the bomb/missile /pylon . Bob

    F-15 and Mig-29 kits

    I had this over in general discussion, but this might be a better forum for it. Of the Great Wall Hobby kits of the F-15 and Mig-29, are there any particular boxings that are better or have more in them than other boxings from their line? I'm not looking for any certain variant of plane, just the benefit of one boxing over another in the GHW line of kits. Thanks for any help. Bob

    kit recommendations Mig-29 and F-15

    I know that. That's not what I'm asking. My question is...of the Great Wall Hobby boxings of those two models/planes, which are considered to be the best models/boxings in their series. Bob
  15. Of the GWH F-15 and Mig-29 kit boxings, are any better than others? I'm not looking for any specific variants of the planes themselves among them, just the overall quality, ease of construction and kit contents. Thanks for any help. Bob
