    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?
  5. 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
  11. 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

    Rant - Food for thought?

    When you are doing that very precise airbrushing (with a wonderful H & S airbrush) do you use the quick fix adjustment knob or just use you finger on the trigger to control paint flow? You have given some very polite and thoughtful responses. I commend you for that. Thanks Bob

    Rant - Food for thought?

    I think a lot has to do with the quality of the videos. There are some that I wouldn't watch more than a minute they are so bad. Yours are very well done. I especially like the ones on how various modelers do the airbrushing. That really can't be shown in just photos. Photos may show the steps, but not the process to arrive at the final result. I also like the way you note what paint, thinning ratio, needle size etc.. As Yogi Berra famously said...you can observe a lot just by watching :) Photos and videos are both valuable. Use whatever appeals to you...you can't learn less! He also responded to a question of mine in very short order. Bob
