  1. if you just Google...1/12 scale ignition coil and lines...you will find several helpful links.
  2. The only option I can think of is to paint the red ones silver and put clear yellow over that. Bob

  5. This tells you every thing you need to know. Scroll down to his testing of Alclad. https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/87511-italeri-cf-104-starfighter-kicked-up-a-notch-feb-2721-decal-rivets-half-done/page/27/ Bob
  6. Prime with flat white first for coverage, then go gloss or semigloss. Tamiya fine white surface primer right out of the can will work with care. Bob
  7. My first thought is that if you make that out of 3/4" melamine it is going to weigh a ton. I would frame it out of 1" by 3" pine and line it with some white surfaced material. I got some at Lowes. Secondly, since it is a square box I would put some kind of a panel in it to direct the airflow to the fan if you are going to mount it to the top. I just put a piece of foam board in it angled against the back. I clip some newspaper to it to keep it clean. Bob
  8. I was thinking of possible sanding/handling and surface contamination. You seem to be doing all the right things. If the paint AND primer are lifting off, that could be due to surface contamination. Bob
  9. You need a gloss finish for a wash to work as desired. If your finish was flat, that may have been the problem.
  10. One more thing to try...run the compressor with the air line (hose) attached, but without the airbrush. Just let it run for a few minutes to blow any moisture out of the line. Hold the end of the hose to see if any water comes out. Bob
  11. You should be able to push up on the fitting at the bottom of the moisture trap to drain it Possibly the trap ca be unscrewed. I drain my compressor after every use. Bob
  12. Is there visible water in the moisture trap on the compressor? Have you drained that? When was the last time you drained the tank? Bob
