  1. I've had this set-up for years now. The flexi-shaft lets me handle the unit better for close-in work and the speed control slows it way down, so it won't melt plastic.
  2. My latest purchase from my daughter's boutique is the set of small foam makeup applicators. They work great for applying pastels for weathering. The dozen that were in the packet only cost a few dollars. Chris
  3. My youngest daughter is a make-up specialist at a local drugstore that is part of a national chain. Anything in her boutique that may be even slightly useful to kit building I have already looked at. I then get her to buy it and she uses her employee discount to get it cheaper. Gentlemen, always peruse through the make-up section of any store that has that kind of material. There is a lot of useful stuff there. Chris
  4. Up here, where I live, there isn't a hobby shop. The closest one is a 5 hour drive south of here. All that's here for hobby supplies are a couple of gamer stores. One has a few kits sometimes and keeps a supply of Tamiya paint. The other one has the Citadel paint. Such is life when you live On The Backside Of Beyond! Chris
  5. Let me try this again! This is what I have for WW2 RAF Interior Grey-green: Now it works! Chris
  6. Stupid forum! This is the worst for trying to post pictures!
  7. We don't have any hobby shops either. It's 300 mile/5 hour drive south to the first one. Such is life, up here on The Backside Of Beyond. Chris
  8. I'll get that sent out right after the holidays! Chris
  9. Can you wait until after the holidays? Then I'll send'em to you, free. I just don'i want to go near a post office for a while. Chris
  10. Photo posted above. This site sucks cat rectums when trying to post images! Chris
  11. I've got these two bits, left-overs from a buddy's build from 35 years ago. As far as I remember, that kit only comes with one complete cowling and that has the open flaps. Chris
  12. If/when I ever do a WW2 Italian aircraft, I'll either use these old Humbrol Authentics: or I'll do a Tamiya mix: Chris
  13. I have also glued some 600 girt sandpaper to flat toothpicks to make small sanders. Chris
  14. Just a bit of paint in a small container with a drop or two of the retarder added, then stirred a bit. Go to the closest place that may have art supplies and get something like one of these. Though I haven't used any yet, I have read that they will work on acrylic model paints. Chris
