Hi all, Looking to build a simple paint curing box in preparation for the wet/damp/humid winter months ahead. This summer, I put my freshly painted birds in a big plastic tub and sealed, with a couple silica packets in to eliminate moisture.

Hi all, brand new user here and at 60 years old and forced retirement around the corner, I want to get back in the hobby. I got the Academy Minicraft B-29A Enola Gay and I am utterly confused by the paint numbers on the instruction sheet. I have looked at some of the paint conversion web sites but without much help.. Can someone guide me in the right direction on coverting paint numbers to Tamiya or other well known paint manufacturers? Thank you very much..
