  1. Wow i have always been facinated by the Titanic However even though i live in a big house where the hell would you display it? Moving it into my garage to paint it would be a project in itself
  2. i bought the aritist loft and am returning it and going with the derwant review to follow
  3. I went to Michaels( a us disount art and hobby store) and got their artist loft water color pencils (24 pencils including a brush)it was 16 usd then 40% off coupon so 10 dollars usd. If nothing else it is worth it to try it out. I am not sure the derwant ( which are very expensive) is worth the extra $. I am not sure about the metalic colors I thought the point of this is that with water they ran? Duplciating dirt grease oil and mud. Metal colors don't run as such and I would guess their are easier ways to do chiipping etc. \ https://www.michaels.com/default/10126136.html#jmp-view-reviews
  4. I ended up the acrylic lacquer from ak interactive
  5. Good to know hobby inc shipping is still expensive
  6. they have ak interactive but the shipping is rediculous perhaps because it is an lacquer the first one I mentioned was much better with the shipping
  7. since the testors colors are gone (not even ebay although was able to get the fulcurm grey) Trying to find the grey green is a pita. Also painting part acrylic and part enamel another pita. anyway found a source for ak interactive acrylic lacquer thinned with lacquer thinner. They have both the grey and green grey reasonable shipping from https://www.michtoy.com/ odering from hobby inc usa the shipping waws going to be over 15 bucks!. From any of the euro stores like wise. so this is a psa for those going to build the trump mig 29 a
  8. I agree I am tempted for my next build to not even try to match them but you did it beautifuly any tips?
  9. mig ammo also has modern russian colors any body use any of their paints?
  10. the hakata line looks nice but I was planning on a VVS bird and that is for warsaw pact. One problem is knowing which colors to use the akan looks good but I may be better with the singles. What thinner does it use modeling bob? lacquer thinner mr color thinner I also have mr color reducing thinner which goes with everything i have used so far
  11. For my upcoming build of the mig 29a from trumpeter. There are so many choices( none in laaquer or enamel unfortunatly) will have to change to a acrylic which I am not as a familar with so some recomendations
  12. thanks for posting that interesting to watch
  13. http://warbirdsnews.com/warbird-articles/necessity-mother-invention-paper-drop-tanks-wwii.html the above has a color photo surprisingly the metal tanks were gray not silver probably neutral grey
  14. incredible work what colors did you use for the nose blue? I have the appropriate colors from testors as directed in the decals but wondered what you used
  15. a good f -86 not the crapola we already have
