  1. That's an awesome trick! Thanks for that --J
  2. Hey Guys, After a long search, we've fund quality mini-scissors that make cutting and using super-thin Micro-Masking Tapes easy. Here's a little ditty on using both to mask clear parts and canopies. https://modelpaintsol.com/guides/micro-tape-and-mini-scissors-masking-made-easy Thanks! --John
  3. Glad you like them I've been using them for a couple of months-really handy. The reverse clips are ridiculously heavy duty: they'll last. Thanks! --John
  4. Hey Guys, We just added some really nice Reverse Alligator Clips on sturdy Bamboo shafts that are awesome tools for holding parts while painting. Here's a little ditty on them: https://modelpaintsol.com/news/reverse-alligator-clips-and-a-simple-painting-rack Thanks! --John

  6. Hey Everybody, I've been building the new AFV Club 1/48 U-2 from the sprue test shots and just finished the main instrument panel and cockpit tub. To replicate the glass of the dial faces I used this new (to me anyway) glue that sets clear in seconds when activated by UV light. Bondic Glue: a very handy addition to the workbench and available at a lot of hardware stores :) Here's the link: https://modelpaintsol.com/builds/afv-club-u-2-build-48112 Thanks and Happy Modeling! --J
  7. Yea, there's not much this guy doesn't do well. Glad you liked the article
  8. You're welcome! I know the builder and he's an exceptional modeler.
  9. Hey Everybody, Here's an awesome build article on the Wingnut Wings Sopwith: it's beautiful. It was just completed for a display of WWI aircraft in the Museum of Flight, Seattle. Suggestions are provided for preparing custom mixes of WWI colors as well: pretty informative. Enjoy! https://modelpaintsol.com/builds/wingnut-wings-sopwith-camel-32074-build
  10. Hey Everybody, Here's a little ditty I've been pecking away at for a while that has suggestions for matching the dilution of paint (ex 25 or 40%) and airbrush nozzle size (ex 0.15 or 0.40mm) to the spray job (Fine-Line or Clear Coat). Drop me a line if you have any comments or Q's Thanks and Cheers! --John https://modelpaintsol.com/guides/matching-the-paint-dilution-and-tip-harder-steenbeck-infinity
  11. Hey Guys, For those of you that occasionally delve into 1/48 scale aircraft, the new Minicraft T-34A is out and reviewed here: https://modelpaintsol.com/reviews/minicraft-48-t-34-mentor-11671 I've tried to address the riveting issue's raised on other sites by making a pictorial comparison between the kit and a 1:1 Mentor. Bottom Line: To me the rivets are not a big deal; nothing that can't be handled with a little sandpaper and re-scribing if you choose to do so. We'll see how the kit is received....... Thanks! --J
  12. Thanks for the feed back! I appreciated your time. I'm in the process of getting some smaller racks for both the 2 and 5ml tubes so stay tuned. best, --J
  13. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you bluntness ("old and a fart") A couple of things to consider -These tubes are good for smaller sized mixes (2-5 ml) such as the average airbrush paint cup. Tamiya bottles are great but not so much for smaller volume mixes (too much head space). -Pipettes are good for volumes of ~1ml or so but not much smaller. The 2ml tubes have gradations smaller that 1ml making smaller volume mixes easier and more accurate. -The tube racks are 4.25 for two. Each rack holds 25 tubes. So, 4.25 get's you rack space for 50 tubes. That seems reasonable too me. -Glad you have an endless supply of Tamiya bottles My build rate has never been fast enough to generate a lot of free bottles for mixing or storage. -Not a tech. Thanks again for your comments and best regards, Stuka, M.D., Ph.D.
