    Batmobile - 1966 Deluxe Edition **Finished Pics on Page 3

    Most excellent work sir! The figures look really good. I have the kit that came with the resin figures sculpted to resemble West and Ward, but I wish I could get hold of the PE set yours came with. The set was apparently never offered separately, according to Round2.

    Takom King Tiger Initial

    Hadn't thought about the weight of the barrel. Good fix. I've got the one with the Porsche turret in the stash. Opened the box, thought "OMG", put the top back on and put it in the stash. Maybe one day when I feel adventurous.

    Absolutely awesome job! That's the Takom KT without interior, correct?

    Compressor spray pressure issues

    Thanks, that was the answer/information I was looking for. So basically nothing is really wrong it's just incapable of spraying higher by design and physics. I have a follow up question. I have been thinking about getting a larger compressor which will allow me to spray with a mini touch up...

    SMA What's New In Your Stash?!?

    Picked up these over the past few weeks. Plan on building the 'Bullitt' Charger & Mustang. Will use the body from the '69 Charger kit, because it has a vinyl top like the movie car. Have some aftermarket tidbits to make them easier and more authentic. Have a hobby retailer near me who mixes...

    Compressor spray pressure issues

    Yes, there is only one gauge. It's a regulator with a moisture trap at the bottom. When the compressor is turned on, it builds to 60psi, then it shuts off like it's supposed to as pre-set by the manufacturer. If you don't press the trigger on the airbrush, the pressure will slowly drop to 45psi...

    Compressor spray pressure issues

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that the factory preset on the compressor for the highest PSI before auto shutoff is 60psi. It automatically turns back on at 45psi. I'm only trying to find out if the regulator is faulty, or if the compressor itself is going bad. And there are some mediums which...

    Compressor spray pressure issues

    Haven't posted here in a long time, but I have a question regarding compressors. The one I have I purchased off of Amazon 2+ years ago with the trio of master Brand airbrushes it came with. Just the diaphragm unit with no tank. I have always been suspect at the accuracy of the regulator, but...

    Battle Of Midway

    All I was referring to was that if I thought I was going to be doing any paint masking on a specific area, I sprayed the part with Duplicolor adhesion promotor before priming the part prior to assembly and/or paint. Just to guard against paint lifting up or peeling when I removed the tape...

    Battle Of Midway

    Agreed, a pretty straight forward build. And now it's finished. I also decided, for nostalgia's sake, I would use the existing diorama for the backdrop. I couple of the pieces went missing over the intervening years, but the essence is still there. The Zero was missing a landing strut, but since...

    Battle Of Midway

    The subject title might lead one to believe this is about ship(s), but it's really the two opposing aircraft from the battle that turned the course of the Pacific theater of WWII. This is a 1/72 scale Revell kit from 1976, though it was originally molded in 1962. They may have been originally...

    Revell F-105 Thunderchief 1/72 scale

    Re: Revell F-105 Thunderchief 1/72 scale(Finished) The Thunderchief is done. I decided not to weather it, though I may incur the wrath of the realism police. I just liked this one the way it is. The canopy hatch is supposed to open and close, but the hinge mechanism is so poorly designed that...

    Best sources for vintage cars information?

    Wondering if someone can point me in a direction for finding information on older automobiles. I'm working on a '55 Chevy Bel Air and would like to find out what colors were used for the interior for that year, if carpet was installed, and other details not found on Wiki. Thanks.

    Revell F-105 Thunderchief 1/72 scale

    Been a while since my last progress report. I left off with the last update where primary construction was almost complete and primer had been added. As of tonight, The final paint color was applied to the main body of the plane. I have yet to assemble or attach the landing gear and doors, but...

    Revell F-105 Thunderchief 1/72 scale

    Thanks! I do have that Perfect Plastic Putty, and was planning on using that for the wings.
