:) Oh, man, Austin, your model is really nice, you pay a lot of attention to techniques... and all that in 1:72... really Very good...

What a "spicy" touch, the bullet holes ! :)

Your videos ar great-small shows, we´ll be following the Helldiver, sure, Austin ;)

Follow Scweinhund´s advice... if the weather (cold) allows you... while you get the booth... better fully open the window of your room... the organic volatile compounds from the enamels, thinners, and alcohol in the Tamiya paints are really fast getting into one´s Central Nervous System through breathing... again, whilst trying to get the spray boot, it would be very advisable to use a detachable mask with organic filter... ask your seniors to buy a mask with MIXED filter, specify that it is for working with organic compounds "white spirit" type and with low alcohol airborne concentrations...

Keep on, Austin...
Cheers, and Congratulations,
RG

Thanks man.

For now I am only working with the window open and a box fan draining air out. Luckily, until I get a spray booth, the cold won't be a that much problem down here in Florida. 8)

Thanks,
Austin
