Haha I know that feeling... Where the f%#& did I put that thing?! Even worse, when you're dead certain you put the damn thing in that container!Well ,
She's finally ready for color-coat .
But it's been so long that now I'm back to undecided on the paint scheme
I had sliced off that tiny air scoop just forward the canopy to get it out of the way for the corrective work , and of course when I went to reattach it , it had evaporated from the container I had tossed it into .
So , I made a replacement from a tiny chunk of 1.5 mm aluminum tube and some lacquer putty .
( That will be the only question I'll have in the afterlife - " where did all that stuff go ? Those bolts , that gasket , that entire friggin 2X12 .... " )
She's getting painted TODAY .
I keep pushing this thing back in front of myself - " dude , you need to finish this F#*[email protected] "
The underside will be MiG's Hellblau , so I'm starting there and by the time that's dry I will have decided on her camo .
The ones you showed in the previous reply. The Grey ones. I was just wondering, but if it's for no other reason than it's paint you know, it's good enough. I'm just asking cuz there're a lot different paints and I'm always interested in knowing why people chose this or that particular paint... I only know humbrol and Tamiya... And I just bought vallejo for figure painting.Which AK ?
I chose all the paints for their color . I'm familiar with the AK Real Color , it's another " lacquer acrylic " , probably similar to Tamiya's , though I've never used Tamiya paints .
Thank you for taking the time to answer...Mission Models has the shaker ball .
I wish that shaker ball was in every paint container out there .
The grey AK - those are new to me , hence the search for their composition and proper thinner .
I really like the AK Real Color , Mission Models and Createx for airbrushing .
Any of the " lacquer acrylics " are superior for AB work IMO .
The Mission Models and Createx use the butoxy ethanol as a solvent .
I still can't find the MSDS for the AK High Compatibility Thinner -- it has methoxy propanol and methyl ether in it per the label so there MUST be one out there . It should be accessible on their website . But nope .
I HATE these paint makers .
If I want info on a Liquitex or Golden or Rustoleum ( they'll answer your phone call and tell you ANYTHING you need to know ) or any other established manufacturer's product , no problem .
These guys like Valllejo , MiG , AK ? - good luck .
