  1. It does look really good. In the past I have tried mixing colors. I am going to try leather next time. Thanks.
  2. I am currently working on this model. Yours came out really good. What did you use for the rigging diagram? Ron W.
  3. Looks good. What color did you use for the "red"? Ron W.
  4. Thanks Ron for the additional info. I take they can be thinned with alcohol or Testor's Acrylic Thinner? I have a few bottles of it. Ron W.
  5. I know this is an old thread but I will give my 2 cents because I use Testor's rattle cans top coats. I have gotten some good results by shaking them for a minute, then place them in warm water for a few minutes, usually 5 or so. Then give them another good shaking. I also use their lacquer cleaner to clean off the nozzle before and after spraying. Ron W.
  6. Thanks Eagle. I use Testor's mostly, so I will stick to the acrylics too. Ron W.
  7. Very informative explanation, but I was just stating that Testor's Dullcote and Glosscote can be used over (I should have said Testor's) enamels and acrylics even though it is lacquer based. I don't know if you can use it over other manufacture's paints. As for the 91% alcohol, I found that out the hard way on enamel paint when I was trying to do some filtering and washes. I used the alcohol to clean and moisten the paint brushes and it did a number on the paint! Ron W.
  8. Has anyone used Testor's washes and stains? I guess they have been out for awhile but I just barely found them. Thanks, Ron W.
  9. I have used Testor's Dullcote and Glosscote, both rattle can and brush, over enamels and haven't had any problems.
  10. I keep a log of type of paint, thinning ratios, pressure used, and how much the needle is open. It helps me keep track of what works and what doesn't. A double action airbrush is more complicated to use, in my opinion, and will require lots of practice just as a single action will. Ron W.
  11. WHAT!!! I am at a loss for words.
  12. Had me scared for a minute there.
  13. Thanks Chris for the info. I think I will give it a shot.
  14. I am looking at Hunter's decks for Bronco's Chih Yuen. Has anyone used any of Hunter's decks? Ron W.
  15. Can I get a close up of the calender? Ron W.
  16. My name is Ronald Wilkinson (Draper, UT affiliated with IPMS SLC and Southern Front) and there might be some confusion on my IPMS number. When I first joined in October of 2010 my IPMS number was 47527, but I have noticed my number is now 47528. Thought I had better find out which number is correct. Thanks, Ron W.
  17. I hope I am not too late, but I would go with the England or Henley and get one of those two finished. Ron W.
  18. Chris, Looks really good. For rigging I like using fly tying thread. You can get it in very small diameters. Dick, the "ropie thingy" for the flag is a halyard, also spelled halliard. Ron W.
  19. Richard, I hope I stopped you in time, but do not buy that Loom A Line to set up shrouds and ratlines. The only proper way to set the shrouds is on the model itself. Ron W.
  20. Looking fantastic. I have one in my "to be built" stash. I might have to move it up front! Ron W.
