  1. I finished the Tamiya Sherman Easy8 and am very impressed with Vallejo acrylics. I only used the Thinner and am very satisfied with the results. For the primer I mixed 2 drops thinner and one drop Liquitex with 10 drops of the surface primer. It went on smoothly and has good adhesion. I also added 2 drops of thinner to the Vallejo air paints and sprayed between 10 -15 psi. Thanks again for all of the comments above.
  2. My thanks to all who replied. The information is very helpful. Happy Modeling. Gary
  3. Vallejo also has a Drying Retarder. "To delay drying time of Model Color, mix a few drops with the color, or dip brush into retarder on the palette. Colors will not change their consistency. Useful for “wet on wet” techniques and reducing skin formation on the palette." 70.597 Bottle 17 ml. and 73.597 Bottle 60 ml. Airbrush Thinner: "Thinner for Model Air and Liquid Acrylic. Thinner used to extend the colors, to increase fluidity and delay the drying time. We recommend the addition of a few drops of thinner to the colors while airbrushing." 71.261: Bottle de 17 ml. and 71.061: Bottle de 32 ml. Airbrush Flow Improver: "Medium designed to improve the flow and delay the drying of paint on the needle while airbrushing. It is recommended to add 1-2 drops of Flow Improver to 10 drops of paint in the cup of the airbrush." 71.262: Bottle de 17 ml. and 71.362: Bottle de 32 ml. Very confusing; I think Vallejo is just trying to increase their revenue so I'm just going to use the Thinner.
  4. What is the difference between Vallejo Thinner and Airbrush Flow Improver? This will be my first time using Vallejo Surface Primer and Air Colors. Do I really need both? I use a Grex airbrush. Any advice/information is appreciated. Happy Modeling.

    Dragon Magic Track

    Thank you for the info Bryan; between the two replies, I have developed a plan of attack for the tracks. I'm building a Dragon Stug G; Dec 1943 production. Between the tracks and all of the extremely small photo-etched pieces and parts, it's a challenge but I'm taking my time and hopefully will have something to be proud of when I'm finished. Thanks again, GLH

    What is the best way to assemble, paint and install Magic Track? Working on a Dragon Stug III and this is my first time with M/T. Thanks for any suggestions, hints, dos and don'ts.
  9. Just a quick 'hello' to say I'm looking forward to being a part of IPMS. I'm retired and just got back into building plastic models and am probably an novice+ or intermediate- builder. I prefer WWII 1/48 aircraft and 1/35 armor. I'm especially interested in tips and tricks to help in the construction process. Thanks!
