  1. The most versatile pair of tweezer i've ever found I latched onto at the local Big Lots. Apparently one of the tweezer manufacturers tried to market a rubber tipped set of tweezers without much luck. I guess they never considered the hobby market. Tweezer launch is pretty nigh eliminated. nad the don't break anything, but the rubber is substantial enough to hold parts for placement. Best yet that only cost me 99 cents. I bought all they had and gace them to all my geek posse. Kip
  2. Hey Tim, There are a couple of methods. 1. assemble the track in sections and do not attach them to the road wheels. paint then and then attach tothe vehicle and weather. A variation on that is to assemble the complete track run on the road wheels, but don't glue the road wheels together. pull off the outer road wheel/drive sprocket/idler and the complete track run should pop right off. 2. Another way is to leave off the upper hull and paint the lower hull first. generally speaking the fenders are attached ot the upper hull and won't interfere if you keep them seperate. Ho
  3. Hmmm.... interesting. Been using Testors acrylic flat for years and never noticed any hint of color shift except that which comes from a shiny color being turned into a flat color. Which isn't really a shift. Oh well, to each his own I guess. Seems like a lot of trouble.
  4. Go to the Testor/Aztek website and send them an email describing your problem. My expereince has always been they will provide instructions on either fixing or replacing the brush. My expereinces with them have always been very good. They are fast, polite and don't try to nickel and dime you to death. They have repaired several airbrushes for me. In each instance, the damage was caused by user misuse - not necessarily mine. I have never had many problems with the Aztel airbrushes. When cared for properly they have provided years of good solid use. I did send one back after I used Testors
  5. Pardon my ignorance, but of what use would flat Future be? I cannot for the life me recall any instance in which the gloss finish of Future was considered a detriment. If a flat finish is needed, then a flat coat generally suffices.... I don't get it. Kip
