Good point! It never came to my mind it could be the container creating the problem...

those revell cubes really suck!

Greta idea - Is there any particular difference between the glass and the stainless agitators
14. March, 09:56
Wim van der Luijt
I could get my hands on glass easily, it's inert and that seemed important to me. I would be concerned about grease residu on stainless (from the machining) so I went with glass

If using stainless ball instead of glass one You can use a magnet to keep ball from falling down to allow paint flooding when filling airbrush. And, in addition, You can use strong and small magnets to made some kind of stand for bottles - magnets will attract metallic balls and keep bottles stable in place.

Chris Greathouse, the stainless steel balls won't rust. I use 6mm bearing balls ordered from Aliexpress, 100 balls for €1,75, for several years now. But what Wim stated, clean/degrease your balls first. No pun intended :)

I think having mixed paint in separate bottles is a good idea, if you need to spray a lot of paint. Otherwise I think a 10ml glass jar is ok. After mixing my paint in my 10ml jar and pouring the contents into my airbrush, I quickly clean the jar and wipe it dry. I also like filling the jater with water to dry remove any fibers that maybe came from the tissue paper I used to wipe the mixing jar dry. Then I place the mixing jar, upside down on the table.

I use a tea sift, to try catch flakes of paint off Vallejo primer and paint bottles, there clearly are flakes coming off the primer bottles. I then quickly try clean the most of the paint in the sift with semi-lint free tissue paper (but has loose fibers), and then I place the sift into a container of water, so I don't have to pause my work to fully clean the sift, I can do that later.

Once you notice that your regular loose Vallejo paint bottle aren't flowing when you press the bottle holding it downwards, be careful and avoid pressing too hard, ELSE, you risk the loose top nozzle popping out and paint pouring out. :D

I have both stainless steel balls, and glass spheres. I initially bought a big bag of glass spheres, and I am very happy with that. I only boght the metal ones later on to try them out. :)

@Valters Orlovskis: Not all stainless is magnetic :D so your mileage may vary

I love these things.

Wim van der Luijt
Yeah, much easier than painting and masking for small parts

And it's a brighter, more reflective effect at least than the vallejo acrylics I have been using for NMF

Well...the decals are a bit of let down....but I'm close to finishing this one, just need to fix the small bits and pieces and the prop....

Still looks good Wim. The colours you chose also look very good on your Java defender. Sorry about the decals, luckily enough I don't have a big stash of them!

After I long break I am finally about to finish the Bufallo. Only a few small items to add

added an antenna wire (UschiVDR), this stuff is ultra thin and stretchy...the result doesn't exactly make me proud, but it's question of practice I guess
3. March, 18:17
Thomas Bischoff
Looks 10 times better with the antenna!
And I definitely love the look of your buffalo
3. March, 18:34
Ben M
You did the wire! Fantastic!
3. March, 19:29
Wim van der Luijt
You convinced me that it would look better....and it does, thanks!
3. March, 20:46
Ben M
Now I need to add that second little wire to mine... I was also thinking of adding marker lights.

nice one Wim.
Wel een aardige klus als je de oude hawk kit gebruikt

Groetjes Rob

Dat denk ik ook...voorlopig nog even stallen als idee.

Hopelijk gooit de UPS man hem vandaag af....dan ga ik maar voorzichtig beginnen, durf nu niet meer te weigeren :D @Rob: er is toch niks anders dan Hawk/Testors in 1:48?

Hoi Wim klopt Hawk is de enige die hem heeft. Lone star models heeft wel wat resin onderdeeltjes voor dezekit maar dan heb j e het ook wel gehad voor de rest i s er niets

Bedankt voor de tip. Ik zat me al af te vragen wat ik qua cockpit zou moeten doen.

Do it! I just finished mine, and I love it. It is a simple kit, the parts don't fit well, but because there's not a lot of parts, that's OK.

It will be some time before I start this one.....your build looks good!
