Jv, a lot of the Academy kits I build are from the 1990's a good basic kit. Kits to learn on and hone our skills. Tamiya kits have always been better in details and fit, but a little more money. I like to build several of the same kind of aircraft, like one of each P-47 aircraft. That why I can buy two or three Academy kits for one Tamiya kit. I just add the little details I need for each kit. Now Academy's newer kits are much better and getting close to Tamiya.

Yes I seen some nice academy kits and I think prices are pretty much same as tamiya

WhiteGlint, Thanks. I have the nose full of as much weight as it will take. there is just so little space in the nose. I did remove the canopy and the rear deck behind the cockpit and added some weight in the cargo bay and also glued on the landing gear and now the aircraft will now just seat on it gear. The balance is so tight. So now I could build the second kit. I would also rework the build order so I could work on seams better. I will post some photos of landing gear soon.

Last few photos of this project are up today. I will go head and build my second kit. I can use this kit as a test mull for paint and weathering. I learned a good bit on this project that I can us on a new project.

From my experience with that single color your Gloss Metal Varnish seems to be needed, but it looks you are well equipped.
I use Alclad also only with mask and exhaust. Anyway, you should wear a mask during airbrushing even if the paint do not smell. There are clouds of pigments in the air which are not healthy for your lungs.

Bughunter, Thanks. I do wear a mask when I spray and I have a spray booth. I need to do more testing before my first project with metal Colors.

New photos up today. The diorama is now painted and the ramp installed and the sand cover layed down. The Stargate diorama is now done. It was a fun build and the largest diorama I have done so far to date. If I can find some nice people I may add them later.

Mark, Thanks. My project will be based on TV SG.U. The gate is just a lump of Resin. The casting is not great, and the paint job was really bad. So I will repaint the Gate and make a base for it.

John, yes the Grex TG3 is a double action. The TG3 has a 0.3mm needle. You pull back a little at first for air, then more for paint. It's really simple to use and made in America.
