@SCM Feature Requests,
I've noticed that there is a bug in the paint stash manager
Steps to recreate:
Add a paint to your stash twice
go back and remove one of those paints from your stash using the delete option
Go to the page for that paint
in the stash manager section of the page, you will see one item in your stash, and another line entry with no information that cannot be removed
Repeat above steps and it will add more blank line entries

Spanjaard nice. i specially like the idea for the paint jars, i got something in mind for my space..... :)
what did you use for the bottles?
23. September 2019 at 22:05:28
Chaz Gordon I got one of these: "TTCombat-MPRCIT60-Citadel-MEGA-Paint-Rack-60-GW-Tamiya-size" on Fleabay, it's got pre cut holes for twice the jars it's designed for as it also has precut holes to hold the base of the jar. I cut the included MDF panels up to splice them together for an exact fit, then using some 1/4 ply for the long sides and back, glued the whole lot together with gorilla glue and then painted.

The paint is all 10ml Tamiya Jars, but I have over 200 23ml jars of Tamiya paint that's still good from a Job lot I bought 20 years ago, so I bought a bunch of empty 10ml Jars and decant the in-use paint from the Bulk Stock, filling in missing colours with new 10mls from the LHS.

I just came up short of being able to put the full Tamiya range in the organiser, the Flat Base and the Clears are stored in the top of one of the mini tool chests.

First world problem, I've since discovered Vallejo Model Air, and am steadily trying to use up the Tamiya. Should take me about 20 years!

Treehugger When I moved recently I took the opportunity to get rid off all the stuff I didn't need, so I delivered a bag of enamel paints to the toxic waste disposal area at my local garbage sorting fascility. Being a novice with an airbrush, I feel ok using acrylig paint in the airbrush, and I will probably never know what it would be to just use enamel paints in the airbrush. :)

Thought I'd got a real bargain today, molotow chrome pens 40% off!. so i bought 3. Then later i saw on Amazon a set of 3 for 3 pounds less, delivered! On the upside, i finally found Future in Walmart, so I bought 4 bottles @ $6.18 each.

At least i got a few bonuses on this trip, mpc 1/16 mk2 firebird for half the UK price, a couple of cheapish pickup truck kits and I found some awesome kits in ny storage unit that id forgotten i had, or have been looking for for a long time. 1/48 hasegawa Phantom, AMT Enterprise D, Kazon Ship, Revell Kenworth Aerodyne, Mpc Vader Tie fighter

Bill Newcomer I am jealous. My builds from my teens I wish I still had. When my Brady Bunch family broke up, they got sent to the dumpster. I had built about 6-7 trucks with trailers by that point.
15. October 2019 at 07:31:10
Chaz Gordon I had Four main kits that I needed to replace that disappeared somewhere among a half dozen house moves. I managed to buy all four this year. Unfortunately, three of them were Tamiya 1/12 cars, and one Revell 1/12. But now I have the pleasure of building them to my new capabilities and significantly higher patience level.
15. October 2019 at 15:32:30
Bozzer I'm keeping an eye on this too. I wish I still had my old trucks, from when I was a kid. Luckily, I can still get most of them. Problem is now, I can afford the trailers too! So I'll hang on the side and stick around for the ride, 10-4!
16. October 2019 at 02:42:02
Danny Meer Very cool that you still have them, will follow your quest :)
16. October 2019 at 11:35:02
Tim Heimer Bozzer I can totally agree!
16. October 2019 at 14:33:10
Chaz Gordon Don't hold your collective breath, these are going to take some time. I have obtained complete untouched kits of each of the revell kits (or close enough) that I will be building alongside. The plan is to correct some of the kit's issues along the way, such as the hood hinges on the Petes, which don't open properly and the lack of limits or supports on the Kenworth Cabs, and it's going to be my first venture into alclad chrome too.

If I find I need to fabricate a part to fix an issue or replace missing parts, I will also be making my first forays into resin moulding. I really want to try and build something unusual from a couple of them, I have 4 standard Peterbilts, so I am planning to create a resin chassis for the triple axle version and the additional axles using some spare parts I have, mixed with some resin parts from the originals (ie extra suspension, wheels etc.

I also have in the loft the remains of the Revell car transporter trailer, which I believe I can convert and use as patterns to build a complete Cottrell transporter to take up to 11 cars.

In the stash is the rest of the Italieri Scania Wrecker that the wrecker body came from that will be reunited, the Scania Roadrunner tractor, The Revell Peterbilt fire truck (good extra spares source) 3 Revell K-100 Aerodynes, and 2 Revell Peterbilt 359s

Along the way, I am planning some ambitious stuff:

Alclad Candy over chrome
Alclad Candy over silver
Home made Resin parts
Silicone Tyres (The Late Revell Kenworths have perfect tyres, I want to try and make copies for all the fleet)
Custom printed Decals
Some LED lighting
Engine Detail up
Interior Detail up
Taking stuff apart and putting it back together
Fixing those busted axles
Chrome the original kit lacked (Lights, air stacks etc)
some scenery to display them on

It's going to take a while
16. October 2019 at 16:14:21
Bozzer Awesome news! I can tell you that its possible to spray Molotow chrome, which in my opinion, is the best chrome I've ever seen. However, I have noticed that it dulls, when you spray clear on top. But, a recent post on a group I'm in, suggested using a different clear for the chrome, because they had excellent results! So my friend, I suggest you experiment with that. Any help you require regarding LED lights, give me a shout. I'm more than happy to share a few tips. I applaud you on taking on this quest, you've got balls buddy. Best of luck.
16. October 2019 at 18:01:36
Tim Heimer This might help some https://auslowe.com.au/ I have bought many things from here and ebay. I have the set ups for about 8 rigs with custom cases, a forklift and a VW micro bus, plus aftermarket parts for most of the set ups with plans to light up a car carrier and a cop car. I know how the imagination just takes off with the stuff! I'll be watching I'm sure to see where yours takes you!
16. October 2019 at 20:46:43
Bill Newcomer I support your endeavor. I am also willing to advise you on LEDs and custom decals. I also recommend Auslowe parts. I just got an order not too long ago of a bunch of detail parts.

Just received one of these, set up in under 5 minutes first time without even opening the instructions, nicely made and clever design. Airflow through the front is gentle and won't disturb the paint flow, through the outlet, it's very high volume. It's not too noisey, actually just a bit louder than my mini compressor. Indoor airbrushing is now on the cards.

Olivier Cold is still far better than inhaling the fumes, hum, sorry, the paint.
24. September 2019 at 20:29:54
Łukasz Gliński This one is pretty useful, I have the same looking thing for over a year now and even can spraying is not an issue anymore. Just remember to clean the filter on a regular basis.
24. September 2019 at 21:02:42
Chaz Gordon Tried it out for the first time today. The lights are very good, but unfortunately make it difficult to see the vertical side facing outward, so it is difficult to determine the liquidity of the paint applied on vertical surfaces. No big deal for Matt finishes, but tricky for Gloss. Will need to add a strong light over my shoulder to cover this.

Otherwise, the extraction is superb. I note the filter doesn't catch all of the paint, as there was some residue on the fan outlet when I packed it up, but the hose didn't seem to have much in it, so hopefully there is nothing on the outside of the window frame.

Struggled a bit with getting the location of the paint stand right when painting the vertical surfaces, airline kept bumping into the front edge, stopping me getting the brush at 90º, but a swivel connector might take care of that.

It's a learning curve for sure, I'm far more used to spraying full size cars. Comparatively speaking, the size of an airbrush on a 1/24 model, against the size of a siphon gun on the real thing, is more like painting a car with a pressure washer.
6. October 2019 at 22:02:47
Bill Newcomer Thanks for the review. I need a paint booth that stores compactly and does not let fumes into the house. (Wife complains). I no longer have Summer weather to paint outdoors or even in the garage.
15. October 2019 at 07:42:01
Bryn Crandell Nice little extractor. Definately worth the money.
15. October 2019 at 12:10:54
Chaz Gordon One small learning curve, it will draw the contents of the air in the room over your finished piece if left on, also in cooler weather it moves a lot of cool air through. So I have learned to turn off the power once I have finished painting, it made a big difference to the finish on the laquer on my recent test pieces
15. October 2019 at 15:39:47
Rob I replaced the supplied hose with a much longer one of the same type purchased as an 'irrigation drainage' pipe at my local hardware store. It now reaches off the desk, across the room and out the door, fitting into the supplied connections the same way the original did. I use it for everything now (except Mr Surfacer as it tends to block the filter too quickly). Replacement filters are available from my LHS, too.
16. October 2019 at 03:47:23
Chaz Gordon Just got a bargain, where I work, we were clearing out stores and a 10 foot hose was being thrown away - Freebie!!
