I have a Scalemates admission to make here...perhaps I should PM Tim so he will be sure to see it!

Seriously, here is what happened...that little model was moved again and again for testing of the backgrounds, eventually fell on the floor and was slightly damaged...then it had little pieces of carpet fuzz all over it....

long story short....i had touched up the model to get rid of some spots on the left side, but never got a decent photo with that fix...so i touched up an earlier series of photos and got rid of the spots.

my only defense is that i am convinced this little guy looked like this at SOME point...maybe just before the big crash on the floor.

there...i feel better...honesty can be refreshing to the soul.

(i'm going to leave that crooked tail wheel there (which disappeared entirely at some point in this back and forth process) as a testament to honesty.)

What a lovely little aircraft and a nicely built model... I like the rigging too, very neat! I do feel your pain as it crashed... good thing there are no signs of the mishap any more. But did the kit really come in that huge box on picture 1? :-o

Thank you folks....those new ICM boxes are little works of art in themselves

Rigging little 1/72 biplanes (this one isn't big...you noticed!) without eyelets was the learning goal...perfection was not achieved but the result showed real promise.

I once voted for Bob Dole to be President of the United States....because we've never had a president named "Bob".

That made the choice in decal scheme easy!

Go Bob!!

Thanks...this one will bring out the smiles for sometime.

When creating a project, the photo says it should be 1440x400 pixels, which is a widescreen landscape cropping, cutting off the top and bottom of a normal photo.

However, sometimes, it works the other way and the project photo comes out full frame.

Does anyone know the secret sauce to always get a full frame photo for a project?

Just a heads up for all you airbrush users out there....

....while you are doing a cleaning, check your packing nut and Teflon seal!

I had two airbrushs giving the same issue...spitting and splattering...one was an older Paasche...the other a brand new Iwata.

BOTH were cured by adjusting the packing nut so there was a slight drag on the needle.

Its easy to do on most brushes.
10. June, 15:24
Treehugger
Not sure what a 'packing nut' is, I have Iwata's with that large self centering nozzle. I do have started to clean the nozzle opening, in addition to the nozzle, which I like to think helped a little. But the biggest gain was probably proper thinning of paint AND equally important, sifting my paint/primer to avoid clogging.

I noticed some time ago, that when I sprayed water, when pushing out only air, tiny droplets of water came out which is not good. Unsure why that happened. If, unclean parts, or badly manufactured parts, or.. maybe I should have given the needle a slight tap with my finger after inserting it into the airbrush (an advice I saw on youtube which I now follow).

Hm, packing nut. I wonder if that could be the tiny screw inside the airbrush (when removing the rear part) that I think tightens the tiny o-ring behind the paint cup where the needles is pulled back into. I haven't been able to adjust that screw to my satisfaction, so I have just left it as is. Ah, it makes sense I guess that this screw isn't too tight, but I don't have any personal experience with such an issue I will admit.
10. June, 15:41
Lochsa_River
that's it, the little nut all the way inside.....it made a world of difference to adjust both the new Iwata and the older Paasche VL....

there is guidance on the web this is a tiny adjustment (think one min intervals of a 60 min clock).

That fits my experiences. I adjusted the little nut a little bit (no more than 5 minutes) until the needle had a clear drag but no more. Lubing the needle a bit after that made for a smooth brush.

Badger apparently wants you to return any brush to them for a free packing adjustment. I don't own any Badgers but would check the play on any brush, period before trying anything else.

Here is a link to a very good tear down and rebuild of a Paasche VL, which goes into some detail about the packing nut and its adjustment.

There is some online advice about the use of Future before decaling that says to wait until the Future can't be smelled anymore...

There is other advice that says 48 hours wait is good.

I ask, because its been 72 hours in a normal humidity environment, and I can still smell Future.

Any thoughts?

At this point, its an experiment to see how many days it takes for the Future smell to go.
30. May, 23:25

48 hrs should be plenty, so long as it's not still tacky to the touch.
You may want to consider buffing it lightly with a soft cloth before applying decals though.
30. May, 23:39
Augie
For me, I'm usually putting decals on within an hour to two hours of future being touchable..
Never given me any issues and I've never given it a "buff" before decals going on.
31. May, 00:12
Lochsa_River
I think the big question is about possible use of aggressive agents such as Solvaset. Just a regular decal would far less toxic to the future base.

I remember Aaron Skinner of FSM saying somewhere that 2 days was the minimum.

For now, the Future smell is about gone and I'm looking forward to seeing how the decals set down.
