RE: Spray paint or brush paint?

Does the airbrush just attach to the paint tin and mix a paint thinner with the enamel to create a low density liquid which is the ultimate spray paint going onto the aircraft?

Creating authentic joining lines

May I ask if it is possible to create authentic joining lines on a model aircraft surface? To explain to a further degree, I am referring to the vivid lines seen on prototype aircraft, where (for...

RE: Getting a smooth surface with fibreglass

Purely out of interest, may I ask which fibreglass is generally stronger - fine weave or course weave? Personally I would have thought the latter was the stronger (myself having used it on several...

RE: Getting a smooth surface with fibreglass

It is fine for those who are using the mysterious 'Z-Poxy Finishing Resin', but for those of us who are not, it does not help. Furthermore, there is absolutely no way the instructions are substantial...

RE: Getting a smooth surface with fibreglass

Thank you for your replies. They are most useful. I will probably apply a standard paste, regardless of the time it will take.

RE: Using fibreglass

That is a sound idea. I have a plastic 'squeegee' which accompanies some car filler in my garage. As you have made clear, it will make life easier.

I am interested in the application method you...

RE: Using fibreglass

The ratio you have quoted certainly seems familiar; for every 5 units of resin, add 1 unit of hardener.

I think I may have made life slightly easier by paneling the aircraft frame with balsa...

RE: Using fibreglass

Thank you for the advice.
