  2. I just started airbrushing to I use Tamiya acrylics. I thin it 2 parts paint to 1 part thinner, but I always put the thinner in the airbrush first and that seems to work for me. I don't prime but the I don't think it would show through. sorry I can't be any more help.
  3. Please help! What to buy.

    Thank you guys for all your suggestions. It helped alot. That video was great. So this piece that I planed on soldering seems like a nightmare. 4 joints close together. Maybe I should use CA glue?
  4. I have to solder brass masts and PE for a1/200 Bismarck. I'm having a real hard time deciding which solder, flux, iron/torch to buy. Solder: there is silver bearing, lead free, 60/40 leaded, 50/50 leaded. Then theres rosin core or flux infused into the solder... it so confusing people have said dont get silver, the melting temp is to high others say get silver its stronger. I have no idea what to get. Flux: acid based, water soluable, rosin flux, paste, liquid. Again i have no clue what to get. Torch or iron? This is very fustrating I just wish some one would say here buy this and tell me exactly wat to buy. Would this be ok to buy? https://www.micromark.com/Stay-Brite-Silver-Solder
  5. I was just wondering if they were sister ships or identical.

    what a beautiful model! is the upper hull, deck planking and masts made with boxwood? or is that the kits wood?
