  1. I have a Fein Turbo III (purchased 2008) combined with an Onieda Dust Deputy cyclone. As you can see I built a movable cart with the vacuum on the bottom and the Deputy topside. After a while I saw that I could gain more space for storing more "stuff" if I raised the Deputy up another level. I made it more useful to me by being able to store the big table saw sliding table as well as some extra clamp storage. In my mind the cyclone is a must. Over the past 12 years I have used two filter bags in the Fein, everything goes in the cyclone. All my tablesaw, router, jointer, drum sander exhaust go thru the Deputy. Anyways I think the cart with the vaccum and cyclone on top is an efficient combo.
  2. Kurt, The link you still have in your first post links the old document (https://www.thenrg.org/resources/sharpie/nrg-sharpie-monograph.pdf) The new one is https://www.thenrg.org/resources/sharpie/nrg-sharpie-monograph-updated.pdf Bruce
  3. I recently tried a new brand, Mission Models Paint. I was very impressed with the performance using an air brush (Iwata CP-CS). In the past I have used floquil, tamiya, and model master with good results using Paasche and Aztek airbrushes. I tried the Model Expo paints and was not impressed at all. The Mission Models paints are water-based acrylics, non-toxic and odorless. The paints contain high-quality organic pigments with no additives. This results in infinite shelf life as there is no possibility of hardening or separation of pigment and medium in the bottle. The paint bottles (1oz) are sealed and include mixing ball which helps to thoroughly mix the paint before use. The paint is airbrush ready from the bottle, but it could also be thinned with MMP thinner (about 20-30%). Since they are new, they are still bringing colors to the marketplace, so they may not have every color you want at this time. Do an internet search on "mission models paint review" and you can see what others think of this paint. I have no affiliation with MMP, just a happy user wanting to spread the word so other can consider utilizing their product.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
