Giottos Super Rocket Air

Recommended Posts

Ahoy Mates :D


I have been using these for years in my hobbies and professional endeavors. They are much cheaper then canned air, provide plenty of easy to control pressure and zero residue. Although it will not provide you with a 30 second continuous burst; a few quick puffs is generally enough to clean parts, smaller work areas, or remove dust on sections prior to stain or paint. I do own a compressor, which for me is where I turn for more air; although I have yet to use this for shipbuilding. The globe is all I have ever needed. I use it daily :P


Mine is Super Rocket and can be seen in some of the pics in my log. I own a few of them

If you haven't done so, put a link to your post in the discussion about "Cleaning your ship" in the General Discussion.   Interesting looking tool.

I have tried hand held vacuums but have now settled on a full power vacuum. Because of the extra 'suck' you can afford to hold the nozzle a little way of the ship to avoid catching delicate items. So i hold the nozzle and with the other hand use a soft bristle paint brush to loosed/move the dust The vaccum then does a pretty good job of snatching away the airborne particles.
