  1. This seller has it for 699!!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Badger-Air-Brush-Co-Sotar-2020-2F-Large-Gravity-Feed-Airbrush-with-Fine-Head-/361215666022?hash=item541a21a766
  2. I have used charcoal. I use my x-axto blade and scrape off some dust. I put it on with a stiff brush. A little goes a long way.
  3. I've always had sone fear in the back of my head when it came to preshading. Now, I'm gonna try it out on an old model plane.
  4. Cesar, I watched a few youtube videos on how to make one. My box is 4X4X4, it's made from some scrap wood I had around the house and I used a metal plate that I drilled holes into. I connect the vacuum cleaner from the side. As far as detail goes, it all depends on the detail of the "buck" For obvious reasons, you can't vacuum form intricate details, or cavities where the suction can't reach.
  5. I've made a vacuum forming machine at home for small clear parts. Easier than molding and casting. I've even used plastic packaging, like from flash lights, to make parts.
  6. I have the 1/72 scale Hasegawa kits, I was looking for something smaller and easier to put together for my nephew. He started on the old Arii 1/100 kits already.
  7. Just wondering if a 1/100 scale kit of the macross zero fighters were ever produced.
  8. any updates on this build?
  9. It'll take up a lot of counter space. Looking good so far.keep the updates coming.
  10. Interesring, nothe sure how it would come out on a valk
  11. 1/72 for me since I have no room for anything bigger.
  12. I can't download the files, too old and no longer available I guess. Would love to read em if possible.
  13. Great. It answered some questions I had. Thanks.
  14. Hey y'all, I am looking for images, or links to them that show personal weapons in the macross saga. I know Max had a laser rifle in the episode where they escape capture. Any help is appreciated.
  15. Looking good so far. Slow builds or fast builds, it's still faster than my builds.
  16. Why did you regret using a laser printer? If it's cuz the ink is rubbing off? It actually looks weathered.
  17. Just looking at the kits available back then, these were not so bad. Obviously comparing them to today's kits, well, it's like comparing a 300 horse power supercar to the 600+ cars of today.
  18. Cool. well, not bad considering I didn't want to go.
  19. So what happens when your wife (G.F. / S.O. / soulmate) drags you off yard sale hunting? You visit a place that looks like a junk yard. You make the best of it and carefully peak at the stuff around you. Some random box stuck in a shed full of bird crap so thick it's like mud. But, a quick look inside the box had me stepping in there. I found this inside! The cover is rough, the poster has tape on the corners, but the book is complete for the most part. Doesn't have the film strip. I paid a whopping $5.00! Any idea of what it's worth? I will post more pics tomorrow during the day.
  20. I agree. Purchase a few and mod them.
