Speckly texture when airbrushing

I'm not a life-long expert with the airbrush. I've built only about a half dozen AFV models but I've noticed something that is starting to get on my nerves.

When ever I spray normal non-glossy...

I've been looking over your Panzer II/F. I think maybe the fenders requires a bit more ambition (and skill) than I'm capable of mustering, but I do like the barrel upgrades. I may go with the Aber...

Well, I did order some from this ship modeling place, but I still haven't received it. Their website said "Waiting to Ship", so I emailed them asking when it would ship and first line in his reply...

Thanks for the videos, Armor Fiend. I never thought to look on youtube, although I've scouted them for other how-to stuff. That guy in the first one sure makes it look easy. I was thinking you had...

Thanks, Alan. I will experiment this weekend and see how hard it is. I'll probably use a candle since that's about the only thing I have that generates an open flame.

Thanks for the pix, Steve. Very nice work. I noticed that most people iuse a different color plastic when doing welds. My guess is that it's probably easier to see and control the shaping if the...

Looking through the vBench stuff, I see that stretched sprue is used as a basis to simulate welds (at least by James Tainton and presumably others). I understand the slicing and melting it with...

I was just working with some of the PE chain that came with the DML Vorpanzer kit I'm working on. Maybe I've been selling the PE chain short. It actually can be made to look quit a bit more...

I definitely like stuff like vBench, but I haven't explored many other sites besides this one for "build logs". I have read a number of the PMMS reviews, but nothing that really qualifies as a build...

Nice work. Thanks for posting the pictures. There can never be too many pictures on a modeling site. :)

I do look at what other people say about a kit as long as I can find it in a web search. ...

This looks excellent!

I see there is brass and copper, but what is the silver metal used for the deck? Aluminum?

I'll have to try that. If there's anything I have plenty of access to it's different sizes of wire. Thanks for the suggestion.

Miniature chain

I was wondering if you guys ever buy miniature chain to use on your models instead of PE chain. PE is great stuff, but I don't think the PE chain looks that good.

I used to do scratch built model...

I definitely like the individual link tracks. The Dragon Sherman and Academy M3 Lee kits that I built had one-piece tracks. They were actually not bad, but I think the link tracks are much easier...

I don't have a stock of copper in my shop, so I kinda like the idea of using pop cans. Seems like it would be hard to reliably glue aluminum, though. What works best on that? Expoxy? CA?
