Re: Airbrush

???? '' people who are disparaging'' I really like my AS186, a really useful compressor. I was simply saying that you see them advertised a lot, because they are so popular. If you have plenty of space to store it when not in use, then that's nice for you. I was just showing a useful and convenient ...

Re: Airbrush

Having only used it so far to paint a 1/35 Russian lorry kit, my first impressions are quite good. Using Vallejo Model Air acrylic, I can spray down to a 1mm line width with it, and noise wise, I would say quieter than an electric tooth brush. As far as awkward goes, I'm only really holding the brus...

Re: Airbrush

My brush cost me £40, but prices seem to vary from day to day. I see them from £32 to £50 on Amazon where I bought this one. Having a quick look at YouTube shows them being used in nail bars and hairdressers with hair dye, so I suppose they have many uses.

Re: Airbrush

Hi Rob, The lower black part is the compressor, onto which the air brush is attached. It is rechargeable and will power the air brush for about 40 minutes, a USB lead is supplied with it. Once you switch it on, there is an air bleed, so no need to worry about it over pressurising. This is all metal ...

Airbrush

A new discovery for me anyway. While browsing Amazon I saw that there seems to be quite a few cordless airbrushes doing the rounds, and liked the idea of being able to do a few quick paint touch ups, without having to get out all my usual spraying equipment. So I treated myself to one of these (see ...

Re: Laser cut building kit from BRM March 2019

Looking at a youtube video of one being built, the parts mentioned don't seem to be used in this kit. It's on a plastic sprue, and I guess it's a generic one for use on alternative buildings in the range.

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Just had a look at Amazon, looks like Axminster has this (Co series) in stock. You could give them call re the C1.?

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

At the end of the day, a small lathe for accurate metal work is not going to be cheap. But something like this (see link) is probably the type you may be looking for. :- https://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-model-engineer-series-c2-300-mini-lathe-101356 Small, model making lathes like the Unimat ju...

Re: N Gauge Points - standard or long

Probably a more useful reply for consideration, here is a comment from another member in reference to OO points, but should be relevant in N gauge as well. :- Mountain said :- At the end of the day, like the prototype, you can only use what fits in the location you have available, so if you only hav...
