Re: Stipping

As a word of caution, the fumes have anaesthetic properties and are linked to various respiratory complications, so worth keeping whatever you put the stripper in covered and in a well ventilated area. Cheers, Andy That is very well worth mentioning, thanks Andy. A sealed container, stored in the s...

Re: Stipping

Methylated spirits is even cheaper but well smelly.

With the IA make sure to get undiluted 99.9% as per the video. Several layers of enamel may need two or three doings, but the stuff is re-usable.

That is a great shade of green there. Any chance of naming the paint behind it all?
Sorry, no. Painted many, many years ago (12+) and my memory fails me. I think I may still have been using Humbrol enamels. I'll think on it and if anything springs to mind I'll add it here.

Re: Airfix rereleases "Vintage Classics" for limited time only

But aren't some of these kits, well, a bit old? Why would anyone torture themselves with the Airfix Churchill? Coz it’s fun.... :D Absolutely.

Re: On to the next project

This is going to be worth watching. Inspired by your productivity. As an alternative to Dettol, Isoproprl Alcohol has a couple of advantages and is in fact the ingredient that makes Dettol work. It is cheaper, faster and you don't get the gooey sticky gel that you do with Dettol. Washing the dissolv...

Re: Russian 50mm mortar team in 20mm?

The only ones that immediately come to mind are the metal ones from FAA. Unfortunately they come in a pack with other figures, and whilst nice figures, being 20+ years old are not up to AB standards https://www.faaminiatures.com/p-278-sov-platoon-command-with-50mm-mortar.aspx https://www.faaminiatur...
