Ok Danno, dumb question... but that shot of you spraying the Predator... using a 20/20... I notice that you are spraying very close to your subject.

Is that because of the paint your are using or the type of AB or that is how your are suppose to spray... up close and personnal?

Cool

Awesome tutorial. I know nothing of sculpting, modding, kit building or painting. An this tutorial has taken out some of the fear and apprehension I had in trying it.

Good Job Danno! I will give it a shot.

The closer you are to the piece the finer line you'll get.

Is there a thread that lists all the tools needed for kit building, painting and repairing? A supplies list of sorts.

It would be nice to hear what the best brands/supplies are to outfit the tool box.

Ick is dead on correct, with pressure set to about 8-10 psi and a good detail airbrush (like the Badger Sotar 20/20), I get up close to spray very thin fine detail work. The further away your airbrush, the wider the spray coverage.

Hey Vin,

There have been quite a few threads on paint, air brushes, and compressors...but I don't think anyone has done it on all the other tools of the trade.

But here is a nice little list of some things I like to use:

Princeton Art and Brush Company or Windsor and Newton Series 7 paint brushes

#20/0 Spotter
#10/0 Spotter
#20/0 Liner
#10/0 Liner
#5/0 Filbert
0 Filbert
1 Filbert
2 Filbert
4 Filbert

MicroMark set of Drybrush Brushes

Dremmel or Sears Craftsman Rotary tool

Lasco Diamond for your rotary bits
http://www.lascodiamond.com/
Mainly I recommend:
BD10-2 Diamond cutoff wheel
31P Titanium Bur
(these two bits will do about 90% of your rotary needs)

AVES Apoxie Sculpt for your putty

Windsor and Newton Brush Cleaner

3M Sandblaster sanding sponges (all grits)

Devcon Plastic Welder and 5-Min Epoxy

Great Plains CA CA (Cyanoacrylate) glue and kicker (Cyanoacrylate Accelerator

MicroMark Diamond Mini Files
http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Ares...oduct&ID=82248

No Brands for this stuff, just things you will need:
Steel Wool
Linesman Pliers
needle nose pliers
Vicegrips
Wire Cutter
Putty Knives
Hobby files
Sandpaper
Pinvice
Drill and drillbits
Scribing tool
Hobby Knife

You will use more as you move on, but I think this is the basic list of things to get you rolling. I may have forgotten an item or two, please forgive me...I still have not had my first cup of coffee yet.
