Notable tools I use

Tools

  • Tamiya 123 side cutters remove parts from sprues really neatly and easily.
  • Sprue Goo (excess sprue dissolved in Tamiya Extra Thin glue) has been a revelation.  It is by far the easiest filler to work with and scribes just like plastic, because it is.

Airbrush

  • Gunze PS-770 0.18 airbrush.  This has allowed me so much more control when spraying small details and patterns.  Definitely worth the money.

Paints

  • MR Paint.  I love this stuff, it’s what I always imagined airbrushing would be like.  It sprays small patterns well, layers nicely to make interesting colour effects, and dries really fast.
  • Kcolors metallics.  Normally foolproof ease of use trumps everything for me, but these look so good that I’m willing to put up with the less than simple requirements.
