Morning. I was able to pick up a couple of Jordan Model A's at the hobby shop down the street from George's for 4 bucks a pop. Not that I needed them but for 4 bucks..

I’m convinced you must’ve went through a time portal or something…

Good Afternoon. Spent the morning at the F&SM. Small crowd all morning made for good photo taking.


Cool - we love pictures. Did you find George's new addition?

This one?

Seth — I’m so excited you have your Flux Mill kit! I cannot wait to see your results. Please do share when you ready. Funnily enough, I’m based in MN — so from my bench to yours, it hasn’t traveled too far!

Thank you for your kind words, too!

I also only use their brushes -- both sable and synthetic.

For airbrush thinning I use a drop or two of water and a drop or two of flow improver. I mix everything directly in the airbrush cup.

I'm not familiar with the Monument paint.  How does it compare to other acrylic brands?   Do you usually airbrush or paintbrush?

It's a line that I discovered a few years ago and have stuck with because of the generous sized bottles and stellar coverage (high pigment counts for the win!). These are brush paints, so they will need thinning for the airbrush (well, all paints need to be thinned for any application, frankly!)

One thing that I enjoy is the various sets that can be purchased.

Morning all.

Deciding how to spend the day. One thing I know I’ll be doing is blocking out my new diorama.

Greg — thank you for checking out the link (certainly lots more photos there!). Really appreciate your kind words!

John — thank you! That’s very kind. I tend to weather somewhat heavily, so I knew going in I’d have to use some bold colors to cut through. I’m pleased to hear how that’s working for you! I used my paints from Monument Hobbies to paint this diorama. That specific blue can be found here: https://monumenthobbies.com/products/pro-acryl-dark-grey-blue?variant=38070489809069
