thanks for the reminder........... I need to sign up for body tanning classes, hee hee.


All kidding aside, I have not heard of this brand. Nowhere on their site do they have specs as to how fine a spray you can get and so on. I use Iwata airbrushes and compressor - very pleased with their products. I would like to see a Stratus airbrush in person. If only they had some kind of retail outlet or a list of places that carry their product.

Judging by the pics, the brushes are gravity feed and most likely dual action trigger.

Zokei Mura is taking pre orders for the 1/32 scale model of the German Do335 A-O Pfeil.

Damn, push/pull design. Those Germans, eh?

Check out the rest of their lineup. My favourite is the Shinden Canard design plane, where the props are in the rear of the plane.

Their P51 Mustang is just nuts. Quality all around.

I have both the 1/32 and 1/48 versions, AND the goofy Anime version called, "Ah My Goddess." At the time, the first production of the plane sold out within a month. They later came out with the goofy one, but it had all the same parts as the original. Then they came out with the 1/48 version. Got that as soon as it was announced. Then, recently, they did a second run of the original. None of the kits have been built yet.

I still have three battleships, three carriers, and five heavy cruisers in 1/350 scale, eight 1/32 scale planes and a dozen or so 1/35 scale German WWII armour still waiting to be built. There's not enough hours in a day, days in a year, years in a lifetime, lol.


Oh, forgot the Star Trek models........... LED light kits planned for all.

Does anyone where I can find "Tamiya Panel Line Accent Color", in Richmond or Vancouver?

I haven't gone to a hobby shop for a long time, and ones I know in Richmond aren't at the place I used to remember them by, and I don't know their names either.

This is for doing the panel lines for a Gundam by the way. Thanks.

Another offering from Zoukei-Mura of Japan.

VOLKS Scale Models :: Blue Knight Series

Did not know this until a couple of months ago. Burnaby Hobbies on Rumble, near Royal Oak is a retail partner of Zoukei-Mura. So you can get their stuff locally. Sort of, as they don't carry all of the models. Last I heard, you could order through them, though.

Also, Imperial Hobbies is having their Anniversary Sale is on the 19th, 20th, and 21st of August.

I'm assuming it's the usual 25% off everything in the store, sale.

Going to stock up on top loaders and sleeves, not for a card collection, but for my stamps.

BTW, Canadian Tire had a 50% off sale on their dust and waterproof cases last week and I got the medium one on Thursday. Not only great for storing tools, but also for collectors and hobbyists.

The sale is over now, but they go on sale often enough.

i am hoping someone can help me here.

i have this person who has a damaged APM resin model. the windshield had popped out and the owner tried to fix it on his own but as you can see there is glue residue that has crazed the mylar sheet windshield:



is there any way of saving this?

Search for "polishing mylar". Not sure if your buddy is willing to take the chance. I'm assuming individual parts cannot be ordered like you can with plastic model kits (Tamiya, Hasegawa, etc.).

Imperial Hobbies 30th Anniversary/Customer Appreciation Sale is tomorrow. I went today to scout out what's there. I've got it all planned out.

Doors open at 11:00 pm and the event is over three days. 25% off almost everything in the store and lots of clear out items.

The new place is huge!

I miss the old place, but they had no choice. It had character, for sure.

As for the inventory, way more variety. I guess their miniature selection increased by a fair bit. I noticed a few Tamiya paint colours missing. I always stock up on Tamiya Fine Primer during the sale events, but they did not have the white. Lots of grey, light grey, pink, and rust.

If you haven't been to the new place, the three day sale is the perfect excuse to go.

anyone have a flyer/scan of the event? is there an extra discount off of their sale items?

more specifically, i'm wondering about if they apply to their sale boardgames.

Just left. Only spent $160. Texting from their parking lot, lol. Free doughnuts, pop, chips, give aways. I showed up at 9:15 and was second in line. Pulled out the lawn chair and waited. By opening, the line up went around side of building. There was an Iwata Eclipse airbrush on sale for pretty close to half price. I would have snatched it up, but I have that model and two other entry level Iwata's. I'm going back to buy more Tamiya paints after I take inventory of what I have at home. Damn, they have a large Gundam selection. Way more than they had at the old store. So many people into miniatures.

Nope. Lots of shit left. The store is huge, man. They probably have more shit out back. If you're into comics, figures and shit it's a must see place.

Thumper, quit messin' around and just go. You can bypass shitty Richmond drivers. It's on Grant Whatshisname Way.

I went last night at closing and bought a clearance priced Ferrari 355 Challenge Fujimi kit... couple shades of Testor's metallics for airbrush spraying and some MTG boosters of the new set... lots of people in there, dude in front of me must have bought 30 packs of $2.00 miniature soldiers amongst other stuff... $350 total and apparently it was his 2nd and much smaller haul of the day... lol...

Hey MG1, what compressor do you use for your airbrushing?
