Hello from PDX
Posted by Whitecloud100 on Monday, November 18, 2019 12:58 PM

Getting back into the hobby after a good 30 years. In my late 20's I would say my skill level was fairly high so I'm not a complete beginner. It's taken me a good year to aquire the tools and supplies to complete my fist build, AMT 1:650 Star Trek USS Enterprise 50th Anniversary AMT#947 (I tried to insert photos, but couldn't get it to work, help...).

Now I'm going to dive into a kit that I've held onto for some 25 years, Revell 1:32 F15E Strike Eagle. This sucker is HUGE. But before I can get to far I have to buy an airbrush system. I'll take any tips on beginner airbrushes (never owned one). I also want to incorrporate PE parts, at least in the cockpit, because this kit is so large (never done those, tips...).

So here's a question, will EUARD PE parts that are recommended for the TAMIYA kit work on my REVELL kit?

And another. This is my first time using a forum like this, so say I want to ask a general techniques question. How would I go about that?

I look forward to being in the community and sharing tips and tricks,


C.A. Whitecloud

Welcome aboard.

To your first question, the PE parts will likely fit but will probably need some re-working, on the PE or the plastic. And the PE instructions won't mathc the kit.

There are many different sections to the forum, just look through and you will work out where best to put your question. But if its specific to lets say aircraft, you can out it in there.

Welcome from down by Albany.


As to airbrush, search for Don's airbrush tips.  He has a lot of information there.
