About patrick206

I'm Patrick, age 72, living in Oregon, retired commercial pilot. Active modeler since about age 8, mostly scale plastic aircraft, some balsa freeflight. Scale airliners, WWll through current military, helicopters and bush/floatplanes.

Use airbrushes, Paasche V - VL - H and Talon, plus Badger 155. Only enamels, Model Master and Humbrol, like them, but bought several Tamiya acrylics and will try this weekend. Any advice/hints/tips about acrylics for a newbie appreciated.

Mostly 1:72 scale, needs less space and I like the challenge. I never keep them, others like getting them and I enjoy the building. Have a good shop area, bench, spray booth, fan ducted to outside, great lighting which really helps, at my age the eyes are getting a bit tired.

Worldwide travel during career meant dozens of hobby shops to visit, even my very patient wife has to stretch her limits since I still have more than 140 in the stash. How foolish can a grown man be?????

Best to you all.
