    It's the g233. Came with .03, .05 and .02 needles and such and a quick release fitting. Most of what I read in the negative reviews were brand loyalists and people that didn't clean them.

    Re: Cleverfrog's Build(s) Thread

    Ah, okay. I was thinking of getting that one when I first considered moving to airbrushing, but I opted for a G44 instead. I still have a pair of them sitting around as emergency ABs.

    OOoooo that one has an air pressure adjuster close to the tip. It's a bit more though. How do you like it? What is your main brush now?

    Honestly, the air pressure adjuster didn't work that well on it since it involved too much guess work. I relied on the compressor's pressure regulator instead, haha.

    I thought it was a great airbrush to start on. Worked well, reliable, pretty easy to clean, handled all of the experimenting I did, and all of the paint work I did. The nozzle was easy to damage, though, and the needle seal could be a whole lot better. Luckily, parts are pretty cheap and easy to come by. I'm using an Iwata HP-CS now as my main colors AB with a pair Badger Patriot 105's for clear/flat/primer and metallics. I moved to them after finding out they're even easier to clean.

    If you find that you enjoy airbrushing, look into getting a second or third AB for different paint types. Makes cleaning them less of a chore.

    Oh I have a master AB be careful when cleaning the nozzle. It is very fragile I already broke mine before after just getting it. You can see the photos on my wip thread. But glad you jumped on the AB man! Lemme tell ya. It's an addicting experience...well at least for me.

    Re: Cleverfrog's Build(s) Thread

    After a little testing on some spoons I decided to paint the white shield pieces red then laid them on the main part. I think with a little bit of weathering it will turn out exactly how I wanted it Also, stopped at radioshack and picked up some aligator clips and used some shishkabob skewers to make my painting sticks The parts look more red than the pictures let on. Really don't know why they look pink :/

    It's actually a scene from Top Gear UK. I happened to be watching or rather listening to it will taking pictures.

    Well I've got my base colors applied now. Perhaps I should accent

    Re: Cleverfrog's Build(s) Thread

    I think some accents would enhance your paint job really well. Perhaps a lighter color like off-white or a light grey?

    I'm just not too sure where I want to accent yet.

    Re: Cleverfrog's Build(s) Thread

    I think that Dlinker is right, some accents with various greys or even some metallics would really bring out the color scheme.

    Urban Camo Perhaps I'll add some of my own light grey lines around some parts and switch the dark grey parts to the light grey. I'll have to mix the paint tonight I need to get some of the stainless cups to mix in.

    Well, I haven't painted anymore lately. I've been working on my other WIP. For those of you that appreciate the building of a race car, that's what I'm doing. It's been sitting for almost a full year without starting or moving. Last night a buddy and I got her to turn over and run Extremely motivating considering how much time I've poured into this project. Still not done and won't be for some time.

    Hopefully in the next week or so I'll get the courage to add the 3rd color to Mr. Hi-Nu gundam to give it that urban camo look. I'll probably tape off some lines for some sort of design. Then, it's panel lining and adding the dusty look.
