I, too, endorse the Badger Crescendo. Only downside is that any time I eff up with airbrushing now I can't blame the paint or tools.

I had lots of trouble with both Air and Color until I started using the Badger Cresendo

Can't help you with the masking side as all the models I've painted with Vallejo have been single color with any other colors done by brush. I use mostly Gunze these days more for standardisation than any other reason. They have a pretty good range of colours and if I need any others it's usually Tamiya.

You need to use Vallejo clear over Vallejo, Gunze is solvent based and will affect Vallejo. Found that out the hard way as well  ::)

i really hate Vallejo Model Air now .... brought a couple of bottles a few weeks ago, since i was hearing raving reviews about it ... used their airbrush thinner ... man talk about hard work ...

first up, drying in the nozzle ... had to open the pin to get it to flow, which caused the good old pooling.

lifted when masked ( and yes I waited several days).  I also stuck the tape to my arms and legs to remove most of the tackiness ... and yes, there are patches of hair missing and the model is a bit hairy

chipped easily from handling

used Gunze Clear Gloss acrylic over top of it and it ended up cracking - i started leaving 2 days between paint applications ...

had to use Vallejo Glaze Medium (i think thats what it was), got acceptable results, but drying time extended ... had to use hair dryer to speed it up ...

i have no problems with vallejo with hand painting, but with airbrush, its not worth it ... reminds me of the early Model Master paints you got in the bag to attach to the Aztec Airbrushes ...

going back to Gunze and Tamiya Acrylics ... they have yet to piss me off.

Yes it would appear that although posting activity is a mere blip now, the rubbernecking is as high as ever. There is a pile of good info and subjects on this site and it would be a pity to see it disappear as has happened with other forums. Facebook may have taken over but it still sucks as a resource, having to wade through 32 shares of the same bloody thing day in, day out with the same replies to each share by the same people then 2 weeks later it gets shared again and off it goes AGAIN!  :( :( :(

Hi guys, new to the forum but not new to gunpla. Shuttle between Singapore and Melbourne. Been collecting since I was 18. Sadly full time employment has kept me from completing more kits, so the hobby has been pretty much just buying and collecting for the past few years. I would be thinning out my collection due to the arrival of my new born child, and only keeping a few kits that I hope to build when I have more spare time.

Long time no post right? Yes I've largely extracted myself from the day to day running of the forum but I am still overseeing, paying for the domain and the hosting and keeping the old girl alive ^^;

Speaking of hosting, VentraIP have been very good to us. The outages have been minimal since we migrated from Websh1tty.

All good things must pass though and I am migrating us again to a local company that will be managing my other business domain

This might mean a couple of minor outages over the next 72 hours or so while we migrate and run some tests to make sure everything is stable. Your patience during this time is appreciated.

Thank you all for your ongoing support. You are the original Gunpla community in Australia and without you there is no GAF and for each person that still browses and uses the forum I am grateful. The way we use the internet has changed a great deal since we started out many many years ago but we intend to stick around as an important online resource, and history of the origins of the Aussie Gunpla hive mind, and lastly as a middle finger to the yes men and corporate lapdogs. You know who you are  :-X  :sorry:  :fyou:
