blocked...


ok, I get it now... site is blocked from my work. funny, cuz I'm the boss who made it that way!

should stay off the web and get to work!

I'll try it at home.

airbrushing question though: I'm looking at airbrushing some mylars for vac bagging composite foam wings, and was wondering what kind of paint to use, tired of Krylon. If I use water based acrylics (e.g. auto air / createx / parma) will I have to be careful with the final cured surface, e.g. no water contact, no wiping off dirt etc with denatured alcohol? That is a real pain, and my gliders get really banged up. If not acrylics, what then? Catalyzed paint is great, but smelly and I hate having to be so careful avoiding it drying in my airbrush etc.

thx!!

I have the spray nozzle but I don't have a compressor. Could anyone recommend a reasonably priced compressor?

Check out TCP Global or McMaster Carr. You could go to Harbour Freight if you have one near you. They have cheap compressors... don't expect perfect psi though.
