  3. Kolibri - Hand made Synthetic Golden sable Brushes

    Unfortunately there aren't any standards to brush sizes. The numbering systems is the same, but the same numbered brush from different manufacturers can vary in size. I'll add the brush width and lengths to the website shortly, so people know the head size. These brushes all have the same synthetic bristles, so will all be the same softness. I'll have a look and see if what the options for stiffer brushes are. Thanks, Paul
  4. Just arrived yesterday, £2.25 a pot. http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/meng-single-acrylic-paints-385-c.asp Thanks, Paul

  8. Extreme Weathering........ Sunday May 21st 2017

    I'm hoping we all learn a lot from the show. We have someone filming some of the demos as well, so I might be able to get to see some of them eventually ! This Yes, unfortunately the traders that are around don't appear to be interested. We had problems getting any of the local classic car clubs to to put on a display and the numbers through the door have been going down for a while. We may find a way of bringing autimodellismo back, but it's time to try something a little different. Even though it's a smallish venue, it's a reasonable size to hold specialist shows and the facilities are really good at the hall. So I'm hoping this one will give people the confidence to try new techniques and get their questions answered about the techniques they already use. Paul
  9. Extreme Weathering........ Sunday May 21st 2017

    More info on the show..... Now all the discussions about the show are complete, this is the show as we have it today..... EXTREME WEATHERING is our new show and replaces AUTOMODELLISMO that has run for the past six years. The date is Sunday 21st May 2017 at the usual HaMeX Events venue. Hanslope Village Hall, Newport Road, Hanslope, Bucks MK19 7NZ Start 10.00am The new show will concentrate on finishing your models - using weathering, texturing, washes, and airbrushing techniques, all demonstrated by a number of invited experts in their field. This detailing will apply to the models themselves, and also to finishing bases and dioramas. We aim that most modelling subjects will be covered – aircraft, military, cars and vehicles in general, plus space, science fiction and fantasy. Currently we plan six Demonstration Stations in the Main Hall, with space in front for people to sit or stand to watch the action, and we hope, to ask questions and maybe take part in the demos. Each base will have examples of the work on display.... and may be a few things for sale. There will also be a traders present, with a range of weathering materials, and maybe to tempt you with a kit of some new modelling subject! The Small Hall will feature a display and demonstrations from the New City SMC. There is also the possibility of fitting a couple more Demo Stations in there. The line up of demonstrators is currently as follows - although may change if people are not available due to professional commitments. Richard Franks (Valiant Wings ) : Airbrushing and weathering aircraft Mike Tucker [Provisional] : Finishing SFX miniatures. How the professionals weather, distress and generally ‘dirty down’ models for filming. http:// http://www.themodelunit.co.uk/ Kev Green : Airbrushing basics and using masks in airbrushing http:// https://www.facebook.com/kevgreen.images/posts/10154556379564171 Chris Simmons : Figures and SF Michelle Edwards : Basic AFV weathering techniques Mat Irvine : Cars and vehicles – with an emphasis on materials for diorama bases http:// http://www.matirvine.com/ New City SMC will be based in the Small Hall, with displays and demos. This is the first time we have run this show, so we have tried to leave things as open as possible, so we can get dialogue between attendees and the demonstrators. If you come along, speak up if you want to know about a specific technique, or how to solve a weathering and finishing problem you have. We will be producing a form, so people can give us feedback on the show and what they would like to see on the demo menu for the next time we run the event. We have free parking as normal, (the side car park is newly paved), and the K-9 Café will be open as usual. There will also be a raffle with the main prize being £50 of weathering materials. As we have demonstrators’ expenses to pay, entry will be a little more than for a standard HaMeX show, to reflect the extra costs. Entry is £5 per person, but this will include one ticket for a free tea or coffee from the K-9 Café and one free raffle ticket for a load of weathering materials. (Others can be purchased.) More to be added when we have it. Thanks, Paul
  10. Scottish National Scale Model Show 2017 - 29th & 30th April 2017

    Modellingtools.co.uk will be there as usual. Hopefully on the left as you walk down into the show. Thanks, Paul
  11. The Extreme weathering show organising is now in progress. I did a dummy setup of the main hall last night and we can get 6 demo tables with space for people to stand / sit to watch/interact with the demos in the main hall and possibly another couple in the back room. We will also have a few traders there selling their wares. modellingtools.co.uk will be there, hopefully Valiant Wing will have a lot of bargains there. I'm also looking for a general kit seller to come along. There will hopefully be a few club display / demos in the back room. Catering with the bacon butties will be there as usual and there should be plenty of free parking. Show opening times will be the normal 10:00 until 16:00. This first show is a bit of an experiment as people haven't given any real indication what they want to know. We are hoping the first show will give us a lot of feedback, so we can put on a more targeted event in 2018 ! Thanks, Paul
  12. Peterborough Scale Model Club Show

    Modellingtools.co.uk will be there as normal. Hope to see everyone there. Paul
  13. I've just been able to get a better price on our little-tank compressor. So I'm passing the savings along by dropping the price of the compressor and our starter sets. The little-tank was £210, we can now offer it for £180 with a 2 year warranty. Full details of the compressor are here: http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/little-tank-compressor---new-lower-price-3442-p.asp A number of starter sets are on this page: http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/airbrush--compressor-sets-196-c.asp We will also have the compressors available at all the shows we attend. Thanks, Paul

  15. I'm looking for some feedback, ideas etc... for one of out Hanslope shows. We are looking to replace the Automodellismo show due to lack of traders & clubs for various reasons. I'm looking to put on a more generic show, but with a focus. At idea at the top of the list is 'Extreme Weathering' It has the advantage that it could be any subject and could lead into putting on some demos as well as possibly holding an open competition. Add to that club/sig displays, Traders and maybe some outside exhibits. So any ideas to expand on this, ideas of demos you'd like to see, or even volunteer to put on gratefully received. Thanks, Paul
