Re: B734 Exeter hard touchdown 19/01/21

It's possible that it was the weather but 230/10 on runway 26 doesn't sound too breezy. With such damage it's a wonder the landing gear didn't collapse or the tyres burst.

Re: Advice on connecting a compressor to an airbrush

The compressor and hose I have was able to connect directly to the Iwata airbrush I use. The Aztech I have needed an adapter to connect the airbrush to the hose. An email to air-craft.net or everythingairbrush might work. I'm sure they can help.

Re: Advice on a compressor for an airbrush

I use a Sparmax TC610H and it's been fine so far. Adjustable pressure, although I don't mess with this much. It's noisy when the tank fills up but quiet in operation. As a relatively new airbrush user, I would say that getting the pressure right is the the key and I will spend two hours masking and ...

Sticking with aeroplane photos taken in 2020. This first one was taken from our back garden. Early during the lockdown an RAF C-17 was doing some visual circuits at runway 05L at Manchester and flying downwind took it right over our house.

I use Vallejo or Hataka acrylics, the advantage being lack of smell and washable with water. Occasionally I use Xtracrylix thinned down as well.
