Thank you Bob, I couldn't have said it better myself! I started putting down newspaper but found it to unnecessary.

In my experience, at least, a properly adjusted airbrush produces only negligible overspray.  At the very most, as when you are working on the breakfast table instead of in a dedicated workshop area, a cardboard box set on its side is more than adequate to keep overspray contained.

Very basic setup that i'm sure works fine. How do you go with overspray thou? Thanks

Why  4  photos of same tank?

Apologies as I did not know and I suspect that others do not know that you are the admin for the modellers group for this site.  I agree that some critiques have gone astray and that we are all fans of the NWP and maybe smart when it starts working in support of the NWP new customers.

So I will no longer post on this thread.  But I do encourage modeller members to work in support of NWP moving northward.  How about a model of the Cloverdale station with 2472 pulling an excursion train?

I started this, as an attempt to show how using an airbrush can be done without breaking the bank. How it has degenerated into impolite comments about fellow members of this group is beyond me.

We all are fans of the NWP, and perhaps, SMART. Mark Drury has been very tolerant of off subject posts and threads. Lets close this thread out and move on.

If any of you have any questions about the worlds cheapest spray both or airbrushing feel free to contact me.

I highly respect your posts as we have together posted about smart vs NWP RoW etc.  What have I missed in Jennifer posts? 

I did not want to get into a critique of Jennifer but since you ask, if she was posting about me instead to R. Todd, then she failed to look at my member profile to see how many threads I have started or made comments on the subjects to which I have made reference over my 5+ years as a member.

And again, I don't have time to "blog" as he has posted.  I'd rather spend my time helping John Williams make a go of the business.

It's a personal thing so let's not get into a Tommytommy thing again.

Happy Holidays,

Richard Brand

PDF:  I agree with your assessment of Jennifer's post.

Richard C. Brand:  You're an educated fellow, right?  You need to re-read Jennifer's post carefully and connect the dots.

Respectfully,  Ron

PD fan:

Doubt it.  Jennifer addresses me in a formal manner as "Mr. Brand". 

As well she asked Richard Todd, a writer to create a thread or even a blog on I assume issues relative to modelling.  

I don't spend time creating a blog, but I have already started discussions and provided commentaries here in regards to the subjects I listed in my earlier post on this thread.  If Jennifer has any questions, I will refer her to the "Healdsburg" group as an example.
