    I purchased one of these stands almost two years ago. However with my move from Dallas 185 miles west, I have not had a chance to use it. It is still in original box in one of my moving boxes. Hope to get back to more modeling and painting soon. I first saw one of these paint stands being used by a model car/military vehicle builder on a you-tube video. He was showing some weathering techniques on military vehicles which I thought could apply to my railroading. The stand cought my eye then. Cheers....John

      Had a chance to try the stand out this weekend. Was experimenting with Model Master paint. Discovered that VM&P Naphtha will thin the paint. Says on the can "Fast drying thinner for oil-based paint, enamel & varnish." And it works great.



      This shell was just an experiment. I didn't get it covered properly with primer first. That's why the lettering is showing through. Was also experimenting with two different airbrushes. Both Badger, one an internal mix, the other external.

            Oh darn, now you've got paint all over the stand.

            actually the old name showing through is a good touch. It goes along with the "patch" paint schemes of today.
