  1. Paint Paint Paint

    Well I got my compressor today, I think I could have used something larger but it may be adequate for my purposes. A new Iwata Ninja Jet air compressor showed up today. Its a pretty straight forward and small compressor, its so simple that it does not have a gauge go figure.

    Its got a hum to it so its not 100% quiet. Maybe if I make some money at painting locos I may upgrade to something more robust.

    I still need a respirator which means I need to go to Home Depot this ...

  2. A Medical Message that may Save Your Life!

    Some of you may have noticed that I have not been around here the last week or so. While others probably haven’t noticed and could care less anyway! Regardless, I urge you to read the following true story along with the message. It may very well save your life just as it (almost certainly) saved mine!

    I spent that week (or four days actually), in hospital where I underwent a “Laparoscopic Distal Pancreatectomy and Spleenectomy”. This is the removal of the tail of the pancreas since, ...
  3. Introduction...again!

    Hey everyone!
    I registered here quite sometime back as "SPSF" and then did nothing as far as being an active member. Then, I decided at another point I was going to participate more, made about 5 post and then did nothing again. So.......third times the charm! Have now gotten the admins to change my user name to something my friends from other forums should recognize
    (and hopefully not run screaming LOL!!) and here I am once again. Hope some of my old friends will see ...

  5. Second part of airbrush system to arrive soon

    by , 27th Feb 2012 at 03:47 AM (My Model RR Adventures)
    Tonight I purchased a Iwata Ninja Jet Air Compressor to go along with my Iwata Eclipse HP BS. Ive never had a airbrush compressor just the propellant cans which suck and dont last. Once again I ordered my Ninja Jet from Chicago Airbrush Supply for $129.97 which had the lowest price plus Priority Shipping from the USPS. This brings up another issue I need to pick a paint scheme for my locos.I cant find any english videos on th Iwata Ninja Jet but check this out .http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...eK4xx9I#t=227sClick image for larger version.
