  1. Happy Birthday from a fellow 10/19-er
  2. Turns out there was an error with the hotel, so ReaperCon and the MMSI Chicago Show ARE in fact the same weekend. Depending on the dates, maybe I'll be back for RCon in 2017.
  3. I would clean the blood off first and apply paint to a clean fresh primer surface. It may take a wire brush if the blood has really dried on and started to pit the metal.
  4. Since ReaperCon decided a few years ago to follow in the enlightened ways of the MMSI Chicago Show Open System, it is mostly not a competition, but instead a juried exhibition. Yes, there are trophies in the categories for best Reaper product entered. For most painters, the show is about judging against a standard and awarding the number of medals based on the quality of the work displayed. If 20 people displayed Gold Medal level work, then 20 Gold Medals would be awarded. No one "wins" a medal at the expense of another. Where it does become a competition is competing with yourself to improve.
  5. Just think of it as a personal challenge. A step up into the big league and a chance to earn a shiny new medal.
  6. Happy B-Day!
  7. I use a coarse-textured microfiber cloth. Same improvement over paper products.
  8. Look at the nozzle of your P3 primer, then go to your nearest full service auto parts store and look at the Patented Nozzle on the cans of Duplicolor. P3 is Duplicolor primer at a 2.5X markup. Good to know! Will have to try a can of each and see for myself! Napa, Auto Zone etc? George I reached that conclusion a few years ago when priming the minis for GenCon Paint & Take. Had both Duplicolor Sandable White and P3 White to use that day.

  10. Duplicolor Sandable White Primer is IMO THE BEST primer in a can that I have ever used (I like it much better than the more expensive Tamiya and Floquil primers).
  11. I better get painting then...... Time for at least 2 or 3 squirrels.
  12. ... and soon it will be Tiramisu time and then Scotch Standard Time (repeat as needed). Tomorrow begins the marathon to get something done in time for the MMSI show this weekend.
  13. Happy B-Day from one 19ther to another!
  14. Well deserved win for you with that Italian Ren dress Last time I wore garb to a Renn Faire, I was still living in NY and the pictures were all on FILM!
  15. Here's to another lap around the sun and a fresh poured glass with the bubbles still sinking down!
