Okay...   

Badger is an American airbrush manufacturer, and even on the Patriot, they have a Metric M5 threaded hose fitting...   

Yeah, my compressor has the usual 1/8" whatever fitting. 

So my plans of test driving my new airbrush turned into a bit of online shopping...

(Ordered an adapter on eBay)

I also added a bottle of airbrush cleaner and a pack of A4 sheets of masking film.

I have acquired a display case..

It's already too small as it's not deep enough for either Dragons Don't Share or the Sleeping Beauty diorama I'm working on.. But for free, it'll do for now..

sweep, deep, whatever.. i hate autocorrupt!

Ordered yet more Guild Ball sets, this time it's the Hunters Guild 'Blessings of the Sun Father' set and The Unions 'The Bloody Coin' set.

 

Was kind of hoping these could wait until later next month, as the Hunters Guild isn't officially replaced until August (and I just spent quite a bit getting those Brewer and Mason sets), but supplies are drying up already.

 

I think what I feared is coming to pass, stores don't want to get lumbered with these older sets like they were last time, so they're being careful with how much they keep in stock.

 

It would be so much easier if I could just accept that I don't actually need all the things.

Acquired today

 

metal 1/8" aluminum rod! :lol:

 

Ok it was the only hobby thing I bought today. It'll be used to attach a Schleich octopus sea critter to a large or huge base (not sure which one I want just yet).

Picked up a 1:144 scale model of a P47D at Honby Lobby. Clearance for $3. Also picked up several oil paints and a pallet knife for 50% off each item. Got a house project and couldn’t recall if we had the knife. But for $1.50, get it.

The US just needs to switch over to metric already and be done with it, honestly. Also, airbrush makers should probably have a sit-down and agree to a standard air hose connection size. My understanding is that Iwata, Badger, and Paasche all have a different size for the connection of airbrush to hose, which is why you have to buy their specific quick connect adapters. Once you have a quick connect on, though, it works in every quick connect because those are a standard size...

Every country has their issues.  The English use some metric but the cars drive in miles, the food is sold in pounds and kg, and they sell gas in liters but cars show efficiency in miles per imperial gallon.

 

Oh, and they do have one wonderful bonus:  beer is sold in imperial pints!

 

And for the US:  better all SAE than the horror of the 90s when cars used a mixture metric and SAE sizing and you had to play guess the wrench every time you wanted to do any work!

 

 

Received 3 games:  Seafall on heavy discount, Mission: Red Planet, and Sushi Go Party!  Had a lot of fun with the last

Remembered last night that an airbrush I bought years ago(Junk model with a jar under instead of a cup on top) came with a thin hose and a bottle adapter.  

I dug it out, and the hose actually fit onto the Badger!

It also came with a M5 to 1/4" adapter and a 1/4 to 1/8" adapter...   

I coupled it together and switched on the compressor...    

And it hissed worse than a Beancounter when you have to do a large, budgetbreaking purchase...

 

Today's shopping included 4L of 10W-40 oil for the car, and a roll of thread tape...   

(will try again tonight. Now I'm heading out to the garage and the impossible task of cleaning it up a bit... )

Right? They're 3D prints. They really do look like candy though...
