Thanks. I think they are the same; they use the same picture of clamping the tiny table leg. Amazon is much cheaper though, but only has the one size. Micromark has some sweet looking tools.

There is the woodworker's adage, one of an infinite amount of adages, "you can never have too many clamps." I am testing that statement. So far, it is holding true. We won't discuss how many clamps I have. It's worse than my collection of tweezers. Much, much worse.

I'll treat myself to a couple of pairs of the short ones.

Shipping crates look good. If you ever get around to playing Infinity..you'll be set. Shipping crates used to be a staple of Infinity terrain for quite some time, even thouse marked Weyland-Yutani. The removable top looks very useful. I always like interior access.

I'm sorry Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

I cannot fit all of them into the photo frame. The total is well over 100, but not over 9000. I can give a representative sample.

The 4ground shipping containers are good, I bought three a while back and have been planning to build the third on the weekend for the past couple of weeks.

Great tutorial btw, I've had my eye on the Vallejo washes for a while now, guess they'll be getting more of my money.

@guild - yes, MDF and Cardboard details

@omn - They are enjoyable to construct, thanks

@redharvest - I just got 4 more of the clamps from Amazon, same exact Japanese brand and everything. just half the price

The Brand seems to be Hatagane, the logo is just a butterfly in a circle, stamped into each
https://www.fine-tools.com/hatagane.html


btw- all of my build bench photos currently look dark because my trusty old OTT light bulb finally died. If they are ridiculously priced, i'll replace it with another Chinese LED with all the different light temps and dimmers like my paint bench has.

dude WOW! You cleaned your desk! And to think you used to give me a (jokingly) hard time about mine.

I did absolutely everything wrong with my first airbrush attempt. Air pressure likely too high, was using "not airbrush" paint, expectations way too high, and gave up far too soon. I didn't bring it out this weekend but next weekend for sure. Probably.

I'd post a pic of my clamps but since it's very similar to Red's.

Container is looking great!

Welcome back, M0rdian. I got back last month after being gone since Jan '14. Reminds me of when I first joined Dakka, saw a bunch of posts from guys who had (also) been out of the hobby for 8-10 years, came back to it around the same time I did.

I wonder who else will be showing up soon?

Dave, in lieu of the Ott light bulb, try Alzo Joyous light bulbs, like these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0089MIH8I/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They are CFL's but very nice. Not too blue like many daylight light bulbs.

I'll be ordering those brass ones for sure. Too cool to pass up

I like the scatter inside the storage containers. Very well done. Can't wait to see the logos and warning signs etc on them.

Dude, no. Just no. Beer from a can is nasty. Just drink from the bottle. Good Luck 'accidentally' dipping your brush into that. Unless it is a Mickeys Malt Liquor wide mouth bottle. but if you drink that, you may have bigger problems.

Interestingly, a nice way to break up tap water is to add a drop of pet shampoo to a cup of it. I say Pet shampoo because you can use that with natural bristle brushes too as rinse water. Just don't over do it or your airbrush will be blowing soap bubbles. :(

This is the fundamental fear you have to conquer. It is Irrational, there is no mysticism, It will get clogged, you have to learn to clean it. There is no way around this, ever. Like wiping your butt, doing laundry, or washing dishes, cleaning your airbrush.

Honestly, I'm really digging the new LEDs out nowadays. These shop lights are supposed to last like 25 years, and I'm always loving the full spectrum daylight setting. Here in Indiana, winter is 110% Grey and SUCK weather all damn winter, the depression is REAL, I'm not kidding. Every damn day is Grey and miserable. A Human can only take so much of that, the daylight spectrum really helps. I think a mix of lighting is best. Except Soft White Incandescant, which is really Yellow and Depressing as well.

Rain? Well today was 75 degrees Fahrenheit here, and sunny. Tomorrow it'll be 80 degrees. And sunny

We'll get your rain this week-end though. I hope you can get our sun and warmth. Dry things out a bit.

Have you though about one of those Arc lamps made from LEDs? if you poke around Klaus's thread you'll see that he has one. (You should poke around his thread anyways, just for its general awesomeness.)

Yellowish lighting. It looks good in Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes, but otherwise I agree. it is terrible light for the hobby.

Those Alzo Joyous lights I mentioned are used to treat S.A.D. Treat yourself and the missus to some. They are great in reading lamps and desk lamps. I use them in my avian lamps for my parrots.

@tim -oh the lamp! Sure thing!

I picked up one of these
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V9YW41O/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It was on sale at the time. Occasionally, Amazon will sell things at or below cost. I don't know the reason, but I appreciate finding them
Its a Chinese-made LED, and it appears it is sold under a few different brands.
I got another one, yet somewhat smaller for pictures over my turntable, when my ancient swing-arm metal lamp finally gave up.
It has 4 different color temps (you can see on the additional amazon pics), and a full 6 level dimmer mode, Controls that remind me of the USS Enterprise, and more fine adjustments than I'll ever need.

I'm not alone, I follow most of the miniature painters (that I can stand their personalities) on Twitch, and many of them use these same lamps. I guess the LED is easier to color adjust for video cameras too.

@Red, I've followed Klaus for a long, long time. He is an OG LOER member too He comes here occasionally He is an inspiration to us all!

I've tagged him

Thank you sir! A bit spendy, but interesting.

I found a similar single arm lamp for $40, but it appears that I ordered the last one so the photo in the listing is not available any more. Hopefully a photo will reappear when they get restocked.

Ah the old lighting debate still marches on. I find it bloody annoying that these daylight units are "special" and therefore cost more.
