Hi Guy just to let you know the the Rattle can of Chrome paint that i used for my last few NMF finishes is available in Aldi today. just remember to use a black primer undercoat and allow for a few days for the paint to fully harden.Also a coat of Klear will change the Tone/Contrast of the finish a bit.

if you want me to pick one of these up let me know. they are way better then the one that you have to change the collet thingy to match the bit you are going to use. you can use the smallest bits in them

Good spot Spud! Those engravers are very handy. I got one last year and I've hardly used it but it does the job for modelling. I must get one of those adaptors. Where can I get one?

This is also coming up for €5.99 I'm not sure how good it is…

Is that adapter for the engraver? If it is it would be great.

Hardware place on Oliver Plunket st. (Opposite end to Marks ) that might have that chuck.
Any place or site that carries Dremel accessories should do it too.
loads of kits.... but no confidence to build...!!

In store tomorrow (Monday 24th August)

Parkside® 300W Airbrush Set €59.99 (link)

I can't say how good this is but it might be a good starter kit for those wanting to move onto airbrushing.

Some handy brushes for weathering purposes too (€2.99)
