Hi all - Recently I started a couple of old Monogram Curtiss biplane kits, =
I was planning on bashing some of them into similar, unmodeled experimental=
versions, like a P-20, P-22, P-23, etc. I planned on using ordinary rattle=
can paints. When I reached for the Model Master Yellow, it came out in a ve=
ry wide cone that was about 60-degrees (as oppised to the tighter, maybe 20=
-degree cone of "normal" rattlecan paints) and with about half the pressure=
of (ahain) "normal" cans. Thinking that there was something wrong with tha=
t particular can, I got out another can from my stash and found it to deliv=
er the same thing. The paint covers - eventually, but because of the wider =
spray, I wasted a lot of paint in overspray. These paints were bought at th=
e same time, about six months ago and yes, I DID shake them up throughly.
Has anyone here ever noticed this effect before or did I get the brass ring=
And short of decanting the paint ito a jar for my own airgun, how do I keep=
it from happening again?
