I just gave myself that nickname. No one has ever called me Pete or any other nickname. I am not cheap, but I like to use what I have on hands when I build my model kits. I won’t spend a fortune on paint masks. I will make my own and use my paint brushes when I can.
Speaking of paint, I still have lots of leftover paint from the 80s. I have been using very thinned Tamiya deep green as a primer on the He 111.
I will be using my airbrush later when the temperature outside has cooled down a bit. Speaking of being cheap, I am still using my old faithful Badger 350 airbrush I bought in the 70s which still gives me good results.
We will see what happens when I get there.
