Got my MOJO back was created by PJNZ
This is a Richpen Phoenix 213c that has been customised by Mike LEARN or USA which he then calls a 'MOJO'. I got it in 2006 and it has been my favourite fine detail brush of all time. It's atomisation, control and fine detail capabilities are remarkable. Unfortunately it started malfunctioning somewhat about 2 years ago and I tried all sorts to get it operating perfectly again. This week I got serious and stripped it down and rebuilt it and Yahoo! - it is now performing back to it's original high level. Stoked! :P So looking forward to trying it for fine detail work on models.
Have attached a couple pieces I have done with it in the past. Feel like I've been reunited with a good friend! :)

What they all said. Wish I could use an airbrush like that. Don't know which is my favourite one, but the fuel tank is a masterpiece. Nice claws too :evil:

Thanks guys, I must admit I have spent quite a few hours hanging off the end of an airbrush over the years. Yes I'm interested to find ways to include some creative airbrushing into model building. Any thoughts?

To be fair FK, writing nicely with an airbrush is one of the harder things to master I think.

Glenn the mural on the truck sleeper sounds a good idea but man that would be some MICRO-airbrushing right there! You build it - I'll mural it ;)

Cheers guys :-)
