Re: Ziroli P40 build

Hello Pete, Its an Iwata revolution tr2. I've had this about 5 years without any issue, having sprayed at least 5 large warbirds prior to this one. It easily copes with any type of high pigment / enamels paint and is very comfortable to use. I prefer these type of brushes as the trigger resembles an...

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Hi Dave, "happy new year "

that's the one, Dremel Versatip. I had mine from Argos at a similar price, highly recommended. It has numerous tips and is capable of small silver soldering works,.... no brainer really.

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Hi John, Excellent so far, no issue at all. It is very universal and easily copes with long sessions of applying rivets, and being cordless speeds up application time. I've only done half a model with it but its got a quality feel to it with not a lot to go wrong, but time will tell. I wish id broug...

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Most jobs now completed, flaps all functional, motor ducted, just the retract doors to fit then she will be sprayed up. The plate under the cowl lip is removable for flight and is ducted direct with fiberglass plates either side of the engine to ensure good cooling.

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Very promising after the first session, no effort and produces very clean looking rivets due to the variable temperature. They are designed for long periods of use and are guaranteed for 2 years so we will see how it performs.

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Cheapo is the way Phil and its the luck of the draw...

In the case of the P40 its simply a ...

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Tis indeed Dave.... brought another cheapo but only lasted for 3 sessions.. I can't go any further until I sort one, any recommendations are more than welcome. Mr Clarke's finest Warbird Paint has arrived today so that makes it even worse.. :twisted:
