You could nearly use them for golf tees.

I'll try the magic powder over black and see how it looks Gary, should be OK, I can build up the injection system and not have to man handle it too much.
It can always be touched up anyway.

Not through the simple a/b I have Geoff, I thought it has to be sprayed at a low pressure?

The Kosutte Ginsan should be easier, we'll see. I have that Alclad for ages now!

I forgot how "plain" the injector manifold really is. Without paint or chrome I can tell. The stacks, without chrome do look a bit odd, kind of like parts for scale model bagpipes. Scary thought!

Do them semi gloss black Shay, they'd look cool.

They look good in black, polished metal for me though. I'm sure you'll do them justice whichever way you go Shay.

Magic powder over gloss black, it looks very dark in person, I'll wait until daylight to see what it looks like.

Thanks Curt, I can't seem to find Spaztix stuff here anywhere.

A word of warning on the Kosutte, I hadn't opened mine for maybe 2 years, and while it's still powder, it's not as fine as it was, I can only assume I didn't close the lid tightly enough last time I used it.

Oh, MAN! Airbrushes are sooo much fun. The first few times (just like being a newbie with computers) they seem awkward, but with time and playing with them, they become a preferred tool. Only downside is the cleaning. Best to you in adventures ahead!
