Paasche Talon TG-3F Unboxing

Hey plamo nerds! You'll have to pardon the erratic posting schedule on the blog as of late - I'm still in the US and have been really busy with work. I've been told retail therapy is good for relieving stress and homesickness, so I've been surfing Amazon and Ebay for parts to upgrade my airbrushes back home. Somewhere along the way I found a great deal on the Paasche Talon TG - an airbrush that I've been curious about for some time - but have been on the fence on purchasing due to the mixed reviews I've seen. In the end I just couldn't let hearsay deprive me of a potentially awesome tool without trying it out myself, so here we are. Established in the early 1900s, Paasche is one of the oldest airbrush manufacturers in the world - and with decades of experience and engineering going into the Talon's design, I have really high expectations from this tool. The package I purchased has quite a few things included, so I thought it best to split the unboxing and performance review into separate posts. Let's take a look!

An Open Letter On The State Of Sanctioned Contests

Greetings and salutations!

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I have been building gundam model kits for 6 years, and I also operate a blog that promotes the hobby. I've decided to reach out on behalf of fellow enthusiasts in my country, regarding numerous recurring concerns on how the Gundam Model Kit Contest (GMKC) and the Gunpla Builder's World Cup (GBWC)  is conducted in the Philippines. These are annual events mandated over by the local distributor -  Bankee Trading.

Every year the hobby community voices out the same concerns, but it seems all our complaints fall on deaf ears. I am reaching out with an open letter, hoping it will find it's way to someone who has influence over these events.
