Willem, thanks very much for looking this up for me. That does look like it has potential and not a massive cash outlay. When I was more productive I used 3/000 brushes. I suspect something even finer would be required for this. Thanks again. Prime membership gets this to me tomorrow!!

Wilhelm, thanks for the heads-up on this. I had no idea you could get such a thing.
I ordered one yesterday and have just unboxed it and started playing with it today. Marvellous. Can't wait to get some detail work and a brush underneath it.
(Have to wait a bit though, it's 32C in the garden today - in Scotland!!!. Locals are crawling out from under stones and  wondering what this funny yellow hot thing in the sky is! Must get the factor 50 on while it lasts!)
Thanks again for the links

One more question Gary. Once you started using the microscope did you change to smaller brush sizes. I know paint volume has as much to do with brush size as the point but I'm just wondering if a 3/000 under magnification is too big.

So as not to hijack this thread I posted my initial thoughts on the Dcorn scope Willem suggested over on hints and tips. All things considered, not bad.

Itís interesting once I did start using the scope I did find my brushes were inadequate. In further conversation with Mr. Takaishi, he advised me on using Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes, and it was the best advice - Iíve never looked back. These brushes hold and deliver acrylic paint like no other, and I always use them for the figures especially. The points on them last a long time...my first 000 brush I bought back in 2018 is still going strong. I also use a magical fluid called Brush Restorer made by Winsor & Newton to clean them. It dissolves any paint you can name, but itís claimed non-toxic (I would not drink it 😅)

Getting to your question about size, 000 is the smallest Iíve used, and works perfectly. I can paint the iris and pupils on a 1/32 face no problem. Going smaller may run the risk of not holding enough paint....or paint drying out before it can be applied. With acrylics I found thereís such a balance between brush-loading, paint dilution, and drying time that you juggle all three in the space of a few seconds. Thereís nothing like practice and Iím still learning as I go. Iím very interested to see your experience with your new device, and if you stick with it for all kinds of modelling work.

Cheers,
Gary
