      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Airbrushing Jigs

Question

The best way to airbrush jigs is to get a good primer and base coat on them 1st.

You have a couple *good* choices for paint. You can apply powder for a base coat(must heat jigs and dip) in which ever color you wish. The second way is to use vinyl paint. Using vinyl paint you will have the best results if you dip(or spray solid even coat) in white 1st(primer), and then dip or spray again in the base color of your choice. Always dip or spray your jigs the lightest color in your color scheme 1st .. then go from there.

Dipping the jigs will give you your best base coat, will use less paint, and will give you a durable paint job in the end. The best way to dip is to make racks to hold several jigs at a time that can be dipped in long, shallow trays. Be sure to thin your paint to a proper consistency. Once you start to airbrush be sure to thin the paint(vinyl) propery with a ******er(slow thinner), put extra heavy needles in your brush, and crank up the air to about 50 psi.

Do some experimenting with your airbrush and get the jigs the way you want them, and from there be sure to put a solid coat of clear gloss on the jigs for a nice finish, and protective layer so your paint doesnt wear off quickly.

Vinyl and powder paint can be bought from a company called Component Systems. The thinner for vinyl is Xylol(Xylene) which can be purchased at most paint and hardware stores.

Sorry for the long post. This should give you all the info you might need.
