  1. Never mind. I'll just paint the whole thing.
  2. I'm working on a 1/16 scale tank model and I'm getting ready for the gloss coat prior to decaling. Since the model is large and the area covered by the decals is small, can I confine the area of gloss coat To the areas covered by the decals or should I cover the entire model with gloss? I plan to cover the entire model with clear Flat afterwards. I'll be using tamiya acrylics. to
  3. Thanks for the link. Interesting article and wonderful patina effects.
  4. Rob, your Nautilus and Squid looks fantastic. I'm just looking for a more realistic weathered looking brass or copper finish than the too bright looking brass and copper paints I've been using. I'm planning another Takom Renault ft build and I want the engine to be a little more realistic this Time.
  5. Wow! You certainly are a very talented builder.
  6. Thanks, I'm looking for a metallic paint that looks like tarnished brass that I can brush. I was thinking I might try mixing acrylic paints like tamiya, or perhaps enamel paint to achieve this effect. Any Ideas ?

  12. Thanks Harv, not much to see on mine except a lot of tan plastic, but I'll post some pics when I finish. I was thinking a similar process regarding the tracks. Tamiya dark iron on the bottom and metallic gray on The track surface followed by a light rust over coat on both surfaces. Then dry brushing with silver the high points on the outside surface. I used to get a good effect using graphite powder to high light but it's be such a long time since I've tried this.
