  1. Kai, All of the time spent grinding will pay off as those details are excellent.
  2. Very nice weathering on the tires and underside. I wish there were a lot more close up period photos.
  3. Thank you, Martin! That is a great photo.
  4. Not so fast, meine freund. The black is only the base coat. Something for the aqueous acrylics to hold on to. Thank you, Kai. Thank you, Peter. My method, borrowed from others is pretty much all written out. So most likely won;t have anything new to add.
  5. Looks good, Phil. Can;t wait to see some color.

  7. Anyway... Saturday is here, and I wanted to get some work done before going out to the pub with some workmates. We don't do much else together since they don't build models and I don't do whatever they do with their free time. Anyway... The wife will pick me up once I'm ready. I'm gonna get ripped. Screwdriver is my thing. Anyway... here is today's work:
  8. Excellent progress, Peter! I was almost tempted to grab another Revell kit today... then I realized I had an earlier version of the aircraft by Dragon. I like the scheme... but that is a lot of yellow to weather.
  9. I will definitely matte the hell out of it. Clothing is no place to shine. Unless you've wearing sequins.
  10. No problem, Rob. As for me, I've gotten to the point where I want the option of making the suspension going over obstacles and such just add a little interest. This is one area where link-and-length fails.
  11. Hi Everyone, In my narrative... the tank hasn't been there very long. Certainly not since before the last rain. Some of the reasons for this are: a. I wanted to make ashes. They never survive a stiff breeze. b. I didn't want to have to turn it into a total rust bucket. That wouldn't fit with reason (a). c. I wanted the earth around the tank to still show signs of fire damage. So, with an eye to that, I've used whitish paint on the road wheels which had previously had rubber tires. Black paint to show extreme burning and soot from smoke.... and browns to show areas affected by heat. But this is where it gets fuzzy and I begin to lose direction. I still have room for a fine patina of rust on the tracks. But I've never really seen any decent images of a freshly scorched tank in color. Even when I was in Desert Storm, the toasted Iraqi tanks had been there for a while. So... if anyone has any ideas... or pics of freshly destroyed tanks... I'd love to hear or see them. Here are current progress pics: Thanks for looking! ... and happy modelling!
  12. G'day ladies and gents, Today's modelling was shortened by the need to replace my pool pump. The bearings had gotten so noisy that I had to disconnect the timer, and run the thing during full daylight hours. I didn't want to become the a[hole of the neighborhood. So, today I got onto the faces and uniforms. Pic's are captioned... well... most of them, anyway.
  13. That is some impressive work, Craig! Hope you have a big tube of aluminum polish for later.
  14. My most recent acquisition. Made the mistake of telling a friend it was one of the last few on my must-have list. So, he showed up at our club meet with one the following month. I got it for an I-O-U of half it's current retail value. I'll have to put Zimmerit on it... but that's a piece of cake.
  15. The best camo schemes require the most work. So, keep up the good work... it;s looking great!
  16. I like the dirt effects around cowl and access panels. I've looked for similar fuel stains on the 109F whose filler cap is nearly the same location as the P-40 you've got. Haven't found one, yet. But who is to say it just wasn't photographed.
  17. You've done well, Harv! Your patience and determination are admirable.
  18. Excellent painting, John! Oh... and decals, too! You're moving too fast! Your next kit should be by Revell.
