    How do you shade snow? What colors?

    Ha ha Free. I was going to post that too, but you beat me to it. Love a bit of Zappa. Snow doesn't always look white but put your 'white' dogs in the snow and you realise the snow is considerably whiter than the dogs!

    Looks great Jeroen, very lifelike.

    Hataka Lacquer paints - OMG!

    Hey Wumm, thanks for the concern. I have a respirator and paint booth, so I'm mitigating as much as I can. It's the residual odour my wife objects to. I also run to work everyday through town so I get regular pulmonary function checks which are always well above my age predicted normal, so all seems to be well.

    Hataka Lacquer paints - OMG!

    Thanks for the reply Peter. I pondered them for my Greek A-7 as they do make dedicated Hellenic sets but I bottled it and stuck with the Ammo acrylics I've used for the last few builds. Might give them a try for the next project.

    How do the lacquer smell Peter? That's always my (or my wife's) issue with lacquers and Mr Color got vetoed a while back. I'm hoping once our younger one goes to Uni in September I can 'convert' his bedroom and get some peace

    Where I'm at

    Hope you get back safe Harv. Some colleagues were in Seattle for a conference last week and had a nightmare getting back - some baggage is still 'en-route'! The unusual amounts of snow there has even made the news here in the UK

    Looking great Mark but I'm not sure I envy you having to add all those rivets.

    The lozenge material on the seat and back panel is stunning.
  11. Just the thought gives me a headache. I've never mastered the art of getting small enough amounts of CA to glue PE effectively without big blobs all over it, so I take my hat off to you for the pristine finish.

    Hope it goes well Rich and look forward to this getting a reboot.
  13. Good grief Danny that AA mount would suck all the joy out of me on it's own.
