Working on this now: A Trumpy 1/35 Soviet PT-76. So far an occasionally 

frustrating kit with some very tiny parts. I found myself on my knees searching

for tiny parts that I thought I'd never find again. I did find them! Anyway, I think 

It'll turn out Ok. I've been spending a lot of time filling some holes for cable ends

I decided I won't use. The string provided, well, I didn't like the looks of it.

Nice. Always had a soft spot for these odd Soviet swimming tanks

Progress is slow on the Hellcat, due to drying times and lots of 1/1 scale modelling on the house ;).
The basic paintjob is done so far, this time with Gunze colors, a first for me. They sprayed well onto the 3D enhancing black and white base coat, which still shows a little. After applying the three camo colors, I used heavy thinned variants of them for panel accentuation and a little shading and lighting. Then I added the wings and tail, because it was way easier to apply the camo freehand, without the wings. Next will be an oil treatment as a pre weathering and to get the blues a bit more vibrant and then it's decaling / wet transfer time.

Cheers Rob

Do what's best for you and your family Phil, there is nothing won with feeling guilty, because of what... ? These are weird times and we should look and care for the people which are important to us and when there is time left, have some FUN.

Cheers Rob

Not a good day

Bummer, but you can't blame the dog for it this time, at least not the decal. I hope you find a solution. Isn't there a second canopy for an opened display?

Cheers Rob

Amigos, I lave oil colors. As longer I use them, the more I like them. I applied a deep blue, a medium blue and some light bluish grey in dots, emphasizing panels, light and shadow vaguely.
Then I spread the oils with thousands of little dabs, to get a slightly uneven coverage. The synthetic saw brush was very carefully dampened wit fast drying thinner from time to time. Dabbing wise, I built up some fine layers of paint, with the base color still shining through, but got what I wanted an accentuated and more vibrant color rendition.

Cheers Rob

Ughhhhh :icon_eek:
