Aye Caramba!  That's a lot of paints, Carl.

That's just the Tamiya, Gunze and AK. I have the Vallejo paints to my boys. Less chance if spills I figure.

One of the toughest aspects of painting camouflage is trying to get it as close to the historical version as possible.

In this shot, I made my best so far attempt at the scalloped leading edges common to Messerschmitt wings:

And in this second shot you can see what the mottle looks like when distressed with wet 8000 grit micromesh:

Those scalloped leading edges look pretty damned good - was that airbrushed?

Thank you!  I made 80mm long masks with my Silhouette Portrait, then airbrushed em.  I'm hoping that by simple enlargement I can use them for 1/32 scale/

Kittyhawk F-86K. I have a bunch of other things going too, but this one is taking most of the bench right now. Markings are masked and painted.

Well I see the problem, the rest of the airplane is missing. :)

Cuts to the Norwegian defence budget were particularly severe that year.

Floor pan of the Zoukei Mura Ki-45 cockpit. Attempting different techniques to get the look I think I'm finally happy with.

Some figures....  if some company that makes figures creates face decals that work, they'll sell like hotcakes. (you heard it here, first)

Not much progress on the P11c right now, but made some changes to my Hobbyzone modules.

One issue I have with the tools' module is that it has a lot of small diameter holes, which are only useful for small diameter tools like files or fine brushes.

As I had some scrap thin plywood, I decided to modify two if my three tool-modules. I built boxes with 16, 13 and 10 mm dia holes, and substituted these boxes with the original horizontal multi-holes plate. I glued them inclined. The plywood is not the best, as it splits on drilling, but I used what I had, and only I know it could look cleaner, as you don't see much difference when it's loaded.

On the left of the pic are the two new modfied modules, and on the right the original one (which has still some use for the files and brushes).

A lot happier now with the bench tidying ;)

Nice mod there Hubert. That was one of the things I didn't like about my Hobby Zone organizer and why I went with the Arttystation one.

I got evicted from my hobby room, it’s now my wife’s at home office for the time being. So I moved my work area down to the garage, which is OK, because I was going to be using lacquer paints for several builds..

Hubert I have the one that your Flexifile is on and I find it about useless to hold smaller brushes. It seems that the bore at the bottom of the unit is too shallow to allow the brush not to tip or fall out.

Agreed. It seems we all have some issues with the design of some of these modules. My mod is simple enough and requires a couple hours of work for someone with basic DYI skills. If others are interested, I can publish the template I drew, with dimensions.
