  1. Panel variation creating adding filters

    Personally i'd use oils for that - a lot safer. However if you only want to use Acrylics look at the true-earth range, http://www.true-earth.com/en-uk/index.html

    Ok - today's work on the Kit from Hell - first the PE managed to go missing, then started adding the rest of the cockpit, and fitting the covers. Again, shockingly bad fit Think i know the problem causing all of this - the right fuselage half is out of whack (bent slightly), and it's thrown everything else off all the way along the build. So out with the Milliput Peter

    Thanks to Eduard's spares, back on the go with this. However the spare sprue isn't without it's problems - it's obviously from a different run of the kits, so has some issues A couple of really nasty gaps - so Shimming, filling and sanding required A bit more cleanup tomorrow. Peter
  4. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Finished last weekend, but took the final photo's today. Painted with Ammo Acrylics, weathered with Oils and Pigments Peter
  5. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Today a couple of hours working with oils, and i'm calling it done. I'll take some proper photos next weekend. Peter
  6. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Paint steel, Track Wash Oil (brown / grey ), pigments for earth, then metallic pigments on the high points
  7. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Today's work - painted the tracks, added a Track wash and some pigments, then glued the tracks in place, and applied a pin wash and the decals. Peter

    Today - Filters. Using these and a lot of thinners First an overall brown filter, then lots of dot filtering - needs to dry now, Peter
  10. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Today's work - paint - first a coat of black primer, then the Ammo 4BO modulation set to build up some modulation. As it's all 'green' it needs breaking up a bit Peter
  11. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Dragon left a nice 3mm gap - probably due to a slight bend in the deck, so had to shim it. Quite a lot of this kit is pretty agricultural in fit
  12. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    Construction finished - should start paint tomorrow They instructions failed to mention the sides of the hulls, and there's nearly a kit's worth of sprues left - Typical Dragon.... Peter
  13. Su-85, Dragon 1/35th

    While I'm waiting for Eduard to ship a spare sprue for my FW190-D9 (i've just had the shipping notice today, with the words that fill all parcels with dread - Parcel Force), I decided to start something different I remember now why I've gone off Dragon kits - the terrible instructions and the 'bag of bit's' approach to a kit. As an example the instructions refer to the idler wheel being F19 and F20 - but there are 3 separate F sprues, and parts 19 and 20 on all of them isn't an idler wheel...... Anyway the wheels are all made up And a start has been made on the Hull with the PE grilles, and quite a lot of sanding on the join between the upper and lower hull. Peter

    Today, adding the engine bay and closing the fuselage. Being honest, i'm a bit disappointed, the fit has been somewhat 'speculative' for a lot of this and one of the fuselage halves has a slight 'bend'. However i've squeezed it together Peter
