  1. Road to Berlin 2

    Congrats that is an amazing Diorama. 1 question : Which background did you use to make the sky with clouds? Did I say that I love what you have done already? well done
  2. German WW2 Fuel Tank

    Thank you for the link I had a good read at that and found very useful indications. I am not sure yet Why the fuel barrel had a middle valve? perhaps to reach better when the fuel level was low? did they use also a top valve on the drums? I have few airfix figurine with a watering can or with pipes and I need to understand how to place them effectively... the only way is to understand the use of the different equipment.. Wehrmacht means army ok, but in the article say that the barrels they were marked differently. quote :The 200 L drums were zinc colored and, depending on who used them, had Wehrmacht, Heer, Kriegsmarine, or Luftwaffe embossed into the lids and bottoms

  4. German WW2 Fuel Tank

    Good day I am writing regarding the German Fuel Tanks of WW2, as I don't understand how they worked exactly. I know it should be very easy, but they have a kind of Valve in the center and I am struggling to identify the use... I am doing a Diorama and I want to know how I should but the barrel if vertically or horizontally, while the figurine is filling it up or draining the fuel... Thank you so much for your help

  11. Caudron Renault Cr.714 C1 How to paint camoiflage

    @VG 33 I am afraiid its too Late now. its finished.. maybe I will do some weathering. I might buy innfuture a nicer kit and do it properly... anyway when you mean 60/70% tinned. I use vallejo model air, if I thin it its too runny. Which is the tecnique to do fine lines with airbrusch? which the key steps. I removed the noozle protector and stayed as close as possible to the model. I ve an eclipse so it should be ok, Ps. I know I got lazy and I paint brushed the canopy with a bad result... but this canopy is terrible... doesnt even have lines to follow for the masking!
  12. Caudron Renault Cr.714 C1 How to paint camoiflage

    Thank you very much for the replies. I gave It a try to my First free Gand air brush experience without any masking... The result came out well in my opinion.. only thing I didnt choose so well the colors I used ! I like this plane because looks loke the citroen ID 19 of 1970 in some ways... Here the photo of my result.. I wish I chose a different green and darker brown... anyway there it is... this kit boosted 100 times my confidence in free hand airbrushing @VG 33 i follwed your suggestion now I will apply decal and airbrush future on top.. I hope the green will come out with Future...
  13. Thank you everyone for the tips! I really wanted to try to make barb wire DIY so O added It . For the damaged I ve ready that its good to use the metal of tubes like mayo. Ti give the effective of broken alluminium in the guardate After its thinned with sandpaper...
  14. Caudron Renault Cr.714 C1 How to paint camoiflage

    Thanks @VG 33 do you have a photo of the result? thanks to upload a photo I use Imgbb works super easily
  15. Thank you @Corsairfoxfouruncle I didnt think of that! some sign of engine issue and black smoke.. I just thought that they lost a piece of wing the right, tale was damaged and gunner wounded.. enough for a crashland.. maybe I am wrong as this plane was called the Flying Tank! withe bullet holes I am not too content, I used a hot needle, but ten I ve read that you should avoid it as they make mess... For the propellers the only think I knew was that if the speed was very high the propellers might have be bent in the other direction... I am not sure if its true. So help me to understand how more should I have bent the propellers? the 2 under more bent? ps. the plane was already finished when I decided to do the diorama... so I had to adapt it.. you know when you look for a model to sacrifice between those on your shelf... then it turn out a nice thing and you are stuck with that odd plane!
