  1. I do my best! (in the time available!) More new ones soon (ish) Al
  2. Splendid! Top modelling skills and a really clean and professional result. Al
  3. That sounds an intriguing idea! Look forward to seeing how the figures progress. Al
  4. Hi Kev Yes we have a delightful time sampling the culinary delights of North East Cornwall! It was my intensive modelling time (getting away from the work that has to pay the mortgage!). I note that amongst your references you haven't listed Reyonlds history of Short Boats in the Med: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mediterranean-MTBs-War-Flotilla-Operations/dp/0750922745/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1505683284&sr=1-2&keywords=Leonard+C+Reynolds+mtb Al
  5. Just got back to base after jollies and looked at some of my references...you might want to reconsider crew figures if you're modelling MTB77. I can't find a duffle coat on any picture of a Med based boat (but happy to be proven wrong). It could be so easy to get carried away with this but I think the Mini Art British tank and armoured car crews and tank riders, with a bit of judicious filing and Hornet Heads, might be a good starting point: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MT35069 https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MT35078 https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MT35071 http://www.historexagents.com/#HBH/8 Al

    Good Stuff! Al

    Stew You need to paint the area where the transfer is going white and then touch up afterwards. The colours ought to show up fine. Rob I misunderstood - I didn't realise that you had printed off the transfer sheet. Have you "fixed" it with a varnish or "fix"? I'm quite excited to see how these turn out. Al

    Hi Stew What's the resolution like on the transfers? Have you printed on clear or white paper? I'm interested to see how you get on with them (I don't know of anyone else who has used them). Al

    I'm interested to see what the 3D Boats weaponry paints up like. Al

    Thanks Anthony That might be interesting for the future although this was a bit of a one-off. Al

    I'm a bit late to this party! But it's looking good. Al
  14. pyrogravure anyone?

    My original pyro' is from the '70's and currently sits in a box in the garage. Mine had a dial to control the heat which I'm not sure featured on later models..At the time they were used to assemble animate and detail plastic figures such as Historex. My recollection is that the emergence of resin parts such as heads then limited the usefulness of the pyro's. The last time I used mine, it was decidedly unsafe. Al
