Hi Stix,

Congrats for a stunning collection of models! I said it before but I'll say it again: I just can't help being fascinated by the superb finish of your brush-painted models, it puts all of us airbrushers to shame :) Very well done :clap2:

Cheers

Jaime

Thank you very much as always Jaime - you are waaaayyy too kind and I don't think I put anyone's airbrushing skill to shame.

Great collection Stix and a tribute to brush painting - and 1/72, even though they don't look it. Great work.

Hi Ced and thank you very much but a few of them are 1/48.

This flawless perfection in your builds is truly amazing !

All great builds, my favorite is most probably the IS-2. You nailed the look of this chalked on white stripes, weathering is spot on.

Looking forward of your coming projects for 2017.

Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

Hi Bernd. Hope you are well and you and your family are enjoying a Very Merry Christmas. Thank you as always for your very kind comments.

PlaStix, wow!

I like to brush paint (mostly airbrush though), but heck, I can't match the quality you achieve. Very impressive work. I don't think any of us would have known it was brush work if you hadn't told us.

Hi Mark and thank you to for your very kind comments. :blush:

Confession time here, Stix.  I hadn't realised that in addition to your amazing armour, you also produce some great looking aircraft models. I know now!

Cliff

Hi Cliff and thank you. No problem about not realising I make some aircraft kits as well - Britmodeller is a big place and I struggle to get around to checking out everything that's happening. I know I miss loads!

I may have said this before; but your painting is excellent! These are some very well finished and realistic looking models! Fantastic work!

Hi Bengalensis and thank you - you are very kind!

 

Once again a very big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to comment in any of my threads.

 

I have now completed my MTO GB diorama and added some photos in the first post of this thread and more can be found Here 

 

Kind regards,

Super builds - I'm with you on brush vs air!

 

The Crusader looks "just right" and I loved the IS2(s) too.

 

The electric motor does a fine job of prop blurring. If it gets more popular I wonder if we will get JMNs complaining about having the wrong RPM?

 

Regards,

Adrian

Certainly leading the field with the Brush Stix hard to match that paintwork with an airbrush! Beautifully done all of them.

Hi Adrian and thank you very much - most kind! I do enjoy brush painting - I haven't got anywhere to use an airbrush but even if I did I'm not sure I would be tempted to swap - I actually enjoy the process.

And yes probably!

Congratulations on a superb collection Stix. You can be rightly proud.

Of course, I think your 'Road to Berlin' is the icing on the cake and well deserving of the Vignette GB win, but I also rate your wing-ed things extremely highly too. Your last dio (a beauty) combines both genres of course, and you've actually tempted me to try something similar! Saying as I've not made an aircraft in my entire 50yrs, I hope you realise what you're guilty of!:D

 

 

Congrats again mate.

I'm always amazed by the skill you and TonyOT have in finishing your builds with hairy sticks, a great collection you've produced in 2016. I need to go and play War Thunder now after seeing your tanks!

 

Cheers

'Stix, I've left the photos in from your original post that have taken my breath away.

 

The setting up of the diorama, and the use of b/ w photography really capture the spirit of the wartime scene.

 

I should also point out that I should have left the last photo (b/w) of the FW190 taking off ( or landing, perhaps) is also an extraordinary photo.

 

Tremendous work!:clap2:

Hi Whofan. That really is very kind of you to say. I must admit I was very pleased with the way the Photoshopped images turned out.
