That's a work of art Stix. The whitewash effect is beautifully done and incredibly realistic. Proof that you really don't need an airbrush to create a fantastic looking model.

That, I believe, is your best yet.....I would not have believed a finish like that to be possible with 'Hairy-Stick' alone.  I can't justifiably nag you to buy an airbrush anymore, not when you can do that, without one!  :worthy:

The model has been superb !, I like a lot, apart from being a work only with a brush, incredible, nothing to envy of the ABs, and also you get very cheap (no compressor, no AB ...) ... lol .

Definitely, I have to try that Vallejo product, I have already ordered a boat, to see if I can get your snow effect, which is really convincing (at least for me).

And the final touch of the figures ... the icing on the cake, as I would like to be able to include some in my kits, but ...:rage:

:goodjob:

Cheers Stix and HNY2018 :santa:

Hi Francis. Thank you very much for your very kind comments and your support throughout the build. Yes I think it does save a bit of money not having an airbrush. As I have mentioned before I'm not sure I would like the stress of using one nor do I have a place where I can use one. Luckily I enjoy painting with brushes. The snow does seem quite a good product and, I think, looks even better in real life than in the photos.

Kind regards,

Stix

Holy crap Stix that is just epic, love how the whitewash turned, love your paint job, just phenomenal on all fronts.

Thank you very much reteip9 - you are very kind! :thumbsup:

 

At some point I am still hoping to make a base for this with a bit of a scene.

 

Kind regards,

I've done a few whitewash vehicle, I feel a bit like time team when I'm rubbing off the white to reveal the base colour. Hope you and Mrs Stix have a happy new year also.

Thank you very much Ozzy and a belated same to you and yours. I had to work out which areas had already been rubbed off as I was painting and basically not paint them. I think this is one of the difficulties of not using an airbrush and not being able to use something like the hairspray technique.

 

Kind regards,

 

Stix
