  1. Look who arrived today. Happy days! Sean
  2. Base: check. Firefly: check. Now I just need the figures to show up and and then I’ll be able to call this little scene complete until Airfix release their Cromwell. I also need to reunite the fella there with his Churchill, he’s not too sure about using a 17pdr... Sean
  3. Thanks Darryl much appreciated. So with a week off work and an unpleasant day of weather here in the wilds of Cumbria I’ve cracked on with this. The barn/outbuilding is finished and I’ve added some tufts of grass and a few spots of burnt green flocking to represent moss and other general vegetation that can appear on these sorts of buildings. The road also got some attention with various shades of grey paint before I applied a dark wash to blend it all in. I still need to add some muddy tracks onto the road and generally work on the muddy slop surrounding the road. But with another crap d
  4. As if by magic, I now have a finished section of cobbled street which is ready for paint and I also have a painted building. I took it upon myself to order a set of Gecko Models marching machine gunners to add to the scene. Sean
  5. So I’ve finished the construction of the barn/farm shed. I’ve also cut up some of the foam and glued it to the base which will hopefully provide a decent start for some cobbles. Sean
  6. So I’m calling the Firefly done and now I’ve started on the base. I’ve started off with a larger base than I normally would as I have a cunning plan to add a Cromwell to the scene when Airfix release their new one. The plan at the moment is to create a generic farm outbuilding on the outskirts of a village with a bit of mud and maybe some cobblestones. Sean
  7. So some AK Interactive Faded Green pigments arrived today (among other things...), I’m still waiting for the Mig Productions pigments to show up. So without having any prior experience with pigments I set to work having a bash with them this evening and I’m quite pleased so far if I do say so myself. And a final one with my other Sherman. The picture doesn’t show many differences between the two in their colours, but the Firefly is much more refined. Sean
  8. I ordered some AK pigments for my Sherman build and somehow this ended up in the same package Sean
  9. Thanks John, I was wondering where else I could turn the pencil to next. Sean
  10. So both track runs have been built, painted and fitted. My plan for this is to have it in a little village street diorama so I’ve weathered the track pads to represent the cobble stones wearing the chevrons back to fresh steel. I’m not entirely sure I’ve got the look just right yet so any advice would be appreciated. The pictures have shown me I still have some work to do on that folded camo net Sean
  11. Not for this one. I am aware that this tank did have them fitted but my sanity couldn’t take adding that number of tiny pieces unfortunately. Sean
  12. RFM tracks arrived yesterday, started last night and one run completed this morning. So much more user friendly than the Bronco ones even if the detail is a little softer around the track pins. But that doesn’t matter to me too much, they’re just gonna get muddy anyway Now for the other side... Sean
  13. Thanks MD. The initial paint job did have a satin finish to it, but as John said wet transfer decals need a glossy surface to avoid silvering. So the whole thing was given a coat of gloss and left to dry for a day before decals were applied. I also brushed some gloss over each decal as the Star decals carrier film have a very flat finish to them. I used a bit of Mr Mark Softener Neo to persuade some of the decals around some of the curves. Sean
  14. Well I suppose he has to get the money for Sherman kits from somewhere... Sean
  15. Don’t give him any encouragement! He’s already persuaded me to get some Mig pigments with his personal recommendations Sean
