  1. stunning, simply outstanding work. Where did you get the deck crew from and are the tie-down's hand made.
  2. Spent an enjoyable hour or so last night painting Camilla's Mouth, teeth and tongue. Also painted in the rest of the leather head harness; Just a couple of touch ups required, but should be fixed with an ink wash around the leather. Next up will be the ankle jewelry.
  3. Thanks. Her tail broke off, luckily I found it in the box, so I will glue it back on once the whole thing is finished.
  4. What a difference a day makes, twenty-four little hours, my camel gloom has faded away and sunny times are here to stay - Apologies to Dinah Washington. Well I am a lot happier with the camel after last nights painting session, a myriad of sand tones, yellow tones, grey brown tones applied as glazes and i have something i like. I had to try putting some colour on the camels Armour to see how its all going to look, and the word would be impressive. Next up is her knees and hooves, mouth and teeth. About the mouth, I couldn't believe that when you look inside the mouth, RP have even sculpted the rear molars - unbelievable detail in this scale. May your brushes be ever loaded with colour and joy Steve
  5. Chair painted, good test of the 'red paint set' which is very good. just waiting for the plinth so i can put it all together.
  6. Looking a bit like a scene out of the Texas chainsaw massacre; all the main pieces primed and ready for painting;
  7. The 3 piece suite arrived yesterday, garish doesn't come close, so a 20 minute dip in AK's extreme metal cleaner (that stuff should come with a health warning - smell is horrendous and potent) left outside and then a wash in hot soapy water removed all of the decal/print on the chair. A coat of primer revealed that the pattern is actually embossed into the seat so a rub down to get everything level and then a coat of Vallejo putty, smoothed out with a brush was applied. This has since been sanded back, so ready for another coat of primer and then good to paint (red)
  8. I got him from skminiatures , it's a limited edition piece of just 300 world wide. RP models have sold every one to individuals and their dealer network Sk miniatures website
  9. Rp Models 75mm Parthia Catafratari, the design, sculpting and casting is just superb casting. A few photos below, but it has to be seen with the naked eye to appreciate the quality. Its going to be a challenge to bring out the best of the whole piece. I have also already found the adverdsary for this , so will be creating a small vignette once its all completed. Box art All parts come wrapped in zip lock bags Front Legs; Detail on the anklets; Details on rear; Riders Saddle,lots of superb casted rugs and coverings, wood looks good as well; The three main pieces together, i should say they are not glued, tacked just joined together, such is the quality of the fittting; The camels neck and head, again adorned with superb sculpting and casting; Just look at the details in the mouth, teeth and tongue; The rider comes in three main parts, to which his arms and a choice of two heads are fitted; Separate heads; Darth Vader look; Open helmet, going to take a very small file to remove the casting 'lip'; Lots of lovely cast wood and metal detail on the sheild; I cleaned up the camel and rider last night and pinned the pieces to some cork tops, so i can get them primed tonight.
  10. Handy having your own Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel (Louis) for reference; So painted up the 1/24th version; 'Actual size' In between adding the various layers of blacks/greys/whites onto 'Louis' I also got on with the pilots '1939 pattern flying boots'; Where's Your Head At? (Basement Jaxx) Need a coat of matt varnish as does louis, and the boots need some light dirt added to them.
  11. Mae west painted up last night. Also added a satin varnish to his Irvin Jacket, which was a bit worrying at first as it seemed very dark ,but over night the jacket has gone back to its original shades - phew; Palette; Mixes; Mae West;
  12. looking better now has face has 'flattened' down
  13. Elan13's superb 75mm resin figure of a WWII RAF pilot, with his obligatory dog; Box art; Superb casting; First up was his Irvin leather flying jacket, painted with a mix of various highlight and shadow washes from the AK leather set; Next up was his RAF uniform, again painted in its base colour then washes of highlights and shadows, with a finishing glaze/wash of the original colour and a final coat of Ak interactive ultra matt varnish;
