    Vallejo Gloss Black Primer Fail

    Hi Steve, I didn't as I've never needed to previously but it could be what this particular primer needs.

    Cheers Ratch. Yeah, think it was definitely something I did and increasingly leaning toward poor surface prep as the cause.

    Thanks for the comments all. Yeah, I think there must have been some contamination. Rest of the paint and primer remained in place. Got some alclad to try for the next project.. Cheers!

    Hello all, Managed to find time to do a bit more work on this. Just really messing about with some techniques but it's been a fun build. Used Vallejo metal varnish which looks not too bad but it's still a bit sticky after 3 weeks . Thanks for looking.

    I think there must have been some contamination as you suggest. I masked the wing walkways and they are undamaged. Ah well, will struggle on . Thanks for your comments all.

    Not to worry . Not built too many aircraft and really just working on technique with this one. The aluminium seems pretty robust. Just the primer that didn't go to plan.

    It's possible...... I did add a few drops of Vallejo thinner to the primer and paint to help it flow better. I did give the parts a quick scrub in soapy water, dried them off and then painted a few weeks later. Guess it must have been something I missed or this batch of black primer was faulty.... I'll stick to Tamiya gloss black and see how that goes. No dramas

    Hey Collin, Yeah, I primed it with Vallejo black primer then masked the black areas and sprayed the alu . Yeah, they are fine for painting details and minis.

    Just repaired the black and this happened. Sick of Vallejo airbrush paints, they are hopeless.

    After 24 hours of curing in a dry place . Guess I'll stick with Tamiya in future.

    Battle of Caen Project

    Well finished but those tin hats just look wrong. Poorly moulded by dragon I mean. I've seen a few good images of British troops in Normandy and most of those also show the helmets with nets and cammo strips. Tricky to replicate though . Will tag along if that's ok. Got a personal interest in the early Normandy campaign.

    Yeah Pat. Nasty stuff tbh. Trying to stick to less corrosive materials.
