    Tamiya Desert Sand XF59 used as base colour The oil paints were applied and then wiped off. Final finish done with a fan brush, a good invest me for those attempting wood grain (scale here to small for much effect) . Also very good for streaking washes when weathering Kev

    I think you're all being a trifle harsh we all had to start somewhere Well I'm saying the wreck is well ………………. wrecked Note the wooly booger has made an appearance as Demelza All that remains now is to make up the box frame as per the Puffer Thanks for stopping by Kev

    Just to prove something is happening and to give you a giggle The start of a 1/100 figure I think it's going to need a lot of imagination on your part ... This is the last part of the wreck
