  1. @JeroenS @beefy66 @Dads203 Thanks guys for the input, most welcome. I guess I need to experiment and see what works best for me...... I'm on Medical leave David. I needed something with the largest scale in the stash. Yep it will be incorporated into some kind of diorama / vignette (I never know the difference) Stay safe Kev
  2. Instant smell a vision Think I might have to go and buy a pack ...... Been working on the interior of the van. I'm thinking the rust effect is much better than the roof. Your thoughts?? A question for you leaned Gents. What can I do wash/colour etc to impart a dusty effect overall? Thanks for stopping by Kev
  3. Thanks for the warm welcome Folks I've been playing with rust on the inside of the roof using using AK551 Rust Effect Colours Then given a raw umber oil wash. Spots of ochre and green oils to represent plant growth Thanks for stopping by Kev
  4. Hi Folks A complete change for me with my first vehicle.... As stated above I intend to weather it though perhaps not to this extent So far going together very easily The kit comes with a spare wheel so... Top and cab temp in place Thanks for looking in Kev

  12. An area of concern has been replicating the railings. The kit consists of the teak hand rail and some knibs where the other rails go. Total height of rails 4.5mm Using my swiveling vice and peg weights I've managed to lay and glue the additional rails. No mean feat with an involuntary tremor in my hand. Calling that a result, well pleased Stay safe Kev
  13. @Dave Swindell @ArnoldAmbrose Hi guys thanks for your technical input. I'm rather thinking in terms of artistic license plus being a relaxing OOB build, sratchbuilding a 20mm square wheelhouse doesn't appeal Cheers Kev
  14. Thanks for the input guys Much appreciated Kev
  15. Just pottering along and enjoying myself..... Bridge windows are not glazed so I thought I'd try PVA + colour. Which colour do you think best? Weathering done on upper hull Props. Bronze plus verdis and black wash I've been playing with fenders. Kit supplied look like inflatable rings Take care and stay safe Kev

  18. Nice one Mate! Up there with your usual class Hope you enjoy York Stay safe Kev
  19. Do you think I can get a prescription for that malaise .... As the man said the inside of the bulwarks were bare, couldn't let it pass. So numerous 0.3 sq bits of plastic later Then the application of hull colour black grey. I feel pure black is to strong at this scale Deck green Thanks for all the kind comments and likes Stay safe Kev
