  1. Hi Giorgio. Hope you are well. I am always so impressed when I drop into your thread. Your attention to the small details takes your projects to the next level. The wheel well detailing, for example, is superb. Looking forward to seeing more. Kind regards, Stix
  2. Well done to everyone who got a build into the Gallery. And to all those still working away - keep going!!! It would be great to see all the entries finished where possible. And don't forget to vote in the poll. Just 6 more days to get your vote in. Kind regards, Stix
  3. Hi Craig and thank you. Yes the Hasegawa kit is famous for it’s issues but I'm getting there slowly - and yes, I have started some painting! Thank you very much Glynn. So I've not had chance to do anything on this during the evenings this week as Mrs PlaStix and I have had a few days away. But, following some final filling, sanding and general cleanup, I started with getting the pre-shading on using some thinned Revell's Anthracite and a very fine small paint brush. Then I used some Tamiya masking tape for curves to mark out the areas for the D-Day stripes. It's the first time I have used any and it seems pretty good for what I needed. These photos show it after I had stippled on the thinned white Humbrol Acrylic matt paint using a stippling brush: These photos show it with the masking tape removed: Then I masked off the sections for the black stripes using normal Tamiya masking tape and then stippled on thinned Revell’s Anthracite. It took several coats but, once the tape had been removed, it looked like this: Next week I can start getting the main colours on. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
