  1. Thank you Keith and Stef. I think I am helped by the fact that the detail on these smaller Dragon kits is usually very good. Only a brief update again, I've not had as much time recently to work on this. Basically I have completed my base weathering stages, which, as always, are as follows: All over wash of very, very thinned, with water, Revell's Acrylic Gunship Grey, applied with a medium sized soft brush and allowed to dry. A fine pointed brush was used to apply very thinned Revell's Acrylic Anthracite, in and around the details and allowed to dry. Finally, at this stage, I dry-brushed on a lightened version of Humbrol's Acrylic Desert Yellow, using an older, soft, flat brush. So this is how some of the parts look at the moment: Hopefully I will get some more time on this soon. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
  2. That is absolutely fantastic Stuart!! Beautifully painted, weathered and presented! Awesome modelling all round! Kind regards, Stix
  3. Thank you Stef. Not as quick as my first build in this GB, but I'm managing to keep it moving along. Thank you Keith! Thank you Muchmirth. Yes, I always warn others, when they are starting their first Dragon kit, to study the instructions carefully and look for any pitfalls. There can be a few!! I think I have only had one or two, out of the many Dragon kits I have built, where there were no errors or omissions in the instructions. A bit more progress from the weekend. I decided I'd play around a bit with this kit and the first thing I decided to do, was add parts of the side fenders/skirts(?). I cut parts away carefully and then thinned the exposed edges a lot: Dragon provide them as complete side lengths, as can be seen in the very first photo in my first post above, and they are quite thick. The engine compartment is mostly never going to be seen, but I decided I'd add a bit of paint anyway: You can also see I have added the PE grills. They are a bit thick, so I'll see what I can do with some darker colours and some dry-brushing. I also decided that the cable for the light, on the front is noticeably absent, so I got a drill out and some 0.3mm lead wire: And then the wire was painted: Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix

  10. Hi Stuart. Sorry for the slow replay, but thank you very much for your comments. I think the Vallejo mud products, if used carefully, really do add a touch of realism to a model. Thank you very much Model Mate. Hi Ed. Thank you very much for your comments. Kind regards, Stix
