  1. I received a spray booth for my birthday, and this was the first time I used it. The difference was notable. Apart from the obvious benefits to the air quality in the man cave and my lungs, the finish on the models was much improved without the oversparay floating around everywhere. The filling the small imperfections and seams with Perfect Plastic putty and Vallejo Plastic Putty was completed and let to cure overnight.The seams were then sanded down and polished to leave a perfectly scratch free finish. The Vallejo putty was used along the wing root joins and levelled down using Isopropanol

  3. Tamiya P51-D Mustang 1:48 scale Eduard Photo Etch for cockpit details. Macro shots taken in the studio with a Canon EOS M3 mirrorless compact camera to which a Canon TS-E 90mm lens and 20mm extension tube was attached via an adapter. Lit with three Canon 600ex-rt flash guns mounted inside a large softbox 600. exposure was 1/60th sec. @ f16 iso 100. The cockpit area is just over 2cm in length. My wife has always loved the P51, and Ferrocious Frankie in particular. So to keep in her good books, this one is for her. Scratches on the seat where the pilot clambers in and out were carefully mark
  4. I purchased it from a timberland store in Peterborough. I suspect it was re-badged floor polish from a well known manufacturer. I just gloop it into a large needled airbrush a give the model a few consecutive coats. It is a balance to get enough on there to flow and level out without pooling. I have actually brushed it on with some success as well.

  13. I use iModelKit to compare and mix colours. The reference for 1:48 scale effect was cybermodeler.com
  14. This is the first model that I have tried to paint using 1/48th scale paint adjustment. I have often found that the standard colours on my models look dark when used, so here are the colours I have mixed up for this Vietnam canouflage Skyraider. I just used a mix of Tamiya colours that I had on the shelf. This is the tan colour mixed for a lightening scale effect. The scale effect green. Scale effect Olive Green. And finally the underside. For the underside, I airbrushed on a very thin coat of the light grey and let it dry for a few minutes. I then sprayed about 5 thin layers
