  1. Hi long time no post. Have just been to the Bolton Show, which was great, however clumsy nugget me did not realise that my wedding ring came off. :( So if anyone finds a small silver palladium ring wedding ring, its mine and could you please let me know. Thanks in advance Knikki
  2. That is really nice figure and really well painted.
  3. ARH! Ok Thanks for the info and will go have a look at Zero paints
  4. I have had a look, but not sure if my search words are not right but anyway. Trying to kick my Model Mojo into working again, usually do planes, tanks etc but found in my stash a Tamiya F189, so thought, why not. Now I know that these types of cars have a high gloss finish on them and looking around it seems that many use enamel or lacquer based paints with some form of polishing. But I don't like these paints and use the water based acrylics, so, the question is do you still use the same combination of Gloss Varnish and Polishing to get that high gloss finish? Thanks
  5. If you can find one of these books https://www.amazon.co.uk/German-S-Boats-Shipcraft-6/dp/1848321228/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=s-boats&qid=1575979647&s=books&sr=1-3 You might find this site interesting: http://s-boot.net/sboats-kriegsmarine-types.html It has lots of info and detail on different boats and building them.
  6. Nice paint job on that Panther. Yellow is one of those colours like red very translucent so if you paint it over a very dark undercoat it takes a fair few coats to get it to the colour shade you want, I find the painting over a white base is better, but that could just be me.
  7. Not a big fan of USN aircraft but can appreciate a beautiful build and excellent paint job on a 72 scale aircraft. Rally like the cockpit detail I have in the past really struggled to get ejection seat handles on 48 scale never mind 72
  8. Do a Google and there are a couple of YouTube videos showing it taking off so I guess the answer is yes. Cracking build of such an unusual machine.
  9. Nice aircraft and build looks really good. Which one of the many Greens did you use for the upper camo? EDIT Its OK I went and read the blog post 'properly' that will learn me I'm getting the 72scale version of this, from Telford, but I think the one I'm getting has the Daimler Benz engine
  10. Other than Tamiya I am not sure. Alpine Minitures do a fair bit of German WWII including DAK http://www.alpineminiatures.com/35figures.html but they are 1/35th scale. There is the old DAK and 8th Army 32scale stuff from Airfix and or Revell which were plastic. I guess you want them for the 48th scale vehicles as not much use those links.
  11. Was at the IMPS Show on SUnday picked up: Yep is anyone remebers this is the thrid time I have got this figure. Also a couple of figures from Tommy's War range, they are really well scluputed with very small cast blocks attached.
  12. That looks really good as Giemme said you have caught the expression rather well.
  13. Hi Schwarz, Thanks for the advice, it is somehting to certainly bear in mind when I do my next figure, that I think will be a Crusader
  14. Long time no post. This is Scale 75 figure with the name of Operator 79. You don't often see him painted up and normally he is done like the box art in yellow. Mine is a little different in color . I start this, with a WIP, over a year ago, then lost momentum, mojo and any interest in him and he sat on the self all that time. Well I have got a bit of mojo back and decided to finish him. I am still learning how to paint figures, there was a lot of trail and error and while I like how he has turned out, I still need practice on many bits and pieces. Anyway here he is.
