  1. Blimey time for a very small update! I was taken out of furlough last week and dropped right in the deep end with a ton of stressful rush jobs, so been too tired to model. But got a chance to get in the shed today and finish the rust pigments on the lower body.

Thanks for looking, more soon
  2. Looking good Pete! Nice to see some primer
  3. Wow those parts together look cool, very nice painting
  4. Thanks Brian! Just for the heck of it I'm seriously considering a small snow covered base, and then possibly adding some snow and Frost effects on him as well Cheers Pete! Yeah no one can say he hasn't put the hours in!
  5. Time for an update! I've been getting the lower body rust sorted out, so it was time to grab the salt and the hairspray again. IMG_20200621_124935 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I then gave it a blast with a dark black brown and then orange as before. IMG_20200627_111406 by Nick Frost, on Flickr After washing it off I was initially a bit dissapointed as I thought it didn't look like as much paint had come through the salt as the first time, but thankfully it was just because it was wet. Once it had dried it looked a lot better as you could see more of the colour.

IMG_20200626_153643 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200626_154239 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Once that was all dry I decided to get it all together IMG_20200626_193246 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200626_193258 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200626_193308 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200626_194609 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next up I'll get the rust pigments out for the lower body, and I'll start to add some rust streaks to the whole thing with some oil paint then the whole thing can be sealed with dullcote. Thanks for looking, more soon
  6. Wow your lucky day!! Nice glad to see this underway again
  7. Cracking scene! So much to take in, really great build
  8. Nice to see it finished it looks bloody amazing! Very nice finish and weathering
  9. That sounds cool, and yeah maybe we can start a trend of apache mod builds!
  10. Yeah it's good making stuff from scratch, I used to spend a lot of time on the Maschinen Krueger forum when I was building kits, tons of cool stuff on there but I could never come up with a design I was happy with (we're always our biggest critics!) I'm fact I still have 2 academy Apache's that I got with the idea of making a super Jerry type walker with a 1/20 figure in the cockpit but just got caught up in other builds, I'll have to resurrect that idea at some point
  11. Cheers Brian! Thanks Pete, yeah that word just seemed to fit! I've done a few Ma.k models and modded most of them so do have a few choice pieces here and there old bean; but your spares box must be a bottomless pit compared to mine with all the cool builds you've squeezed out of it!
