As ever thanking everyone in advance. Regards MM. ps. I appologise if this is in the wrong forum....mods please move if you think in needs to be...

  6. Badger, That looks good. Something for me to inspire too. Thanks guys for the advice. As before I'm gonna go for Vallejo acrylics.. Thanks too nheather. Regards MM
  7. Hi Schwarz, I've got plenty of enamels but they are mostly aircraft colours and some flesh tones for my drivers, sorry pilots.... I think I'll try your suggestion and try my hand with arcylics. I take Troys suggestion and go for Vallejo. I've been doing a little research on them and they do seem pretty popular. Thanks for the advice chaps. Regards MM
  8. Hi Troy, For my 1/72 scale aircraft I have always used Halfords spray can undercoat and either Humbrol or Revel enamels brush painted with a flat brush. I'm usually happy with hte results. I have just got myself a basic air brush but my workshop/shed is being used as a store whilst the house is being renovated. Once that's back in business I'm gonna start airbrushing. Thanks for the advice Regards MM
  9. Hello Badger, Thanks for the reply and I apologise for taking so long to reply to you. I did find the Skytrex site but I could only find AoS markings for armoured divisions and I was looking specifically for infantry division AoS markings. I went with Seahawk's suggestion and ordered from Millicast. They should be here in a couple of days time. Thanks again Regards MM

I am just about to take delivery of some 1/72 scale figures in white metal and resin. for a project I'm working on. My question is what is the best type of paint for these materials enamels or acrylics.? Is there any brands that are better than the others? I am a complete novice when it comes to this type of modelling being an unashamedly naval/FAA geek. As always your assistance will be appreciated. Regards MM
