  1. Cheers mate...but...last time I looked...it was still Ron Bob
  2. Your very welcome Chris...class will resume shortly To be fair...we are certainly not lacking in choice where metallics are concerned...I have my favourites...as do most...all are good...some are in another league...my primary need is for them to work well with the airbrush...and these AK certainly do that. Ron
  3. Cheers Rich Your correct in your assumption...also...see my tips for Chris above. Ron
  4. Thanks Chris...a lot more work to do on finishes...but pleased with it so far A tip for you...when airbrushing different shades over one another you want to keep it subtle...best way to do this...increase the distance between AB and parts ( say from 3 inches to 6 ) and move the AB across it faster...this is to prevent you completely covering the previous colour...and will give you much more subtle blends...also...do this 'wet on wet'...to allow the colours to bleed into one another...or you can let it dry over night and follow the next tip... If you want a slight 'texture' to
  5. Here ya go Tony.....https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193763588400
  6. Many thanks Poul I really like these paints...as you rightly say...very easy to use...certainly through the airbrush...I have yet to try brushing them...but expect them to perform equally well. As you know by now...using one shade is not my way...too clinical...and not how real metal looks...adding one or two other shades over the base colour produces a much more convincing finish to my eye. Yep...next up...oils .....followed by.............. Ron
  7. Thanks Malc...I am really pleased with these AK metal shades...as always...the pics don't show them at their best. With priming and base colours sorted now...updates should start to flow more frequently Thanks Mr C...I am looking forward to the next stage myself Judging by my ref pics...weathering will need to be of a more subtle nature...to properly capture the tones on this beast...as per Ferrari standards. You and me both mate...I was getting frustrated at the constant delays...weather...paints etc. The finish is all down to the q
  8. Replied on dio section but will say it here...I really do like where this is all going Nick...keep it coming mate Ron
  9. Finally got primer and some base metal shades on a number of bits and pieces over the last week... I have switched over to AK Extreme Metal paints after reading some good things about them...and the formula having been tweaked after a lot of complaints about the initial release...they certainly work very well through the airbrush...spray perfectly from the bottle...lay down very evenly...with absolutely no problems...and not a sign of 'tip dry' the whole session...just a quick flush with their same brand cleaner (a must) and away you go...all colours were sprayed at 12 psi.
  10. So many things to enjoy when you look at all you are producing In terms of 'accuracy' it all works fine to my eyes...a stunning effort in all areas...one that speaks well for the talent of it's creator...and the devil's in the details. This is a superb scene...with a real story behind it...a glimpse of days gone by. Enjoying seeing this evolve with each update. Ron
  11. You already know my feelings from your other thread Nick...but...I will say it again...superb dedication and work...has real depth and atmosphere...stunning attention to detail and realism. Ron
