  1. I'm pretty sure, for 3.50, it's pirate copy, recast of original Alpine Miniatures figure Nice build so far, Cheers!

    Best primer for using with airbrush

    I never had problems with clogging and spider webbing with the 1500, just thin it a bit more-the old rule for milk consistency. It's very forgiving and you don't have to remember precise ratios. Regards

    Mr Finishing Surfacer 1500 is best for me (I have all three-black, grey and white), thinned with Leveling thinner. I've tried Alclad, Tamiya, Vallejo, Ak..., but nothing beats the Surfacer 1500 IMHO. Very easy to use and clean, silk smooth surface and you can sand and polish it very easily. Sticks very good to photoetch, resin also.
  4. Thank you very much, guys! The only modification I did is on the spinner-I've made those fairings by cutting pieces of plastic tube, also made the small cap on the spinner's point I didn't found any aftermarket spinner of that type, which is strange.
  5. I'm presenting this recently finished Spitfire, the old but still good Tamiya Mk.Vb. The bird was piloted by Dominic "Don" Gentile, an ace with 26 victories. I added Eduard PE for the cockpit and resin door, Quickboost exhausts, RB model Hispano 20mm cannons, decals from Aeromaster. Also reworked the spinner, because it had the characteristic fairings. Painting with Tamiya and Gunze acrylics, weathering with oils and AK effects. Thanks!

  7. Thanks! Sculpting is excellent and painting it is real pleasure
  8. Equipment is ready: Cheers!
  9. Camo is almost ready
  10. Starting with the face as usual, this time I added Flat earth to the base color, for slightly swarthy skin.
  11. Hello!I'm starting new figure project, this time Navy SEAL from Vietnam era, sculpted by Vladi from Bravo-6. Excellent quality as always. I opted initially for the Tiger stripes camouflage, but the uniform cut is different, so will stay with standard ERDL. I have also small vignette in mind, with water and vegetation

    Thank you! I better positioned the body of the second soldier, now he is standing more naturally.
