  1. Very nice. Sharp paintwork. Well done, Andy.
  2. Hi Konrad, Any updates? Andy.
  3. Thanks very much guys. Thanks Paul, The propellers are sprayed with a blue/grey Vallejo mix then lightly dry brushed with Humbrol Gold enamel. I over did it with the gold so dulled it back again with a light dusting of Vallejo dark grey. The anchor is dark grey car primer, dry brushed with Vallejo Flat Earth. Cheers, Andy.
  4. Thanks Rob. The paints are nearly all Vallejo Model Air. I have a limited range of colours so spray test cards with different mixes, adjusting them to get them as I like. The deck is a 3:1:1 mix of 71.049, 71.057 and 70.983 (Model Colour) The upper hull and conning tower is a 4:3 mix of 71.001 and 71.050. The lower hull is a 4:1 mix of 71.049 and 71.001. I find mixing from what I have is a lot easier than trying to buy exactly the right colour. Thanks very much Kev. Andy.
  5. Thanks very much for the comments guys. I sometimes look at it wondering if I've weathered it at all. Guess I've gone a little "weathering blind" or, I just don't know when to stop. I'm glad of your reassurance that it looks about right. Cheers, Andy.
  6. LOL..................Ah well, it certainly looks good at a distance. Andy.
  7. Brilliant. Love the scale shades. Andy.
  8. Beautiful, Love the paint theme. Looking forward to some close-ups. Andy.
  9. Looks very nice. Would love to see some close up pictures of the detail. Andy
  10. Thanks Greg, Know what you mean. My 1:72 Type VIIC lives on the mantle piece and has been generally accepted by the missus. This one is still on the kitchen table after two weeks. I simply don't have another display surface long enough for it. Only today, I agreed to slide it behind the sofa, out of the way, while I find somewhere. I'm hoping to do a couple of 1:350 German ships next so that should cheer her up. Most are less than 2ft long! Andy.
