    I gave these washes a go a while back but wasn't that pleased with the result - it might have been the gloss varnish I was using but couldn't remove it easily - ended up having to use odorless thinners to take it off completely and still left tide marks everywhere. I just use oils now for washes which work well for me. It worked well on yours though... But not sure if it was the AK or the oil wash that produced the result... it's a good result however you got there. I've never tried the flory washes but they don't look that appealing. Me too. I'm getting one when it lands

    Hawker Typhoon

    That’s a great tiffy - love the streaking effects on the wings - not bad for a months work...
  5. Well done Dermo - this would have been a very challenging build - you're a braver man than me. It came out great though, well worth your efforts
  6. Definitely worth your efforts - it came out great - Well done...

    More 1/48 Fw190s

    I agree - they're a nice pair of 190's - well painted with minimum weathering - In fairness, I think the photos don't do them justice. The main issue here is light - you need a ton of light to even begin to get decent photo's - I know because it's something I've really struggled with. My method is: I have an A2 white sheet of thick paper that I rest against something (I use a fruit bowl) so it bends upwards - place the model on that and then set up 3 desk lamps with paper towels taped across the bulb - the towels defuse the light and reduce shadows. Then when you're taking the picture, make sure you're framing it correctly and most importantly make sure you're in focus. Like modelling, it's something that will improve with practice:) You could take some more photos and post them here - I'd like to see these Wurger's in their full glory. I wouldn't lose heart if your models don't get alot of attention when you post - the internet is fickle and there seems to be alot of variables - ie the time when you post, what other models are posted around the same time etc... It doesn't mean you've made a bad model I would be happy with these 190's - I'm building a tamiya 190D-9 at the moment and am enjoying it immensely

    Hobby Boss 1/48 F6F-3 Hellcat VF-9 USS Essex 1943

    Great job once again Roger - think this might be one of your best... The weathering and finishing is bang on - love the chipping and staining - looks like a well used airframe but it's not over the top - it looks very convincing - it's a top notch paint job too. All I can say is I can't wait to see the finished Eduard version Well done : )

    Airfix 1/72 Hurricane I

    Decals look like they didn't put up too much of a fight - you are nearly done - I always think it's nearly done at this stage and then spend the next 2 weeks trying to finish

    Hobbycraft 1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-11

    It's a nice model - well built and a great subject - that canopy looks great. I would echo Troy and say the best way to reduce brushstrokes marks is to use a wide brush and apply thin layers of paint, and slowly build them up, allowing each coat to dry - but with acrylics, this doesn't take long - the process is longer but you'll get a better result. Cheers

    Tamiya 1:48 Bf109G-6/R6/trop

    Awesome work... great paint job and detailing. How did you do those nav lights? They look great
  14. Quite incredible - I’m not sure scratch building gets much better than this. Great subject also. And beautifully finished. Well done
