  1. Thank you Kingman!. In effect I used Molotow 1 mm pencil but I'm not satisfied as the letters did not come out with a neat profile. The ink spread all around leaving a bad effect like spider legs! Maybe it dipend on a too matt surface? Any help?. Ciao Filippo
  2. Thank you Mike for the info’s. ciao Filippo
  3. Superlative job. I'll take it as a reference for my Scammell Pioneer. Ciao Filippo
  4. Very unusual model. Great work on weathering. What did you use for graffiti? Ciao Filippo
  5. Thank you friends! It a pity that wheels are wrong as they were to me one of the most lovely part of the kit. Unfortunately Pat Ware book is no longer avalaible. All the best Ciao Filippo
  6. Great work! The realism of grass is superlative. The tank is perfect, nice job on weathering. Nice the 251 in the foreground with that strange circular structure. An antenna?. Ciao Filippo
  7. Hi All, I really love Scammell tractors, So huge! 1/35 market offers two choices about Scammell Pioneer SV2s: Thunder Models and IGB models. In your opinion which is the best in terms of accurate details and dimensions? I notice that some SV2s had a different crane mounted on cargo bed, Any after market? Many thanks in advance. Ciao Filippo
  8. Very nice and unusual subject. I never knew it. Do you have more informations about this aircraft? Thank Filippo
  9. Thank you John and George, too kind! The newpapers come from an old Verlinden n. 12 "Ww2 newpapers, posters, instruction sheets, potraits". Very useful. Ciao Filippo
  10. Here some progress on vignette. Base was made with styrofoam. Cobblestones was cut with an X Acto blade and enlarged with a toothpick. Sewers from Miniart and Plus Models. First base color with airsprayed AK Graphite Different shades on cobblestones with Vallejo Deck Tan, Vallejo Light Mud and AK Medium Grey. Sand throught the cobblestones fixed with Vms sand and ballast freeze Some foliage here and there + dried sea grass from AK Completed base with final touch with grass and Black Humbrol on base. Hope you like. Ciao Filippo
