  1. Stunning work. I love the paintwork and the weathering is quite superb
  2. Brilliant work again. Love the painting and mud effects
  3. When I first joined the site the Notifications used to make a small sound when I logged on or received a notification. I get the small red number over the bell now but don't get the little sound/beep anymore? Not important but just wondering what happened to it?
  4. Hi, I'm no expert on colour accuracy but as you say XF-62 does seem a little too green (I've been looking into this as part of my current build). Panzermeister uses the mix you suggest (XF-62 + dark yellow) for the initial basecoat, hairspray applied then he uses XF62 + wooden deck tan XF-78 for the lighter topcoat. Seems to look quite good in the video. I guess you can control the amount of dark yellow/wooden deck tan to alter the darkness/lightness as you see fit.
  5. Outstanding work Stix. I love everything about it. Beautifully finished and presented
  6. Another good choice. Will look forward to seeing it come together!
  7. Great work Milan and very nicely painted indeed. Interesting choice of model. Always good to have a kit with no trickery!
  8. Beautifully painted and weathered. Superb work
  9. Absolutely stunning piece of work.....composition, execution, build and finish. For what is quite a small scene it is packed with detail and visual interest yet not overloaded. I think the 3 figures looks just right! Superb
  10. Great work and I like all the different textures
  11. Thank you! Much appreciated. I didn't realise quite how many different conversions were undertaken of this vehicle.....a true workhorse.
  12. Thanks for the excellent info You should go on Mastermind some time! I believe Formation models used to do a 1/35 Oddball conversion though I don't think available any more: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/formations-f100-f100-oddball-sherman-conversion--237510
  13. Next step was deciding on the shade of Olive Drab. These were the paints I had all with Olive Drab on the bottle: In the end I went for Ammo Mig Olive Drab Base, Light Base and Highlights (0926, 0927, 0928). This was sprayed in very thin layers at around 18psi. I wanted to keep some element of pre shading visible but not too dark in anticipation of the upcoming weathering. Tools and the Jerry can rack painted with Vallejo and Lifecolor acrylics: Due to several decal disasters in the past I decided to invest in a set of DN Models 1/48 Allied stencil masks. Having allowed the Olive drab to harden for a few days the model was masked up. Reference photos show these vehicles had the Star in circle painted on the upper surfaces to allow for aerial recognition. Both 'broken circles' which were known as lazy stars and painted by stencil were present along with 'complete circles'. I understand the troops often painted in the gaps to form the complete circle.....for this build I'm going with the lazy star. I used Tamiya Flat white sprayed in multiple very thin layers: Still lots to do, further detail painting and interior, but gradually progressing. Thanks for looking
