  8. Hi everyone here is one of the latest works in this pandemic period ... the starting idea was to make the Mil Mi-8 helicopter, but I must say that I got carried away and what you see is the result ...

  12. Conclusions (provisional as they may be): - I think it is safe to assume that, to preserve the detail on the FM parts, the less paint/wash/clear coats I put on before the final wash, the better - I don't think the casting of the Curio built parts is going to be very effective; if I go down the scratch building route, I'd better stick to the parts as they come out of the cutter. I will anyway do more test painting with both cut and cast parts to see where I can get, because I have the feeling that the stippling produces a somewhat more defined detail. That's it for the day, any thoughts and comments are highly appreciated ... hello Giorgio ... every now and then I appear again ... about these statements, some of my conclusions. try to build as "clean as possible" color on the primer but first, polish it as much as possible use colors with dedicated thinner up to 60% ... for Tamiyas I use 30% of X20 and 30% of leveling tinner ... it is a surfactant and the finish is always shiny, therefore less Clear / flat coat. I am attaching some photos of the Hobby Boss mil Mi-8 in 72 that I am completing ... there are about 10 coats of color and clear coats on the primer ... but the rivets I had made on the plastic are all clearly visible ... I hope I was helpful... ciao Silvano nude... with primer with color with AK washes and oils ... clear for the decals and clear satin finish details... as you can see... the level of detail remained ...
