  1. Sorry forgot to add this to my reply post..... on your tank tracks..... I use a base of black (GW) , a drybrush of Tinbits , followed by Boltgun silver/oily metal , then chainmail silver . Then a wash of ink watered down Devlan Mud wash is brill for this . Then pick out the details with pure silver . Do you use paint/Ink washes on your models ? If you do....all those leftover colour washes put them in a jar together and you will get a really murky, nasty colour . This is a brilliant ''dirty'' wash for all kinds of things . It works really well for weathering stuff like jackets , trousers and armour . john
  2. Hello there , A very nice model , with suitably orky writing on the sides , have you tried any weathering stuff on it , rust,dirt ect. I use Mig productions light rust , and various fading washes , its a cinch to use and not a fortune to buy ,a little goes a long way . They also produce a ''resin '' mud effect too . Also easy to use . When i get a new camera (some scumbag thought that they deserved my camera , more than me) i will post more pics . john

    Hi there , Thanks very much for the very informative link and the tips . Ok here goes .. Models i am working on Games workshop Resin Model Titan....got this for a snip , lots of hard work cleaning it up to make it look decent . Thought it would look really great with ''Super Shiny Bits'' and perhaps a little colour flip on the Sci fi weapons . I really wanted to make up a template of the unit symbol and ''ghost'' it , with layers bringing it up to a solid insignia...yes i know running before i can walk , but a exciting thought none the less . Testors ''Roswell UFO'' (the fishy shaped one) , reading through the blurb on the instruction sheet , it hints that it may have been a ''organic'' living spaceship , i wanted to try and replicate this after looking at the rainbow effect of real Fish scales , hence the alclad colour flip paint. Dragon Ferdinand Elefant 1/35th with diorama , my first plastic tank kit in donkeys years , airbrushing the camo should be a interesting experience. I am sorry i am a real novice with the airbrush , more at home with traditional brushes . But i am learning by doing. Kind regards John
  4. Well thankyou very much , i expected to be ripped apart john
