  1. Thank you all for your kind comments. Exhaust staining was first applied with some thinned Tamiya smoke spayed onback across the wings, heavily thinned using multiple layers to build up the tone, then pastel dust was applied with a brush to deepen the centre of each stained area After market antennae woud really help with this model buy I wanted to keep it out of the box rather than spend on extras. Si.
  2. One of those models started years ago and left part built waiting for the inspiration to complete. It's the Revell kit with after market decals (I lost the kit ones!), goes together well enough and has enough detail for 1/48. I plucked up the courage to attempt the 'squiggle' colour scheme which was applied free hand with a fine line aibrush. Si.
  3. Major difference is that the Alclad product will not resist spirit based washing, it will dissolve back off, Klear seems to stay put, so if you like putting oil washes over your decalled model . . . . . Si.
  4. Thats rather nice, well done. Si.
  5. I wouldn't worry about adding a bulge, which are very slight and hardly noticeable on most real tyres, just sand a small 'flat' on the wheel (a few seconds work, rub the completed wheel on a flat piece of sandpaper) makes all the difference and avoids the 'tip toe' look that unflattened tyres give. Si.
  6. Very nice, like the tonal effect in the camo colours. Si.
  7. Great model, love the 'movement' adds a certain something. Not an easy kit to put together, you've made a great job of it. Si.
  8. Wow . . . think it's worth saying again . . WOW! Si.
