  1. Hi Mark, OPR was done on just the tyre walls. I was going to weather the hemtt more but I decided on a minimal weathering (just using pigments) as I didn't want to screw it up, I also used pigments for the load bed. Flory washes may be better suited to aircraft as it's more for panel lines than anything else, if we're talking about the same thing. As the Flory wash is clay based you should be able to wash it off. For Mike Rinaldi, try his youtube channel, the vids show exactly how to do it https://www.youtube.com/c/RinaldiStudioPress/videos Hi Bertie, OPR is Oil Paint Rendering, using oil paints as a weathering medium. It's different to oil paint washes, have a look at Mike Rinaldi's videos, it's a facinating technique
  2. Sometimes you just have to "build out of the box" to get the mojo back Academy 1/72 HEMTT. Fantastic value kit, or it was when I bought it 18 months ago for £12. Full of details (although some of them are not that accurate) but it's a tad tricky to assemble. The tyre tread is total fiction though, they couldn't mould the real tread pattern because of IM limitations. The only extra I added is the load, I made it removeable so I can change it in the future. The dust around the tyre sidewalls was done with Mike Rinaldi's OPR technique. This was my first go at OPR and it turned out not bad, though it did take a lot of time.
  3. A situation that all cat owners will have faced at some point ...
  4. You can get recirculating air carbon filters. It was discussed on BM many years ago. Sounds like it could be a possible solution, if it still exists
  5. I have a couple of MWDs and I've been waiting for someone to trail blaze and build an MWC or D. These kits seem complex, so I'm watching with great interest
  6. I came across this yesterday, seems interesting The stuff's available in the uk, or versions of it EDIT. Yeah Stef, an unfortunate name, especially in the UK
  7. I have the same model 'in stock' for the same project, which I'll build ... someday.... I think I'll
  8. Thanks guys. Much as I thought, if it's just simple media file access then a surplus PC is as good as a fresh purchased NAS. I've seen so many articles in PC mags recently plugging NASs that i thought I'd missed something. Obviously the mags are plugging them so they can generate ad revenue to sell NASs but even so, I thought I'd missed a trick.
  9. I've been building PCs for over 25 years, so I know a bit about them but my networking knowledge is limited. I have a home network (gigabit wired cat5e) with 5 PCs on it, all PCs have full read/write permissions. That'll shock some people but for what I do with PCs, it's necessary. I have a media PC that doubles up as a server and i've been wondering for some time about a NAS. Apart from size and lower power usage, I've never really understood the benefit of a NAS over a PC. I don't need ext access (via web) to the server, I don't do torrents or large file downloads and I don't use RAID. My backups are done via USB3 ext drives. No-one else uses the network other than me. I run windows, sometimes I'll use linux but for only very specific reasons. So, am I missing something about the benefits of a NAS over a PC? For instance, PCs can hold 6 int drives whereas a 6 bay NAS can get expensive. TIA Neil
