  1. Dear Colleagues For several years it has become the norm for armour modellers to finish their projects with a greater or lessor degrees of rain streaks of dust and dirt. But how realistic is this look for a vehicle in action? I can find this rain dirt streaks starting to form on my car but only after it has been sitting idle for a few weeks (thank you corona virus). The slightest touch will disturb/destroy them. I know that if I view an outdoor exhibit at an AFV in a museum (don't touch) the rain mark/streaks are very eye catching. Have we got carried away thanks to
  2. I have never built anything other than military vehicles, all types. I'm now going maritime ISH. Considering its 1/72 it's quite big. My problem is how do you weather something like this? I think the main area of concern is the outer body of the hovercraft. Any advice welcome please
  3. to not pollute somebody else's WIP thread I thought I'd start a new one here! First some context: i copy/pasted everything from this thread: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235040296-panther-schmalturm/& @Das Abteilung @Soeren @ironwork @BlackMax12 @Badder @Retired Bob
  4. Hello everybody, here comes my Eduard 1/72 Hellcat. The decals are by Xtradecals and the resin flight deck is a product from redog.uk. The quality of the Eduard kit is well-known by now. Really an enjoyable built. I was at first a bit sceptical about the resin deck, but painted and weathered it looks very nice to me (and it was quite cheap compared to other producers). You can find a short WIP focussing on the painting and weathering here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079704-hellcat-eduard-172-and-resin-flight-deck/
  5. Hi everybody and welcome to another episode of "unnecessary complicated paintjobs", I haven't finished my Canberra yet (https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235067090-canberra-b1516-akrotiri-strike-wing-172/&tab=comments#comment-3566276), but decided to do something simpler and faster in between before finishing this big short-run kit. I won't bore you with the built of the Hellcat; the Eduard kit is well known and it really is a fine kit. Instead I will focus on the weathering. That is a field where I like to experiment and try out new thing even though in the
  6. Okay so now my sculpture project is done I am planning on doing another sculpture, but before that I just want to do a bit of "normal" modelling! IMG_20200511_112948 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I really like the Hi Mock, as soon as I saw it I really wanted one and after doing a build for a friend I took two of them and the weapon set as payment and they've been sat in my stash ever since. The plan for this custom build is to build it as a 1/35 mech; first time I saw one I thought it would be cool to leave off the dome head and have an exposed pilot figure, so thats wh
  7. Hallo This is my first try on this technique. Old models are my objects to try. Now, I was not very successful. Can anybody give me some hints? Happy modelling
  8. Hi, I’m getting near the end of my Tamiya 1/350 Bismarck build and need some advice. I have used a photoetch set from Eduard but have 6 pairs of steps/stairs left over and no indication of where to place them, any ideas please? Also can anyone suggest good tutorials to watch on weathering and rigging, I’ve bought an AK weathering set and Infiniti fine (70 denier) rigging. My first attempt at rigging (the KGV) wasn’t great as I used some fishing line which was too thick and didn’t stretch. Would like to do better this time! Many thanks, Ewen
  9. Hello. First, an apology of sorts – it may be that this info is elsewhere on the forum, but even having had a good look around I've been totally unable to make head or tail of the process so sorry if I'm asking someone to repeat it… The lockdown has resulted in my recent return to modelling after a 2.5 decade hiatus, and I have to say I am loving it. A bit rusty but there you go! I would be really grateful for some tips on weathering / shading – specifically using washes and powders. I have painted my model in matt Humbrol enamels (I think in hindsight / ha
  10. Hi All, Long time in the making but I finally completed this 1/72 Italeri EF-111. This was my first attempt at weathering so would love some feedback on how it looks. The model was built out of box using no extra parts since it was to be more of a training mule than serious attempt to make this kit flawless. Relatively basic weathering to start with. Model was painted then gloss varnished, After this a wash was applied using Revell weathering powders watered down the sealed in using a Matt clear coat. I also attempted some pre shading however realised I applied the dark grey on to
  11. Hey guys, This is my first of hopefully many posts and builds on this forum. I'm relatively new to modelling having only two proper model kit builds to my name. This is my latest one - The 1/35 Panther D from Tamiya. I had never weathered a model before so this was a really fun build and I feel I learned a lot. You can probably tell I went pretty heavy on the rust and that (not very realistic for a Panther in Kursk I know...) I wanted to put it up here so you gents could take a look at it and maybe tell me what to improve for next models, I'm sure there is loads of things that cou
  12. Streaking And Vertical Surfaces Brush Set (A.MIG-7604) & Dioramas & Scenic Brush Set (A.MIG-7601) AMMO of Mig Jiménez Brushes are an essential part of any modeller's toolkit, whether or not you use an airbrush for the majority of your paint application. Detail painting, touch-ups and weathering are all manual jobs that require some paint brushes, so with AMMO's goal of being able to provide specific tools and products to help us all achieve modelling nirvana, we now have a number of brushes available from them, which can be bought singly or in sets such as
  13. I finished my first tank with a heavy weathering of mainly oil washes. Can I use acrylic matte varnish on top of that?
  14. Oil Brusher Paints AMMO of Mig Jiménez Using oils for weathering effects is hardly a new technique, but it has been occasionally hit-and-miss if you happen to buy the wrong oils with gritty pigment, or forget to let the oils "breathe" on a piece of card to wick away the excess oil that slows down drying and makes it harder to achieve certain effects. The lead foil tubes and their caps can also be an impediment, as they are prone to sticking in place if not used frequently, and we have all probably twisted a tube badly whilst trying to undo it at som
  15. The Weathering Magazine - Die Cast From Toy to Model Ammo by Mig Jimenez We have now seen a few weathering magazines from Ammo and it is good to see they are keeping up the same high quality. There are 78 pages of glossy high quality paper in an A4 format, all in colour. As the title would suggest this edition concentrates on painting & weathering techniques to make your die cast models more lifelike, and less toy like. Even if you dont have any Die Casts the weathering techniques can be used elsewhere. This title features Excavators, trains, cars, trucks, figures &

  17. Hi guys. This will be my first ever Group build. I'm very excited as this will be the closest thing to the Gloster Meteor dual build I did with @TheBaron last year. I have some ideas on what I'm going to do but I need to finish of my HP o/400 first. (next few days) I'll pop a pic of the box here as a kind of popping my flag in the sand. Hopefully you can join along with this and help an old dog (or should that be cat? ) out here and there along the way. I'll pop a bit more info and some pics once the old "page turner" is done and dusted.
  18. Hello dear friends. I present you with my latest build that has been completed for the float plane group build that can be found here. (link to add) I ended up taking quit a lot more pics than needed hence this post but I though I'd share anyway. Hopefully you'll like them. We have for you today the.... Catalina PBY-5 "BLACK CAT" by Academy. She has been a venture into black paint schemes, salt weathering and many more new techniques that I'll strap in the old brain box for future builds. The WIP can be found here. WIP And the Gallery for the GB can
  19. So... I've been trying to find a stockist of Tamiya Panel Line Accents, both black and brown, and MIG Streaking Grime in the UK that doesn't charge mouth watering prices. The prices abroad seem to be far cheaper (e.g. Passion132 do MIG streaking grime for just under €4 as opposed to over £7, but unfortunately you have to factor in shipping which then kills the saving). Then I had a thought; can I not just buy a tin of Humbrol gloss enamel and thin down as required? Are the panel line washes not just extremely thinned down ordinary enamel paints? If so, then I just ne
  20. Hi, We've just received a restock from Mig.Ammo. There are a number of new products in with the general restocks. 20 new oil brusher colours, plus seven oilbrusher sets. Mig.ammo oilbrushers  - Sets & individual colours. Will hopefully have the 2 new RAF, muds and waters on the site tomorrow. Paul
  21. I've been interested in N Gauge railway modelling for many years but never really had the time or space to build a layout. It hasn't stopped me building up a good stock of rolling stock. I enjoy weathering and here is a selection of some that I've completed over the last few years. Thanks for looking. Cheers
  22. Hello I have been trying to get a bottle of Tamiya Panel Line Accent brown or black here in the UK but with no luck. Is there an alternative to this for highlighting panel lines?
  23. Ok so I am building this machine and if you look at the wing tanks they are somewhat weathered! I want to do likewise and wondered how I did this? Hair spray method? If so how do I do it? thanks Chris
  24. Weathering Aircraft Magazine - BASE Colors Ammo by Mig Jimenez I have now seen a few weathering magazines from AMMO and it is good to see the quality of both the printing and content is not falling off in any way. This issues deals with the BASE colour used on a model and how that effects the overall weathering process. It also helps when you have a model that is all over one colour, or a couple of major colours. Models covered in this issue are an F-117A, Bf 109, Red Arrows Hawk, F-14, Zero, Horten 229, P-38J; and Star Wars Starfighter N-1. The volume shows how important t
  25. Hi all, I have just finished doing some streaking (paint, not naked) with artist's oils and I still have more to do. I want to do some final weathering with pencils, pastels, etc. The question is how long do you need to wait before applying a top coat? The coat I have been paining over is gloss. The terpenoid thinner I have been using has dulled a lot of it but I am not finished yet and need to apply a final dull/matte coat.
