  1. We've been getting some useful feedback that whilst customers generally know what the schemes they're planning to use look like, the vast majority (the silent majority?) don't know what the correct terminology is and usually don't know the proper names of the paint colours used. As such, our written format names are missing the mark for most potential customers. As a result, we're investing some time (we have no budget to pay people to do this) drawing illustrations and designing more graphic labelling for our sets. Hopefully these are a little bit more visually appealing and crucially help customers both at model shows and online simply identify the scheme they want to model and have confidence they're getting the right colours to do it. It's when you start an exercise like this that you realise how many drawings are actually required! Gulp! We hope you like them
  2. Well gents here are my efforts with the new airfix 262! Not the first finished one on the web but wanted to do it justice. Painted in colourcoats enamels from @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies Using the top notch masks from @Sean_M Lovely little kit. OOB, apart from some eduard superfabric belts and masks for the canopy. Rigging added too from uschi. Yes the engine pods are a bit of an iffy fit but nothing a model builder shouldn’t be able to sort. Quite pleased how it turned out in the end as had some dramas with varnishes. Oh also found out from @Roman Schilhart right as it was finished that this plane shouldn’t have the scissor link on the front gear leg, so please ignore or don’t put this feature on yours! Thanks to all for the support in the WIP, link at the bottom for those interested. Undersides: Internals: WIP Thanks for looking!
  3. Hi all, I looking to the collective for advice a guidance. I've been modelling on and off since the mid 1960s but I've not really considered weathering until much recently. I practice and bit and then try it out on my builds. I am now wanting to portray a Super Sabre in standard US two greens/tan/grey but where the paint has been bleached by the sun. What techniques work best for this? I am considering the following: 1. standard paint pattern but all upper paints with a dot of white or sand added, just to lighten it slightly, 2. using a flory sand to accentuate certain areas 3. use a Tamiya weathering paste set to again accentuate Would that work? I wondered about a very very light dust with a weak sand paint mixed? I'd appreciate your guidance and thoughts. Thanks. Martin
