  1. Aircraft Perfect Metal – Set 2 (CS 48) Lifecolor via The Airbrush Company We’re always on the look-out for new or better ways to recreate the shine and patina of natural metal, so my modelling ears always prick up when I hear of a new one. Lifecolor of Italy have been producing some good acrylic colours for years, and this new set contains a half dozen shades of metal colours, handily grouped together in a cardboard box to add to your collection. Each one comes in a 22ml plastic bottle with a black cap and sticky label to identify the contents. Inside the box a
  2. Lifecolor Acrylic Paints I was first introduced to Lifecolor paints by The Airbrush Company a good 8 months ago, maybe more, and as it happened had an immediate use for the colors that I received from them. Previously I'd never really heard of this Italian company's paint, although I had subconsciously taken them in on visits to the likes of ABC Modelsport. This kit was painted by the author using Lifecolor paints, and an Iwata TR-1 airbrush. A build review can be found here. The paints are available in translucent plastic bottles of a similar sh
  3. Paint Rack (Tamiya & Gunze PR002) EBMA Hobby & Craft Paint storage becomes a necessity when you accumulate more than a few dozen tins/bottles/tubs, and wall racks are a great place to store them and retain complete visibility to the contents. There are lots of brands on the market, and many of them use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) or Perspex that is laser cut to shape and can be self-assembled, which is great for keeping shipping costs to a minimum. EBMA have created their own line of racks, drawers and caddies from 6mm and 3mm MDF that are
  4. Shell Case Perfect Metal Acrylic Paint Set 1 (CS47) Lifecolor via The Airbrush Company Contains: UA786 Polished Steel Modern Shell, UA787 Lacquered Steel Late WWII German Shell, UA788 New Shell Brass Shade 1, UA789 New Shell Brass Shade 2, UA790 New Shell Brass Shade 3, UA791 Spent Shell Burned Brass I decided to test the “perfect” part of this set, as it’s always tempting to investigate an acrylic metallic to see if it’s a viable alternative to the lacquer paints I’ve used for years, but degrade and turn gritty after a while. The paints arrive in the
  5. Acrylic Primer Set (PS01) LifeColor via The Airbrush Company You may prime your models or not – it's a choice that we make with some pros and cons on either side, but generally speaking I fall into the category of being a modeller that primes my models. I feel it gives a standard colour and texture over which to paint your top coats, shows up imperfections that might need some attention, and generally gives the model a key onto which you add your next layers. This brings with it some requirements for a good primer. I prefer using a primer that is sandable, and
  6. Royal Navy WW2 Colours Lifecolor I’ve been trying these paints out now for the last couple of months so thought it was about time I wrote up the review. I won’t reiterate what Mike has already said about Lifecolor paints HERE. These two sets have been out for quite a while now, but they have only just arrived at BM’s London offices. Fortunately though, I have already used some of the colours on my builds and they do work very nicely. My normal media is enamel but every now and then I like to get the acrylics out, particularly on cold days when I can’t have the patio door open. The first se
  7. Good afternoon all, Hope you like my take on the 1/72 AModel Shavrov Sh-2 Hydroplane in Finland. AModel kits are good fun but you need a lot of patience... Kit required all parts to be removed from the runners with a razor saw, much reshaping and sanding (using wet n dry paper), and model filler smoothed flat using wet n dry paper - Preferably wet to cut down the dust debris. I used the new range of Lifecolor acrylic paints covering colors used by Finland - Brush painted as always. The big surprise for me was the decals they worked really well and even submitted my rough h
  8. It's been a quite busy week for us here @ MJW Models, with lots of new things and whatnot and I'm still not finished for the day! Price Rises - I'm sure most of you will have realised that following Brexit (no comments on it please!) and the uncertainty around it, the pound has nose dived some what which means anything imported to the UK will go up in price. It's not just Airfix that have increased prices, it looks like restocks of all the lovely stuff made in the Czech Republic has gone up to, we've certainly noticed it when restocking on the likes of Eduard, AZ Models, Special Ho

  10. Liquid Pigment Sets LifeColor I've been a LifeColor user for some years now, and I really like their handy boxsets that include pretty much all you need to accomplish a task. These new sets are a bit of a new thing however, as they profess to be "Liquid Pigments", which is a new term to me. They are odourless, and can be washed off with water if wet, or removed using a special Remover liquid once dry. This gives the modeller a lot of leeway in weathering their model, applying effects here and there, or all over and then cutting any over application back as needed. They apply on a satin or

  12. After many, many years, I have returned to modelling, and, having learnt the art of patience, do not want to make a complete bottom of my models like I used to(!) My first build will be a Revell 1/32 Spitfire Mk22/24, and I will be airbrushing for the first time. I have read reviews concerning Lifecolor acrylic paints and would like to give them a try. However, I am having a few problems deciding on certain colours and I was hoping some one might be able to help. Most of the Revell colours listed in the instructions I can source as Lifecolor paints using one of the on line comparisons that a
