I'm looking to the best job I can at replicating these antenna but I haven't got any ideas on how to recreate the base. I already have the wire and the pe base, but rather than do what everyone else does (which is stick the wire or rod to the pe) I wanted to test my skills. One idea just come to mind as I type is to dip the end of the wire in pva glue and build up the layers after each dip has dried. I don't think I will need to dip it more than twice but I'll see what happens. What ideas to you have? Oh this is 1/72 scale!
I've been reading the build reviews in several modelling mags & it often refers to 'dry brushing', especially when talking about finishing a section e.g. a cockpit. What is dry brushing? Surely when you dip a brush in paint it becomes wet (or am I just being a bit thick here?!). Perhaps it's using a dry pigment like ground up pastel or a weathering powder. Can someone please enlighten me. Thanks, Andrew (Currently saving up for a compressor so I can use my airbrush properly & finish the 1/72 Airfix Sabre that's all built, pending painting. May have to start my Airfix 1/72 Vulcan while I wait)
