That's a fair bit of work done Julian matey.

 

As you say very loud at the mo. but some weathering will soon tone down that garish colour.:rolleyes:

 

 

Nice looking detail there..

Thank you Frank,

Poison frog green it should be called instead of pale green. With a brownish wash and some oil dot treatment it should look very good IMHO ;)

Arghhh................................Pressure, I can't take the pressure :blink:

Let's see how this goes Kev, these colors would look good on the "great grey green greasy Limpopo River" (doing my Kipling from memory this time so disregard the typo's)

Shaping up nicely........

 

What colours are you using?

 

Kev

 

As usual a mix Kev. The deck is really Vallejo Bronze Green Primer, the putrid pale green is a Vallejo Air color and the black is Tamiya acrylic "Nato Black" which isn't much fun to apply with a hairy stick but sprays beautifully. The details are AK, MiG, Lifecolor, oils etc. Wait for the washes :blink:

Hi Gremlin56.

Wow that is some bright colour scheme.  Neat job especially with a brush.   Does it go down the sides of the Hull?

Cheers  Guy

This is looking really good will be certainly a focal point it just pops out and smacks you straight in the eyes  :hypnotised:

 

Will you be displaying the PT Boat in a similar way to your Vosper build or do you have anything else in mind  :popcorn:

Well Gremlin, I can now see what you mean about the loud Green mate.

No wonder they wore sunglasses. LOL.

 

PM you later.

Hi Keith,

Most probably just like all the other 1/35th MTB's. Dio's are not really my thing and certainly not in this size ;)

And you had to get a new toy didn`t you.

22/10 update:

After a couple of brown and grey washes and some oil dot blending the poison frog is looking suitably sun bleached. The deck houses have been fitted to the deck ready for some pin washes.

The new toy ( Badger 105 extreme Patriot) is behaving beautifully, a far superior instrument compared to the Vermillion Bird.

Time for a nice cool Grüner veltliner before dinner. Won't even bother with the Grand Prix this weekend, apparently Hamilton has engine problems again and Britney doesn't. Avoid Mercedes' like the Bubonic plague if the reliability of the F1 Mercedes is a benchmark I would say.

Cheers and Cheers ;)

Looking better for your washes etc,,,,,,

 

I'm always amazed at how neat and clean your builds look whilst on the stocks. Looking forward to further developments
