  7. Thanks for sharing, great weathering and very useful step by step info. Chris G.
  8. Agree, In that case I do not recommend the blue painters tape. THe sticky glue backing is to strong and will sometimes pull up model paint. I recommend something along the lines of Tamiya thin Yellow modeling tape. Also as Mark suggested above the silly putty works well also. Hope this helps. As for the order of paint, green,then brown, and then black. No need to clear coat between colors. Just let paint dry fully. Here is and example if you go the free hand route.
  9. Nato Three color paint is not hard edge, so just free hand it. Lay down a fine line on the edges with the different color then fill in the rest.
  10. Cool and Cooler. Love them both. Really like seeing the Ft-17 in U.S. markings, you do not see that done that way much. Chris G.
  11. There is something Sexy about 50's planes and cars. Must be the cool lines and fins. Great job on this one. Chris G.
  12. Glad to have you Kevin, Welcome aboard! Chris
  13. Al, great work, love the dog. Chris
  14. Richard, It depends, if the vehicle is moving around on ground that the snow & ice can be churned up and the tracks can get to the earth then a lot of mud would be on the tracks, road wheels,& underbody. If it is going across just the snow and ice then the tracks would be pretty clean except for the snow and ice it picks up in the treads and some on the road wheels.
  15. I was going to comment on the clean build,but I see now why you did it. Neat subjust and great build. Chris
  16. I made this simple base to show off my recent build. Scrap wood found in my wood shop, a little white glue and model railroad ground work and real sand, add some pigments for high lights on the ground work and done.

    Google "M915 gun truck" for images; it's an odd looking thing ... Very Strange indeed John, Looks like something out of a Mad Maxx movie.

    I haven't seen any gun trucks using the M915 as a base. That does not mean it was not done. I know Humvees and Hemtt's were turned into gun trucks.
  19. i have meet him a couple of times at AMPS shows. Great builder and wonderful modeling mind.
  20. Glad to have you here Rick,welcome aboard.
