  1. thanks dudes!


    for my panel lines, after i apply future while its was still gloss i use black acrylic just brush the whole plane and wipe it off. then after i have my flat coat on i went back with oil washes of brown shades. really thinned down and applied over and over until i like what i saw.


    exhaust stain is airbrushed then some pastel to finish it off.


    all other weathering is oils sealed under the flat coat.

  2. latest figure painting, this set looked like it could make a cool scene


    dudes are all box stock. i did have extra PE medals so i used them but otherwise from the box






    painting with oils.




    second guy assembled




    heres a closer up view



  3. Beautiful Butcher Bird! The weathering is particularly impressive. Is that a reboxing of the Eduard kit, or did you add some aftermarket for those wing gun bays? GREAT looking model! Thanks for sharing!


    GIL :smiley16:


    thanks guys


    yes all the sprues said Eduard on them. though the kit doesn't include any of the P.E. from the Eduard kit.

  4. thanks dudes!


    :smiley20: Put in my vote for "A Very Nice Job" as well, especially the weathering. :smiley20:


    If you have the time could you explain a little bit about how you weathered the model? Did you paint/pencil the silver over the green or chip/wipe away the green to expose the silver underneath??


    I haven't really tried weathering any of mine yet, have read most of the magazine articles about various techniques, just haven't tried any yet. I have the Hasegawa Ki-43-I on the bench right now and am going to undercoat it with Testors Aluminum Metalizer then over coat with Tamiya IJA Green and grey, but after that I'm not quite sure how I want to weather the green to expose the metalizer. Any Ideas??





    for weathering the paint chips i paint the plane silver. then spray it with hairspray. then paint normally with tamiya paints. then you can just make the paint damp and use a toothpick to peel away the green top layer. you still will have to blend it like feather the edges in places


    for normal fading and streaks i use oil paints

  5. finished up my first large scale figure, tamiya kit built box stock. almost threw it against the wall cause I wasn't happy with it but it turned out ok in the end


    uniform is done with oil, everything else was acrylic.


    hopefully I can do better on the next one!





  6. thanks

    on this car i didn't even use primer since no filling was needed. the color is enamel from model master airbrushed on.( jar paint) the clear i used was krylon crystal clear just from the spray can.i sprayed enough coats on so the decals were "flush" then 2 extra then sand with 2000. until everything is dull. any shiny spots are low areas. then tamiya course polish and then meguires scratch x 2.0
