JR - Stage!?? How many beers did you have for breakfastbeerbeerface 20. You need to speak to your carer about reducing your dosagelaugh. As for the fine paintwork I think the watered down paint was one of the issues causing the paint splats. Once the needles have arrived I will try a few things as I do like doing camo work

Jim - Great to have you back following the blog. Glad you like it. Carrying on now Sirlaughface 20yes

It's been a joy to do some catchup on your build. Your mega session ended with a wonderful rider. Sorry to hear about the issues with the white colour. Certainly looks the DB's to me. Another nightmare horse well tamed by your good self. Hopefully things will be a little bit easier soon but it really is wonderful work

A cracking start on the artillery. I have great issues with getting everything in line and square when I do artillery pieces. Any hints and tips on this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

However I had some serious issues with my airbrush. The closer I went on a low pressure the more water bursts I had. So in the end I had to go for larger higher up camo stripes. It's okay but not what I wanted. Thankfully once the painting process is over you will hardly see it anyway. However in a couple of builds time I will be doing an olive green on yellow base camo sceme which will stand out a mile. So I have ordered up 0.2, 0.3 and 0.5mm needles to see if they can help me produce fine lines with the brush. Any other ideas please let me knowyesbeer

Next will be the highlights with the original Green Brown and Iraqi Sand. Thanks for watching and now it's back to the golfyesbeer
