Thread: Help what should I buy
06/12/2017 21:11:27

Buy him a Tamiya 1/35 Tiger I, early. Dark grey paint, also black and possibly brown. Sprue cutters, plastic glue (Tamiya extra thin) and some fine nail files (you’ll know the ones - you use them for your nails). That’ll get him started.


Thread: Panzer IV Ausf H, early

Hi Steve

GMTA! I’ve just done some with an acrylic pencil. I’ll show you as soon as I can - after that I over-sprayed an acrylic matt lacquer and I’ll move on to the rest of the Panzer IV once it’s fully dried.

Thanks for looking in.

Hey John; nice to have you around. See you all soon.

Hi John

I used to pre-shade my figures with the AB so I thought I’d try it again with the base colour of the Oak Leaf camouflage. I hope it works OK.

Hey Si

However shocked you may be it’s not as shocked as me. I can’t actually believe it, hence the pace. Thanks for popping by.

General filth of the insides of the Schürzen. I’ll add some matt varnish, then flip them over.

Thanks for looking in.

Pre-shading the figures with Vallejo Model Air Burnt Umber 71040

I’m still trying to re-engage with my old techniques, so this is a good test-bed as it’ll be mostly hidden.

Some weathering of the insides of the Schürzen. Some modulation, low-lighting, two types of streaking grime, rust streaks and oil splashes (so far). Maybe I’ll add an overspray of dust - not sure yet. The figures are now fully prepared for base-coat. Yay!

Thanks for looking in.

Hey Manu. I’d love it if you went back to building and painting Panzers. Great work by the way.

Great to have you around chum.

Bill 😊

Thread: Panzer IV Ausf H, early
28/11/2017 21:06:19

Hey John - thanks mate. Here’s hoping I can do an equally impressive job on these crew members, eh?

I loved that Octopus camouflage. It took ages to mask but it was a humdinger eventually. I remember now; 1) the most important part of the AFV painting is priming and 2) pre-shade with NATO Black always worked really well for me. Here I’m using RAL 7021 primer. Seems good to me.

Hi Peter

Thanks for that feedback; much appreciated. Hopefully eventually I’ll get back to that spot and even better. For the meantime I’m still rediscovering my AB technique. Currently I’m reviving some of my old paints with MIG AK Interactive stainless steel shakers - wow. They’re effective.



28/11/2017 20:09:58

Second phase of priming. This Vallejo stuff is ace, but I used some MIG grey for the figures. Knockout!

Thanks for looking in.

For Peter;

Hi Si - when you get back up from your fainting episode and read my response you’ll realise that: yes, you have entered the world of alternative reality. Bill (the paint-averse moggeller) has actually dusted off the AB and finally put paint to plastic. Gosh - I hope I don’t screw it all up.

Lovely to have you come in on the thread. Keep your eyes peeled - I guess this Panzer IV Ausf H should be done by New Year! (Judging by my usual performance I won’t be able to promise whether that’ll be 2018 or even 2020!) LOL.

Hi John; I have found that the paints that survived the worst were Citadel, after that were Lifecolor. Big LOLs - I bought the Vallejo surface primer about three years ago from my friend Tim Cooper of Affinity Models in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. He joked at the time that I’d never use it. Ha ha - I just did. When I was painting I always found Vallejo acrylics tricky, but this surface primer is a dream. Lovely - I always did like a dark grey primer before painting the AFV, so this particular paint is perfect. I wish I had some white Vallejo surface primer for the figures. The Lifecolor stuff was like cottage cheese!

Thanks for looking in. Much appreciated.
