Evening Scottie,

Superb blog mate culminating in a great finish. So many bits and pieces to look at make for an interesting model.

Weathering is just right in my eyes, particularly like how the grease has come out on the fifth wheel.

Brilliant stuffbeer

Looking very posh there Mr Glovertea....I dare say the TBC would approve.

I’m assuming you applied to the ‘chairman’ for planning consent.... in triplicate? He’s a tuff fellow to pleasedisgust

Mr Race....ah I see your taking notes from the tidier memberswink 2 wouldn’t want to drop your guard, what with the likelihood of an impending spot check.

Hi Simon,

All the best for the surgery...totally understand the eye thing. I can watch the most in depth surgery shown on TV but for some reason eye stuff is a no no!

They do these ops day in day out, so sure it will go smoothlytea

Steve.....cheers buddybeer I can honesty say, seeing your builds is encouraging me to look at the way I finish my models. As for shelf queens....I have a Tamiya Tiger I in the sights for my next build. Got a couple to finish first though.

Hi Rossco....long time no see. Thanks for checking inthumbs up

A quick tickle with a brush and some burnt umber oil paint has transformed the rifle butt....

Once that drys I’ll try and create some darker streaks...


The exhausts have been brushed with a little dark rusty colour but the photo I took came out pants!

Thanks for looking

Thanks for you input thumbs up

Hooch....thank you. The rifle was painted with Vallejo English uniform and then I mixed a highlight by adding some buff. I’ve since changed it a bit.

Jim....cheers matelaugh I had heard that rumour about our Mr T.....but dismissed itwink 2
