Hi Steve

That oil work has really worked on this little beauty of yours. The wash on the tyres is very effective. Very impressed.

Steve great job something to be very proud of personally I think a nice plain polished base would be the icing on the cake to really set it apart from the rest well done mate this has been a joy to follow from start to finish .

Peter - As you know its so difficult to paint at this size. Mainly getting access for the brush is the problem for me

JohnH - Cheers mate. I am hoping for good things with the dust streaking. However it will be a new method so not to sure how it will turn out. Fingers crossed

Sqd Ldr - Cheers my friend and not a brick in sightwink

Scottie - It is one of my favourite stages as everything starts coming to life

Jim - It was a new technique which certainly worked on this scale. Not sure about 1 35 but will certainly give it a goyesbeer

JohnB - Many thanks. Do you ever sculpt figures this small?

David - Cheers my friend. I will be going for a piece of slate again as this worked well with the Tigger

Si - I like to model my vehicles on my works van which is absolutely filthy and well batteredface 20

Hi Everyone

The final process was to do the dusting. I mixed up some pigments with Matt Varnish and added it to the model



BIG MISTAKE!! It set rock hard within minutes. I had to use copious amounts of turps to blend it in. Obviously this took off all the other oil work. I was gutted! However the final look wasnt too bad but I was still very disappointed that I had fallen at the final hurdle.

I painted up a piece of slate and added the title of the build from the box.

This is only my second 1 72 build and I still have a lot to learn. The whole build was a very enjoyable one and I am certainly hooked on this scale now. I just need to practice some more to get it right. At least I know to use enamel thinner next time and not varnish when doing the dust workface 20

Many thanks for all your help and support during the build. Here are the final shots
