Hello Alain,

 

I live very close to former soviet MiG-25 and Su-24 air base in Welzow, east Germany. If you need any detail pictures of Pag-14, just let me know ;-)

Hello Alain,

Yes, that would be greatly appreciated! Detail photos of the surface textures of the sections can be of a lot of help to me, when making masters.

 

I wonder, do they still have hardened shelters with doors in place? These would be great for dioramas, in multiple scales.

 

Thank you for the kind offer!

 

Alain

Fantastic! Looking forward to see them. If there is a way to to do some measurements for the doors it would be perfect. For example, a meter-long stick in some photos to extrapolate from.

 

Regards,

Alain

Hi all!

The artwork is coming along nicely for the hex tarmac box set. I hope it will be ready as planned next week!

 

In the meantime, here is a little tutorial showing how I painted my demonstration set.

 

First, after a good clean-up with dishwasher liquid, a coat of Tamiya TS-16. It is a light warm grey with a nice new concrete look.

Next, I scraped a bit of dry pastel on the surface, using brown, black and sand colors. Mostly brown is used here to reproduce the brownish color of the Soviet tarmac sections.

With my finger the powder is rubbed in all over the surface. I use nitrile gloves to do this.

The next step is not so obvious in photos, as it is subtle, yet important. I used a slightly humid paper towel to blend the powder in the tarmac section. This fixes the pastel dust in place, and the section will start to look like a real concrete part. You can ad more pastel dust and repeat until you get the desired effect.

At this point I add the tar joint on the sides. I used liquid tempera applied with a Q-tip. Check your references, as the joints can be very wide!

Oil drips are added here. I suggest some restraint here, and concentrate this effect only where the fuselage is situated.

This is the result, compared to the basic painted part.

Thank you for watching, hope this helps!

 

Alain

Salut Daniel,

 

Thank you for the 2 sets, I will wait for your message! No promises for Torcan yet, unfortunately...

Actually, this 1/48 set already exists, as a complete display base, and  also a PAG-14 base in 1/72:

I received the cover sheet this weekend for the new 1/32 Hex set, and I am planning the shipping for the present orders to be this coming Friday or Monday!
