  1. Isn't nice that photobucket is totally useless now. Oh unless you want to pay the ridiculous price per month. guess that makes forums kind of useless now. 3rd party hosting was just running them into the ground, Is there an alternative to this. Cheers Murph...

    YEP i HAVE THIS KIT WAITING IN THE WINGS. I'll be starting it soon also, but the pt boat has to get finished first. Cheers Murph...
  4. Jerry I always mount my figures on a painting base, the less I handle them the better. Also may I ask if you are sealing the layers of paint I find this is the way to go when after I finish painting the layers of the figure. Adding to this I can't stress enough how important it is to use a quality Acrylic Primer that is allow to cure 24 hours before the start of painting. Cheers Murph...
  5. Jerry your blending difficulties are a matter of consistency Vallejo is very think. You have to have the consistency of paint to almost dirty water several light coats will always be better than two thick coats. This is very true when working smaller scale figures. where the consistency being to thick can be amplified. Cheers Murph...

  9. Hey thanks to all that visit the blog, I do appreciate your interest. Also thank you for all the kind comments. Here is another small update in the build as I weather. I like to start by base-coating with a good black acrylic primer by AK Interactive, this allows me to lay down and use the primer as my base shadow, I lightly go in and add tone affects in the first layer and build out from there. I then will clear coat to protect the paint before I weather, I allow the future acrylic to dry over night. I always use oil paints as my wash medium, in that way I can mix the colors the way I see fit to achieve the tone I want. I start with the worn affect over the OD paint, I use a mixture of oily steel and add to that a drop of red brown, dark gray, respectively I use a small coarse sponge to nail down the chipping worn look. There are chipping mediums that I use on occasion but they can be over done in my opinion. After the initial weathering and paint wear is to the level I desire, I then add my first layer of filter to it. For that I'll use a mixture of burnt umber two light dabs and one half dab of black to my paint well to this I add thinner turpentine if I have it, straight up enamel thinner works too, careful it is a strong mix. With a flat brush I apply the filter to the whole surface and allow this to dry. As you can see it changes the entire color pallet. I build in layers as I go to the next step. Tune in tomorrow and I'll let you know the rest LOL! Cheers Murph...

  14. Go in with some tan pigment to give it a texture, the powder will tone it back and add depth to it. then do a lite wash over it. All it needs is that added texture. Cheers Murph...
