  1. I loved model master curses to rustoleum company. consider the ak interactive real colors the supposedly do research on to match real relics to their paint the faded olive drab looks good https://ak-interactive.com/product/olive-drab-faded/ they are lacquers as well
  2. Usually with lacquers for me if you mist on the coats gradually you can avoid the crazing. I have done this with alclad with good results otoh a primer coat is very helpful in terms of imperfections and to make sure your seems are good also if you are laying down a mottled layer the primer coats are the first step
  3. Ak international real paints lacquer i use tamiya lacquer primers. When i use other lacquers kr even enamels the primer is not fir adhesion there is usually enough bite fir them to adhere. I think Revell may have used a different mold release which was a bit more oily then tamiya or hasegawa i also omitted the dawn detergent wash. The areas of the model which was primed was fine. Another great primer is kylons black fusion btw lacquer black. AK makes a beautiful paint as does mrp. I do love the color research that gies into real paint
  4. I agree they look so good but fit so poorly
  5. ak ineteractive real colors has dull dark green https://ak-interactive.com/product/dull-dark-green-fs-34092-10ml/ supposedly for the real colors they colormatch real objects. Availible from scale hobbyist and others

  8. have not used them but back in the day they were thought to be da bomb
  9. superb building skills love the oil canning effect the markings look painted so either excellent painting or decaling
  10. itis about the journey not the arrival. the hard part of it for me is when it gets screwed up( whups forget to empty the water trap or hmm should have primed the whole model not just the wings. see my posts about the revell p 51)) the effort not to slam it into a wall sometimes is immense, I have put a model on the shelf rarely but 99% of the time I have finished it. sometimes I mutter the mantra as I search for a tiny part on the floor modeling is fun repeated numerous times. I have found that the necessity of figuring out how to fix it bleeds off into life makes me more flexible
  11. your company your rules however a russian helmet to dress up my mig 29 is by the time you convert currany is $8+ usd and shipping is $14 , let's adda figure the newest one is 21 plus usd so two light weight items of 30 plus 14 shipping is $44.00 I know no one is is making me buy one but what is nice to have becomes I pass. sorry your work is beautiful but at athrid the cost of model too expensive
