  1. People always have reasons for their actions. They may be uncomprehensible to oneself, but still...
  2. I can add that I didn't bother with any fading because that would mean trying to find a proper colour in my drawer, rather than just adding white to the base (something not possible with this spray can.) I still fell I need some weathering to be done, perhaps by sponge? I just found out about photobuckets watermark. Something will have to be done about that.
  3. Another commission for a friend. It is basically a toy that I have modded, or destroyed, depending how you see it. Getting rid of the wings simplified things a bit. Primer is some powerful plastic Primer i bought specifically for this project. (The toy is not exactly made of styrene but some other plastic i suspected could cause trouble.) On top of that i should perhaps have used white overall, but for some reason I only used it on the fin to make markings. Instead I sprayed on Citadel 'Zandri Dust' directly from the can. It didn't cover well and i had to apply many layers of paint to get an opaque surface. I tested new 0.2mm needle and nozzle in my Iwata Neo when painting the mottles. It originally is an 0.35mm AB but I bought spare parts on ebay to make on unofficial upgrade. It worked reasonably well, but then the paint was Gunze RLM82 light grun IIRC. Good paint that. The panel wash is just earth oil colour. Next session I will clean that upp.
  4. I use rubbing alcohol to remove future clear from my canopies (when I need to redo it). It works really well. So "-computer says: no" to any alcohol on futured surfaces
  5. Well, vallejo is water based, I think? Maybe you get more luck with oil based washes.
  6. Everything going up must eventually come down. Should have stuck to something in 2d, like snow mobiles.
  7. Bf109 E this time. http://theprofilepaintshop.blogspot.com/2019/05/bf109e-4-of-herbert-kijewski.html?m=1
  8. Given that the Luftwaffe did fly missions to the very end, and that the personnel was transferred to the infantry... Total breakdown only occurs when you get no orders from the top. Until then machinery turns and work is done, regardless of the situation. A similar case is ceasefires. War continues up until the agreed point, strange as it seems.
  9. If in doubt, err on the side of extra height. Back pain is totally unnecessary.
  10. A dream of mine is to get inside an A380. It won't happen though, but I am not sorry; there is no way I could endure a such long trips in a seat.
  11. https://m.facebook.com/worldwartoons/photos/a.1605956606348057/2070242116586168/?type=3&comment_id=2320430071567370&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic&notif_id=1555260075907354&ref=m_notif Wonder if we will see crew men for their tanks?
  12. Wonder what the quality is of those old kits.
