You da man Pete. Acrylic wash over acrylic paint does ok I guess?

Gotta order some of that then. 

50/50 mix?

In this case yes- the Vallejo is very mellow as long as you thin it a lot-

Hey all-

I’ll probably build only one PaveHawk in my life..so I simply can’t live with the inaccurate recessed rivets. I’ve been experimenting the whole time on some mule parts to determine the best way to fill the rivets- I’ll show you that when the time comes- however, I’m confident enough in my technique to move forward with that plan.

these are Archer rivets- layed-down with MicroSol and one shot of Gunship grey over them. The macro look is rough, but they look outstanding with the naked eye-

 

cheers

 

Pete

Are you adding slings to the weapons?  Ol' boy with the water bottle may be losing his soon, plus he's flagging his bro's knees.  Maybe a short sling and hang the muzzle between his knees?  3 point sling I'm guessing, been out too long to know what the SF dudes do anymore.  I was shooting an M-16A2 with iron sights in my day so what do I know....

 

Looks sooper dooper tho.  Keep charging!

Hey Brother-

yep- a few more slings to add-

think this is too many dudes in the helo- remember there is a PJ coming up the hoist with a casualty.. could be over gross by then-

muzzle discipline by that one guy is poor-

Here's how you can tell in 1/35th scale.  

 

1. Straighten the pilot and copilot's left legs.

2. Set the tail rotor to max pitch.

 

Then after you mount the model on the stand, if it still yaws right....then yep...you gotta take some dudes out.

Even though I look forward to see what you've built next,  I just shake my head in disbelief at your level of detail when I finally see it. I then look at my kindergarten model and just wish I could detail like you Pete!
