Mike - Thanks for the compliments! As I have stated before I really enjoy all the interchange between like minded folks . Regarding the oil cooler I sent you a PM
Cheers - Richard
Really nice detail work here Richard. However I need some education from you and others about the rationale behind spraying a kit with a metal eyes are like this and then covering it with black, when the final product will be a camouflage scheme. I'm a lot more primitive in my approach to exterior painting, since I haven't yet attempted appreciating, and shy away from natural metal finishes.
So, your comments will be most welcome. The build is coming along very well.
Rich, one would never know you went through a "crisis" in paint given the way this looks now. I love the colored elevators.
This one is fighting you all the way with the painting the scheme . However , you seem to be winning the war .
Have you tried the salt method for doing the chipping ? Haven't tried it myself yet but it seems to give an excellent result .
Great looking stuff!
As I am fairly new to advanced modeling skills (most of my youth was spent making glue bombs), I have not used any metallizers even though I have bought Testors a number of times.
Do the metallizers play well with Tamiya Acrylics? Which ones work best with acrylics, which all I used as they are water based and much easier to clean up from the airbrush. Also, what is the base for metallizers? What solvent do you use for thinning and then cleaning?
I have done a little of the salt method but would like to do more. Interesting about the use of pepper from the mill!
Thanks in advance for the info and it looks great!
