    Listen and paint you untamed puppy Laughing

    Joking apart you look like you're doing a great job and follow Alex's advice so you'll keep on the right track........well he's Doc's cousin after all that's why Doc Roe left it all in his venerable cousin's ABLE hands Laughing

    In terms of scale modelling, it is called family tree ABUSE lol!

    Turret...

    Post  Dottore on Tue Nov 24, 2009 9:10 am

    Will bring turret to me on wed before I start splashing some paint on it....

    Was actually considering subcontracting the paint job ...being such a slow worker...
    But I'll carry my cross like a good crusader and do my best to finish in time....

    Great work Alex...

    Post  Dottore on Mon Nov 30, 2009 11:44 pm

    Have to agree with the others...great OD!!!

    What mix are you using? Is it the Tamiya XF-62 OD with Dark Yellow XF60 and Yellow-green?

    One thing...the oval hatch should be completely down cos I prepared the spring attachments in the fully open position...ie the hooks on the turret side go into the spring loops on the hatch side...
    Give me a ring if you didnt get what I mean...

    Thanks for helping out cous!

    yes its the mix of old tamiya od + yellow green and a few drops or dark yellow
    held my hand on the weathering. amazing isnt it when you are doing something for others you do it with some trepidation.
