    Simply the best I still rember doing wonders with a paintbrush many moons ago and now you are doing wonders with the airbrush.

    Just a beauty ...

    May I just add something not that it needs improvement just an enhancment, the sooth though you managed it right with an airbrush it just needs an extra touch to add some 'texture'.

    I would recommend that you just add a little black MIG pigments [not pastels] it would really gives that effect + the airbrush work. Just a little in the top area and feathered down, do not cover the airbrush work just enrich the middle to add that dusty effect.

    Use just a little with a paintbrush, you can then fix with water or artist whitespirit. Give it a try ...

    Last aircraft i hand brushed was last century, those were a long ago using humbrol enamels. Haven't used much the pigments and they are something new so i am a bit taken aback in using them. The greyish area in the exhausts are darker in reality. Will get the model to the club today, if nothing crops up.

    I now it was ages ago but still you marveled me how you mastered the paintwork to a prestine finish with just a brush, unlike someone out there who has a nightmare touching a brush Twisted Evil

    Guz, try using pigments - the material is very versatile and certain dusting effects surely difficult to acheive with different medium, apart they are dust!

    I think they are a valuable makeup set also for aircraft modellers much as they are for us military ...

    PROSIT and come on let us see the DAM buster, Peter Jackson [Director of LOTR and King Kong] was planning a new film about the mission ...

    What Ivan said but I would apply the pigment dry. Water or thinner would probably give you a tide mark ...

    I have just started to experiment with pastels in the end of this year, and if the pigments act similarly to them, I agree with you.

    What about an overspray of varnish.. etc... to fix? does it work


    The work on the mig is more or less the same in the last post. This year, and for all that matter, the previous 2 marked a low in production output for me. I need a got jumpstart Twisted Evil Twisted Evil , but first as a resolution for the new year, I shall, more importantly restart to attend regularly the club meetings.
