    You are a master at weathering icocker, just a beautiful job!

    A side note about Tamiya paint for those who may not know, last year they changed
    suppliers, the factory that was producing their paint for years was canceled and
    they went with a new company. In the states we were unable to get any paint for
    a good 6 months. I'm guessing this is why your seeing the difference in their OD.

    Thanks Luft much appreciated ... but hej your models are so cool as well, so please do start sharing your work with us!

    Regarding Tamiya, our local supplier decided ages ago to let go, i notice that change of pigment in some recent bottles I purchased from Asia via ebay and found the colours too vivid ... pity as Tamiya paint were quite versatile!

    I still use Tamiya, but i've just started using Vallejo, which seems to be a much better pigment paint
    for brushing. Not sure yet about airbrushing tho.

    Vallejo have a range that is called VallejoAir meant for airbrush but still I prefer Tamiya ... Vallejo tend to clog a little and dry much faster then Tamiya. On the other hand Vallejo are damn good for brushwork ...

    Your Dio, has become a highlight subject into our forum. Everybody talks about it.

    Personally I LOVED your little girl with the red coat...I think this will touch everybody's heart on your show or anywhere else.

    That girl could be the little Tanya Savicheva...
