    LOOKING GOOD NOW, I WOULD TAKE ON DOC'S SUGGESTION OF A DARK CONTROLLED PIN WASH IN CERTAIN AREAS.

    I'm sure you dont need our advice to see what great improvement the wash does...and yet there is still place for a good darker pinwash. You're mastering the wash technique Duncan...nothing better than good old trial and error. (God knows how many models I've thrown in the bin though that way LOL)

    you think I should use a darker colour wash? I'm using burnt umber.

    I know the wash would improve it a lot.... just was a bit cautious with this being the first one.

    The base is light enough so raw umber is OK. If it was darker you can add some black...or use MIG productions custom made DARK WASH...

    Its not the colour thats the problem in this case...the method...

    Great work Duncan, as you are daring yourself and that is the only way to go up!

    Great to see Doc Roe mentoring you even before any Wing Nuts chimed in. That is what makes SSM so unique. Sound advice all the way through...weldone Doc cheers
