They say a picture is worth a thousand words, or slightly less after tax.
The forum needs some colour for me to justify my ongoing spending.
It would nice to see some of the wonderful works of art from the many masters here along with others of my standard (2" paint bush, spray can whatever).

Anyone up to trying to post a new photo on Sunday.
Show us your stuff, now I'm working on, anywhere you want.
Any subject, scale or comments.
Just more photos.

Chris,
Sorry to say that with the passing of my beloved 10 years old laptop I have lost just about all my armour photos along with many others. Very sad, all that are left are on my photobucket which was not that many.
I should have just left them on my e-mail server. Rolling Eyes

Please send one again and I'll post tomorrow.
This desktop is really old, I should back it up I guess. Not sure that the floppy disc is working.
Naaa next week.

What's a "floppy" disk?

A flash drive that needs a ** CENSORED **?

Well that filter is there for good reason. We must maintain a civil forum as it is open to all age gropes (dam this smell checker).

Still we should all rise to the challenge and carry on as long as we can.
Just to be clear it is nude photos of our hobby that we are looking for to jump start the forum.

Sorry that should read "New photos"

With Vallejo - getting the consistency right (thinning) is critical.

It looks like the paint was a bit too thick.

Practice, practice, practice!

Very gentle paint removal on this one. Will get a new paint job soon.

@ burtwolf - Love the JU52! That looks great.

Perhaps at this scale mud is just a shade of paint?

Yeah I think your right. I was using just a Vallejo dark mud which is a straight paint. This stuff has bits of something in it to give it that turf effect. But the scale is such that it really doesn't show.

Thanks for comments on the ju52!!

Yep - that's more of a texturing/paint combo. Also, a bit heavy for this small of a scale.

Works great on 1/35th armor though!
