  1. This is a super looking Jug, Tam!
    Nice build video.
    Welcome aboard!

  2. Welcome to this great community, Tam @fow_models
    You made an awesome entry with this Jug.
    Your videos are very instructive, well done.

  3. Fine work on your P-47 Tam!

  4. Great looking P-47, Tam (@fow_models). It's impossible to tell you had to strip the paint and start over, and for my money, nothing looks better than a P-47 in olive drab. Well done.

  5. Welcome Tam! @fow_models, Very nice work on the Jug!

  6. Great looking T bolt! Welcome aboard.

  7. Looks great! Nice paint work. Can't have too many Jugs!

  8. Nice work on this Razorback, Tam. Not one of the more overt, eye-catching colour schemes, but very nicely finished. Tidy work on the highlighting - not sure if that was using washes that you bought, or one that you made yourself, but either way, very effective.

    Just been reading your article on modelling tips, how to try and plan ahead and how oftentimes the best laid plans... etc, etc ;-). A lot of it rang true with me and as you inferred, although this website has very many talented modellers, it is never too late to write something that may benefit guys coming into this hobby for the first time.

    I look forward to seeing more of your handiwork in due course, but you've certainly got off to a great start.
