Teaching an old dog new tricks

May 6, 2022 · in Figures · 11 · 0.9K

After spending many years building cars, ships and aircraft models using enamel and lacquer paints, I finally decided to try my hand at using acrylic paints. I also decided to re-learn how to paint with a brush once more. Though I feel I have a ways to go, I feel I am getting better with each new project...and I am having a great time learning this new world while expanding my skill set.

  1. Beautiful work as always, Jack! Can't wait to see the latest one in person next time I'm out your way.

  2. Hey Jack- Those are greatbust/aircraft combinations- can you tell us what brand/scale(the bust) they are?

  3. Superb jobs, Jack!

  4. Great display Jack. i had to re-learn painting with acrylics too .Once one learns how to use them, they become the way to go. It takes a while though... and so much easier in clean up too.

  5. Great results, Jack @camaro1
    A superb idea to have the pilot combined with his aircraft.

    Fantastic painted figure!

  7. Great job, for sure!

  8. Great work, Jack. Excellent figures especially.

  9. These are great, Jack, you’re still a puppy at heart. Any chance of doing a racing driver. I’m thinking James Hunt sitting on the rear wheel of his McLaren having a quick smoke...

  10. Looking great!
