The camo on this 110 will be black bottom and dark green RLM 72 on top side.
I wanted to see if I could attack a uniform black belly side and Dark green top side from a different angel with a realistic weathering. I am not a big fan of pre and [...]
One area that many modelers either love or loath is getting some sort of used (and sometimes abused) look on their models. AFV modellers have been at the spearhead of weathering products and techniques for quite some time, at least that’s my opi[...]
This is an old 1/48 Esci HS-129 I'm trying some heavy wear technique's on. I scratch built an interior and gun sight based on photo's. Rescribed and riveted the airframe, and started by painting portions with Tamiya's acrylic Titanium silver. T[...]
I have a lot of modeling vices that seem to have no bounds on time and money, such as building planes, ships, armor, and the occasional car. In addition to this, my dad got me interested in model trains many years ago. Now that I am retired, I[...]
Well, I'm now getting on to my favourite stage of the build, the weathering!! There are still details to add, such as the tubular "thingies" that go on the bottom of the side skirts (can someone please tell me what they are and/or what they do!![...]

Second on my list (the Wi[...]
In times past I’ve used a silver color pencil to make wear marks on aircraft models. I was wondering if any other imodelers had done that. I had just recently had the thought to try using black in certain applications.
Over the years I've spent some time cleaning up hangars, so it is not without a certain irony I find my self spending time dirtying one up.
My affair with filth began a few weeks ago with seagulls. I found a few that still waiting in the deta[...]
I discovered this modeler by chance looking at some magazines in a bookstore in Nagoya.
Really impressive weathering job!!
