How To: Weathering with pastel chalk.

Typically I weather my models using artist pastel chalk. With the chalk you can vary the depth of your weathering. For jet exhaust I used black, brown, light gray, and a touch of blue. Using multiple colors gives a nice blended look. The [...]

So far, sort’a kinda’ ok

Ok,…it’s time-out. Here’s my work in progress; a Tamiya 1/35th 38(t) E/F. I decided to stop at this point, with very light dry brushing and pinwash. As an aside, this is a great kit, easy to handle, without lots of fiddly parts, [...]

1972 Tamiya 1/48 Ki84. Attempted stressed metal build.

Another cheap as chips kit! I grabbed this when i picked up the previous Tamiya Raiden which was also a '70's vintage kit. Being so cheap i thought i would continue my exploration of techniques and stumbled across the stressed metal look. [...]

One salty modeller!

My last post concerned my first oil and enamel washes as i am wanting to have a crack at different techniques and effects, this one concerns chipping, something that i think looks great but have been too scared to attempt. Well, time to [...]

It’s not a plane, or a ship, or …

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 [...]

Weathering, the Belgian Leopard Conversion Continues

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 [...]

“Shoes”, Unknown beach in Croatia, 1996

Now this one is a bit different. I saw a "Car with nice chick" scene at a show recently. In 1/24 scale there are very nice pin-up models available. Sitting with a T-34 with interior and a wreck on my mind i decided to create a [...]
