Welcome to the campaign where your paint brush is your best friend! The campaign will run from 1/1/15 through 30/6/15.

If you want to sign up, go here.

Time to show off those painting skills. Should be some interesting finishes!

When you refer to spray primer, does that include airbrushed primer or rattle can primer only?

Hi Brian.
To me as long as the primer is only used as a base coat how you put it on is up to you.

The hairy stick campaign is part of the "general modelling" campaigns. It just happens to be hosted in Aeroscale because so many of us here are hairy stick users. Do feel free to bring us a figure model and expose us to something new and different

Yaaaay !

Count me in please

Oh and Happy Christmas, this is my last check-in until the 27th, I'm in the middle of gift wrapping and it's 1.50 Am !

Sweaters, books, electronics, perfume ,aftershave, jewelery, bottles of booze, they all take to long to wrap.

I really think I should have bought them all 1/72nd scale models instead.

Cheerss

Just a reminder to all, this campaign is due to start on Thursday and there's no ribbon yet. Ribbons are nice for people to see so they know what they're shooting for. I know there's no way to use an actual paint brush to make one, but you can always use a brush tool in a paint program!

I like the colour choice, it shows up well on a small ribbon.
