Hello fellow Armour modelers,

Just wanting to share my latest finished project in here like I also did on all the other sites that I have been registered.

Let me know what you are thinking. And yes, there are scratches on some places and the radio antenna is a bit broken. Because of a drop when I was painting the model with my airbrush.

Besides that, the project turned out pretty well I would think.

thanks for posting! Two things I see are some of your airbrushed paint area coverage is not very opaque. Also you seem to have pretty severe decal silvering. Google this on how to avoid. My method is to apply decals on top of a gloss coat.

Thank you for replying on my post.
You are one of the few that actually is replying.
I didn't see the decals shining that much, but okay.
Would a coat of Revell enamel paint number 2 also suffice?
According to Revells description the paint is colorless and transparant?
Regarding the spraying not being to opaque, do you mean the edges around the reddish/brownish spots on the dark green?
It was also mentioned in a previous post I made, but I haven't done anything with it just yet.
But I'm willing to experiment and try new things in the future.
What do you think of the airbrushing result itself?
Such as paint coverage and color depth?
Anyway, thank you for replying.
It is much appreciated.

You don't want to know what I am thinking!

However, if you have specific questions or areas of concern it might help.

Otherwise I suggest searching for 'decal silvering'. (Hint. It does not mean 'shiny'.) Maybe general airbrush techniques or modeling guides.

But hey so far so good! What are you planning to finish it off?
