Ulf Petersen Wow, great scene Michael! (y)
The truck and the environment are awesome. For the skin parts of the figures I would recommend a stronger shading. Vallejo Fleshtone shade is a perfect product as it can be applied right out of the bottle without any mixing.

Michael Hickey Thanks Marko, I did enjoy building it all.

@Ulf, thanks for the tip, for the figures I'm still learning how to paint those. I use a Vallejo Face Painting Set to try and get the right skin colors but I'll try the Flesh tone on my next figures. Thanks for the nice words about the dio.

Kerry Cox Mike, It would be really good if you join our GB here, there are a lot of guys coming on board and we will be starting when everyone has their shit organised, like PE, decals and what not.
See you there. :)

Michael Hickey @Uncle, I thin my paint with Super Cheap Auto General Purpose Thinners. I never worry about filtering it, and after I've finished with the mixed paint I pour it from the airbrush straight back into the original paint bottle. Also after every build I'll break down my airbrush as far as it will go and put the parts in an ultrasonic cleaner that I picked up from Aldi for $50. When I first got my dual action gun my fingers used to ache until I got used to using a double action again.

@Kerry, I think I've joined the Uhu GB. I've got a Tamiya 1/48 He-219 with the Aires super detail set already, I did do a little work 15 years ago to it but I'm undoing most of what I did because it's not up to today's standard. I think I might put it on a dio in a revetment with one engine being worked on and the other engine hanging on a gantry waiting to be replaced. I might even build a third engine with the guy's in black working on her.

Kerry Cox Mike, that sounds like a good plan.
I was reading about the 1/48 Tamiya He-219's leading edge air intakes not being 'in register' and how to correct it. I will see if I can dig up the link and post it for you to read.
Yeah, the GB is kicking off as soon as everyone is fully equipped with all their needs and it should be in about a month, as I am waiting on my kit to arrive from Japan and an other bloke from Norway is in the same boat, because apparently no orders are being shipped out while the head honcho of ZM is at the IPMS Convention in the USA. :-/
So, about 3 weeks to a month Mike.

Starting together and finishing together is the plan, no rush, just having a good old chin wag and a beer. :)
Cheers. :)

Michael Hickey Awesome... I can get some research done and tinker around on my 1/35 Tamiya Panther A. The article sounds very useful, thanks Mate.
