Holger Kranich Hi Mikey,

thats a sweet lil thing, hu? Have you seen in the instructions? Our mate Thomas Hartwig helped them with reference ;)
31. March at 10:10:00
10538
Michael Hickey Cool, I haven't got them yet I only ordered them this evening I got 2 for $39.99US. I'm going to put them on the back of my SLT-56 low loader, hope they both fit. ;)

Holger Kranich 2 for 40 Bucks??? Thats a bargain!!! But dont be frightened, they are really small :D

Michael Hickey Good to know, that dio will probably be after the M978 refueling the Kiowa. My M1117 is coming along really well, the base is just about finished and then I'll paint the 3 figures.

Michael Hickey Pictures of the basic layout and the concrete barriers that I scratchbuilt. Hopefully the base will be finished in a few days.

Donald Medley I've learned that if you rub the surfaces of the tires that it looks like it's been driven a little. gives it surface look, don't have to sand hard just enough to take off sheen. Like it's touched the pavement. You probably already know that.
29. March at 19:12:48
10538
Michael Hickey Hi Donald, no what I did was get my dremel out and run the sanding drum over them, what I plan to do to them next is get some fine sandpaper and smooth them out. Thanks for the advice. :)
30. March at 02:41:33
18662
Donald Medley Just thought dremel would would be a little tricky though or maybe a little to much but good idea for me to use in future. Thanks! :)
30. March at 13:07:19
10538
Michael Hickey @Donald, if you hold the dremel steady enough it works quite well.

Matthias Weiss How do you get these background pictures into your albums / projects?
26. March at 12:39:06
10538
Michael Hickey @Matthias, when your setting up your project, on the same page where it has the start date and the status of the project you'll see a button that says BROWSE, click then go get the picture just like your adding a pic to an album and press save. The picture has to be an exact size I can't remember what size that is but it tells you near the browse button. I hope I've explained it clear enough so that you understand, maybe some other mates can explain it better. :S

Michael Hickey Here's some pics of my dio base, I found the rock at the beach and thought it would make for an interesting base. I've got 1 jerry half built and when he's done I'll build the British desert rat. :)
29. August 2013 at 11:53:41

Holger Kranich Very nice idea with the rock! What have you used for the plants? Looks great! Is the sand from the beach, too?
29. August 2013 at 11:55:26
10538
Michael Hickey Thanks Holger, the grass comes in 10cm strips from Heki. I think you get about 10 strips in the packet. The sand is colored tiling grout I bought a 1kg bag for about $5.00.

Markus Kutsch Hi Michael.
Are you going to use acrylics or oils, or both ???
I think you will manage this job to paint the figures right. :)
30. August 2013 at 08:40:28
10538
Michael Hickey Hey Markus, I think I'm going to try my hand at painting the face with oils and paint the rest with acrylic. What do you use?
30. August 2013 at 08:50:47
11448
Markus Kutsch Both.
My first figures where base acrylic with oils for shades and highlights .Works very well.
Now iam trying to use only acrylics and work with glazes. Practice,practice ,practice.
I didnt choose wich way i will use as a standard for my figures.
The pershing and Ontos crew is only acrylics.
The Sherman dio Crew and M16 is oil over acrylic.
I think oil over acrylics looks smoother.
But if i see on some figures what to do with only acrylics my jaw drops.
So i didnt decided wich to use.
