Thank you gentlemen. It's funny you know, every time I show friends or family my hobby I get "I haven't got the patience to do that". I don't think patience is actually part of it. A critical eye and an admission that you haven't done a perfect job despite it taking days and weeks or even months to get it as good as you can. Accepting your own criticism and not walling a substandard result may be the key?

I gave up trying, when I hired someone for my team, and realised I owned socks that were older than he was. I'm not kidding, I still have 3 pairs of military issue wool socks that I was issued 34 years ago.

Tim and Jimbo, this is indeed an interesting subject. It seems I am not alone! Also on my bench at the moment is a Space 1999 Eagle, a "to be assembled before being played with" toy. Far worse than the Range Rover but it was sold as such, and it's no surprise or disappointment when opened. So, the annoyance is as Tim said so perfectly, that it is sold as something it isn't. Round 2 is known, but rebranded kits from 20 years earlier only damage a brand's reputation. I have just bought and secretly (shhhhhh) started a Fujimi Lamborghini Countach which I bought specifically because it wasn't an Italari kit. Well, after viewing the contents it may as well be! The box is branded 2018 but the flash indicates a much earlier tool set! Definitely a rebrand! I have learned many useful lessons on this site and I can now add one more to the list.

Buying a model kit and voting for a politician are about the same, they both can be deceiving! LOL

Space 1999, that brings childhood memories back. I loved that series at the time, as Buck Rogers as well. Well, Peter, I am definitely looking forward to your progress on this Range Rover as the Space 1999 Eagle.
As for the discussion about the English language, and especially the Australian slang, it is sometimes hard to get for a non native English speaking, but knowing you here on SCM for quite some time, I start to read between the lines ;)
2. April, 05:36
Peter Hardy
Tim! A politician is always deceiving! A model needs to be researched properly on Scalemates BEFORE purchase! Lesson learned! We should have a catch up on Skype soon too!

Lode, I cannot paint at the moment and am building an impressive stack of plastic bits and pieces that need the stuff! The Eagle is just a soft plastic toy really, not a proper model but I will be playing around with paint and moon dust to see what can be done, just for fun! RIP Martin Landau!

I used to LOVE the Space 1999, in every way, and I also made (centurys ago), the Airfix kit, bought from England.
I wil make an album with my EAGLE. Now I decided, I have to show my great qualities at the time 😄 😄 😄,
Be careful Pete, it will be hard to beat mine😉

It would make sense, the thin coats would dry quickly and start to cure. even without curing, you can usually wipe down automotive paint with a rag damp (not soaked) with thinner not long after it is touch dry, but that fan cap definitely gets the drying process kick started.
9. July 2020, 22:38
Chaz Gordon
I'm surprised someone like Vallejo hasn't come up with a custom mixing system yet. There's only around 70 tints plus a handful of bases utilised to mix any matched automotive, aviation, standard or military colour you can think of. Micas and pearls are a little different, but that is mainly the base medium that is special. There's around 600 different colours in Vallejo's full range at the moment. Sure they could put something together
9. July 2020, 22:48
Kerry COX
The problem I see with ZERO paints and the many coats you have to apply is that the first and remaining coats never get a gloss look but the fine 'orange peel' effect, and no matter HOW many coats of clear you put over that dull finish, the OP will still be present and impossible to get rid of.
That is why I much more prefer to use Tamiya enamels, as the gloss is instant and dries rock hard.
To each his own I guess. 👍 ;)
10. July 2020, 05:12
Peter Hardy
I will have another try with Zero on another project. I have some paint sets for other builds and rather see it as a challenge. I will have a try with the Tamiya enamels as they came with the kit. More strings to bows I suppose!
