Katya Hodgson Thank you!

Yeah, I added a photo at the end to show the headlight, couldn't be bothered to retake all the photos though (light was starting to go anyway).
11. July at 17:30:28
gorbygould You're certainly getting the hang of this modelling lark. Excellent result.
12. July at 14:46:18
Katya Hodgson Thank you! I feel I have made some good progress over the past year.
12. July at 16:21:04
Paul Juliano Looking nice!
12. July at 16:48:31
gorbygould I'm surprised you do so well with the basic tools you have. How are you getting on with your airbrush now?
12. July at 17:11:04
Rene Scheiblich Was about to ask a similar question. Judging by the smoothly sprayed brown and tan you seem to have got to better terms with the thinner :)

Nice job on your SU :)
12. July at 17:50:21
Katya Hodgson Thanks Paul!

Gorby, what do you mean by "basic tools" ? I'm managing ok with the airbrush but i'm honestly thinking I need a new one that's better, I just really can't afford it.

Rene, thank you. I'm still using the Vallejo Model Air paints though which don't need thinning, so technically i'm "cheating". ;)
13. July at 06:36:11
gorbygould When I've seen your work in progress photo's, many of the tools look like the sort of things I used when I was a kid, and a few months ago you mentioned that you didn't have any sandpaper, which to me is a necessity.
I'm certainly not a 'tool tart' (someone who has to have the latest tool regardless of price) but the modelling tools I now have would have been unimaginable when I was young.
It was intended as a compliment. I've seen models build by tool tarts that aren't in the same league as yours.
I use a Harder & Steenbeck Ultra airbrush which can produce decent results without having a silly price (birthday Christmas perhaps) but it looks like your doing pretty good with the one you have.
13. July at 08:44:31
Katya Hodgson Oh I see. Well I do have some sandpaper now, i'm just not sure how to use it much. I have a nail sponge that is handy for certain areas that I use. And as I use perfect plastic putty (which comes off in water) I typically don't have to sand that.

The airbrush I have been using is a presumably cheap one that came with the compressor I bought, it's finicky, and getting a bit battered.

Tim Heimer Looking good!
10. July at 12:41:04
Katya Hodgson Found some assorted stuff to stick on, gun cleaning rod, a hammer, etc. So I think i'll paint those and add them before I do weathering, along with the tow cables. :)
10. July at 12:49:11
Tim Heimer Good idea! LOL
10. July at 12:56:40
Donald Dickson II I tried to stop this in its tracks, but I see my efforts were for naught.

Its looking good! Great job overcoming the broken wheel. :)
10. July at 14:25:46
Katya Hodgson Yeah, it was a bit of a fiddle, but managed it in the end. I'll be more careful when I do the T-34/76.

Added some extra stuff I had in spares! Now it has a stowage box, a gun cleaning rod, and a HAMMER for fixing glorious soviet engineering should it break down
10. July at 14:42:45
Nathan Dempsey Coming along nicely.
10. July at 14:47:42
Katya Hodgson Added the tow cables and sealed in the decals. It's now ready for weathering and a matt coat to finish it off.

Katya Hodgson
Hey, so planning the markings for my 1/35 SU-100, and I was wondering, do you think it's ok if I spray plain red stars onto it? I ask because I think Soviet vehicles were supposed to use the white outline red star by this point, but I wouldn't be able to spray that, so I was wondering if just a plain red star would be ok.
10. July at 08:46:08 Share
Augie Well you could try spraying the white as a slightly larger star, then the red over it
10. July at 09:59:28
Munkyslut Exactly what I was about to suggest Augie, download the right sizes to make stencils to achieve just that.
10. July at 10:10:39
Katya Hodgson How would I possibly do that? I wouldn't be able to see where to position the red star.

Of course this could all be irrelevant in the end considering my seeming inability to cut out a star shape so I can make a stencil...
10. July at 10:24:41
Katya Hodgson Might just end up using decals after all. :/
10. July at 10:30:13
10. July at 10:49:21
Katya Hodgson The issue is the cutting it out rather than the template.

It's ok, I found some decals in my spares that fit. :)
10. July at 10:50:31
Munkyslut I wish sites like this existed when I was a teenager custom painting bike fuel tanks, helmets etc, would've saved loads of time!
10. July at 10:50:55
Katya Hodgson I guess I grew up with the internet, so I got used to it. ;)

I still remember VHS and Compact Cassette though! Actually own a Walkman myself. :D
