I see there are a lot of events coming up in mainland Europe. Any recommendations? A good one to meet people and see good stuff and pick up some good gear?
6. January at 22:32:39 Share
Spanjaard I only know the ones in NL. the best one is Scale Model Challenge (Eindhoven). we have modellers all around Europe there. it lasts for two days. and in 2020 it will actually be World Model Expo.
9. January at 10:14:54
Spanjaard i know some of the people i meet in SCM also go to Telford in UK. That will be closer for you.
9. January at 10:15:32
Stuart Perry Telford is about 20 mins from home. I was there last year having a look around. Maybe we could meet up this year and get to meet a few people?
9. January at 22:13:11
Spanjaard I am sure you can find a few SCM people there :) You can check who is attending and contact them easily. this is how i have met a few great people in Utrecht and Eindhoven :) no plans for Telford yet, not exactly around the corner for me ;)
9. January at 22:32:42
Spanjaard although RAF Cosford around around the corner makes the visit more tempting ....
i think i have seen the Me-262 in Hendon 10 years ago... but i would not mind seeing it again!
9. January at 22:40:28
Stuart Perry Yep. Cosford is great. They have a model show there too. Through all the hangars. It's pretty good.
9. January at 23:08:27
Spanjaard thanks!

Can someone please tell me in detail how to get rid of ‘scratchbuilt’ please?! It’s doing my fruit in!
5. January at 10:23:01 Share
Hans Robben Add the kit to your project and I think it will be gone.
5. January at 10:30:42
Spanjaard yes, if you add the kit to the project, it will dissapear
5. January at 23:58:29
Spanjaard i see your albums have now "NO" instead of "scratchbuild". i believe it is because you created just one project, with multiple kits and assign it to the albums. since there are 2 items, even if both of 1/16, the system seems not know what scale it is, and chooses "NO" (From "No scale"?). since the album is only for a kit for what i see, you can change the project to have only that kit. and have one project per album
9. January at 10:20:08
Spanjaard you can have a look at the projects and albums of other users, so you can see how other people do it. you can also create collections, for example if you want all your military builds or all civilian builds grouped together

Mike Daniels Looks like a good result to me! Very subtle gradations.
6. January at 18:20:31
Demigod Go easy with natural metal and pigments. I recommend black basing, marble coat, blend coat for subtle variation, then thin filters with oil paint for decoloration and dirt.
6. January at 18:37:46
M M I love your work.
6. January at 18:47:16
Stuart Perry Cheers all. I did do a black gloss alklad base coat first. Also a fine gloss 'polish'. Used oil paint for dirt and pin lines. Think my thinner was too aggressive, only had white spirit. Just need to develop a gentler touch for this kind of work. I'll get there! All part of the learning process.

Alexander G. Great spectrum of painting and weathering techniques, amazing result
7. December 2018 at 06:01:51
Treehugger A few figures would go nicely with this well made model. :)
7. December 2018 at 06:07:32
Holger Kranich As i said earlier, absolute nice! One question, please. How did you do the subtle scratches on the turret, very nice visible on the turret of pic 2. ? With a panel line engraver?
7. December 2018 at 08:13:51
Stuart Perry Hi I literally use a pair of tweezers and just scratch the paint randomly. If you look st some photos from the time, the tanks are really battered!
7. December 2018 at 15:10:49
Holger Kranich Yep those battle horses where really in a mess. Except those, like the Jagdpanther, who came factory fresh under the new british Management after 1946.
7. December 2018 at 15:33:24
Andreas Koziol so fantastic! love your paintwork more and more.

Stuart Perry
Can anyone advise on getting a really good aluminium finish on an aircraft using alkalad?
I've seen people use gloss black and then polish it before applying the metallic in thin coats at low pressure? Is this the best way or does anyone have any other hints or tips or videos to share? Thanks in advance!
4. December 2018 at 22:22:32 Share
Spanjaard any imperfection (does not matter how tiny) seems to be 10 times more visible in the finish painted model... so working on the plastic and different layers, it is the key. if you really want Alclad to shine, first work on the plastic surface. make it simply perfect. then, use alclad black bright base. polish if any imperfection. Then once you see that it looks perfect go for Alclad.
5. December 2018 at 12:32:41
Stuart Perry thanks Spaniaard! Some testing to do!
5. December 2018 at 13:30:49
Treehugger Perhaps relevant (or not): Using Vallejo's acrylic metal paint on a glossy black surface, you can airbrush on a little bit of metallic paint mixed into a cup filled with thinner (mostly thinner), then airbrush on in light layers making sure it gets time to dry a little before airbrushing over again. This works! One thing I haven't mastered though, is getting that nice glossy black primer so that the primed black surface is smooth.
5. December 2018 at 13:47:04
Spanjaard Treehuger is right in regards to using light coats. That is also correct with alclad. About thinning it, well, alclad is already "airbrush ready", so no need to use more thinner ;) (it is probably less than 10% paint anyway)
5. December 2018 at 17:09:59
Holger Kranich My experiance is quite similar. Having a good, glossy surface is bloody important. I never thin Alclad, i just "spray & pray". Works in 99% of my trials. ;)
5. December 2018 at 17:17:37
Holger Kranich Btw you can even brushpaint Alclad. Then you only need many layers. But it works!
5. December 2018 at 17:20:20
Stuart Perry Thanks everyone! Much appreciated

Stuart Perry The little panzer 3 was my first ever model. almost 2 years ago. I was immediately hooked !
1. December 2018 at 08:46:21
Alexander G. Man, you definitely made your weathering homework and watched some Mig Jimenez videos :D
1. December 2018 at 10:05:27
Stuart Perry Yeah I watched a couple from a show he did, and one or two others to learn the principles. However I have developed a few techniques of my own too as I've tried and failed here and there. There's so many ways of weathering and painting. That's the bit I really love.
1. December 2018 at 18:13:37
Spanjaard it shows ;)

Stuart Perry I think I've finally finished this beast now. Its been rewarding, frustrating and educational. Hope you like it.
18. November 2018 at 13:20:46
Treehugger Lovely :) One question: Do you dare add any varnish or a coat to seal in all of the grime after adding all this nice weathering? Or perhaps, sealing the model isn't that important?
18. November 2018 at 14:09:55
Stuart Perry Hi, no i don't seal it, it doesn't need it as it's all enamel or acrylic. Even the pigment is pretty robust.
18. November 2018 at 15:26:44
Spanjaard like it? i love it. simply stunning!

16. November 2018 at 13:41:14
Stuart Perry I haven't done WIP references except on the two large trumpeter Tank builds. Im hoping to complete the 1/16 scale king tiger at the weekend so will post some further stuff next week if all goes to plan. Thanks again for your words of encouragement. Greatly appreciated.
16. November 2018 at 14:10:54
Demigod Fantastic work. You used a lot of hairspray and OPR techniques, right?
16. November 2018 at 14:27:48
Treehugger Impressive
16. November 2018 at 16:14:58
Treehugger How did you create the shiny worn metal effect? pencil?or maybe some kind of aftermarket product?
16. November 2018 at 16:18:55
Stuart Perry No hairspray. I used mig heavy chipping and worn effects. The shiny steel effect is a gunmetal pigment. Just run it on with your finger.
16. November 2018 at 18:10:07
Stuart Perry What's an OPR technique ?
16. November 2018 at 18:10:54
Demigod Oil Paint Rendering as introduced by Mike Rinaldi. He wrote a few very good books about weathering and basically uses oil paint for all the weathering effects ranging from chips to filters to dirt to everything else. I personally found it quite inspiring, even for my usual aircraft modelling.
SCM Book: TankArt

16. November 2018 at 18:53:06
Stuart Perry Great thanks, I'll look it up. But no it's all acrylic and pigments with a little oil based streaking and pin lining
