With this guide, you can paint any olive drab-colored vehicle that operated in Europe. Although we have chosen an M4 Sherman tank as an example for this step-by-step guide, the same processes can be applied in exactly the same sequence and methods to any other US vehicle be it a truck, jeep, halftrack, or a tank or self-propelled gun. Now you just have to grab your favorite model and start painting without further delay!

Ok, if that's the definition of spamming we use here then that's fine. Large copy and pastes of product info from one manufacturer filling my news feed is certainly not the content I'm looking for and meets my "spam" bar so I'll just block that user. Apologies for the incorrect use of the report button.

2 entirely different things:
- should the user be kicked, lose his account, lose his projects, lose his stash, lose his ability to rejoin
- should the user continue doing so in this case

1: No 🙂
2: No 🙂

we will arrange this 🙂

@JL: your account is restored, in case you see any issues let me know and I'll get it sorted

@All:
- The benefits of the copy pasted text is for our scale modeling database is indeed not present. Commenting on products is of course allowed but we should not "bulk add" product info in discussions. All other threads have been invalidated. That said, no problem that this happened
- Just bare in mind that reporting a spammer (can) result in the account being "nuked". In general a "scale modeler" profile is not a spammer. (and behaviour can be fixed by discussion)

The SOLUTION BOX products are actually not "Kits" and should be created under Paints > Paint section 🙂
This allows linking the individual products contained in the set

Back to fixing some bugs; cleaning data and implementing new features

My bad - I changed the name from WIP and didn't create a new link. Try this one:

Just to make life even more difficult for you ?? About 100 of the Vallejo Model Color, 25 Model Air, 45 Game Color and 15 Game Air paints are available on Amazon Prime for £2.45 each delivered. There are also some Game Effects and Game Ink for the same £2.45 but I didn't count those. A few of these have minimum orders e.g. Iraqi Sand, 2 bottles and so on but most can be bought singly.

I did think about adding Amazon and eBay, but there can be a lack of clarity over delivery charges, combined postage, etc. In the end, I decided to concentrate on dedicated/local shops, as that is where I get my own supplies.
I have had the odd glitch with a broken item, or a faulty paint, but every time I have received excellent customer service - which is just as important.

We gotta support dedicated model stores. Now more than ever. Any hobby would suffer greatly from only being able to source stuff from Amazon. I do use Amazon for modelling stuff, but only for small stuff I can't find in a model store on these shores.

Ya I was doing Amazon for a few tools and such but the consumables like paint, primer, thinners, and such, are way cheaper at my LHS. I have three stores in my city and they are all cheaper than Amazon and between the three of them I can usually find what I need. In fact I bought a couple of things online and the pigments were rock hard and the three pack primer I bought on Amazon must have been exposed to the elements because two of the three primer shades are funky and funky now. Never again… now I buy all consumables at my LHS.
