Marc Stecher Good progress on the Beaufighter. But I am a little bit annoyed about Vallejo metallic colours. For the exhaust I wanted to use copper, came out that 3 colours from the metallic pack where spoiled. I had to throw away gold, brass and copper. So I decided to use metallic rust, wich also looks quite good, but, here came the next surprise: my Evolution airbrush with 0.4 needle kept on clogging, using my standard 20PSI. After extensive cleaning I tried more pressure, but didn´t work that well either. Finally, with the usage of Vallejo thinner, I was able to work with the colour. Seems to me as if those metallics are both, tricky to store and tricky to spray. Has anybody else had those experiences? Or, what setting do you use?
4. January 2016 at 19:28:05
Thomas Bischoff are you using Model Air? I have also problems with Model Air metallic colours - they have a strong tendency to clog the airbrush. For me thinning with distilled water works best.
4. January 2016 at 20:30:12
Marc Stecher Hi Thomas, yes, Model Air. So I am not he only one with clogging problems. ;)
Using Vallejo Thinner helped, but i will try distilled water, too, since it´s much cheaper. :) Thanks for the hint!
I also ordered a bottle of Vallejo Flow Improver and will test that one also with those metallics.
4. January 2016 at 20:47:42
Thomas Bischoff I have never used the Flow Improver and I am very interested in your experience.
4. January 2016 at 20:55:34
Marc Stecher @Thomas, so far the Flow Improver works great with the regular colours. Clogging of the gun is prevented very good and the paint does not dry too fast. A good product. But, it didn´t resolve my problems with those darn metallic colours. Wanted to spray copper the other night and the gun clogged almost instantly. Tried it pure, with thinner and flow improver with a 0.4 and a 0.6 nozzle, nothing! All resulted in a heavy cleaning operation on the guns...I don´t know what I´m doing wrong here. Pressure is around 20psi, more pressure didn´t help either.
What I recognized is, when I opened the bottle to stir the paint (a last desperate try to make it work), it stuck to the stick like mud and strange blueish fluid was in the bottle, separated from the copper pigments...could that mean, that the paint is spoiled? If yes, very annoying, because it was a new metallic colour set and 3 of the bottles show this blue fluid. :(
22. January 2016 at 15:21:32
Thomas Bischoff Marc: I think the blueish fluid is the thinner medium. I have Gold, Silver, Alu which also show the blueish colour. Unfortunately I do not have a proper solution for the clogging problem,. I have gone up with pressure to 30 psi which works a little bit better for me.
But what I use the Model Air Silver, Alu and Chrome paints most is with the brush! No kidding - works very well!
And I will get the flow improver and try it out!

Belly also finished, now the matte varnish and the last few steps like antennas and lights remain. My youngest one is already very excited about his new warbird. :)

Marc Stecher Just added the Cobra to this project. Old kit, but not much steps to do. Hopefully it will bring me back on track with fast efforts and will reignite the fire. I lost track a bit in the last few months and modelling lost priority. I guess the Actros project became to complicated and I therefore lost fun in modelling. Hopefully this one will bring it back.

1:350 USS The Sullivans DD-537 (Trumpeter 05304)1:350 USS Fletcher-class Destroyer Detail Set for Trumpeter kit (Tom's Modelworks 3557)
 
25. January 2016 at 15:32:44 Share
Steve Luckinbill Hello all.
I've started the 1/350 Trumpeter USS The Sullivans DD-537. I will be building her in a "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" diorama where the USS Johnston DD-557 of Taffy 3 commanded by LCdr Evans and his ship, charged the Japanese Center Force, during the Battle off Samar off Leyte Gulf, 23 Oct 44.
The Japanese Center Force consisted of the battleships Yamato, Nagato, Kongō, and Haruna; heavy cruisers Chōkai, Haguro, Kumano, Suzuya, Chikuma, Tone; light cruisers Yahagi, and Noshiro; and 11 Kagerō and Yūgumo-class destroyers.
When the center force was spotted by an Avenger scout plane, they were heading straight for the small force of American escort carriers, destroyers and destroyer escorts. To protect the carriers LCdr Evans laid down a smoke screen and attacked the Japanese force using the only weapons available to him. The Johnston charged the heavy cruiser Kumano, 5" main guns firing, and closed the gap to launch a torpedo attack to starboard on the Kumano. Moments later the bow of the heavy cruiser was blown off and the Johnston turned to continue the fight. The Johnston was hit shortly afterward by three battleship main guns, lost steerage and propulsion but was hidden by a rain squaw. She was able to restore one boiler and manual steerage and rejoin the fight along with the other destroyers, destroyer escorts and every plane that could be launched from the escort carriers as they were loaded.
The Johnston eventually succumbed to damage caused by Japanese destroyers and sunk with a loss of 186 men out of a crew of 327.
The diorama will consist of the Johnston at flank speed turning to port and laying a smoke screen, depicted prior to launching torpedoes to starboard..
I purchased Tom's PE set, Alliance Modelworks twin 40mm Bofors, single 20mm Oerlikon and will be purchasing 3D USN sailors from Shapeways.

I'm going to start with the base.
First, I cut out the foam for the hull with the ship leaning to starboard as she turns to port.

I then shaved out some waves and the wake swells and applied acrylic gel.

I then added paper towel and covered that with more acrylic gel. I'm using paper towel this time instead of paper strips. This should form a little better that paper. I am also using Liquitex Medium Gel, not because it's better than Golden, but because it was available at my local craft store at the time. Either product work as well.

The paper tower/paper is used to smooth out the texture of the foam. Once this dries, I will sand the surface and apply a little more gel to build up the waves.

More to come.
25. January 2016 at 15:39:24
Calvin Gifford Do you think the Liquitex would be available at most craft stores? Watching with interest - since my old Revell 'The Sullivans' only has a partial hull anyway I am thinking of chopping it off and building it waterline!
17. January 2017 at 06:22:15
Steve Luckinbill Either Liquitex or Golden should be. They are identical in chemistry and cost.
17. January 2017 at 15:32:39
Christian Bruer Hi Steve, you made a good start with the waterbase. The story behind USS Johnston and her crew is one of the most heroic acts in naval history. I'm looking forward to any progress with great interest.

Cheers, Christian
17. January 2017 at 18:49:30
Calvin Gifford Thanks Steve and good luck!

Fabian D. Yeah, it looks pretty good. But the tracks look "Hell-ish" enough... Is there a single Heller kit that has acceptable tracks?

Bart Goesaert nope, the one I know off has wheels ;)

Lex Jassies I can remember building the personel carrier variant in the 70ties. In general not a bad kit. Made it for a friend who was a driver on this AMX during his service in the Dutch army. The tracks where indeed flexible as T-wraps.

Frank Krause @Tim: I missed that part. Please help me out. How to do a collection? Didn't find that under "FAQ".
9. January 2016 at 17:57:52
scalemates Enable it via edit profile > preferences. Will add it to Faq soon
9. January 2016 at 18:04:26
Frank Krause Ok, is enabled. And now? Can't see, where I could create collections. Shouldn't there be an option, when I edit a project?
9. January 2016 at 18:55:49
scalemates you have an extra menu item pointing to Frank Krause ...there you can create collections. Assigning a project to a collection can be done from the project, as well as from the collection.

Henry Milton Completed the build. Many small and delicate parts. Replaced several items with wire. Fit was pretty good but there is flash on a great many parts and clean up is tough on the really small parts. Overall a real good build. Now for some paint.
9. June 2015 at 13:21:48
Rui S Hi Henry, nicely done, but if I may say so, :) beware with the seam lines that appear in the optics. photo 32 :S
9. June 2015 at 13:28:49
Henry Milton Good eyes. I always go over my builds after I prime them to see if I missed any seams and such. The primer helps me see lines I might miss otherwise. I still think I would have missed that one, thanks.
9. June 2015 at 23:28:46
Rui S Henry, I thought better to warn you before you start painting it. The close-up photos never lie. Glad to help :) and that you didn't mind ;)
9. June 2015 at 23:52:57
Henry Milton That is the kind of thing every modeler should appreciate. An extra pair of eyes never hurts and if you can't take a bit of advice or criticism of your work you will not get better and you have no business posting stuff on sites like this. The feedback is how you improve. Thanks again.
10. June 2015 at 11:40:52
Rui S Cheers, Henry. Totally agree.
10. June 2015 at 12:37:36
Henry Milton Gun is pretty much done, maybe a bit of tweeking the weathering and I think I saw some raw brass in the muzzle of the barrel so I need to get that sorted out. The base I one of several options I am looking at. I have figures and a nice set of ammo & crates from Resicast to work up and sort out.
26. June 2015 at 02:16:04
Ulf Petersen That looks great so far, Henry! Regarding the fact, that the ruined building results from the ongoing fighting I would recommend to put far more debris on the ground. So much that almost the whole pavement is covered.
26. June 2015 at 04:17:04
Henry Milton Thanks for the encouragement and advice Ulf. If I move forward with using this base I will look to add much more debris. The base is a resin product from Verlinden that is not really done yet and I am experimenting with this and other examples of resin bases at this point. I have all materials needed but I may save this base for a figures only vignette, we shall see.
26. June 2015 at 12:27:18
Henry Milton I will be adding the figures and gear to this scene as soon as I get my rank badges from Archer. Most kits only offer rank for 1 sleeve but the British had rank on both sleeves. Archer has a real nice set of rank from lance corporal to RSM.
25. July 2015 at 12:21:39
