  1. Wow, that is stellar work! Love the camo and weathering, I think your post-shading is pretty authentic, as far as I can tell from the photos. Congrats on a really successful build after your hiatus from modeling.
  2. Fabulous work!! I especially love your faded/weathered OD paintwork. It looks very realistic. Cheers, and thanks for sharing your work!
  3. People are people the world over. It does not matter what country you come from, or where you currently live. Human beings can often be incredibly kind, selfless, altruistic, charitable and empathic. The same people can get behind the wheel of an automobile or an airplane for that matter, and something bizarre happens to them, and suddenly they are the only people who exist or who matter on Earth. This is a human condition, not a national or racial or ethnic issue. The trick is to learn how to access our better selves more often, and to control our base desires that can be harmful to others.
  4. I normally use a toothpick with a flattened end to avoid ripping the decal. Works a charm with most washes!
  5. That looks fabulous, Dai!! Another great build! Can't wait to see it with the weathering done. The decals really did go down well, and zero silvering as well.
  6. I do love those shiny metal objects!! Looks fabulous, Dai!
  7. That's a really cool idea. As long as the decals are well-set and completely flat so as not to create any ridges. I think that would work!
  8. If you look closely at the stencils on the model on the box, you can see that they also silvered. Don't know if that was because of the way they were applied, or it is the decals themselves?
  9. Yes, your photo shows clearly what you are describing. Compared to the other decals, it's pretty bizarre. Almost as if they came from two different manufacturers... if that is even possible....?
  10. Thanks so much for the info and the picture of the bottle. Cheers, Dai!
  11. Looks very much the real deal!! Great paintwork and the cockpit is beautifully detailed. Really love following your builds!
  12. Very nice and neat prep work! What primer are you using?
