    Photoshop can do wonders with digital shots.  A little Shadows/Highlights can show all kinds of detail.  The CARC paint plays hell with the sensors and film.  I'm in the process of digitizing my shots of 58's and with some shots it's the only way to salvage the picture.


    Any 58 shots you might have, I'd love to take a look at them.

  2. Hi,


    I'm doing a bit of research on 58's.  Is there any way to get a full size shot of the OH-58D you posted in the SPEC Ops AH-6 thread?

    1/72 TAH-1G Finished

    I use pastel sticks form Hobby Lobby. I have a set that has lasted as long as i've been in the hobby and will probably be around when I'm gone. I's a set of earth tones and black and grays. I just scrape some off with an old hobby knife blade into a cup and apply dry with an old brush. I try to mix back plus several dark grays to give it a realistic look. I also learned not to spray clear on it afterwards as it really dulls it back. Yes, it can come off on your hands if you aren't careful, but it looks much more realistic. Also, it goes down well on matte finishes, not so much on gloss. Ray

    What's out there for a USN TH-57 in 1/48?

    Ok, Dutch. You are probably better off without it anyway. Ray

    Special Hobby CH-37

    John, You should have sent me a message as I have collected more CH-37 images since these old posts. Is you work in the form of a book for purchase? Thanks, Ray

    I wish they would release them all in 1/72! I have a feeling you'll see your 1/48 AH-1G before that happens though! Ray
