  • Some inspiration!

    I just stumbled upon this cute little build by Bengt Johansson, a fellow Swedish builder that he recently posted on IPMS Stockholms forum. I thought that it would be nice to share this beauty with you all. I find it impressive that this is done in 1:72. He warns that the last wash haven't dried just yet on the painted pictures so that's why there's a little sheen. A real masterpiece in my mind.

      Nice! I've been wanting to try Vallejo paints but hate to make the serious investment in new paints.
      If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

        Very nice, indeed!!
        I've been working with the Vallejo paints, and will say I like them a great deal. They brush well, and the Air series goes throught the airbrush very nicely.

              Oh, but this build isn't mine! I'm far from that in quality.

                I know mate...but you aren't far from that kind of finish I think. Sometimes, as I've found in the last say, two years...it's all about learning a few tricks. You need an airbrush . For a guy who pulls off what you do with brush painting, I can only imagine what you would be doing after some spraying practice.

                  Thanks! I really would like to have an airbrush but I've not room or possibillitys for a spraybox that can evacuate the "healthy" fumes n' so on. On that topic, is there some colour that you can use indoors without a great healthrisk while sprayin'?

                      Well, they say acrylics are less toxic but I still wouldn't be inhaling them if I could help it. When I rented houses, I used to just spray outside. It's not ideal but better than nothing. Nowadays I just open all three windows and wear a mask. It's the best I can do. Of course opening the windows allows all kinds of 'guests' into the room. They are then attracted to my lights...I have trouble keeping insects off my drying paint sometimes. I looked into having an extractor fan installed with some whizz-bang lights but the sparky said that the whole lower floor of our house was illegally wired. If he did what I asked, he would have been obliged to rewire the whole floor.

                        Looks bloody awful to me, way over done. I think the real masters of weathering know when to stop, not just keep doing it. No wonder it doesn't have a crew, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it when it was fired!!

                          I know what your saying mate, it does appear to look like a abandoned weapon... never see many figures "weathered" like their equipment eh!!!

                            Yeah maybe a bit over done, i was looking at my WW2 mag cover, it has
                            an US Arty piece during the battle of the Bulge, other than some snow
                            covering some of it, it looks in great shape.

                              It looks ok to me if you consider that whitewash did wear off n' by the time of spring this look was quite possible.
