I saw this build posted in the may "news" section, but it does not appear in the "step by step" video section. will it be there eventually> Thanks.

Okay so I jumped the fence and did not view the video FIRST.
Now I see the purpose of this build and I think its a great idea. I will enjoy watching.

Really enjoying the 1/72 scale Harrier build Bob. I also like the newer lead in section to the videos--nice and clean, not too long.
May sound funny but I am learning lots of techniques I guess forgot [?] as I bought my way past more meager beginnings?

I do have a "tip" to share? If you use water base paints, you can apply the paint with a brush, let it dry a very short time, then wash over the area with some IPA
to give the part a really smooth look. I've also "dipped" some painted parts in a small container of IPA before and let the part drain off to a paper towel.
Maybe a technique worth playing with? Thanks again for this series.

I had gotten behind in the episodes Bob. Looking great and the tips and techniques are rich--very rich. YES, I have seen these instructions before, but hey---there are so many steps to remember and absorb, REPETITION is key. You do that for us and we can all help ourselves by reviewing on occasion to stay in the loop. THANKS!

Just watched the episodes on painting with rattle can primer, two color camo, and gloss overcoat. Excellent points that are so important to brush painting rather than using an airbrush. Of course when I was a teen I would glob the paint on and make a proper mess!! great progression of steps and the rationale of each step.

finished the episode on decals and all related considerations. Cleaning the model, etc. How many times have I seen this information? a dozen or more I would guess. Boring? rarely.
We are creatures of forget and repetition is the solution to making each step important along the path to getting the results you want. Thanks Bob!

just caught up with you at the sludge wash. Great primer on preparing the wash and making it optimal to work with. Thanks Bob
