That's not a bad idea mate. If you get the recipe right do a large batch and label up an empty paint jar. I've got a stock of empty Tamiya pots, they even sell them. When I buy new paints I always get a few. I use them for oil grime, pin wash, flesh wash (use gallons of this) , stick a Dyno label on it and Bob's your uncle, well he's not my real uncle....you know what I mean [biggrin] .

that is a good idea about making a standard "batch". I don't know if the food coloring  would break down over time being mixed with the pledge?? certainly worth a go at it. I also buy those bottles on occasion--thanks for shaking the cobwebs out of my head again!

Well there's only one way to crack an egg Ted.

The food colouring could break down.........but on the other hand it might not. Bringing science into play here, if the structure is organic then there is a strong possibility of fungal attack, to prevent that you would need to add a honey based product.

Now here's the wierd bit...it would no longer be of any use to tint the clear rod...but if you add the egg you broke earlier , put it in a pan and fry it over the model fire I would have to buld for Bob, to keep him warm, you would have a bright green sweet mushroom omelette. Nice?


Seriously, try a small sample and see what happens, although it lasted on your canopy without any bad efects.

Phew, that was tough for me to do.

She is now primed and at first glance not much filling needed. It's looking good. I wanted a slightly darker grey primer and I'm happy with the result. Didn't start off too well as I think I had the pressure a little too high and I got some spitting.




I'm not touching it now until it dries fully, I can get on and do the weapons now. Oh, and a strong cuppa (I'll turn into a tea bag, one of these days [smile])

A big thank you goes to Pete, cheers mate.[thumb]

Primer looks good Nigel, if there is any roughness, 5 minutes with a nail buffer will sort it out I'm excited to see the WnW kit too ! Did it manage to escape the dreaded VAT or are the rules for importing slightly different in Ireland to the UK ? Years ago I used to order quite a lot of kits from the Far East and for ages had no problems, until one day I got a letter saying I had a parcel to collect from the Parcel force depot, I had to pay Vat (which I had no problem with) but I wasn't happy about paying £8-00 to Parcel force for a "handling" fee I mean I drove 20 miles to collect the damn thing, they didn't even deliver it the buggers lol

It was just delivered to the door, Pete. Just had to sign for it.

Just having a quick look again, going to take loads of photographs. Think you will like it, even the instruction manual is secured in a sellophane bag.

I will try my luck nearer to Christmas and hopefully mine will slip through too, but if not from what I have seen around the net, these kits are worth the higher prices anyway, I have seen more than one modellers say that once you have built one of theses WnW kits you are hooked lol !

Yes please, take plenty of pics, I really like the model you have chosen, the framework tail and rigging is so different to the kits I normally build I can't wait to see what's in the box

Well, well, well. It seems spilt brush cleaner and canopies don't mix.

Oh dear, think I have a small problem.

Oh no ! What a nightmare,that's not a nice thing to happen. Italeri must be able to get a new canopy to you if you fire off an Email to them

Ooo...  I've had that happen once. I ended up cannibalizing another kit to replace it. That sucks. I hope Italleri can help you out.

Thanks lads,

I've sent off an e-mail to Italeri, just have to wait for their reply.

Just looking on ebay and gumtree to see if anyone has an old model that I can cannibalise.
It's a waiting game now.
My workstation has got a little over crowded, so time for a fresh layout with a larger cutting mat. All liquids on a shelf, or decanted into smaller bottles, and bring my spray area closer.
