I know what you mean Nigel. I have to keep going into my closet for supplies and the desk is getting crowded. I need to craft up some shelves for my workspace.

I can understand that. I built a more permanent station and now it's time to get it working properly.

I know it may sound wierd, it's as if certain items want to be somewhere else. Time for re-design. I do like the idea of having the airbrush close at hand, I will be able to use it more.

Unlucky Nigel, a real bummer. I have the same problem ...nice big working area and no shelves = clutter. Perhaps the next GB suggestion should be shelving rather than a model!!!!

My working area is too small and I tend to take different things off the shelves to use them and not put them back then they end up taking over the entire space.
I too have had my fair share of spills during a build, it's heart breaking when it undoes a load of work on a project

Good idea on a workstation group build

The things you have to research to get the right technique.

Thank the heavens I can read French.



Now there's something they don't teach you at Sunday School.



This is one time I'm glad I'm on beat-a-blockers.

Primer polished and my first attempt at pre-shading. Trust me to start on a 1/72 scale model.
It's a bit ragged and wonky, but dirt and grime doesnt comform to order, so iI'm pleased with that.

A few spiders along the way. It's trying to get used to the pressure, which I much prefer altering on the actual airbrush itself.



Ready now for getting some nice fine coats of the various colours of the cammo onto the model.
Ive had to be careful about not showing the base, for this model, in any photos, as that is finished.

That must be some tough research material to look through. Oh and nice plane [wink].

Beleive it, or not, Kenny there are some very good tips in the book.

Next time I have a pilot that wants to wear black stockings I now know how to paint them. Some of those British Spitfire Aces were a little eccentric.
Yally ho, lads!
[wink]

Can't wait to start the cammo. Hopefully I should be able to get some on before I have to go into work.

nice......book. I take beta blockers and several other meds that keep you from putting up a tent [bummer]. I can't even think much about 1/72 preshade! your progress is really good.

Got some of the cammo done, just one more stripe. Going to leave this to completely dry overnight before I attempt that as I will be using masking tape & blu tac.



Quite a devious cammo as they are identical top and bottom, and not mirror images. Wing edges have to be spot on.

Thought I would take this opportunity to show you my favourite brushes, that I use all the time.



from top to bottom I have my Army Painter OOO, for very fine work and black lining.

next my Citadel Fine Detail, not a bad range of brushes.

thirdly, my trusty dry brushing brush, that very rarely gets to have a bath in water.

and last, but by no means least, my general brush. You can tell how much I use this by the way the wood and ferrule have bent to fit my hand. Amazingly this is the cheapest brush I have and is able to do exactly what I want it to do.

Joking aside, that book looks like a really great way to get realistic flesh tones, and great reference for cross dressing infantry too !
You can already see how good the camo is at disguising what way up the plane is, painting looks tip top too Nigel.
I love the way your general brush has evolved to fit your hand

The paintbrush has been with me for so long, hence the shape.
As to the plane, what a good way to get used to using my airbrush. I enjoyed using it and think it's going to end up looking like my brush [smile]
