I don't ever want to do 1/72 vehicles again
« on: September 04, 2017, 11:51:32 PM »
My daughters boyfriend bought me a 1/72 scale RAF Support Vehicle set for Christmas and I've just finished it. It's funny - because there weren't alot of parts, but it was more challenging for me than a 1/35 scale tank because of the size of the parts - eyes being what they are and fingers being what they are.

But I got them done. I didn't do any weathering or do anything in the way of touching up


I was especially lazy on the motorcycle - but my hands just aren't steady enough to paint something so small


The "glass" seemed to not like the Alcalad Semi Gloss I sprayed. I thought it might do the same as the Jonsons Klear I used to use - but no. I'll have to remember not to use this on clear parts


And for size comparison. Next time I get 1/72 vehicles I think I'll donate them to charity


Thank god they're done and out the way. Space 1999 Eagle next...I need something easy

You have a nice collection going, JD.

Thanks.

I'm starting to be more confident with the airbrush.

I've got some great kits to make - F-14, Sherman, Tiger, an aircraft carrier, the old and new Star Ship Enterprise, a helicopter (Lynx I think)....I'm looking forward to all of them!
