    Here are a few pics of a recent project of mine. It is Dragon's 1/72 Sherman Firefly. A nice little kit. It is being doen as a NZ Firefly. Here are some WIPs. Almost finished with it.









    Any and all thoughts welcome.

    I never knew you were a modeller! :)

    Good job it is! And almost 1:76 too :D

    In my most HUMBLE opinion, I think pre-shading is a waste of time considering the amount of muck a vehicle model gets thrown at; it certainly doesn't shown between photos 4 and 5 ;)

    Oh yeah. I have been for years. Mans got to have a hobby. History is more a vocation!

    Very nice Ross, amazing the detail they're cramming into 1/72nd these days... (Those sodding etched brushguards on the lights are bad enough in 35th! )

    Tried that pre-shading on a few kits with mixed results, very dependent on 'thinness' of the next coat. I may be mistaken, but haven't you been anti-airbrush in the past?

    Cheers chaps.

    Not so much anti-airbrush Adam as I felt you can do similar with a brush. However, having some spare cash led to buying one. I agree to apply more coats you do need to thin the paint down and keep the airbrush at a low pressure.
