Response to Grant build

Hello John,

I hand painted the hard edge scheme, using diluted paint and several coats. You do need a decent brush to do it well and get smooth edges, fortunatley I have lots of artists water colour sable brushes for painting my figures. Some of these are quite expensive, but with sable brushes you get what you pay for. I would recommend the following brands that I use...

DaVinci Maestro series 35, Tobolsky red sable...

Raphael Kolinsky Red Sable Brushes series 8404...

Escoda Reserva Kolinsky-Tajmyr sabke Series 1212...

A lot of people use the Winsor and Newton series 7 as well, but I have had some bad experiences with their brushes so I can't recommend them.

I think the figure looks German because he is wearing a side cap, you don't usually see British tankers with side caps although they did wear them.

All the best,

Paul
