Hello All,

Had this finished for Model Expo in Melbourne but didn't have time to take photos prior to the event. Good Kit goes together quickly, decals are very good but the red wing walk decals are a real pain and time consuming to maneuver into place.

Is that a wash? What kind?

I would like to do that for my 1/144 ARII kit-- too cheap to get the new Dragon kit-LOL!

Panel line wash and filtering

June 23 2012, 6:24 PM 

Hello Steve,

The panel line pin wash is artists acrylic mix of lamp black and titanium white to make a light to mid grey. Enough to contrast the black.

An overall filter of blue was applied (commercial mig filter - blue for panzer grey) You could use any shade of blue for the same effect. It is enamel paint so you need to ensure that the acryllic base Paints are sealed under something. It is applied after dullcoating and another mist of dull coat is applied over the top to seal. Its about a 95% thinner to 5% paint mix.

Hope this helps.

That Black bird looks great. Just bought the same kit yesterday, and it looks like a sweet build. Can't wait to start.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
