7TP's another thirty minutes painting on ...

Prototype camouflage pattern done on the "command tank", time for the other two "gun tanks" to catch up (see below):


Meanwhile while technically not a deviation (see "Just a Minute" Radio 4 game show rules) it is a distraction (but in my defence it is at least on the list):


The Airfix 1/1200 KM Prince Eugen from the "Sink the Bismarck" set. Will my concentration hold or will I be a kitten chasing a butterfly? Tune in next time to find out ...

Hi Geordie,

Mmmm....Prinz Eugen....

The four copies I have are earmarked for some rather unusual modifications in due course.

Am I the only person on the planet that uses a white undercoat?

Kitten chasing a butterfly? I reckon so!

All the best,

DC

I love the paintjob on those japanese tanks! Who's the manufacturer, you've probably mentionned it but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks, but they are Polish tanks! The reason why they look similar to the Japanese tanks is that they are all based on the Vickers exported six " Tonner"

SHQ is the maker

Great painting mate, I really like this early war stuff

Once I have these done next up are some TK "tankettes"!

White undercoats, you get "brighter" colours as a result for sure but I always thought you had more work covering the area afterwards and shading it down. I like the darker look to my kits.

If I 'need' a bright colour (and also remember to do it before I start applying said bright colour) I do selectively paint areas/patches "white", but never the whole model.

For my recent 28mm plastic Perry Renaissance figures I used Games Workshop Scorched Brown to give a milder base colour to work from rather than black (I also wanted to use the pot of paint up)

David,

I can understand Prinz Eugen, Hipper and Blucher ... but I lack your imagination for anything else
