Hi,

 

52 years old but new to modeling.  Mostly like Armour Just finished a M109A  my First model was an A10 though. Just started trying weathering have watched 100 videos on You tube.  Any advise on good You Tube videos is appreciated.  Using mostly Vallejo Air and some Tamiya colors. 

So next kit is my M1A2- looking forward to it. Just purchased a bunch of filters, pigments and varnishes. Want to make the next build a nice one.

Still over spraying-lol. All good things come with practice and time.

So hello all

Still over spraying-lol.

Beleve it , or not, "Overspray" can actually be Prototypical........

( but sometime;s I just tell people " I meant to do that". )

Welcome to FSM.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".
