The Offical Natural Metal Finish Group Build III

  • B17 - Hopefully I won't be out of action for that long. My goal is to be up and running again by Thanksgiving. ESPECIALLY if tradition holds and the wife takes the kids to Houston for like four days!

    I promised more Mustang, and here we go. Wash is finished up tonight. Only problem with this Flory stuff is that you have to wipe the excess off with paper towels, which leaves little paper towel fibers all over the friggin' place. Anybody have any bright ideas how to get them off? Thinking I might try a dryer sheet, but would that mess up the sealing coat?

    On the Bench: 1/32 Trumpeter P-47 | 1/32 Hasegawa Bf 109G | 1/144 Eduard MiG-21MF x2

    On Deck:  1/350 HMS Dreadnought

  • B-17: Sharp looking cockpit! She's coming right along.

    Doogs: Wow Petie looks great! Maybe wiping the model down with a damp clean tee-shirt? Are the fibers stuck to the model or just holding on with static electricity?

    BTW: Good luck with the move.

    Just because no one understands you- it doesn't make you an artist!

  • Try a Swiffer duster rag, will only work if they're being held by static electricity

      

  • Doogs The Pete is lookin great man !!!! If I may, go to the autoparts store Autozone, Pepboys, Kragen, Oriley, one of those and they carry a blue paper towel that is lint free. I think they call them shop towels on a roll. They are pricey but I cut a small piece from a whole sheet to wipe down my models with so a roll lasts forever, and you get zero lint or wollybogers on a surface. Oh and they work great, damp, wet or dry.

    PS I think Napa carries them too.

    Randy So many to build.......So little time

  • that mustang looks awesome, doogs!   Propeller

     

    oh, vetteman, can you switch the 1/72 mustang for Tamiyas P-51B in 1/48? I decided I have too many shiny mustangs and want to make the 1/72 one have an OD/NG scheme. The Tamiya will get the final decal set form my "Blue Nosed Birds of Bodney" sheet: "The Flying Scot" is the middle plane with full invasion stripes. Smile

  • Alright, I'm calling it. Petie 2nd is officially off the bench!

    Overall, I'm proud of her, but I definitely have some areas I want to work on before I tackle the big 1/32 kit.

  • Love how Petie come out Doogs! Beautiful work!

    As I said I'm going to steal...um... borrow your pre-shading technique for my P-47D. I keep getting trash in the black undercoat though. Going to give the airbrush a serious cleaning out and hopefully I'll have the model ready when the Alclad gets here next week.

  • Doogs,

    Beautiful pony!! That panel line wash really gives it an authentic feel. Love itYes I take it the paper towel residue problem was solved...?

    Every model you put out shows not only skill but also how it is decompression/ therapy for you after a long ardous day at work or with the kidsWink The attention to detail and your painting are skills to be envied.
