I love painting, especially on figures. It is great to see them come alive! Theses are recent work. Hope you like. It is the first i've posted here. Be gentle please!

For warplanes, cockpit detail.  For bikes, autos and airliners is all about the overall finish

Thanks,

John

Whoops, and for figures it's the face.

Thanks,

I think my favorite part of it is when I remove the masks. It's here when all the hard work reveals why it was worth the effort.

I like brushing small detail, like the guilding on old sail warships.

Actually, I really enjoy masking. As was said, when the masks are removed and there's little to no bleed, it's a good feeling.

First: Free hand camo painting. It's especially satisfying in 1:72nd, being smaller and a bit more difficult. TOTS, right Bish? For this I use either my Paasche VJR, or Badger 100G, both with the smallest head components.

Second: Masking canopies, when it comes out well it's so worth the time and effort. For this I have used a couple of Montex and Eduard sets which gave very good results, but mostly I stay with Tamiya tape and Frisket. With the Tamiya I just never have a bleed through.

Third: The paint itself, I still use some enamel, but mostly Tamiya acrylic. When paint is fresh and properly thinned/mixed, just watching it flow onto the surface and settle into a smooth layer is really rewarding for me.
