LOL

That looks cool John!!! I love French camo, I wanna do another French tank soon.

Still thinking on mine. I do have a little Japanese car/trike thingie with bug-eyed headlamps that looks sorta frog-like. I'll see if I can find it, if it fits Real G's concept of 'frog' I can paint it red and stick it on a beach to fill out 'red' and 'sand'.

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Gamera! I haven't done a French camo scheme before, so... Indifferent Let's hope I can do it well! I have also been collecting diorama supplies-- Sculptamold, Static Grass, sandbags-- with more on the way. I saw this neat diorama video on YouTube, too: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=os1SA2ZpVdE

 

Frog is a tough ingredient! If Mongoose okays it, though, I'll count it. :)

 

Whoops! I looked for the car over the weekend and didn't find her. I should be able to find it by the first of the year I hope though. Which I'll aiming for as a start date.

I found the kit!!! 

Okay, I'm going to paint it red, put her on a sandy beach base. Might add a couple of surf boards to the back to further the beach impression. 

And looks like a frog to me from the front. Does it fit for you Mongoose? How about it?

Well I could paint her green. I was just worried if I go with a green truck and then paint the surf boards red it would give a weird Christmassy vibe to the model.

I do have some small Coke boxes, would that be enough for the 'red' ingredient if I put them in the bed?

 

I just figured that being a poison arrow tree frog instead of a regular frog I could go with red instead of a more normal frog colour of green, brown, or grey.

definitely would look too christmassy(weird word lol). The tree frog concept sounds good!

Actually, adding anything red to your build outside a decal counts. I'm planning to add red via a shirt in my diorama! So, it's a pretty flexible requirement. :)

You know, I found myself trying to use the word Christmasy myself. I guess we're inventing a new word here on Finescale! Lol

Cool guys!!! 

I started on my little car but getting there are some nasty seams on the front around the headlights. I filled and sanded multiple times and think it looks decent now. The main issue has been my big bugaboo- gloss finishes. I've sprayed the kit a few times and sanded it off- fingers crossed I'll get something I'm happy with soon.

yeah for sure. traditionally mine have had alternating tones of satin and gloss. On my latest it's been all about holding a steady distance and flow rate so that the paint seems to 'pool' on the surface. It can't go down thin like we do with flat paints for aircraft haha so it is essentially JUST SHY of 'running'

OK! I've got it. After brainstorming with my wife (whose name is MaryJane...you'll see the value of this in a second if you know any slang from the 60's...) 

im going to do a plane parting the red sea with a plaque of frogs escaping from the seafoam! I would anticipate making the frogs red poison dart frogs to doubke up on the red.

whatcha think? I do great water effects, i'm stoked about it. Think i could possibly pull it off.

Very creative, Mongoose! Gonna be a diorama of Biblical proportions, eh? It'll be fun to see the plague of frogs!

I hope the paint job turns out well for you, Gamera! I don't really build glossy auto model kits, though I do have a Bel Air waiting to be built. :)

Guys i am eyeballing my stash

was looking for something in 1/72 to keep the red sea of a reasonable size, you know maybe a Spit I could do in North Africa colors to fit the sand theme

what do i see on the shelf, I've been saving this and, you know with Revell launching the new 1/48 Blackbird, which I've seen sprue shots of and it's beautiful, I'm thinking what better aircraft "to part the Red Sea" than an SR-71 Blackbird? Should i do it? Worth it? Tell me what you think!

oh, and my daughter chimed in saying the squadron nickname has to be a locust...she said cartoon character but i translated haha

John: Good luck with the Bel Air! I've only really built military style stuff with matte finishes so glossy and pristine is a whole new ballgame for me.
