Hi Gents!

If nobody objects I thought I'd start a thread here to document my cold war builds. This is partly to keep them together so I can keep track and partly to and a bit more activity to the SIG forum (Let me know If it's not allowed).

WIP:

1/72 Super Etendard.
1/72 Challanger mk.I
1/72 MIG-27

Built:

TBA

To do (for SMW 2016):

1/72 SU-27
1/72 Tornado GR.1
1/72 F/A-18A

Cheers

Stuart

And here is were I was with it.

I've actually started painting so more pictures to follow.

(I've also had a 1/72 Revell Challenger mk.I turn up today - pics soon)

Cheers

Stuart

Here's a box shot of the Challenger - I'll add some sprue shots later.

Decal Options Give 1988 - need to find out if that's ok for 1991.

Cheers

Stuart

They both look great Stu. Well done for making a start.

And that tank will be right straight OOB 8-)

The Etendard has had a coat of paint...

(Humbrol 1 - closest match I could find - thinned with enamel thinners)

Image

Trying out a different painting method on this - dabbing with a small round brush rather than the normal flat. The idea is to vary the amount of depth/opacity in the paint.

Stuart

You mean it's all brush-painted and sort of daubed on making it darker in places so it has a sea-worn faded appearance?

Yep - that's the idea! This is only the first coat mind.

That's an interesting techique with the Etendard paintjob Stuart and I see you've got a Challenger ready to be built too, top man!

Yeah I've meaning to have a go at small scale armor for a while - I'm looking forward to it but it'll be a bit of a learning curve me thinks.

I like the look of that paint method Stu. It's rather like airbrush pre-shading but manually applied. It'll be very interesting to see how it goes. 8-)
