Hi guys - thanks for checking it out -
Conor - I appreciate your comments! thanks!
Mark, Paul and Jelger, thanks from you each! this build was fun because of the variety! I hadn't tried many of the techniques for the ground plane and buildings before, so that kept me nervous!
, but, it seemed to work out OK - as for the vehicles, I really like scratch building and kit changing - so, this was perfect!
Hi Matt - yes, another contributor! the roller wheels almost steal the show! thanks! I still wonder, what could I have done to be slightly convincing without the cast parts? - who knows.....
Hi Jerry - thanks for dropping by. Yes, Romain, we were emailing ideas and updates, as for his figures, - I think:
A) he was so annoyed with my mediocre figure work that he "had" to step in!!!;
B)he just wanted a brief break from his HUE mega project!;
or C) just had a few free minutes and wanted to hop in for a quick build! - in any case, I really appreciate it!
Always room to get better at things. I'm realizing how much personal technique matters in model building - for any part of it...
Just because I love one way, doesn't mean anyone else will and visa versa, just keep practicing and do what works best for you. So, with the figures, two constants I can cite for helping me to get better at it are: good paint brushes! and good paint! I guess these sound obvious, but I tried using the paint I use for vehicles (with an air brush, where it works great) on figures with cheap hand brushes....uhh, yeah....not great.
So, on we go.
Hi Kurt - thanks very much! that means plenty coming from you! I really appreciate your willingness to go for it! with great results - thanks!
