    M4A1 Sherman

    For the tracks it's degrrease with IPA, prime with Styrnex then Acrylics over the top, leaving them to dry for a week or between primer and paint and paint and handling. But the Tasca tracks are better than most. As for the mud behind the running gear, it's Oilbrusher oils as a base, then pigments over the top, with drops of Oilbrushers. It's all about building layers, so keep stopping and let things dry (or force it with a hair dryer as I do). If you are wanting a tank to start with a Tasca Sherman is a really good start - they are wonderful models, go together really well, the tracks don't need sag so you don't need AM metal tracks. The only suggestion i would make would be to go for an Easy Eight as a starter as the suspension is easier to assemble. HTH Peter

    Todays work - first added the tools and PE to the other side of the hull Then a couple more hours and you have all the running gear in it's working suspension glory. They are a little fiddly, but once you get the knack they aren't too bad Peter

    Eduard's boxing of the Lovely Tasca / Asuka Sherman. When it came out it was by far and away the cheapest way to get a Tasca Sherman, so I got a couple Started by making up the lower hull, and adding some Mr Surfacer 1000 to add more cast texture as it's a bit soft While I was at it, added the texture to the turret as well Peter

    F-5E 'Aggressor' - VFC-111

    Well it's done, the Kittyhawk 1/32nd F-5E. Horrible kit, that just got worse the further I got, the final straw being the open canopy mounting not fitting nor any of the clear lights. The gear doors also don't fit, and the intakes are mostly filler.... It's not too bad from a distance - Painted with Mr Color Laquers If you are really bored, you can read the journey into the abyss here Peter

    Mr Surfacer

    It's a waste of Mr Levelling thinner when IPA works fine (yes Mr Levelling thinner works quicker, but it's way more expensive)

    Mr Surfacer

    Use IPA (Isopropyl alcohol) ideally 99% pure, but anything above 95% will work to wipe off excess rather than Cellulose.
