    With oil paint. Squeeze a little onto a piece of cardboard or kitchen towel and leave it for AT LEAST an hour for the oil to seep out. When you've done this it will dry much quicker. It's the linseed oil in the paint that takes time to dry

  12. So this is the next kit on the bench. The Revell HE219 A2/5/7 I have ordered some HGW fabric belts for it as the tempest ones were lovely. I was going to order an eduard Cockpit but I will do the pit from scratch. I haven't decided what variant yet so hence the something tag.

    Mish is right. I feel thee is another issue at play and that is the plethora of museum standard models all over the place. Anybody new will have a look at that and think there is no way I can produce that! Not that we should stop publishing our work. But to some this is going to feel daunting. On the other place I was involved in a couple of GB's (thanks for organising mish) with that in mind one was the less than a tenner gb and the other was out of the box gb. On the less than a tenner someone decided not to build the same kit that I had started because I had done a good job of the Cockpit. So his sense of competitiveness and need for instant gratification put him off. I run the weekend in a weekend for fun and just that. It causes gnashing of teeth swearing and in my case a bruised toe. But if people can see that you can produce something acceptable in a weekend there is hope yet. Is the hobby dying? No has the target audience changed? But look at some of the wooden ships on here. Who would have saidin the fifties that these would dissappear? Me for one. But that hobby appears to be in rude health

    Tamiya's new laquer paints

    Cheers Steve. Fwiw the UHU I'm doing now used 10ml of gunze acrylic. Yes a whole jar of RLM 76 blue. So that should give a good idea of how much you would use. I may give them a try but tbh I'm wedded to my gunze paints so much that I probably won't

    Interesting topic. I would say that each generation finds its own way. Yes there are loads of kids who are addicted to the phone screen. But some of thos have played war thunder call of duty etc. And still build as a result of those games. As an older generation we have a duty to support kids coming into the hobby. So all the encouragement we can give is important. I look at the shows and there are next to no 10-18 year olds out there. But the younger ones are interested in stuff they can relate to. Star Wars for example. Don't despair yet this has just become a more engrossing hobby due to the complexity. When I was ten I was building things like matchbox's wellington. Can you amagine giving a ten year old the airfix kit?
