    Dorvack. GHQ is 1/287th scale. I have attempted to dull down the IKA to try and show some details although it is a one colour paint job, Hope this is better but I use an Australian product for my gloss glass coat I guess its too glosy. Stu

    Again Thanks for your generous remarks. Cambrius. The colour used is 15 years old so I dont know if the formula has changed over time but it is Tamiya XF-14 JA Grey. I do not use a dry brush method but a modified layering technic the first coat is applied over a black under coat and is thin one part paint with 4 parts liquidtex flow aid. Give it 2 washes of Devlon mud making sure your brush strokes are in the same direction of water flow up and down in this case. then highlight with the original colour mix.. I like the washed out stain effect it give and you can control the color by the number of layers used if too bright you can wash it again with this time a thinned layer of devlon mud. Hope this is helpful. Dorvack.The numbers are decals GHQ german armor numeral The flag is painted with a decal roundel. they are bedded in using a softener. Von Klinkerhoffen. It was army painter ultra matt only around 6 months old. I think I know were I can get my hands on Dullcote locally so I will give that a go thanks. Still working on my Battle ship hopfully finished by the end of the week.

    Thanks for the kind replies. Especially thanks to Von Klinkerhoffen I have a look at a lot of the stuff that you have posted and that tutorial on basing tiny flyers has been greatly appriciated. Here are my cruisers a little note check your matt varnish before you spray it this stuff must have a expiration as I found out to my dismay.So if you see any tiny white dots please forgive. Critic will be most welcome as I am starting on my battle ship. Stu
