Hi again everyone
Ironically, after all the talk of Colourcoats, I’ve actually ended up using Mr Hobby this time - my other “go to” paints. It’s not a question of one being better than the other, simply that a complete line-up of necessary Gunze Sangyo RLM colours fell to hand as I scoured my chaotic workshop! I thin both brands with generic cellulose thinners, so good ventilation is vital, whichever I use.
(Note to self: Once this build’s finished, I really MUST take advantage of being furloughed from work due to Covid-19 to sort out my workshop and make it fit for purpose again! )
So, back to the build. I’ve had a couple of fallow days for one reason or another, but I got going again today, preparing the Emil for camouflage. I always pre-shade my military builds, but I thought black would be a bit stark in 1:72, so used dark grey instead, spraying white lightly on the unshaded areas to maintain some contrast against the bare grey plastic:
All being well, I should get the exterior finished this weekend.
Take care and stay safe.
All the best
