    New guy here, saw the modeling area, thought I would post. I will do a WW2 plane from time to time. I have a passion for Bf109's. I just ordered 9 more from a online Hobby Shop down in TX after I realized I was down to just 4 unfinished kits. I have a Stuka ready for some air brushing. Nice pictures here. I believe in a previous thread (vote for the model airplane) there is a 1/72 P47. I have the same exact model on one of my shelfs.

    Yea, its Warhammer 40k. I like their tanks and other models. Basically, if you buy one, don't follow the directions too closely; you'll end up hating the model and wishing its destruction.

    The resin models are ok, which some of this was resin and plastic, so they compliment each other. But over all, I think I prefer plastic since I am clumsy at times, and dropping a piece is not fun.

    I used Citadel Paints to do it, and basically just normal modelling tools, nothing too special. But I do like it, and I am planning on making a unit of infantry to go with it; maybe make a Warhammer Afrika Corp version. :D

    Heres a piece of my work. Mind you its a copy-cat type thing since I used the paint scheme that the creators of the model said, I'm just horrible at paint schemes and don't have too big an imagination with creating new ones.

    Thanks! Aftermarket photoetch and resin add-ons are a great help. And I am not a terrible painter.

    Truth be told, the quality of the kits today is so good that it's hard to NOT have them turn out looking good.

    Sorry, Hoss, a little too specialized, and not a specialty the general WAB membership cares a whole helluva lot about. I think maybe you'd be happier with that subject on message boards dedicated to it.

    Please post them, Chris. One of my dad's shooting buddies does Napoleonic figures, and one of the women in my model club paints flat figurines.

    Since this kinda applies to the models I thaught maybe I would post some pictures of my toy soldier battles, and no they arent the Toys R Us kind, they are a bit higher class then that lol.

    I have some nice Alamo, Zulu War and WW2 figures, tanks, etc I could set up and take pictures.

    Anyone else here collect/buy toy soldiers?

    There are a couple of things you need to do to help that...

    Apply a gloss-coat covering to the surface so it's smooth for decal application.
    Wash the surface of any dust or fingerprints.
    Remove the decals from the water after the backing is wet.
    Let it sit on a paper towel for several minutes until the decal slides freely.
    Apply a decal setting agent (usually a vinegar solution) to the model.
    Use a soft brush to adjust the decal.
    Blot the decal with a clean cotton cloth.
    Apply a decal solvent to the decal after it's set to melt the decal onto the model.

    Contact me if you have any questions.
