    H.M.S Bounty, Revell 1/110
    decided to try a ship for something different!
    I picked up a few of these old revell kit to get started with.  first up is the Bounty.





     




    airbrushed with craft acrylics.





    I wanted the masts to be a lighter color than the rest of the wood like an oak looking color so I painted them with flesh craft paint then went over with raw umber oils and some paynes grey to make shadows
    also went with a bronze figure head, it shows the nice detail in it better than painting it i think

    thanks man! i recommend the craft paint if your interested in saving money
     
    I went around the tank adding a bunch of tiny chipping and scratches,  added some stuff on the back like a bucket and extra track. and detail painted the spent round on the engine deck.

    lol thanks! when you wanna save money on paint you work with it until you figure it out
     
    painted up this figure from a miniart set, not really liking it though. think I will buy a resin figure instead.

    thanks for the links!, i really dont take it to the rivet counter extreme though haha or enter contests, so as long as it looks like what it is im happy
    but since its been pointed out to me a million times lol, I added camo stripes around the tank. the Rye Field instructions don't say to add anything!  i figured the best way to add them after the fact was to spray them with thinned down artist oils. worked pretty good

    Thanks!, the kit is real nice. And for all the stuff in the box you can't beat it on the price.
    i like the regular dark yellow, that's what I think of on an Africa vehicle.  The instructions in this kit don't call for any camo pattern just a solid color. They tell you to paint it "rlm02 gray" which looks like a pea green/yellow in their drawing.  But the box art looks yellow

    lol yeah the bolt head on the fenders. They do include several bolt head detail on the sprue runners of both "D" sprues  if you wanted to sand them off and move them,  Also I wanted to see the tracks better on the finished model, on the color I just mixed a few yellow and brown craft paint together to make a base yellow and a bit of a lighter yellow.

    DAK Tiger 1 wip
    hey guys, been posting some on facebook, thought I'd share it on the forum also.
    the build went together really easy with no real issues.
    addeda bit of texture with bondo and added a few welds around.





    I'm just starting on the painting now, I use dupli-color primer, and then everything else is craft paints.
    wheels


    turret

    I use printing plates also, mine have some blue coating on one side, I just sand it off,  move up the grits to get polished look if desired.

    thanks guys,
    for the paint I airbrush duplicolor red primer on, then added more brown colors to that, then airbrushed the blue over top leaving some rust spots. 
    then go back over with some artist oils to add some more fading and rain streaks, scratches etc. Seal all in with a flat varnish
