My 3 for 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This last year all started with my Maverick build (which dang near killed me.lol) I ran into a couple of snags with it that caused me to have diversion builds in order to back up and regroup. 2-3 builds a year is pretty typical out of me as I move really slow with em.

My 1/25 Jo-Han Maverick:

This one being the one that I spent the most time on this last year and is therefore my favorite....I'll shoot another couple of shots up here:

My Revell 1/25 Ram Air T/A

And my Ryefiled 1/35 scale Wermacht Beetle:

and one more of this car. Despite its small scale, it was packed with detail already and then just for fun I added a few extra.

When I saw your Beetle, snagged a kit.  Great job on that, and of course the others.

Thanks Don. I was already a Maverick fan before the build but the more I researched the Mavericks the more I liked them.

Love all of 'em, but man that Maverick is killer.  What paint did you use on the valve covers?

Thank you Chris, Roger and Tony!  I really appreciate you guys stopping in and commenting.

Tony: I used Badger's Stynylrez Gray Primer for the gray portion and Stynylrez Black Primer for the Black portion. After that I used a Prismacolor Silver lead pencil and drug it lightly across the raised details.

Thanks Joe.  Those covers look great.  I've never used those brands before but maybe I'll have to give them a try.

Thanks Tony. I had never used them until this last year but I've gotta say that right out of the bottle with no diluting that these are some of the smoothest paints/ primers that I've ever shot through my airbrush. Lays down perfect every time.

Impressive details!  I love your 1/35 beetle work too.

Thanks Chang!! I'm going to have to build me another Ryefield kit at some point. I really enjoyed building that VW.
