A Model a Decade… and 15 Minutes of Modelling

It is that time of year when everyone is writing about how many models they have built during the year (see here and here, for example). Indeed, Matt McDougall at Doogs Models has gone as far as to reflect on a decade of modelling. To say that I am jealous of his output is an... Continue Reading →

A Brief Update…

I have not been completely idol recently, I promise. I have been moving along slowly with a few projects. First up is the Bavarian Jager bust from H&V Miniatures. I am now in the final stages of this piece. It is intricate details that need working on, such as buttons and piping. This part helps... Continue Reading →

However, for several reasons I have not been happy with the finish. One of the issues was the uniform colour. Bavarian Cornflower Blue, as we... Continue Reading →

One Fixed Airbrush

Before I stopped painting, I was using an airbrush to help lay in basic coats and general shadows. However, my break from painting, and my move to Australia meant I had not been doing much painting.
