I've painted a few models that I last built roughly 40 years ago!

Airfix, Italeri and matchbox
despite some of this kits being nearly as old as me i really enjoyed myself! And the fact I try not to paint anything smaller than 28mm they turned out not to shabby. I've also updated my blog so feel free to drop on over and check it out

Thanks for looking
Cheers for now Russ

Handsome collection :)
The 'unditching logs' are a nice touch.

They look good. Can I ask how you painted them please?

The pics on your blog repay closer study with my iPad click and zoom. Very nice. Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys for the positive feedback, it's being a long time since I built some of these kits. I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Thanks Patrick, it certainly was a true wander down memory lane.

dragon6, thank you also. I'm adding more bits and pieces next up is an Airfix Tiger Tank! One of the kits I didn't build in my younger years.

wrgmr1, thank you its much appreciated. I can honestly say my painting as improved massively since I first built some of these kits.

LeonAdler, thank you also. It's amazing how a little bit of extra detail can make a massive difference to the finished model.

Marc at work, I did a how to a good few years ago for 28mm vehicles but it should give you a good idea on how I approach painting vehicles
So thanks for looking guys, thank you for the feedback
Cheers for now Russ

Russ – nice guide. Thanks for the link

Morand thank you also, there will be more to come.

Marc at work your more than welcome, hopefully it gives the basics of how I paint camo on German vehicles. It works the same for 20mm or 28mm, I'm guessing with a few tweaks it could work even beyond these scales.

So thanks for the feedback and all the comments it's very much appreciated
Thanks again cheers for now Russ
