Quick update - 2nd vow (Coldstar) almost complete, just the head to do. Started looking through the building instructions for my 3rd vow last night (Ghostkeel).

Thanks guys! 

So.... I just ordered 2 sets of these for my flyers. Going to have the digital camo on the Barracuda AX-5-2, Tigershark AX-1-0 and the DX-6 Remora!!

!!ONLY THE BEST FOR THE ETL!!

 

This is most interesting - can't wait for digital camo in the large surfaces of the Tau flyers... Airbrush I assume?

No photos this weekend but a written update...

 

I have been working on 3 x old style XV8 suits and, as usual, have been painting them in sections.

So far the legs, arms, feet and heads are done less weathering and the torso is dark green with brown patches and just needs the light green patches and detailing then the bases.

All in all they should be done by Wednesday which is half the time required to do 2 x XV9s so I am catching up to the original expected completion date. Only another 6 to do...

 

I may be able to slip in a Hammerhead or 2 before the August deadline ;)

Hehe, you're the second person in 2 days to say that to me! I actually hadn't planned it, but maybe some forgotten memory from my childhood was working on me? A little voice saying "purple, you want to paint it purple!" biggrin.png
 
I'm now wondering if I have to paint my next battlesuit in the same colour scheme as Starscream...

What's wrong with good old reading glasses, besides making you look old? msn-wink.gif 

 

Those with just magnification are really cheap, and in every supermarket around here. I've been using reading glasses for a decade now, because of close-range double vision, and they definitely help painting.

Funny you say that, but the reading glasses i use when i paint etc just cracked at the rim bottom and the lens falls out...dry.png

I'm guessing lenses don't fall out with those modellers visors happy.png  i might as well get the funky ones now if im forking out some more cashola !

my local scale model superstore has a decent pair and i think i'll take the plunge biggrin.png
