Military Modelling

I just like getting my moneys worth out of a cheap(ish) kit
I used to build 1:72 aircraft when I was a lad. I used to just put them together as they came off of the frame and then paint them as I could be bothered, though. When I stopped being a lad and became A Lad they took turns to go downrange in the garden to absorb .177" wadcutters so they are all no more.

That some of them may have involved chemical reactions involving various substances that may have included lighter fluid are entirely unfounded true.
 
I remember learning to paint large-scale figures from a free booklet attached to Military Modelling magazine. It worked brilliantly, but I realised that large-scale figures were too much like hard work, so stuck to teeny-weeny figures, with a totally different method (start with a black undercoat and layer up the colours from dark to light - it doesn't really work with large-scale figures).
 
Daz, I simply can't understand why somebody has given you a "dumb" sticker for your efforts. I have picked up two this weekend, myself, I couldn't care less about anybody else's opinion about me, but that one is just wrong.

Regards - Peter.

It's a running joke... Anyone who does anything that incredibly detailed is clearly an idiot... ;) I remove them after comedic effect has been achieved.
 
Then you clearly have an incredibly low sense-of-humour thresh-hold. Turd.
Pot, Kettle, say again colour, over. I'm sure that Daz appreciates you white-knighting on his behalf, but please refer back to his post 13,028 above... Daz is fully aware that I find his work absolutely incredible and he's SABC'd some of my stuff in the past. It's flippin' banter...

Anyway, duly changed to a Like. Normal service resumed.

I believe the correct key setting is thus:-

Kettle, Kettle; Pot: over.
Pot, Pot; Kettle: Send traffic, over.
Kettle; Pot: Black. Out.
 
Daz, as my SABC was misconstrued... Your work and attention to detail never ceases to astonish and you are clearly certifiable.
Not to worry - apparently it's a running joke.
 
I think people who say that, think it because it's different, personally, I think wings and tracks are a nightmare :eek:
That's because figure painters are odd :)

Firework propelled jets were also a good one...….shame about H&S these days

That......and its a long, long running joke, I've just waiting for @Signalman to scratch build the webbing on 20mm or smaller figures so I can repay the compliment :)
 
Just to lighten the mood a bit as we appear to be in the NAAFI

There were cobwebs on it this morning.......

I will also be ordering a new one to finish it - the mrs' lad broke one of the rotors and its unfixable
