You're really cracking on with these. Not much happening down the allotment then?
Well I spent the morning walking along Filey sea front and then the town, this afternoon down the Paddy Field - alias the allotment.

No doubt, doing some research for your current project.
I hope my next is always better

Decals applied.
Instead of Klear, I used Tamiya Gloss varnish, the Klear seems to darken the colour a lot, so I thought that I would try this.
I am not sure I like the way those decals are sitting - time will tell.

Hmm, I see what you mean they don't seem to have settled well.

Hi Zak,
Did you use any decal solution's? to encourage them to settle.
Interesting to see you have used Tamiya Gloss rather than Kleer. Might have to try that on a future project.
Cheers,
Kevin

Yes Microsol/set, I used the Tamiya, as the Klear seemed to darken the Olive Drab a lot.

I have been trying to build a suitable diorama for my M10 GMC,
I am not too sure as yet, time will tell.
It is a building with an arched gateway, I started off in stone, but ended up in brick.
Lots of work and thinking needed yet.

Cobbled road added with DAS air drying clay.
Needs to dry and then the cobbles need to be carved a bit more.
