ok than stick to the plan =) it might turn out great when it's done =)
will you be able to find those primer chipings when you over-spray them with camo?

What Dunkelgelb color did you use? The tone looks just about right (to my eyes at least).

only use tamiya paints for airbrushing. my yellow is pretty simple for this one since i didnt' have the ability to do any color modulation with the HS drying time.... it's just dark yellow and white mixed to a suitable tone. i like to make it really light so that i can control the shade later when weathering.

just sprayed the model with a coat of vallejo gloss varnish and will let that until tomorrow to set up. after that we can add another layer of HS and get on with the colors..... only one shot at the camo, i'm not doing all of this over again if i don't like it

well scratch this one guys..... had some issues with the camo removal (used too much water which made a mess of things - good lesson learned among others) but after i decided to remove it and start again the varish bubbled up and made a total mess of things. faced with a globbed up mess of a model i took off the barrel and tracks and chucked her in the bin. i built this one so long ago that i don't really even feel all that bad about it but it still sux so i guess it's on to something else. what did i learn from this....... ? I still believe HS is a pretty cool technique and i think i could do it better the next time after having tried it out and seen how much water and rubbing that it takes to make an effective looking finish. in fact, i may use it on the base coat next time before camo just to make the surface scratches easier to do and more realistic looking. multiple layers makes it more difficult and perhaps most important of all, i never considered the fact that i used a gloss varnish when i should have used a flat coat or satin. the paint comes off way too easily off a gloss surface. like i said, lessons learned

anybody got any great ideas on a new project ? i have no unbuilt kits and none ready for paint so i have to order up some stuff but don't know what i want to move on to. probably not a king tiger for obvious reasons although at present I have no tigers of any sort in my display cabinet which is no way to be. anyway, fresh vbench coming soon of something....

why don't you make this one as a wreck? bubbles and busted paint works just fine here... or just try =)
that zimm looks too damn nice to be thrown away...

Yeah, Kuk has a point there: if you mess one up, you can even use the flaws to your advantage: for example paint sometimes made bubbles when the vehicle underneath it burned out...

it's worse than you think..... i put acetone on it and alchohol and whatever else i had around and i had pieces falling off and clear coat turning to gew. it's a lost cause...... but no matter, on to something else.
