I just don't understand how I over looked this John. Great stuff here and I totally missed it when you posted. Thanks!
I told you photobucket sucks...

This was a random find on the forum for me- and a lucky one at that! Very well put, Joihn- and a real inspiration for my Well Done build in the offing.

Cheers!

Painting Armor 101 15 Oct 2010 21:22 #4

Hi everyone. This is a SBS I did for a Private forum of which I am a member. In this thread I will give you the basics of how I paint and a weather, then in another thread I will show you what it has evolved into.

Let me start by saying that I do not profess to be the best or know it all, but I have learned a thing or two in the 35+ years I have been doing this. So take what you want from this thread and leave the rest my feelings won't be hurt (too much).

First step. Prep the model for paint.

The first thing I do happens before construction, I wash and dry all the sprues in warm soapy water. PE frets in vinager, then soapy water. After construction is complete, I dis-assemble each subassembly and mount it for ease of handling.

The turret, tires etc are mounted as well.

Maybe John can help us locate the original images. I see the images were hosted at The Lem. I guess they deleted the old gallery there.

John you still got the original images?

Hi John,

I hope you have the original images because I missed this when they were up. I really want to see this. The couple of photos that are on there look great. Looking forward to your replacing the photos!

Bob
