Hi James,

I had a lot of problems with matt varnishes, too. In the end, I started using Vallejo Model Air matt varnish, applied using an airbrush. Works a treat for me.

Thanks

Hey Tony,

Thanks very much for that information. That will be very useful to know. I shall apply the same fix to my kit when (if...) it arrives. I'm looking forward to watching your build progress.

I think that's a pretty good price. I paid that for a Trumpeter K5 about five years ago. I would have expected the price to have gone up, if anything.

James, I suspect you're absolutely right. I happen to have another photo of the inside of the Bovvo Tiger. Maddeningly, it doesn't show the floor clearly, but the tiny bit of it you can see does seem...

Gentlemen, many thanks. Interesting that Coops' photo seems to show an elfenbein floor, while James' info doesn't even seem to include this as a possibility!

I think I will probably go for the...

Tamiya Panzer II

Hi all,

Thought I'd post some pics of my Tamiya Panzer II. It depicts a vehicle from the French campaign. The idea was to show a vehicle that had seen a bit of use, but not much abuse. So, worn...

I've just started Dragon's Pz.IV C, and I'm enjoying it very much. But... the painting callout on the instructions for the floor to the turret basket (part F38) states that it should be...

Thanks to all in advance!

Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to post this, but I thought I'd ask for some advice.

Thanks for that, Mic. I'm always wary of what solvents will do to the plastic body of the Aztek. It's supposed to be impervious to pretty much any kind of solvent, but I've always taken that with a...

Thanks for the quick response, Scott. I think I will have to try the lacquer thinner approach as you suggest.
