What scale is the car? 1/1 or 1/24?

Guys, I'm back after a long pause. Work, work, work....

I've finally painted 251 in tritonal camo with hard edges using Tamiya masks.
It was firs experience for me in such way.
I'm rather satisfied with the results, but in some places the camo is blur. Thinking of what to do with it.

Comments are welcomed.

PS Sorry for bad quality photo - I made them with iPhone.

Hey Andrey,

Even with the i-phone photos you can see that you are doing great work - the camo is looking good...perfect for weathering.

Rick

Camo is a blur...

I repair paintwork with a very thin mixture of the base colour, using a very fine brush, almost dry-brushing. You can gently feather the base colour into where the overspray has gone too far (or not covered well enough). With practice, you can hide anything. Under road dirt, repairs will be invisible, and easier than repainting the whole thing.

I like the camouflage. The colours look good and the pattern is nice. Cheers.

Scott
