    G'day Gang,

    I've built models off and on for years, some good, some pretty ordinary...... built some planes way way back, but mostly cars..... Am 2/3 way through a 1:200 part works Bismarck.. Always been a WWII buff, building the Bismark has re kindled my interest in WWII planes. I'm about to start ICM 1:48 Bf 109-4 kit and also have Dragon 1:32 P51D mustang with RAAF decal set.

    Oh and I found a Revell 1:28 'Red Baron' I bought years ago that I've almost finished.

    looking forward to trying some 'weathering' techniques as I've never done so before.

    Was looking through the forums a little and found that great colour reference chart. Not sure if its been posted here before, but in my search for the right colours for my my Bismarck I came across a web site that you can enter in a name or colour etc and it gives you equivalencies in model paints. I'll post a link to the site in the painting section for those who want to check it out.

    Cheers
    Pete
