    Nice models up there.

    Hey got a question for you though. I use watered down oil to fill in panel lines and give them definition. What do you use ndicki?

    Much the same - watered down Humbrol essentially, with the tones chosen fron dark browns and dark greys, usually, although I have sometimes used pale greys for , say, where the lines cross through the black part of German crosses, etc.

    Talking of which, if Airfix has gone down the drain, then so has Humbrol...

    Cool was just wondering if there were other techniques out there, but we basically use the same technique.

    I've heard of some people who use pastels and crayons, but I've never tried. Could be good for weathering over US Olive Drab 41, etc.

    I suppose the dust gets trapped in the panel lines. Seems a bit iffy to me...

    I haven't tried it. Might be OK on vehicles, they're supposed to look filthy anyway!
