Hi Noel,

I would leave it as is, it looks too damned good now to mess with. Of course, if you think you can improve it, I also believe you know what you are doing, So?

Whatever you do, I'm sure it will look as great as all your work does! My biggest problem in modeling has always been to know when to stop, so I can sympathize!

So true, Bob! No matter the experience or the pattern of technique one uses, it's always 'knowing when to stop' that's fundamental!

@ Richard...thanks......glad you liked it!

Yesterday (Saturday afternoon) Tancred and myself got together for a modeling session!

Tancred did some work on his BT-5 and I gave a base coat of paint to my Wespe..... we later went to see and art exhibition and now are trying how to juggle between modelling time and art time! Very Happy Apart from models, Tancred, like me, also paints in watercolour.

At my House. Tancred on the left. Note no beers on the table!

i have some questions now:

- where have you hidden the beer? under the table? in the cupboard? in the corner of the table that is covered by tancred? Suspect
- who made the photo?
- i see you use a H&S evolution ... which one?

to your wespe: this camo will look great on your model and no whitewash is a very good decision!

At the moment I'm airbrushing the Wespe and stopped for a small break... and before my 14 year old daughter wakes up (she's here from Italy to stay a while with me) and takes over my computer! Evil or Very Mad

The spagetti camo came out just fine , looks great .


I'm not 100% sure , ........... but here in the states there's a law or something , ........... or maybe you need a doctors prescription to drink non alcoholic beer .............................

I must admit I was a little shocked ............

lllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllll

Well, it's a small sacrifice I had to make, but it was worth it, nothing better than seeing Noel at work in person.

Maybe next time I'll get my own beer.

The cammo came good for you. Looks like you are onto another great diorama Noel!

you know that you still have the backdoor of mead? mead isn't forbidden for muslims!

and four wifes means four mothers-in-law affraid ... i don't think four mothers-in-law are that desirable! better think of having had a lot of luck having only one!

camo stripes may be your nightmare but they turned out excellent! your wespe's becoming better and better!

Great paint job, Noel!

It is always nice to put a face on those I talk to! So now when I post on your's and Tancred's threads, I know what you look like!

Cheyenne, I think that non-alcoholic beer comes under the twenty third amendment to the constitution, strictly forbidden!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Noel , ............ I was just kidding , ............ actually I don't drink much either , ......... diabetes [ sp ? ]
Although I do push the limit sometimes , .............. old habits Laughing

If you've seen the movie SAHARA with Bogie there's a very cool scene with the GI from Texas and the south African Tambu [ sp ? ] , ............

They're in the well and the Texan says to Tambu " I hear you guys can have four wives "
Tambu answers " Yes this is true "
The Texan asks him how many wives does he have .................
Tambu answers " Only one "
The Texan says " What's holding you back ? "
Tambu answers " If this was true in your country , ......... how many wives would your wife let you have ......................... "

Again Noel,

You're chiping is one of the best I've ever seen, the light and then the dark chiping gives it a sort of depth, don't know how to say it correctly.
Think I going to give it a try on my StuH! Thankss for the SBS!
