More modeling content

Listeners of the podcast know that one of my goals in each modeling project is to try new things. One of my current projects is really allowing me to do that. I am building the Minicraft B-52H for my brother who spent 20 years flying them. It is my first 1/144 scale kit (new thing #1)

While working on the kit, I used Tamiya lacquers for the first time. (new thing #2) See previous blog post. Also, on the recommendation of my podcast partner, I tried Citadel’s Nuln Oil shader. (new thing #3) So far I really like the way it came out.

Some actual modeling content.

I know actual modeling content has been a bit thin on the ground here for a while. My apologies. I hope to fix that starting now.

Recently, I accidentally discovered a brand new hobby shop in Sellersburg, IN. Upscaled has been operating about two months.

They have a great selection of paint lines, including the new Tamiya lacquer paint line. I’ve been wanting to try these,especially their metallics. I picked some up. Yesterday I used them for the first time. I must say my first impressions are good.

This is the Flat Aluminum

So far, so good. I will keep you posted.
