Excellent work Fabian! Keep it up

For you guys building the 2019 version, is the bottom rear of your turrets different than previous versions? Fabian's looks smooth with no long joint mating the side plate and the bottom plate. Just curious.

Thanks
Robert

Sprayed the primer on the turret of my lili 😉
Hello Fabian, excellent work you show here, very nice!

In the pictures where you have spray painted the primer on the turret, you show three colours, do you use two primer coats and is the sand yellow the topcoat already or primer as well?

You also mention the use of Mr Surfacer, is that one of these layers maybe?
Kind regards,
Roy

Primer =grijs
Mr surfacer 500 =metaal effect het geribbelde structuur.
3de= oxide rood.
4de laag = eind kleur zandgeel
Daar na nog airbrush camo er op

Yes that is correct, and so are you i see :-)

You have a nice project going here, I am waiting for my first Armortek model, it will be a StuG. I am now trying to prepare myself for construction, and it is very educational to see here what and how others do things :-)

Sorry about that Bryan, you are completely right, just a matter of habit falling back in native language :-)

Hi Fabian, four layers you say, the primer and surfacer i understand, is the red oxide layer ment to acquire a good adhesian for the final paint to the surfacer layer?
In other words, can’t the final layer be sprayed directly onto the surfacer layer?

Thx!
Kind regards,
Roy
