Found on Twitter.




Surprise!



J'aime comment tous les détails y sont: OK-1.02 (1è image) et OK-MT (2è) ont chacune leurs particularités: dérive différente, tuiles thermiques sous le nez, tuiles manquantes, trappes ouvertes, etc. Peu verront ces détails, mais c'est ce qui fait vraiment la différence.

I like his paint wash methods. Fairly simple and they look effective.

I also liked his Tinker-Toy tree-making technique. Not completely original but really nicely done  :smiley:

I finally understand what Vallejo means by "wet on wet" painting - which is apparently not the same as what I understood as "wet on wet"
 
It would have saved me a lot of frustration with their paint if they'd used a different terminology. He paints Vallejo on a previously wetted (with water) surface to paint this Humvee:

1/720 or 1/350 scale?

By the end of WWII, American industrial might and the need to fight on two fronts resulted in the U.S. Navy having a greater tonnage of combatant ships than all other navies combined. In 1947, the U.S. had 3,820,000 tons versus the world's combined 2,860,000 tons.

These massed parking lots/graveyards in 1;1200 or smaller 3D prints would make spectacular forced-perspective bases for standard scale aircraft.
