New hobby supplies bought and arrived.

Yesterday I was at the local hoppy shop and bought a few canvases and some clay.

Canvas and clay

I intend to use the canvases as bases for mini dios for two of my models, the Warrior and the M3A1 Scout. I might need a somewhat larger canvas for the Warrior as the soldiers might need a larger area to be placed on.
The clay is for shaping the ground on the canvases. I think it should be quite easy to do tracks in the clay, and then paint when the clay has dried.

Today I got a parcel with the colours I’ve ordered.

I ordered a few of Vallejos new metal colours as I wanted to try them out. Rumours say they are quite good! I’ll have to try them as soon as possible.
Black is always needed and the other colour are for my Lightning, so now I can start masking and painting the top side camo.

Newly bought neccessities.

I picked up a parcel today with 2 needed items for my builds.

Argentinian AF colours and nozzle for my airbrush.
Argentinian AF colours and one .4 nozzle for my airbrush

So now I have the paint needed for my Argentinian Mirage and the nozzle will hopefully solve the problem I have with my airbrush.

Collected some colours for my little MiG-29! 🙂

Looks like I have a good excuse to get myself another MiG-29 in a little larger scale than 1/144th.

I got three parcels collected today at different delivery stations. First one Molotov liquid chrome refill and then some more neccessary colours.

Lastly I got help to collect the last parcel with these two kits.

Quite cool and I’m very happy! 🙂

Latest arrival to my hobby room.

Today I got a pretty large box, delivered by UPS at my door. From the start I was only supposed to get micromesh and polishing compounds, and maybe some colours, but I just happened to see that they had this kit at a reduced price.

It’s not often I buy kits like this, but at a price much lower than in my local hobby shop, it was a no brainer.

Now I just need to collect the guts to build it. Does it need any extras? Not sure I’m gonna bother as it’s pretty good as it is.

Vallejo Metallic effects set – just arrived

I just got this set of metallic effects.

I’m really looking forward to trying them out and I think the Gannet will be my test object. I also have the engines and exhaust to the Fullback to try on.

Hopefully I can give a report soon.
