    So more time spent in the spraying (utility) room last night and i am a lot happier with the colour now. I can use this as the base and shade/ highlight add in some darker and lighter tones. I couldn't say what the final colour used was as it was a mix of Vallejo sand as a base followed by AK interactives US vehicles base and British sand yellow, mixed to give a custom colour, then dusted with British sand yellow. I have to say though that the AK paint's were an absolute pig to airbrush, supposed to be airbrush ready from the bottle - they weren't !, and even when mixed with their own thinner they still kept blocking up the nozzle - no matter what pressure was used, tried from 15psi upto 25psi - nothing came out but air, why cant every brand just spray like Tamiya's paints !.

    What a difference a day makes, twenty-four little hours, my camel gloom has faded away and sunny times are here to stay :) - Apologies to Dinah Washington :eek: . Well I am a lot happier with the camel after last nights painting session, a myriad of sand tones, yellow tones, grey brown tones applied as glazes and i have something i like. I had to try putting some colour on the camels Armour to see how its all going to look, and the word would be impressive. Next up is her knees and hooves, mouth and teeth. About the mouth, I couldn't believe that when you look inside the mouth, RP have even sculpted the rear molars - unbelievable detail in this scale.

    After getting home from walking the dog followed by a nice pint in a local beer garden, evening meal at home and tidying up it was getting a bit late to get the hairy sticks out, so I decided to do some more research on camels !, of all things. One area i was interested in, after looking at the RP camel, was the ankle ornaments, and after comparing the resin version to the real life ones, again you can see how much time was invested in creating the model, the level of detail is outstanding, from the cords and bracelets right down to the tiny bells - amazing !

    Spent an enjoyable hour or so last night painting Camilla's Mouth, teeth and tongue. Also painted in the rest of the leather head harness;

    Just a couple of touch ups required, but should be fixed with an ink wash around the leather. Next up will be the ankle jewelry.

    Every lady deserves jewelry, so Camilla's gold ankle bracelets and bells have been added, shame about her knees and joints - that's what you get for not applying moisturiser. :ROFLMAO:

    Just rhymes thats all - ohhh i see what you mean 'Sir' :sneaky: .

    Yep really enjoying this one, I have made a few mistakes along the way, but at the moment a couple of washes, glazes seems to be saving me.

    The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry;
    Wife working all weekend, daughter working Sunday, my son at Silverstone, so a Sunday of painting to look forward to - BUT No, over stretched myself at the gym and put my right arm totally out of action :mad: . Couldn't even pick up a paintbrush without a lot of pain :( . Got some Ibuprofen Gel and by bedtime it was feeling a lot better, so need to get back to painting, but first Toy Story 4 tonight :D

    Not had much bench time with one thing and another, but I have slowly been working on the rugs. Last update for me for a couple of weeks as off to orlando today for 2 weeks.
