    Ah Roland....no legs I presume.....
    As for Harry, I like the wise words from Zura in your signature.
    Got one that looks like it... "Alcohol kills you slowly....so glad I'm not in a hurry"

    Did make a lot of TB-scalemodels in the last few years.
    Look at https://diggelenhans.wixsite.com/scalemodelling/past-productions in the Thunderbirds-are-go section.

    Looks good Nap

    Hi everyone

    Bit of verbal update ....

    working on lacework ....

    after base of Matt black , mix of Warpaints "filthy suit" dark gray , gradual lighten , then using Reaper weathered stone with again keep lightening , and then using various mixes of these plus Vallejo silver gray and white gray will continue with very final highs in pure white

    I have added a central line of lace down the front and around the collar

    .....at the moment !!.....but might take it out!

    image.jpg

    ..hopefully getting the result I want !!

    Using this pics of lace as well

    image.jpeg

    And his foe the sash as well as lace

    image.jpeg

    Looked at pics again ......."thinking" about adding the cap ......

    image.jpeg

    Stay tuned !
