    A little step away from my usual ancient stuff
    This one which was unearthed in a dark corner in the house for some 20 years

    Made a start on the painting of the leather jacket .
    Usual primers and an Undercoat of Tamya wood deck tan applied with airbrush left to dry overnight
    and a top coat of Burnt Umber oils ,same as the boots ,then lifted off with fresh dry brushes to allow the undercoat to shine thru a bit .

    The A2 turned out very realistic using that method Ron. It has just the right amount of sheen too (y) . Are you going to paint any 'nose art' on the back? You know, one of those scantily clad dames :).
