Dude im rolling!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I have a couple of questions for the man himself here.
What mix ratio do you use when mixing the greens 78+159?
What type of brush do you use, if any, when doing fine details?
Is any type of primer ok, or are there specific ones that work well with Humbrol?
Do you use thinner, if so, what type and at what ratio do you mix it?
Other than that, awesome paintwork!!! This will be my bible when my BM lid gets here, which is soon hopefully. Been almost 8 months now:P

Hi cr4nky, the 78+159 mix is normally 1:1 though i think slightly more 159 should be added to taste (not literally of course) The brush i use isnt a brush but a silicone shaper: 0 angle chisel soft colour shaper by Royal Sovereign ltd UK. The application is much easier and finer detailing can be achieved, also no clogging brush bristles! The primer is a standard acrylic based auto primer in a can. I use the Humbrol enamel thinner approx 2:1 paint to thinners...Hope this helps and i look forward to your progress thread when you receive your helmet!
that clears out a lot for me. Just waiting on whether they will ship enmels to me or not from the states...
Hey cr4nky, why don´t you let them be shipped to you from GB or germany? We have those colors here too. Wouldn´t it be cheaper to norway?
Yeah, probably Just didn´t find a European webshop. Shipping wasn´t that bad though, as long as the number of paints was fairly high. Hopefully I´ll get an answer from them tomorrow on it. Although it does seem like they will ship it, they´ve accepted my payment, and seem to be a serious enough shop. Fingers crossed
If you have any good sites I can buy from, I´d appreciate a PM with them though

That's looking fabulous. May I ask what make of helmet that is? Yours?
Do you know if white spirit can be used as thinner with Humbrol?
How long do you let the paint cure for after application before you start to outline and mask? I know they say you should wait 6 hours before recoating and 24 hours for it to fully cure.
I was just wondering. How does the green mix for the left ear compare to the POG from the Rogues studios list? Do you know?
Sounds great. As I told my garrison mate, as long as the green is close to the original the difference after all the weathering and washes won't really be that big.
Some of the best paint work I've seen in a reeeally long time.
Amazed at your work T.F.
why in the world is this thread not a sticky?>????!?!?!?!?!?!!!!????????????
