    This is an old post obviously (6 years old actually) but curious if there are folks on the boards still doing these?

    Removable weathering

    Well said...had no intent to hijack...keep debating on going back and forth between the two (removable or more durable). Thx for the info though! Good to get as many opinions as possible before I launch

    Thx for the tip! Found some black matte acrylic at Michaels I’m going to give a shot..it’s their basic brand...woodland scenic seems to get a lot of use on the boards...will have to get some of that and compare!

    Weathering question

    Any ideas where this came from? I really like this look...(credit to whomever this is...can’t recall where I snagged this pic) (cross posted from FB)

    Weathering question

    Thx much! I keep flip flopping but think I’m going to give acrylic paint a shot just to keep the powder mess to a minimum since my kit comes inside (vs a garage) after troops

    Electrobinoculars build

    Gaskets and a little bit of red added Not it certain I’m happy with the mustard technique, it doesn’t come off easily and once painted/sanded looks more like grime (which is fine but not what I was going for in those areas). oh well can always be tweaked if I want to come back to it later

    Doesn’t the hairspray make your armor sticky to the touch?

    Weathering question

    Re: weathering...do you apply the eyeshadow and/or charcoal and some other product to set it? i seem to recall hairspray being mentioned but won’t that make your armor sticky?
