They look good, imho!

How thick are your bases, by the by?
They are mounted on mounting card , thick card maybe a couple of mm thick, I have chamfered the edges as well

It will turn up around 5 minutes after you've completed the replacement piece...  :?

The models look good.

Searched every inch of my floor and couldn't find the missing hatch so I made one out of green stuff and a press mould
With the three foot rule I think it looks OK

Looking at the back of the models there appears to be a  recessed section I can't find any pics of what this is supposed to be?

So I am going to load some storage in here

What do you think?

Looking good. I can't tell which one has the replacement.

Been waiting on the supposed correct colour of paint to finish these and painting other ones
The picture above shows the bronze green
And the picture below shows my darkened version

Been building some scenery
I thought a petrol station would be a good objective
A web search found one by a member of this forum 'tactical painter' had one that looked ideal
I have ordered the forecourt bits and started building

While waiting on the ordered bits and have been trying to stick downloaded posters to the model
Just the big door and the windows to fit

They don't look right what am I doing wrong using PVA to try and stick them down

Looking good Colin!

I was wondering, maybe paint use watered down pva over the poster while it's in place? That might help it stick more realistically. Also maybe a little brown wash along the edges will remove the 'brand new' look to the posters.

Cheers
Andy

I've been good thanks. It's been ages! I hope you and the family are well.

Hmm, have you tried a less dilute mixture? Perhaps 3 parts PVA to 1 part water? I suppose it could also be the ink in your printer.
