The Sugar sands very well, using 600grit wet-dry, and adheres very well to
both the styrene and ABS components of the model, I intentionally did not
prime first.  It did not lift up and pill during sanding and I couldn’t scrape
if off with my fingernail.
So far, it’s looking very good.  :thumbsup:

I'll have to get some and try it myself.  So many colours to choose from though...

Note that it is quite heavy bodied as it’s highly pigmented and really intended for
graffiti-type street art. I’ve not tried it on yet on anything with fine panel lines,
but I have a hunch it’ll make a good colourcoat for a car model, it’d need a
gloss over top of course, so I’ll be testing a couple of different gloss coats.

So far it’s looking like a good addition to the arsenal.  :thumbsup:

It was for car models I was wanting it.  I like to have a selection of colours on the shelf and at the price they are selling these for that is doable.
I'll use a Racing GB build as a guinea pig.

The Sugar is looking good re details, this is Decay on the 1/200 B-52 speed build.
I made no attempt to go for a thin application, just blasted it on, thus the pebbly
finish, you’ll see that the fine inscribed panel lines came through.
Well, except for where I sanded them away and didn’t bother rescribing.
 :wacko:
 
I applied a wash to the ines with black from a Gundam weathering marker

Note that it looks metallic because of the lighting, the paint is not metallic.

Yeah, yeah, yeah HCF, all very impressive with the paint, but....................

Is that a SOCKING great bomb under the starboard wing, and why there rather than in the bomb bay?  ;D ;D ;D ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That's one of those MOAB deep penetrator bombs right ?

Photos of the completed slam build, I probably won’t flat over the decals as the
glossiness works for the purpose, it’s for an artist friend. Jason is a spraycan/graffiti
artist/street artist, what ever term you want to use, who has been doing a series of
political paintings, on panels and canvas folks not walls ;), that use stenciled images
of B-52s, bombs, explosions, soldiers and police in full modern US military kit etc. The
latter look even more disturbingly alien as blocky two or three tone stenciled images than
they do in real life. He utilizes judicious placement of flourescent paint highlights that
reinforce violent aspects of the images when under UV light.
He also owns the JAG Art Supply where I get the Sugar paint, along with Molotow and Flame
spray paints, all good stuff. JAG = Jason A. Grim, Jason or Grim for short.  ;D :thumbsup:

So, the grey is the Sugar, the middle stone is Vallejo Air, the green is Vallejo UK armor
Bronze Green, I just grabbed what I had on hand. The bombs are from the parts
box, as I said before the engines are from a cheapy pre-built 747 display model, and
I mounted the inboard engines where the Houndog pylons were supposed to go, the
ludicrously big bombs are where the outboard engines mount on a normal build.  ;D
It was the first outing for my new iwata HP-M2 low pressure single action gravity
feed 7ml paint cup airbrush. It’s lovely and will become my workhorse.


Decals are from an Academy 1/72nd F-86E kit, chosen and placed for look not
accuracy.  ;)
As you can see the bombs have stereotypical rude inscriptions, old Citadel Bone White
applied with a brush, I redacted the one on the posted close up image, I’m sure most
will recognize the provenance of that one and the FU tail codes are intentionally
naughty. :wacko:
You can barely see it on the pics but the engine fan hubs, bombtips, and the gatling stinger
with it’s radar/sensor domes are all ponced up with a Molotow Chrome marker - which is a
fantastic thing I cannot recommend to much.  Oh yeah Jason sells those too, and the
refill bottle.  :thumbsup:

So I was inspired to do this silly thing as a piss take on the bomb-bomb-bomb mindset
by his paintings and I’ll give it to him to hang in the shop.

So this is what happened after Odekirk and Palmer ran into Dr. Vogt at the Brown Derby.
The weekend was legendary, but what they discovered on Palmer's drawing board when
they awoke hungover on Monday morning was quickly hidden away and all  three agreed
it never happened, that "what happens in Hollywood, stays in Hollywood" a slogan later
stolen by the upstarts in the Nevada desert.



Really quick-n-dirty Photoshop.
