Over the holidays I've had a chance to work on some models and have enjoyed constructing Infront Models (www.infrontmodels.com.au) Arnotts Biscuit Van. It is a straight forward model to build. I have weathered mine quite a bit and added some patching plates along one side to indicate the repair of some damage.
The decals were the hardest part – I used the microsol stuff to help bed down – it took a good ¾ hr or more to apply them, just getting them right and straight. I painted and weathered with sprayed base coats, powders, washes and dry brushing using both Tamiya and Citadel acrylics. (Washes were with both water and isosopropyl.
