hi Guys,

it seems that the ffl is going to some sort of revival seeing al those fantastic posts on the forum. Now i have painted my arabs so now its time for their enymies the ffl. So here are some wip pictures. Now these are going to be done in my own" speedpainting" method so with any luck these wil only take me a couple of months :-D :-D :-D

First (and most annoing ) step is removing flesh and mouldlines…. i really hate this step !
But i also had some old airfix figures with a lot of extra plastic so this had to be done
Image

Next step wash a little washing up
Image

After that just let them dry

Image
As you can see the mould wasnt that good anymore. Some datails were missing which is not the quality you expect of italeri….

Image

at the end they wil look something like this (i hope :-D )

Image

Then i spraypainted the whole lot and the first basecolor blue went on.
Image

to be continued,,,,

Laterrrrrrr

dykio, I'm happy to see that you have a "speedpainting" method similar to mine (although I'm sure that you will finish your figures much earlier than me). :lol:

I also hate the process of removing flash and mouldlines...but I hate more to paint figures not flash free.

Great beginning with these wonderful figures from Esci/Italeri and Airfix. Go on with them! You have my complete support. :yeah:

Santi.

Thanks fellow painters!,

@susofrick It has been a long time since i was active on the hobby but i'm Always watching al the amazing work presented by the fellow members. But sometimes i just lack the inspiration to do something myself. Usually when autumn comes and the weather is getting worse is for me the moment to pick it up again!

Back to this topic, the best football player ever once said : every disadvantage has an advantage (i hope i translate is right in dutch it says: ieder nadeel heeft zijn voordeel.... As perhaps some of you might know i have crohn's disease. and the last couple of days is forced me to stay in house. But it also gave me the time to finish these ffl-figures, So up to the galery they go !!

I'm in a space right now to completely relate to your feelings. I'm sorry your crohn's is keeping you indoors but glad to know it gave you an opportunity to find your inspiration!
