    Oh there are all kinds of magnifying glass stands[ with clips for holding minis or without) or head-worn magnifying glasses that you can get for $10-$20 dollars.

    What it takes to make the camouflage whatever the size. Been there, done that . If you mean that. I will put a couple of my 12-year old start--jobs here. The ww1 planes are a pain in the ****. But look great. Cheers.

    My father before his death threw pretty close all my painted miniatures into trash. I only got one Comet, one Ju 87 and one tank-buster Africa Hurricane left of those.. And my first Catalina.
    I did however start painting some "newer" models but did not have the time to finish them. Sme photos of those here, Hannover fighter WW1, and I think Tempeat fighter the other, of what I had time to paint. I like painting pilots, because that takes nerves. ;) ;I
    I wente even into takimg a matchbox booklet from the store to see the paimtimg style of ww2.....Ouch!

    And My view after starting painting... a bit too colourful?

    Thank you very much. I spend a few hours on each kinds of models. This time, I have repaint the model completely because I was not happy with the result.

    Those are my eyes when I need precision. They cost me about 25$ only.

    Even so, great work.
    Got an Airfix Battle of Britain dispersal set I bought about ten years ago, still lying half-built in the box. Saying that, I only ever started painting the actual dispersal, never mind building the vehicles or Spitfire.
    Should maybe take a leaf out of you guys' books.
